About Bollé

Bollé delivers the highest quality sunglasses and goggles for performance and protection. At Bollé we are constantly refining our trademark combination of fit, fashion and comfort, resulting in some of the freshest and most technologically advanced eyewear in the industry. The Bollé story began in the small town of Oyonnax, France in 1888. There Seraphim Bollé started his company by first manufacturing combs and hair ornaments from the boxwood and horn indigenous to the region. After WWII, Bollé led the way in molding nylon to the highest standards in the world. Safety glasses and goggles were added to the Bollé line in 1950 and in 1956 Georges Bollé created the famous nylon ‘cat-eye’ sunglass. And in 1960, ski goggles were first marketed by Bollé. Leading the industry in product innovations, the Bollé family took the business from a small cottage industry to one of the world’s most prominent manufacturers of protective eyewear. Now, over 100 years later, Bollé products are distributed and worn all over the world. Bollé has developed particular strength in the sports specialty markets of snow sports, golf, tennis and marine, as well as eyewear that meets everyday needs.

These are OTGs. They are designed to fit over glasses. If you are not a glasses wearer I am not sure why you would pay for this model. They are big. I have not had the problem with them sliding down on my nose that others have reported. (Did they tighten the strap?). Some Rx glasses that are very wide (hinge screw to hinge screw) may not fit well under these glasses.

I have skied for 4 decades and always with my glasses. There are 3 main problems that the glasses wearer faces with goggles: 1) fitting the glasses under the goggles, 2) fogging, 3) the tendency for the goggles to cause the glasses to wiggle or vibrate with every bump impact.

1) Fit: these seem to be adequate although skiing is so important to me that I consider the width of the glasses I will use when I purchase the glasses. Some Rx glasses are too wide to fit well under any goggles.

2) Fogging: The goggles seem to do fine. That does not mean your glasses will not fog. It is important that you use some kind of anti-fog coat on your glasses. The cloths are okay, but the sprays and greases (Cat Crap for example) seem to work even better although you pay a price in overall clarity (they tend to leave a film).

3) Vibration: These are okay. The cut outs on the sides help and as long as the front corners of your glasses are not rubbing on the goggle lenses the problem is not any worse than simply wearing your glasses.

Miscellaneous comments for the glasses wearer: Fogging is the biggest problem IMO. I like powder. I ski when it is snowing. Here's a few tips:

- Put your goggles on before you walk out of the lodge. Do not let your glasses lenses get any colder than they have to have to; it will only make the fogging problem worse.

- Don't let your head overheat.

I bought this elsewhere but I thought I should let prospective buyer know. I have the black frame and vermillion lens. The goggle covers almost half of my face. This is a good thing since it blocks quite a bit of wind. It never fogged up yet. The vents work well. The lens color takes some getting used to at first. But once you wear it for a few minute, your eyes will adjust to it and you won't notice it. The over-sized lens provides great all around visibility. It contrasts well in either sunny or cloudy day so you can see the trail better and ride harder and faster. An added bonus is that you can wear it over the glass (I don't but I tested it at home). Given the low cost of this lens. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

I bought this pair of goggles mainly because of the good reviews on Amazon. The following is based on my personal experience with the polarizing brown version this product on a 3-day ski trip: I found the overall quality of these goggles acceptable. They easily fit over my medium size glasses. I found it easier for my ears to raise the handles of my glasses to sit above my ears in order to reduce the pressure caused by the goggles' stretch bands. However, there are two somehow annoying issues with these goggles: the first one is that these goggles slide down and put pressure on your nose, making it harder to breath. I admit that this is a person-specific issue and it depends on the shape of the face and the nose so others may not have the same problem, nevertheless I still believe it's a design issue. I did not have such a problem with another brand of goggles (Smith Knowledge). Another problem I found was that the polarizing lens was creating optical illusions -- such as wavy ridges when actually looking at a flat snow surface at a close range. My eyes got used to it very soon but still it was not the best experience. This problem may be specific to the polarizing brown version, or even -- out of bad luck -- my copy of the goggles but I decided to share my experience with others anyhow knowing this could be the case.

Based on this experience I will definitely consider trying the goggles on before buying them from now on. If you have to buy online, considering the overall quality and value, I think the cheaper version of these goggles are in the acceptable range, especially if you have a small (not wide) nose.

Great goggles for the price. They stayed clear all day everyday without fogging. The Over The Glasses feature would come in handy if I had glasses and the amber colored lenses were great for various weather conditions. One problem that I did have is that the goggles tend to slide down my face a little and rest on my nose, somewhat restricting my breathing through my nose. It wasn't unbearable though, just an annoyance that I can put up with. Overall I'd recommend them.

I bought these as a gift for my brother, and he loves them. They have great lenses, and they're also perfect for anyone who wears glasses: each side has a cutout in the foam that gives the wearer plenty of room for his or her glasses underneath.

I just used my new goggles. They were comfortable and the visual clarity was excellent. Never had a fog problem. They were as good as advertised. This was my first pair of goggles in 15 years. I had used prescription sunglasses for the last 12 years, but the glasses didn't fit comfortably under my helmet. I would highly recommend these
goggles to anyone.
