Heron Glacier was the foundation of VALLON as a brand. We set out to re-invent glacier glasses and create an affordable pair, inspired by classic alpine design, that incorporates the latest high-performance materials. 

The frame is made from Swiss-invented TR90® polyamide. The sunglasses are therefore incredibly lightweight and comfortable. The brown-tinted category 4 lens is optimal for snow as its warm perception enhances contrasts. The 2mm thick polycarbonate lens is shatterproof for added safety. The lens is also fully mirror-coated which has the bonus of being anti-reflective. The leather side shields protect the eyes from side glare, while anti-fog coating is applied to prevent condensation. Heron Glacier is a must-have for ski enthusiasts and explorers alike. You will never again want to go ski touring without them. 

Sizing:
The frame fits both men and women. The rounded temples ensure the sunglasses stay put at all times. The temples can easily be shaped for a more comfortable fit around your ears. If you have any questions about sizing please get in touch

I'm loving them!

Nicely made and quality product! Lightweight, robust yet flexible. The side shields fit perfectly on my face and offer a good protection against the sun glare form the snow.

Great Style, good costumer Service, comfortable fit

I bought the glasses mainly for skitouring, after the helpful costumer service, I was able to fit the glasses perfectly to my face (although they may bend out of shape in the case/pocket, but they´re easy to refit). I was really impressed and happy that they don´t fog up when exercising, which was a great concern of mine. The leather is very soft and comfortable, not sure how durable it is, after using it for a longer time as it seems quite thin and soft. The glasses are surprisingly light and I´m very happy to have them, i already got so many comments/compliments from people as you do stand out in a crowd wearing them. Even though they´re made for the glacier, they´re not extremely dark, so you can also use them in not so bright conditions. Great Product
