Comfortable and great look...but...
on March 7, 2013
Look: Excellent. They have a mirror finish and stand out from the pack. Look as they are pictured, sleek, wide and offer pretty decent peripheral vision.
Lenses:Not polarized obviously, but provide a nice view while boarding. Yo uare able to make out the difference in elevation in the snow and it blocks the sun well enough. Nothing special though.
Fit: They are very comfortable with good padding.
Fog protection: They have pretty good anti-fog technology. Did not really fog up unless I blew into them or blew on the outside of them. Regular use did not fog them up. They were clean the entire time through.
However...I wear these goggles with a helmet and they just don't seem to fit right over the goggles. They drop down or bend in a little by the nose so there is a crack left between the top of the goggles and my helmet. This is really a problem for me because it lets in cold air right at my forehead and it gets cold on windy, sub-zero days. I guess I could alleviate this by wearing a hat or beanie underneath the helmet, but I don't like to. I have a pair of Anon goggles and they fit seamlessly (they were also about $45).
By the way, I bought these for $45 about 4-6 weeks ago. I don't know why they are all of a sudden $100. Not worth $100. At all. Do not buy them for that much.
Decent goggles..especially at the price. Maybe you will get yours to fit right over your helmet?
