The Upshot's have a field of vision that aims higher on the wall than our original Belay Glasses. They have sport-style temples with low profile nose pads that fit better when used with glasses or sunglasses, and increased peripheral vision. These glasses are specifically designed to help reduce neck strain and fatigue while belaying at the gym or crag. A durable case keeps them safe while transporting in your pack or climbing with them.
Includes: lanyard, hard case, and lens cloth.
Weight: glasses/case 88g, glasses only 45g
At Metolius our passion is rock climbing and our focus is designing and building the safest and best climbing gear for Big Wall, Trad, Sport, Bouldering, Mountaineering, Indoor Climbing Gyms and Training.
Metolius equipment is born out of respect for the sport we love, rock climbing. We are a unique collection of North American climbers who came together in the 1980s to push our personal limits at Smith Rock. We shared a common passion for hard gymnastic free climbing, bouldering and for exploration in the mountains and on big walls. Twenty five years later we are still totally committed to the climbing lifestyle, making the absolute best equipment, helping to educate others and preserving the environment in which we live and play.
metolius upshot belay glassesBy: Steve on 11 December 2018I had great sales and delivery from WildEarth. I am a huge Metolius fan. i have climbed with their gear for years. I have used Y & Y belay glasses in the past and thought they were "spectacular". obviously the opportunity to stay with a known brand came up. However, these Metolius glasses don't match the view of the Y & Y variety. I have suffered double vision with these glasses, and possibly an issue with depth perception but it was hard to tell with both ropes on single rope sports climbs. i have tried with these for only two days but i have no doubt they wont improve and i wont adapt to them. shame really as the fit is nice and stable (medium sized head) and they seem robust yet light.
