Default Cracked Lens

I thought I just found an awesome deal online and ordered some scott alibi limited edition goggles which retail for well over $100 for only $5 on gear trade. However went they arrived they had a huge crack though the outside lens. It doesn't affect my viability at all but I was wondering if these goggles are still usable. Will it cause them to fog up like a mo-fo? Any other problems this could cause? Otherwise the goggles are in perfect condition.

The crack should have been in the description. If not, you should return them as they will fog.

Yes. You get more moisture between the lenses than airflow can evaporate, and you'll never get rid of the fog.

Return them if the crack wasn't in the description. Otherwise, go to prolens.com - I've used them and they're legit.

wow, i feel like a Dumb A. I thought the description said excellent condition and I didnt even notice that it stated that the lens was cracked. I must have been looking at another one. Anyways what ever, im only out a few dollars and maybe theyll still work good on sunny dry days.

You also didn't notice I said go to prolens. You need to read things more carefully. Your replacement lens is $10-$15 at prolens. So now you'll have a pair of Scott Alibi LTD's with an intact lens for $20 total.
