Helpful, friendly advice from our skiing and snowboarding brand.

Your choice of ski goggles should be based on three criteria: weather, anti-fogging, and size.

1. Weather

All ski masks offer 100% UV protection as standard, so that’s one less thing to think about. Then you need to consider the weather conditions you’ll be skiing in, and thus the visibility levels.

Fog And Snow: Poor Visibility

Combat this with a clear yellow screen to allow a better view.

Sun Or Cloud: Good Visibility

You’ll need a dark screen for optimal visibility.

Changing Weather: Changing Visibility

Look out for removable screens, photochromatic screens, and electro-photochromatic screens that will allow you to change the screen tint depending on the weather.

2. Anti-Fogging

All ski masks come with an anti-fogging treatment, but there are different levels of treatment.

Simple Screen

A simple screen has anti-fogging on the inside. This is the bare minimum – the essential for every skier, if you will.

Double Screen

High-performance skiers will usually opt for a double screen. It has the standard anti-fogging treatment as well as an insulating air pocket that creates a thermal filter.

Ventilated Double Screen

For maximum ventilation and anti-fog treatment, choose a ventilated double screen.

3. Size

It’s important that your goggles are the right size – too big and they’ll slide around too much; too small and they’ll be uncomfortable. Luckily, there are only two sizes to choose between: S for small and L for large and it should be obvious which one you are.

The only exception to this is if you normally wear glasses, in which case you should look for OTG (Over the Glasses) models , designed to be worn with glasses.
