OGE Picks: Ski and Snowboard Goggles

See and be seen in this seasons OGE Picks skiing and snowboarding goggles from Anon, Oakley, Smith, Spy and Zeal.

Smith Prodigy Spherical Series Goggle Smith Prodigy Goggles – The Smith Prodigy Goggles are part of the Spherical Series family of goggles. This means that the lenses are spherically shaped for distortion free vision. The shape also aids in fog prevention, which combined with the patented Regulator airflow system will keep you seeing clearly. The Prodigy comes in a wide array of colors with 12 different optional lens tints.

Anon Figment Goggle Anon Figment Goggles – These helmet compatible goggles come with the style, fit and functionality you’d expect from Anon. The custom Auto-Adjust strap attachment pivots automatically to fit your skull or helmet. Anon’s Channeled Top Venting system won’t let water penetrate while allowing ample air circulation to prevent fogging.

Oakley Wisdom Goggle Oakley Wisdom Goggles – The Wisdom goggles have been a classic in the Oakly fleet for a long time. Quite simply put, they work well. The air intake ports channel airflow through the goggles to reduce fog while still keeping air currents away from eyes. The optics are extroadinary and the choices for colors and lenses extensive.

Spy Orbit Goggle Spy Orbit Goggles – The Orbit features Spy’s patented 6-base ARC spherical lens system made from an anatomical dual composite frame structure. In plain speak, great optics from a tough pair of goggles. While they may be tough, the Orbit does display a soft side with its thermoformed foam lined with Dri-Force fleece.

Zeal Link PPX Goggle Zeal Link PPX Goggles – The PPX Photo-Polar lens is both photochromatic and polarized, which means it changes from dark to light (or vise versa) depending on changing light conditions and it eliminates annoying glare. With such a high tech lens, you’d hope that you could keep these goggles around for a long time. Zeal makes sure that these goggles will last by making every part replaceable and by also including a bonus hard carrying case.
