Buying Guide for Goggles

 

Ski Goggles

Ski goggles are one of the most important accessories for achieving the perfect style but they also need to perform. A foggy pair of goggles can instantly ruin a day so choosing the right pair is extremely important.

Generally with goggles, you get what you pay for. Cheaper goggles will most likely have single lenses that fog up easier and won’t block the sun. More expensive goggles normally have double lenses that don’t fog as easily and are tinted to provide good light no matter the weather.

Regardless of what you spend you can get a good pair of ski goggles that fit properly. Fit is the most underrated aspect of goggle performance—if your goggles don’t fit right they’ll fog quickly despite the weather or the price.

A good pair of goggles will fit comfortably with no gaps around the entire face and will fit well with your helmet if you are wearing one. The easiest way to ensure this is to purchase the same brand, but if you don’t want to do this then make sure you try them on together. Any gaps between goggle frame and helmet—on your forehead or your temples—will create too much airflow and you’ll risk leakage into the inside of the lens.
