I bought these glasses to use for kayaking and other outdoor activities.They are really great. I love how they stay secure on my face and I don't have to worry about them falling into the lake. They come with a detachable strap to make them even more secure. Great product!
Did you recently buy the Julbo Race Sunglasses (w/ Octopus Hydrophobic Lenses)? Write a review.

good use for over a month has proven that these are good quality. This is my first set of julbos and they are nice shades. Good vision, clean design, great protection. They will fog a bit, but having recently used them in the rain the fogging was minimal, while the hydrophobic properties shined. These are not too big for a smaller face although they aren't a wrap (they sit off the face a bit)Pros: hydrophobic, straps (retention), Cons: case is not 2 durable, silicon pieces are not secure
Julbo 4 ever

There are several things that make these sunglasses perfect for me. First of all it fits perfectly: Eyebrows don't touch the frame, wide field of vision, firm fit. I have used the glasses twice since I bought them. Once for mountainbiking - the glasses are well ventilated so they didn't fog up. The second time I used them on my boat. The Octopus lense really lives up to its promise. Splash water just rolls off the lenses. That's very convenient. I think it's great that Julbo delivers this strap to secure the glasses in "dangerous" situations. But I personally cannot imagine wearing the strap unless I'd be somewhere in a heavy storm on the ocean - As I mentioned the glasses fit perfectly. Enough positive feedback, there are two things that bother me: Firstly, why can't I find any spare lenses online? For instance, I'd love to put some fog lenses in the frame, too. Secondly, the rubber inlays do not seem to be very robust to me. But we will see... I remember my first Julbo (that I wore for 8 years!) also had rubber inlays and they never got lost. So no need to worry. Conclusion: I love my new Julbo. I have used Julbo for the last decade and I will use Julbo for the next decade, too.Pros: secure fit, hydrophobic lenses
