As we're comparing these two Zeal goggles, we'll begin with the similarities between the Portal vs Portal XL. Here are the key performance features that we find in both goggles.

Frame Technology

  • Rail Lock system provides a simple method of interchanging lenses with extra security to keep them in place.
  • Triple-layer face foam creates a plush seal around your face to wick away moisture and keep nature's elements out.
  • Adjustable silicone-lined strap allows you to get a perfect fit while guaranteeing a no-slip grip.
  • Impact-resistant frame will keep you protected during a collision or fall.

Lens Technology

  • Spherical rimless lens delivers clean aesthetics and superior optics.
  • Everclear anti-fog keeps your vision clear, even when you break a sweat.
  • Permashield Hardcoat resists scratching and doesn't rub off over time.
  • A bonus lens is included so you're equipped from the get-go to take on low-light and bright-light conditions.

Now, the answer you've been waiting for!

The only difference between the Portal and Portal XL is the sizing. That's it.

And we couldn't love Zeal more for it. By offering multiple sizes of this high-performance goggle, you're guaranteed to get a perfect fit. The Portal is considered a medium fit, and works on most adults. The Portal XL is an extra-large fit, and works if you struggle to find goggles to fit your noggin.

One other noteworthy difference is that the Portal is also available in Asian Fit at Zeal Optics. This is considered a low-bridge fit, and uses additional, contoured foam on the goggle’s nose bridge to create a flush fit for flatter bridges.
