Ski Goggles with nose protection.

Who makes ski goggles with nose protection - both insulation and sun protection?

Anyone recommend one?

LOL awesome.  But do they allow for lens changes for storm days vs bluebird?  ;)

OP: Seriously, I've never heard of ski goggles with nose protection. Not sure how they'd even work; do you mean like an insulated shade? I'd suggest sunblock or if it's cold, a face mask...

there's some nose protector that you can attach to any goggle, so then seems to be 1-piece.  You could've seen that.

There was some thread on it, i think you can do a few searches here or on google, and pretty much find all the possible options.

 

It wouldn't make sense to create such a specific product that you can't sell to so much of your market.  Look how hard it is for people to find a goggle they like.  Next they'll be limited if they want a nose-protector version.

 

Makes more sense to sell the 2 items separately and are interchangeable.  then people can mix and match.

 

I also see some people using full-face masks like for paintball, but the googles still are separate.

There are neoprene pieces, roughly five inches by four inches, that attach to the lower edge of goggles, covering your nose and some of your cheeks. I have several friends who use them. I don't know who makes them, I think some of them were hand made.

Last season I found the Face Saver at a ski shop at Alta.  Made by a guy in Park City.  Can get in shops around SLC or directly from him.  I like it better than some other options because it doesn't cover the mouth, only the nose and cheeks, with velcro closure at the back of the neck.

Snowmobile goggles have nose protectors on them, I know a few guys that use them fatbiking.

I used to just pull the neck gaitor right up to the bottom of the goggles.  There are bachlivas that cover the nose under the goggles nowadays with mouth vents like the one MarzNC mentioned.  My kids have some.  The downside to covering the nose (or mouth) is that warm air can sneak up inside the goggles and fog them up. Have to have it adjusted just right to be warm, but not too warm.

One of these should do the trick.

I've never used these and don't know if they work with ski goggles.

 In all Seriousness, a friend of mine has a Ruroc full face helmet. He enjoys it. Can be found here - http://us.ruroc.com/

First gen Oakley goggles (O frames I think) had holea in the lower frame which could accomodate two kind of protectors....full face or nose only. I had bought Oakley goggles to use wgile dirt biking to protect my face from gravel projected from my buddies' motorbikes. As it turned out these protections did fity skiing Oakley goggles as well. Both goggles disintegrated ages ago. But maybe the protections are still around. Will post pic if found.

Carrera Cup goggles had the same thing. 

 

Now it's mostly a paintball thing.

Pictures foundm goggles :

 

Nose &full face protections :

 

The orange goggles, as you can see, had a transparent lens, the black ones, same frame but with a coloured lens for skiing.

Oragne ones are completely broken, the black ones, as of today IIRC (have to dig the goggle out of the cupboard to be sure) have only a desintegrated foam liner, (as the full face protection once had too)

I've tried the aftermarket nose/cheek protection with velcro. The one I bought would not stick to the goggles so I've been gluing a little fleece to my goggles for the past several years to cover my nose. A number of my frequent skiing friends do the same. We do it for two reasons, sun protection and frost bite protection. It fits over a face mask/balaclava and provides everyday protection without interfering with anything else. Absolutely no downside to adding it.

I agree that Okley had a model with a built in plastic nose covering that was lined with some type of fleece for both sun and cold protection.

Thanks

Reminds me of the old Smith Goggles and Face Mask.  couldn't find a photo of them but did find Scott's version..
