Glade Challenger Goggles

The Challenger is Glade's best-selling, flagship goggle. It's offered in a range of lens options to cover conditions from bright sunny days to flat, low light. It features anti-fog coatings that work well, and is a comfortable and surprisingly affordable goggle at under $100. Glade is a small, independent company, so they don't offer as many style options in frame sizes or colors as the big behemoth brands, but their offerings are increasing and are well made, good-looking, and very affordable.

Glade Pulsar Magnetic Goggles

The Pulsar Magnetic Goggles from Glade Optics provide an excellent, wide field of vision in a comfortable, surprisingly affordable goggle. The four available Pulsar lenses can be switched out very easily due to magnets, work in a range of light levels, and are polarized to reduce glare. They come with anti-fog coatings that really work. Glade is a small, independent company, so they don't offer as many style options in frame sizes or colors as the big behemoth brands, but their offerings are increasing… Full review

Anon M3 Goggle

The Anon M3 goggle is extremely versatile. With the Magna Tech Quick Lens system you can change lenses in less than ten seconds and a spare lens is included. The anti-fog system is second to none and they are Over the Glasses compatible. Testing:  I purchased the Anon Optics M3/MFI goggles at the beginning of the 2016-17 ski season and have now used them for 45+ days in all conditions to include lift served skiing, back country skiing, and cat skiing.  These are now my go-to goggles.   Product… Full review

Zeal Slate Goggles

A medium fit, over-the-glass goggle with a polarized lens. Helmet compatible with an impact resistant frame. Works well on sun scale of cloudy to bright sun. The Zeal Optics Slate goggle series is available in a variety of lens types and colors that can be paired with many different frame colors. The pair I received for testing were Upland Grass frames fitted with a Polarized Automatic lens. These lenses feature a VLT (visible light transmission) of 18-33% which for me provided excellent visibility… Full review

Native Eyewear Treeline

These goggles provide a huge field of vision while fitting over most eyeglasses. Photochromic lens reacts quickly to changing light conditions. I received the Native Eyewear Treeline goggles last February and have worn them about 20 days for ski testing in both winter and spring conditions. These large lens goggles fit well with my ski helmet and I really like how they cover all of my face from my cheeks up to my helmet. The less skin showing the better for both protection from the sun, snow, or… Full review

Native Eyewear Backbowl

Outstanding fit and performance in a helmet compatible goggle. Rapid reacting "SnowTuned lens" cuts glare and provides excellent peripheral vision. As a downhill and backcountry skier and avid snowshoer, I am always on the lookout for serious eye protection. I was lucky enough to get a pre-release sample from Native Eyewear's new Backbowl goggle line in February 2016. The Backbowl goggle comes in five models and I chose the Ribbit model for testing. Testing was done in and out of bounds at a variety… Full review

POC Lobes

The Poc Lobes are excellent goggles. They fit very well to the face. They don't squeeze on the nose. They don't fog up. The Poc Lobes is an excellent goggle. The spherically shaped large lens ensures an incredible good and wide view. The goggle is well ventilated, so you don't have to worry about fog and loss of view. It fits well on most faces and doesn't squeeze on the nose, so breathing won't be interfered with by the goggle. All in all, Poc Lobes is a beautiful modern goggle. Full review

Giro Contact

The Giro Contact goggles are recommended for those looking for a pair of goggles that easily adapts to changing light conditions with a push of a button. Great for outdoor winter activities of all kinds in all conditions. I tested the Giro Contact goggles during the winter of 2015 and 2016 in Northern New Hampshire. The winter had a frustrating lack of natural snow, but I was able to test these goggles while skiing on man-made snow at the local resorts.  Fit & Comfort:  The Contact goggles… Full review

Ltd. Optics Axiom

I'm in love with these goggles. Quick-change lenses, photochromatic lens options, and superior field of vision for under $200! I bought the Ltd. Optics goggles through their Kickstarter campaign. I went with the Flux package which included a frame, strap, photochromatic (light transitioning) primary lens, Clear Red Revo backup lens (for low light), plus a microfiber bag and hard case. I am a snowboarding instructor at Park City Mountain so I use my goggles a lot. By mid January I already had 45… Full review
