Also, for the protection of the eyes there are lines of glasses that can also be used in the mountain area, although there are real lines of glasses dedicated solely to the practice of: Trekking, Mountaineering or Climbing.
As far as Trekking is concerned, DEMON has created a real line of outdoor glasses with smoke lenses to allow the trekker to experience the mountains at 360 ° concentrating only and solely on the emotions that the mountain offers.
The outdoor glasses with smoke lenses dedicated to the practice of trekking differ substantially from the mountaineering glasses by type of lens, while some models remain unchanged in the frame and in the technologies connected to it.
In fact, those who practice trekking have similar needs with respect to those who practice mountaineering, but at the same time they do not need darker lenses for very strong light conditions or exposure to stronger UV rays typical of very high altitudes.
Technical characteristics of outdoor glasses with smoke lenses:
Smoke lenses Category 3: the smoke lens category 3 for outdoor glasses is an excellent lens for those who practice trekking, in fact it is clearer than the category 4 lenses generally used for mountaineering. The outdoor category 3 smoke lens is particularly recommended for excursions below 3000m, and is able to better protect the eyes of the trekker with very intense sunny days even for very prolonged use.
Shatterproof lenses: Smoke category 3 lenses for outdoor glasses are made of top-quality polycarbonate. Not only are the eyes protected from light and UV rays, but also in the event of accidental impacts. The lenses of outdoor glasses with smoke lenses are also studied in the aspect of safety. Polycarbonate is the best material for building safe lenses for sports glasses.
In the event of a very strong impact the lens distributes the shock throughout the surface avoiding the creation of small fragments that could damage the eye. Forming a spider web effect that invalidates the lens.
Ultra-light and elastic frames: All frames of outdoor glasses with smoke lenses are in TR90, a special composition of Nylon and Carbon fiber. The composition is hypoallergenic and does not irritate the skin even for prolonged use and with prohibitive weather conditions. The TR90 is 20% lighter than the material used for frames constructed with conventional materials, more resistant to high and low temperatures, more resistant to impact and mechanical traction and more durable over time. The rubber parts are in soft Megol, an allergic material that improves comfort and increases the grip of the glasses and stability to the face.
Other technologies: The ASPEN model is equipped with a removable sweat sponge, also hypoallergenic and serves to prevent lateral filtering of light and to protect the eyes more from air and cold. The MASTERPIECE - SOLID - ASPEN - CURVE models are equipped with an adjustable and removable elastic cord that increases the stability of the glasses to the face. The MASTERPIECE model is equipped with removable side bulkheads at will to make the glasses less "mountain" if also used for other sports.
Outdoor glasses with category 3 smoke lenses can also be used for all other sports in direct contact with sunlight as they can be replaced by common sunglasses even for everyday use, and also for a safety point of view they protect against accidental impacts.

The hike in the high mountains and in the glacier represents the complete detachment from the city and the total immersion in nature. Mountaineers, hikers and mountain lovers are constantly looking for technical materials to help them climb the summit and make each excursion unique.
Properly protecting the eyes is as important as the choice of shoe or shell, in fact in the mountains and high mountains UV and sunlight are much more intense because they are less shielded from the smog of the city and for the altitude that plays a fundamental role.
Using outdoor glasses with category 4 smoke lenses is the optimal solution for those planning their excursion at high altitudes, glaciers and days with very strong light conditions.
The category 4 lens is particularly suitable for hikers who particularly suffer from strong mountain light. This special lens (darker than category 3) allows you to keep the eye relaxed for the duration of the excursion even with prohibitive lighting conditions.
The glasses with outdoor category 4 lenses are commonly used for extreme expeditions such as: Everest, K2 and peaks over 4000. By type and darkness of the lens these particular glasses serve to avoid the constant blinding of the eyes with very strong light conditions and given the high altitude the glare of the snow diverges upwards the light rays.
The category 4 outdoor lens can also be used for excursions at lower elevations as additional protection for the eyes. They allow a greater sense of relaxation for the eye than the use of category 3 lenses especially for very prolonged use.
Technical characteristics of outdoor glasses with category 4 lenses:
Protection from light and perfect view of the route: Category 4 outdoor lenses created for mountaineering are nowadays used for hiking at lower elevations because they are very restful for the eye even with strong mountain lighting conditions. The lenses are equipped with anti-fog treatment.

Choosing this special lens is equivalent to a guarantee to be able to fully enjoy your excursion.
Shatterproof lens: All outdoor glasses with category 4 lenses are constructed with anti-break polycarbonate lenses. In fact, from the safety point of view polycarbonate is the most suitable material for the construction of technical lenses for the mountain. In fact, in case of accidental impact the lens does not generate fragments that could damage the eye but distribute the shock over the entire surface of the lens, forming a spider web-like effect that invalidates the lens.
Ultra-light frames: All the frames for outdoor glasses with category 4 lenses are in TR90, a special composition of Nylon and Carbon fiber that make the eyewear 20% lighter than conventional materials, more resistant to high and low temperatures, and more resistant to impact and mechanical traction. The TR90 is a hypoallergenic composition, so it can be used for a long time without skin irritation. The rubber parts are in soft Megol also hypoallergenic which not only improves comfort but has Grip technology that increases the stability of the glasses to the face.
