Buying the right skiing and snowboarding goggles is critical. All ski and snowboard goggles will offer some basic protection from wind and cold, but beyond the basics there are some key features to consider: lens type, lens color/tint, frame size, fit and helmet compatibility.
What is Asian Fit?
Named, Asian (or alternate) fit refers to a goggle shape which is more aligned for those with a shallow bridge across the nose and/or higher cheekbones. In some cases the goggle shape may be different or the placement of foam on the goggle providing less area for air, wind and snow to seep in and appeal to a wider range of face shapes.
Finding the right goggle
This type of goggle can definitely fit a range of people so make sure you try them on for size. We also recommend you try a goggle on with your helmet if you have one to ensure you get the best fit.
Think about whether you want a google that can work in most environments (excluding complete whiteout days) or if you prefer something closer to each end of the scale which means you are going to want a goggle that can swap out lenses. Some goggles include a spare lens and some sell a replacement lens as a separate item so you can mix and match for your personal needs.
