How to Buy Ski Goggles
Ski goggles are not just accessories; they are essential for eye safety. The primary function of ski goggles is to protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, wind, snow, bright sun, tree debris, and branches. Protecting your eyes and maintaining clear vision is essential to everyone, whether skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snow tubbing, or performing other snow sports.
So how do you choose ski goggles ? First, start with understanding how the goggles fit. Before buying, make sure your goggles & helmets feel comfortable together. Goggles have a variety of straps. There is an anti-slip strap, snapback closure, silicon-backed strap, or dual slide strap adjustment system. Some straps are easier to adjust than others. Next is deciding the type of lens. There are two lens shapes flat or cylindrical and spherical lenses. Cylindrical-shaped goggles curve from left to right and are more economical but limited in peripheral vision. Spherical-shaped goggles are curved from left to right and top to bottom for less visual distortion. Spherical snow goggles give better peripheral vision, less distortion, and less glare, but their cost is higher.
Condensation or fogging of the lens may occur in goggles when your warm body air meets the cold outside air. There are four types of ventilation systems to look for when selecting snow goggles double-layered lenses, anti-fog coatings, vents, and fans. Check out our guide on how to prevent ski goggles from fogging. Different tints can be used depending on the ski conditions. Using the correct lens can optimize your vision for the best experience. Choose from UV protection, Polarized lenses, Photochromic lenses, Over-the-glasses lenses (OTG), and Interchangeable lenses.
