switching lenses

I have a pair of spy soldier glasses that are a year or two old. How hard is it to switch out the lenses? I was looking to buy a clear lens to put in for night riding. I like my soldier goggles but can't find a pair for sale that come with the clear lens?

Separate the top of the frame from the lens and work your way around.

i can't get the lens to fit perfectly in the frame. anyone else have this problem? its a bitch fitting the notches on the lens and the frames. i followed the instructions on which notches to do first, but is there a method to fit the lenses in easier instead of trying to force them in?

Nope, you gotta force the little stubs in the frame into the notches.

Try getting the sides in first, then the bottom, then the top.

dont be scared to man-handle them while you put them in, its too hard when your trying not to touch them too much, just break out the silky cloth and clean em up

I found the best way to have a second lens is to just buy a second pair of goggles. Swapping lenses is a pain in the ass.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly
