This review is for Linegear’s Black Juliet Aftermarket Lenses. Full disclosure, Linegear wanted me to try out these lenses, and were brave enough to send a pair all the way from Japan.

First up, I was impressed by the packaging, the lenses were boxed and wrapped as pictured below, and from on inspection had no scratches, marks or imperfections.
I spent a good deal of time just looking around these lenses to get the overall feel. Definitely feel light, but I was impressed by the quality.
I popped these into a pair of Juliets and took them for a whirl. I will say they didn’t really have much of a mirror or “iridium” to them, which I usually prefer on lenses. Stepping outside I was really surprised just how dark the lenses were, something I always appreciate. I had no problem looking directly at the Sun with not even the slightest of a squint.
Ended up meeting up with a buddy later that evening who tried them out and fell in love with the lenses. Unfortunately he ended up stealing these for the “evening”, and has conveniently not seen me since J. Also unfortunately I didn’t get the opportunity to take and pics of these lenses in my Juliets – but will be sure to take some when he’s lucky enough to see me again!
In the interim, I suggest checking out some of the other reviews on these and the amazing pics from member @cajun22 !
