Say goodbye to clunky-feeling frames and easily-clouded lenses. While it’s not news that snow-gear technology is getting sharper than ever, this season offers a few pairs of ski and snowboard goggles that have (almost) blown us off the chair lift.
Yes, we’re talking serious anti-fog technology (one pair actually has built-in fans to eliminate condensation!) and face-fitting, anti-pinch padded frames here. Plus, professional skiers and snowboarders put their tried-and-tested stamp of approval on the best pairs, wearing them in the fastest (and toughest-to-see) conditions to work out any product kinks. And with heightened color contrasting lenses? Ditching your old pair for a new one will make everything you see look just as good as it did when you upgraded your TV from standard to HD.
So here are the 10 best ski and snowboard goggles of the 2012-2013 season. They’ll keep your vision so sharp, you’ll never have to worry if it’s snow or hard ice up ahead.
