The dad rented the gear from a store along the way, weird looking or not, they worked very nicely. My glacier goggles are kinda rigged and fog up every 45 seconds making me have to constantly use my fingers to wipe out the fog. Gimpilator recently gave me a pair of ski goggles which work much better.
