Mar 1, 2008
Professional skiers and snowboarders wear great and attractive gear. Top of the line high tech gear can add to the appeal of the athlete. Gearing up for winter sports can be at times expensive since these equipments pack functions.

After choosing the other gears, the commonly overlooked gear is the ski goggles. It wouldn't be a great idea to buy goggles that has a bloated price in the ski shop at the mountain resort.

Before buying ski goggles read some reviews and specifications on the internet or the manufacturer's brochures. Check thoroughly on specifications since these goggles have models composed of different materials that can come out pretty expensive. This is a lifetime "ski gear" since this never wears out and seldom breaks that is if you don't crash face first. Hopefully this will not happen.

Majority of ski goggles come as a large piece of eye gear. This is constructed that way for its function. Ski goggles protect the eyes from being hit with debris, snow and ice. This winter activity is a fast and thrilling sport that a skier must never allow his vision to be bothered by something else or he might end up smacked on a bark.

Ski goggles are framed with semi-flexible material like nylon, rubber and propionate so when a collision occurs the goggles will just bend and not transmit the impact on the cheek bone. These said materials do not brittle when it is exposed to the sun and snow for periods of time. An elastic thick strap attached to the goggle goes around the head of the skier for a perfect fit. Ski goggles need to fit snugly on the face to avoid it from falling off when engaging in a slope or jump.

For a skier that needs corrective vision, a wide range of goggles can be chosen. There are models that allow eyeglasses and sunglasses to be worn under the lens. But for those who are comfortable wearing contact lenses it can be perfectly fine and safe. There are ski goggle manufacturers that customize vision correcting lenses. It might be pricey but it sure is worth it if you are really into skiing.

Choosing the lens is 80% of the goggle selection process. Make sure that the lens protect against ultraviolet rays as a basic feature. There are wide arrays of lenses to choose from, whether it may be the lens color or the composition and feature. A good advice would be to avoid wearing polarized lenses on the snow. Polarized lenses may prevent the skier from seeing icy patches but it has something positive about it as polarized lenses prevent light from the snow from bouncing back which most skiers find bothersome.
