Knowing what to look for when buying snow goggles is crucial in narrowing down your search. Choosing a lens, finding the right fit, and picking out a colorway are all part of the decision-making process. Check out our top picks for 2020.


Oakley Flight Deck

We kick the list off with a tried and true Oakley favorite. The Flight Deck has all the top features to make it everything you need for the snow. The rimless spherical lens imitates the curvature of your eye which gives you better optical clarity so you can look out for other riders and obstacles on the mountain. You will make the most of your view with PRIZM lens technology which enhances color and contrast.

The Flight Deck is a large fit but it is also offered in a medium fit, Flight Deck XM. We have a separate review comparing the two goggles if you want to learn more about the differences between the Flight Deck and Flight Deck XM. Both models are available in Asian fit.
