Summary

I'm in love with these goggles. Quick-change lenses, photochromatic lens options, and superior field of vision for under $200!

Pros

  • Great price
  • Photochromatic lens option
  • Lenses can be changed quickly
  • Interchangeable straps
  • Great field of vision
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Mirrored lenses scratch fairly easily

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 days in them and every time I used them my vision was unmarred and half they time I forgot they were even there (which is a good thing). 

One of the reasons that I decided to go for these goggles is that for less than $200 I was able to pick up goggles with FLUX (light transitioning) lens. Since I'm on the mountain all day, the conditions can change quickly and I don't have time to go fumbling through my pockets and trying to swap out a lens in a snow storm.

The FLUX lens is great because it gets nice and dark on a bluebird day and lightens up if the clouds roll in. Transition time is great too, no moments of snow blindness yet. 

About a month ago, since I was loving both of the current lenses for my Axiom goggles, I decided to check out a few more of their lenses. As a Kickstarter backer they provided me with a 30% discount code for any purchases made in the next year on their site (ltdoptics.com).

I picked up the Silver Revo lens and a Blue Revo lens for under $55 including shipping with my discount which was a steal. I've been riding them and loving them on sunny days for the last month, but have noticed a few scratches starting to show up.

I emailed the guys at Ltd. Optics to see if their was anything I could about it. They gave me the contact info for a company that makes clear lens covers in case I wanted to go that route. They also did something that blew me away. They offered to replace them at the end of the season for just $10 each so I can have completely new lenses for next season!

So, long story short, I love my Axiom goggles and will continue to support Ltd. Optics because of their great products and outstanding customer service.
