Triple-layer, moisture-wicking foam is something already found in a majority of goggles, but it’s important to check for. This foam serves the dual purpose of keeping your face dry and warm, creating a seal against cold air. This also helps with fogging.
Speaking of fogging, a low-profile goggle with helmet-compatible venting also helps keep your vision clear. We always recommend wearing a helmet when skiing or snowboarding, and if you buy the same brand helmet as your goggles, there’s a better chance of them being compatible.
And when you add a helmet, a silicone-ribbed, adjustable strap helps the goggles stay in place. Again, we always recommend wearing a helmet for snow sports, though whether you wear the goggles over or under the helmet is your choice.
