Collection: Mountain glasses with Category 3 Smoke lenses


Hiking in the mountains is the ultimate goal for every trekker. Achieving the perfect excursion requires the use of technical materials, which are essential for comfort and safety. The market now offers a wide range of products to suit every budget, ranging from technical shoes to underwear, clothing, and accessories.

When it comes to eye protection, there are various lines of glasses available that are suitable for mountain use. While there are dedicated lines of glasses specifically designed for trekking, mountaineering, or climbing, many versatile options can serve multiple purposes in mountain environments.

Hikers wear mountain glasses with mirrored smoke lenses

When it comes to Trekking, DEMON has developed a dedicated line of mountain glasses featuring smoke lenses. These lenses are designed to allow trekkers to fully immerse themselves in the mountain experience, focusing solely on the emotions that the mountains evoke.

Mountain glasses with smoke lenses, tailored for trekking, differ significantly from mountaineering glasses in terms of lens type, although certain models retain the same frame and associated technologies. While trekkers share similar needs with mountaineers, they typically do not require darker lenses for extremely bright conditions or exposure to stronger UV rays commonly found at very high altitudes.

Smoke category 3 for hiking sunglasses

Technical characteristics of mountain glasses with smoke lenses:

    • Smoke Lenses Category 3: The Category 3 smoke lens for mountain glasses is an excellent choice for trekking enthusiasts. In fact, it offers clearer vision compared to Category 4 lenses typically used in mountaineering. This Category 3 mountain smoke lens is particularly recommended for excursions below 3000m, providing optimal protection for the trekker's eyes even on extremely sunny days with prolonged use.
    • Shatterproof lenses: 

      The Category 3 smoke lenses of the mountain glasses are crafted from high-quality polycarbonate. These lenses not only provide protection from light and UV rays but also ensure safety in the event of accidental impacts. They are specifically designed with safety in mind. Polycarbonate is the optimal material for constructing safe lenses for sports glasses.
      In the event of a significant impact, the lens distributes the force across its entire surface, preventing the formation of small fragments that could potentially harm the eyes. This creates a web-like effect that maintains the integrity of the lens.

    • Ultralight and elastic frames: All the frames of the mountain glasses with smoke lenses are made of TR90, a special composition of Nylon and Carbon fiber. This hypoallergenic composition ensures that it does not irritate the skin even with prolonged use and in harsh weather conditions. TR90 is 20% lighter than conventional frame materials, making it more resistant to both high and low temperatures, impacts, mechanical stresses, and more durable over time. The rubberized parts are crafted from soft Megol, a hypoallergenic material that enhances comfort, grip, and stability of the glasses on the face.
    • Other technologies: 

      OUTDOOR is equipped with a removable sweat sponge that is hypoallergenic and serves to prevent lateral light filtering, further protecting the eyes from air and cold.
      The models OUTDOOR, DOME, EIGER, and PLANET are equipped with an adjustable and removable elastic cord, increasing the stability of the glasses on the face. The DOME model also features removable side panels, making the glasses less "mountain-like" if used for other sports as well.

Smoke category 3 lenses for ski mountaineering sunglasses

Mountain glasses with category 3 smoke lenses can also be used for all other sports in direct contact with sunlight. Due to the darkness of the lenses, they can be replaced with common sunglasses even for everyday use. From a safety standpoint, they provide optimal protection against accidental impacts.
