Nice for casual wear

I was in search of galcier glasses for hiking in Katmai this summer. I heard great reviews of the Julbo glasses from other pages, and went for these thinking the womens fit would be great for my small face. Although these are great glasses, they are not snug enough to the face for ice/snow with intense sun conditions. I am still looking for something to offer a more complete coverage from the sun. I have tried on all the Julbo glasses currently on the market and the explorer (glacier glasses) are too wide for my face, likely going to look into motorcycle glasses for a better fit. I would recommend these for moderate sunlight conditions, although they are not recommended for driving, so be cautious.Pros: great lenses
Great Antifog Sunglasses

I first saw these Camel lens on a guide in Chile and then discovered all the outdoor guides had them. The lens is great although the glasses fit a little large on me. I like the wrap around protection the glasses give as well as the clear visuals.
Already own the Julbo Monterosa Sunglasses (w/ Camel Antifog Lenses)? Tell us your thoughts.
Good glasses, not quite glacier classes

There glasses were amazing as sunglasses, and the camel antifog lenses were exactly what I was looking for. However I needed glasses to keep out reflected light off ice/snow as well as blowing ash and pumice. These glasses may have been ok for just bright conditions, but they were not what I needed. I ended up going with climate controlled riding glasses. I would recommend these for harsh sun conditions, but maybe not for extreme weather and sun conditions. Seemed sturdy and great aside from not being snug to my face.Pros: polarized, photochromic, Cons: too large for small face
