Snow Goggle Range
Snow Goggles are one of the most important pieces of equipment you can purchase; they are just as important as your jacket and pants. Any skier or snowboarder can tell you that not being able to see ruins a day as fast as poor fitting boots or a bad chili dog.
Ocean Eyewear goggles offer protection from wind and cold, but here are some key features to consider:
UV Protection – All our goggles, have UV 400 protection. UV intensity increases with altitude, and protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays will prevent eye fatigue as well as damage to your retinas.
Double Lenses – All our goggles have double lenses – These create a thermal barrier that reduces fogging significantly compared to its single lens counterpart – a single lens goggle just won’t cut it for skiing or snowboarding.
Anti-Fog Coating – All our goggles have anti fog coating – A hydrophilic chemical treatment to the inside of the lenses can greatly reduce a goggle’s tendency to fog.
Fit Problems and Solutions
If your goggles don’t feel right, consider why they are uncomfortable:
Pressure on the outer eye socket – If you feel this, the goggle is too narrow and you need to find a model with a wider frame.
Pinching you on the bridge of the nose – First try to tighten the strap so that it secures the goggle a little higher up on your face. If that doesn’t work then try a goggle with a smaller fit or one with a different bridge contour.
Gap on the bridge of the nose – The first thing you should do is try to loosen the strap a little and see if you can secure it a little lower down on your face. If this doesn’t work, you should fit yourself in a goggle with a larger bridge.
Pinching the temple – You should try to loosen the strap a little and see if that relieves the tension. Otherwise, you’ll need to try and find a wider pair of goggles.
Once you have made an investment and purchased a pair of goggles, you’ll want to protect them in order to ensure that they last as many seasons as possible. Here are some basic tips:
• Never let your lens touch the table or hard surface when you set them down. Place them on the foam side with the lens facing up.
• Use only a soft cloth (not your base layer shirt) or anti-fog cloth to blot (not wipe) the goggle lens dry. Wiping is more abrasive and can remove the anti-fogging coating on the inside of the lens.
• When off the slopes allow goggles to air dry thoroughly before stowing in their bag.
• Store your goggles in a soft sack when they are not in use. Ocean eyewear provide one with all goggles.
• Do not dry goggles in direct sun or high heat, such as on the dashboard or hanging from the rearview mirror.
Tips to Avoid Fogging
Having problems with your goggle always fogging up? Here are some tricks to keep your goggles working as efficiently as possible:
Keep moving! The airflow you get from riding keeps fog from forming.
• Remove excess snow from the goggle by shaking. Don’t wipe the lens with your glove, as your glove is abrasive and can leave your lens scratched.
• Clear snow off of vents so they are clear.
• Avoid putting your goggles on your forehead. They will fog up.
• If your goggles do get fogged up, place them in a warm, dry pocket of your jacket. You can also try shaking them up and down to create air flow. If need be, go into the lodge to dry them out. This is another great reason to carry two pairs of goggles.
