There are a few important details to attend to when buying ski goggles. One of the main things to make sure of is whether or not the goggles you choose are actually comfortable to wear.
In order to ascertain this you will likely need to try on a fair few pair of goggles. Don't choose something that's uncomfortable. When you're out on the slopes, ill fitting goggles will make your skiing experience very unpleasant. Take the time to choose wisely. Get something that fits well and doesn't cause you any discomfort.
Choose the color of your lenses according to where you will be skiing:
- If you're skiing in low to moderate light or in fog, choose gold or amber lenses.
- Low-light, grey days? Go for rose colored lenses.
- Skiing in bright sunlight? Choose darker lenses, green is a good choice.
- Skiing at night? Only clear lenses please. These give the best view.
- Ultraviolet light protection is important! Make sure your goggles protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Over-exposure to either one can cause cataract formation on your eyes.
- Make sure you can see a full 180 degrees around you. Less than that can result in accidents and injury!
