What are SMITH OTG Goggles?

OTG stands for over-the-glasses. SMITH OTG goggles contain an engineered cut-out to fit the temples of your eyeglasses easier inside. Some SMITH OTG goggles specifically have "OTG" in the name, while others do not. You will see this omission in the upcoming list.

The Best SMITH OTG Goggles

In addition to SMITH’s lifetime warranty on all their products, the top three SMITH OTG goggles all have a few things in common. The first similarity is that each of these goggles are designed for integration with SMITH helmets. They include DriWix face foam for ultimate venting and a fog-free performance. Each of these three OTG goggles also comes with a silicone-backed strap to hold them in place. This is great because having trouble with your goggles sliding down your helmet when speeding down a mountain is not only a hassle, but dangerous.

Moving onto the lenses, the top three SMITH OTG goggles also come with a spherical Carbonic-x lens. This lens provides distortion-free optics and impact resistance, so you can practice taking your snow skills to the next level. And of course, they are all available with SMITH ChromaPop lenses which enhance color and contrast, so you can anticipate every turn like a pro.
