Goggles for night skiing

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have A-frames with Fire lenses for good days but I need something for overcast days or night skiing. I was looking at these: http://www.dogfunk.com/dogfunk/OAK01...sity-Lens.html

The high intenssity blue looks similar to the H.I. yellow but I'm not sure if these will be that great at night. Has anybody used the H.I. Blue lenses and are they as good or almost as good as the H.I. yellow.

Damn I can't wait till ski season!!

I actually purchased some nearly clear Bolle goggles last season for just such a condition. But yestarday I saw that Uvex has some electronic dimming goggles called the F1 Magic, that are good for all conditions. The only thing is they cost about $200!

I wish I had $200 for goggles but I'm already gonna be running over a grand for new gear this year.

the lights offer more terrain contrast than any lens. Go clear. Buy a clear A-frame replacement lense online from oakley. or a second pair as they aren't all that easy to swap. The high intensity yellow oakley lenses all fog. I have no idea why but I know four guys, all complain about that one lense, all the other lenses rock.

...and they work great too!

I know everyone has their own experiences/opinions, but coming from an area where we ski a ton a night this is the only lens that I've been happy under the lights (and I've tried a lot of them).

I did a bunch of night skiing at Brighton towards the end of last season and I put the phototropic (?) lense into my Smith Triad's. Seemed to work out well.

If you must use them at night, I'd just get some clear replacement lenses for your current Oakley goggles. Then again, that model has been around for a while, and I have no idea if Oakley still offers new lenses for that model. I would much rather spend the 30 or 35 dollars for replacement lenses than 85+ for a completely new pair.

The Bolle Shark with a clear lens costs about $20 and works just fine. I ski four to five days a week at night (and in the sun the other two or three) and use those and love them. I am sure any clear lens on a frame that fits your face is just as good .
