Mountaineering sunglasses makalu category 4 for high mountain

The category 4 lenses of the glacier glasses are made of top quality and optically perfect polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is the material that allows the lenses to be lighter and safer. In fact, in the event of an accidental impact, the polycarbonate unlike glass does not release small fragments that could damage the eye. In fact, polycarbonate is also used for protective glasses. The category 4 lens is a must for those who love the mountains. Using unsuitable lenses in the high mountains leads to a noticeable reddening of the eyes at the end of the day, and in some cases even tearing. With a forced stop of about 48 hours. Using suitable lenses category 4 not only protects 100% from UV rays, but with a darker base it allows you to relax your eyes and enjoy the path only.


The removable sweat sponge in soft neoprene is hypoallergenic, it prevents those annoying drops of sweat from reaching our eyes during periods of greatest fatigue. Moreover, it prevents the light from filtering laterally generating those annoying reflections. Furthermore, it does not effectively allow small leaves, dust, small dirt to come into contact with our eyes.

    IT: Ho preso i Makalu per utilizzarli su ghiacciaio/neve. Sono stati veramente ottimi, leggeri, stabili con il laccetto dietro, si appannano in certe condizioni (come tutti gli occhiali), però subito dopo riescono a ristabilire la visibilità eliminando la condensa. Esteticamente possono risultare un po’ grandi su visi magri (come il mio), ma in compenso si ha una maggiore protezione del volto … come quando viene giù del nevischio. Poi un plauso speciale va all’assistenza clienti, in particolare al sig. Matteo, che è stato di una disponibilità assoluta.

    EN: I took the Makalu to use them on the glacier / snow. They were really good, light, stable with the back strap, misted up in certain conditions (like all glasses), but immediately afterwards they succeeded in restoring visibility by eliminating condensation. Aesthetically they can be a little big on thin faces (like mine), but on the other hand there is greater protection of the face … like when some sleet comes down. Then a special praise goes to the customer assistance, in particular to Mr. Matteo, who was of absolute availability.

    DE: Brille ist absolut TOP! Tönung der Gläser ist sehr angenehm und die Verarbeitung ist klasse. Wenn man das gesamte Schwamm Schweißleder abnimmt, läuft sie nicht an beim Schwitzen und sitzt immer noch sehr gut. Auch der nichtgewollte ungefilterte Lichteinfall ist kaum bis nicht vorhanden.
    Einziges Manko ist, dass ich sie in Schwarz bestellt habe es aber ein Gemisch aus ganz dunkelblauem Rahmen (fast schwarz) und Bügel aus marrone/cristallo ist.
    Trotzdem fünf Sterne, für die Qualität!

    EN: Glasses are absolutely TOP! The tint of the glasses is very pleasant and the processing is great. If you take off the entire sponge of sweat leather, it won’t tarnish when you sweat and it still fits very well. Even the unwanted unfiltered incidence of light is hardly or not available.
    The only drawback is that I ordered it in black but it is a mixture of a very dark blue frame (almost black) and a frame made of brown / Crystal.
    Five stars, for the quality!
