Originally released in 1972, Julbo’s Cham Sunglasses are the direct result of the exploits of a nearly unknown mountain climber. His name was Yannick Seigneur, and he was the first person to ascend Makalu, the fifth-tallest mountain in the world by its West Pillar Route, among other feats. He also helped Julbo, a decades-old leader in mountain eye protection, test and refine eyewear. The Cham Sunglasses are a direct result of that collaboration.

In recent years, Julbo revived the Cham from its archives. Leather eye shields and nose pieces aren’t used commonly on expeditions today, but they do lend themselves to nostalgic mountain style. Right now, they’re 30 percent off at The Drop.

A note on The Drop:
The Drop is not like other online retailers. It’s a members-only site that requires signing up (all it takes is an email address). If you’re not a member, you can sign up here. When you place an order from The Drop at a discounted price, you’re not buying from them directly. The site works by taking orders from consumers, then bulk ordering product at a discount directly from brands and other wholesalers. For more information on how The Drop works, click here.
