What to Look for in Snow Goggles

When shopping for ski & snow goggles, there are a few main features to keep in mind. Let’s review these features in two main categories: frame technology and lens technology.

Frame Technology

While the goggle design may vary, there are few key components that make the ride more enjoyable. Here is a list of frame features that you’ll find in all of the goggles in our lineup:

  • Face foam creates a comfortable seal around your face to keep cold air out while also wicking away sweat.
  • Adjustable silicone-lined strap provides a no-slip grip around your helmet and customizes the fit.
  • Wide field of view is determined by the lens shape. All of the goggles in our lineup have a generous field of vision, so you get the best view of the mountain.

Lens Technology

The key ingredient to a smooth ride is clear vision. Knowing where to carve your lines, spotting your take-offs and lands, and simply enjoying the view. Here are the main features to consider when comparing lens technologies:

  • Contrast-enhancing lens technology that makes details pop so you can find your lines down the mountain with ease.
  • Impact-resistant materials that can withstand a tumble (or two).
  • Anti-fog coating to prevent fogging & keep your vision clear.
