Having the best gear means nothing if the fit isn’t right. For years, snow goggles have come in different sizes but still fell short to fit the variety of face shapes out there. Oakley identified this problem and designed asian fit snow goggles as a solution.
*2019/20 update per Oakley Goggle Design Team on the discontinuation of ‘Asian Fit’ goggles: “We modified all Goggle models to a new Global fit which is very close to the Asian fit with a bit of a different transition in the foam shape in nasal area. Therefore, the Global fit is a fit that is now ideal to fit all facial/nose bridge shapes and sizes for all standard and Asian fit face features. No need to differentiate anymore!”
Common issues with snow goggle fit occur around the nosebridge. If there is not a proper seal around the entire edge of the goggle, gaps exist and cold air can get in. When cold air sneaks in it mixes with warm air inside the goggle and creates fog, not to mention a cold face!

Asian fit snow goggles are recommended for individuals with flatter noses. Or really anyone who would like some extra padding around the nose.
