Advantages: Very comfortable and designed for the female face
Well the arrival of snow this week was not a welcome event in our house as we are due to go off skiing next week and are now hoping that this pathetic country can gets its act together to m ake sure we make our flight and we can find ourselves in a country that can cope with a small amount of snow and does very well when the snow reaches the levels we are looking for.
I paid £65 for these skiing goggles and this will be the second trip that I have used them and alsoa couple of times at the MK snowdome just to get myself back in the groove. Made and designed specifically for the female face these are an incredibly comfortable goggle that provide an excellent range of vision while skiing or snowboarding.
These are stylishly made but then you would expect little else from Oakley, I have the pearl white and black iridium combination lens with the distinctive Oakley symbol on the strap, the lens is a slightly darker colour than the one in the picture above. The lens provide full uv protection and they are also excellent at reducing the glare off the snow and directly from the sun which makes them great at aiding my vision while skiing. I have never had any problems with the goggles fogging up, they are double vented and the lens have also been treated with an anti fogging aganet, the foam around the frames are very effective at wicking away any moisture and sweat which also helps improve both my comfort and vision.
These goggles are robsutly made and also have a decent amount of flexibility in them, the strap is easy to adjust and really comfortable. What is most improtant for me alongside the comfort factor is the range of vision that these provide which is very impressive. I have good vision down to the ground and also a wide arc on the periphery.
These are nice and light to wear as well but this does not mean there has been any compromise on strength, so far I have had no major falls in them but they have coped easily with a couple of small falls, teh main factor is that they are super comfortable to wear and are hardly noticeable even after a full day of skiing. Well worh the money in my opinion.
Summary: Great ski goggle for women
