If you’ve got the game to sport the aggro look—especially the loud and proud orange frames—the Instinct won’t let you down. Julbo’s new Zebra photochromic proprietary resin lenses work magic in low light, pointing up detail and contrast so much that you’ll swear you’re wearing high beams. The wide, full-coverage, tea-tinted lenses block roughly 60 to 90 percent of visible light, good for most places this side of the Khumbu Icefall. Generously clad with sticky rubber, the springy nylon frames hang on tight.
Bonus: The price leaves spare change for optional lenses, though we can’t imagine removing the Zebra.
Bummer: No blending into the crowd wearing these. www.julbousa.com
