Oakley Crowbar Snow Goggles (Matte White/Fire Iridium)
 
So I'm about to head up to the mountain and I check the current weather: "Partly cloudy" reads Mt. Spokane's website. Suddenly I realize that my goggles won't provide me much protection against the glaring sun. After making a desperate Google search for a snowboard shop, I find one that has a few pairs; I decided to go with the Oakley Crowbar Snow goggles because they were just within my budget, and they had an orange lens that would remedy the sun's rays.

Honestly, I couldn't have wished for better goggles. The lens provided super sharp vision and did an excellent job of reflecting the sunlight, which came in handy because it was a very sunny day. It was also really comfortable to wear, even after hours of riding, and it fit very snug on my head. On the durability side of things, these goggles were as tough as leather: I managed to catch my toeside edge on a choppy section of the slope and I hit my head on the packed snow. I was pretty sure my goggles took most of the impact, so I examined them to see if they were damaged, but surprisingly the goggles were just fine. My only criticism would be that the pair was fairly small and offered only a limited view range.

Overall the Oakley Crowbar Snow are exceptional goggles and I would recommend them to someone who wants a new pair without breaking his or her wallet. The goggles come with many great features like anti-fog treatment, triple fleece face foam, and Flexible O MatterŪ chassis.



You can get yourself a pair here at: oakley.com

Loved mine too for about 3 seasons. They gave up the soul now and I got myself a pair of Smith I/O.

I accidently posted this in the wrong category, so there are two identical ones. Do you know how to delete a thread?

Just picked up a pair with the extra included lens for $122. All I had were Oakley A frames with Fire Iridium. So hard to see mogs with those in flat light and the Smith's actually fit me better.
