Goggles

Postby j4ever » Mon Apr 16, 2012 3:02 am

Can i get some suggestions on Goggles please? I used Zeal Dominator SPX Polarized Goggles,they seem to fit ok, maybe ever so slightly small, i have difficult time breathing thru my nose with these.

For climbing? Skiing?

For climbing, the best I've found are Uvex Pocket Goggles.

Light, compact, effective.

For skiing, there are a zillion goggles to choose from. Just try them on and see what's comfortable.

For climbing or skiing, I use the Smith I/O. Interchangeable lenses are great and they're the most fog-resistant goggles I've ever owned. The Sensor-Mirror lenses for flat light are very good.

They're just small enough to work with my climbing helmet. Bummer? Pricey.

Are most goggles lenses replaceable? I've got a Smith PMT Airflow goggle with scratches... I've seen replacement lenses advertised, but it looks like you'd need to do some demolition to get the old one out
where am i going... and why am i in this handbasket?

Depends. The lower end ones often are not replaceable, but go check over at http://www.smithoptics.com/products/#/Lens+and+Accessories/ or contact them directly to see what they say. I've heard Smith is really good about inquiries but have never had to contact them yet.

I've got a pair of Von Zippers that I use for just general snowsports, figuring if I need goggles on a climb it's windy as hell. Otherwise I use some Julbo Colorado's in the snow.

I wear smith goggles. They are great to wear all day boarding. Their sunglasses are awesome too and they have unbelievably awesome customer support.
