OTG Goggles that are Asian Fit with replaceable lenses?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I bought a cheap pair of $60 Smith OTG goggles and I was under the mistaken impression that the lens could be replaced.

 

Well, it turns out that it can't. Now my lenses are all scratched up, plus I don't like the default orange lens color. When the days get overcast or snowy I can't see any contours. I'm basically skiing though a completely homogeneous orange mass.

 

And it fogs rather easily, especially if I take a nice biff and there's even a tiny bit of snow that gets into the goggles. There have been a few miserable days when I couldn't see ANYTHING due to the fogging after a wipeout.

 

I did a search on REI and Backcountry and I can't seem to find any Asian Fit OTG goggles with replaceable lenses?

Asian fit OTG goggles. I don't know if they're distributed much here, but Swans (japan) makes a lot of good googles and I'm sure they'd have an OTG version.

Just wanted to follow up - the Smith Prophecy OTG turbofan ones fit me pretty well and the lenses are replaceable. They are a bit more curved than I like but you can always add more padding with some glue or something. The fan works well.
