I have not tried the Oakleys, but really like the Infinity (and actually just ordered a pair together with an M3 helmet). It seems to me that Marker did it right with the frame shape, strap attachment, etc. If you can find a pair, I'd say get 'em!

I own a pair of Oakley A-Frames with the blue iridium lens. They are great goggles that never fog and provide clear vision in the sun. I havent tried the new Markers although they look interesting. Based on the other responses I would say price and availability would be the only other deciding factors. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Rossi00----have you ever tried the goggles for night skiing. Mostly i will use them during the day--but once in a while i do some nights!

thanks [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

I would also vote for the Marker Infinity goggle with the M3 helmet. There are cheaper helmets and goggles out there, but I really love the way these fit together and the quality of the goggles. Also you can get a pretty good deal here:


This site (not the .com site unless you are CO resident) gives you free shipping and charges $116.99 for the Helmet and $109.99 or $119.99 for Infinity goggles depending on model. You can also use the coupon code "phone" to get an additional 5% off your total order (if that coupon code does not work, call the 800 number and listen to the beginning of the message for the current coupon code).

They also offer a no hassle return policy on the helmet in case of a sizing mistake.

thanks everyone for the input. has anyone used Carrera; in specific the Kimeric Icon or the OTG. I have looked at these because of the Polarized lens. i use native polarized lenses for biking and water--love them!

any comments are welcome and thanks again [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

For night skiing I would recommend the Oakley A-Frame with Hi-Intensity Blue Lens (which is actually a yellow lens). The dark Blue Iridium lens would be difficult to use in the dark. The yellow lens could be used during the day, but if its really sunny it could yield blinding reflections. Fortunately I ski on the East coast and we dont have to worry about the sun here. I hope this helps.
