Goggles Explained

Snowboard goggles are an often underestimated, yet essential piece of snowboarding gear.  Snowboard goggles protect your eyes from the sun and ultraviolet rays that exaggerated by a combination of high altitude and the reflection off of the snow.  They also prevent snow and ice particles and other foreign objects from getting into your eyes at high speeds.

Fogging is reduced through venting that allow for fresh air circulation and the use of anti-fogging coatings, as well as through today's multiple-lens technologies.

Lens Tints

Lenses come in many different tints designed for specific light conditions.

Dark Tints

Darker tints reduce glare without distorting colors, making them suitable for bright, sunny.  However, darker tints aren't very good for low light or overcast conditions.

Green/Silver

Green and Silver lenses enhance contrast, making them suitable for brighter conditions.

Yellow/Amber/Gold

These lens tints filter out blue light and bring out shadows, making them best for most conditions.  These tints are also best for low to moderate light.

Purple/Rose

These tints are best used in low light conditions, as they bring out shadows and contours.

Clear

Clear lenses are best for night riding and for riding in cloudy conditions.

Fit

Make sure that the goggles that you are considering fit well and have straps that allow you to easily adjust the fit.  Make sure that these straps do not irritate your skin or stick to your hair.

Make sure that your goggles work well with your helmet and that both systems are compatible.

Other

Goggles come in many different shapes and sizes.  Whatever style you decide to go with, make sure that your goggles offer at least 180 degrees of peripheral vision.

The inside part of snowboard goggles are usually padded with some sort of face foam.  This is important, as you don't want your goggles to cut your face in the event of a serious digger.  Goggle padding also helps in terms of controlling fogging.

If you wear eyeglasses, you will want to make sure that the goggles fit well over your glasses.  You can also consult your optician regarding getting your goggle frames fitted with prescription lenses.
