Hi Paul,

Thanks for your review. We are pleased you like our product. Hopefully see you again soon!


Odd prism glasses - great for checking the ceiling

Very good for belaying, i bought a cheaper version from eBay which didn't work as well and weren't as stylish. You can see under and over these which makes them more practical. no need to take them on and off.

Hi Manjunath,

Thanks for giving your valuable feedback on the Simond Belay Glasses. I am sorry that the product didnt not meet your expectations.

We use a mix of Polycarbonate(one of the most strong thermoplastic polymer available) and TPU( for it's elasticity and resistance to abrasion) for our Simond belay glasses. These glasses are developed for climbers of various levels and have been tested extensively by our team of climbers before reaching the shelves, however it does take a bit of time getting used to them.

Constant improvement is in the DNA of Decathlon and we would be very happy to hear from you how we can enhance the comfort and practicality of these glasses for climbers like yourself. Please share your number so I can directly reach you.

Thank you,

Regards, Ravindra Charan Product Trainer & Country Sport Leader- Climbing & Mountaineering

Affordable but chips very easily

Used during one climbing trip and got it chipped in two different places already, it is however by far the most affordable to try.

Really well made and a fraction of the price compared to other brands.

On par with much more expensive glasses.

I've used belay glasses that are 3x this price with a similar look, feel and function. The prisms are bright and clear and you can see around the periferey well. Would totally recommend.

Great product excellent price

These have a great fit and are nice and light. Stay on without moving around. Cannot go wrong for the price. Easily as good as some twice the price

A good deal for a regular sport climber!!

It definitely did the job and saved me from that nasty neck pain from belaying on long sport projects. I don't have to worry about cursing or getting cursed by my climbing partner for long belaying anymore. I used it extensively in Badami sport climbing trip and weekend excursions in Belapur, Mumbai. Should be used only in steep vertical/overhung terrain. Had some headache when used on slabs/off vertical terrain. Lightweight. The case clips on the harness. The zoom definitely helps on long routes. It took me some 5-6 belay sessions to get used to these and now I don't experience any sort of headache. Just one and only problem is the peripheral vision it has. On the border of the prism, predominantly on the bottom part, I can see another image that is quite disturbing sometimes especially in the lower part of the climb. But still when you're focused on the climber, it becomes ignorable after a while. But if this thing is improved, 5/5 for sure.

Prisms fall off - not durable, badly made

Thought I was getting a bargain, but alas going cheap once again proves a mistake. These glasses are light and easy to wear, and come with a very handy case that you can clip to your harness but sadly not just one but BOTH prisms have fallen off at different times. We've tried super-gluing them back on but again that only lasts a while. I can only assume it's because of the very soft flexible plastic frames that are simply not designed well enough around a solid glass prism. Such a shame. Customer service however have been excellent so far and have readily agreed to a free return and full refund for the item.

Hi Glyn,

I am sorry that Simond Belayer Glasses did not meet the standards that they should. I am glad that the returns process has been easy for you. 

I have sent your feedback to the product engineers so that they can check the stock to make sure this is a one off occurrence. 

Many Thanks

Work perfectly, good optical quality and a nice case. Why buy a more expensive pair?

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase
Expensive for an empty box!

Ordered these through click and collect, however, when I got the product home realised I had been sold an empty box. Decathlon have also been very unhelpful in giving me a refund!

Hello Ben,

I am sorry to hear about this incident. 

When you received the Click and Collect there should also have been a invoice/ receipt with them. I would recommend going back into store and explain the issue to the Duty Manager who will be in the best position to assist you.

If you are unable to reach your local store easily please contact our Customer Services Team (Link Below) who will be able to talk you through the returns process.

Once again I apologise for the issue you have encountered .

Yes buy them.

No las compréis, se rompen de seguida

Ya van dos pares este año. Plástico blando y de muy mala calidad. Los cristales se despegan y por ese precio mejor quedarse otros modelos. Si escalas dos veces al mes igual te sirven pero si les das uso intensivo mejor no lo compres. Son lo peor.

Hola Manel,

Sentimos mucho que tu experiencia con estas gafas no haya sido satisfactoria.

Es posible que se trate de una tirada defectuosa.

Podrás tramitar la garantía en cualquier tienda Decathlon sin problema ninguno.

Muchas gracias por tu opinión.

Un saludo.

Marcos, experto en deportes de verticalidad.

Gafas para asegurar

Muy recomendables y a muy buen precio.
