Are my 11 year old goggles up to par?
 
As the title states these are 11 years old but only have a few very light scratches on the lens. Has goggle tech advanced so much that a new pair would make a world of a difference? Back in the day these were top of the line $200+ Oakleys.

I believe those are Wisdoms, right? You're good-to-go. You may even find replacement lenses on the Oakley site if needed.

Do they fog? Do they keep the snow and cold out? If so, good to go! The pair im currently using are about 7 years old, and still work fine.

Dude you got it! Wow even this many years later lenses are still available and in a lot of different tints and coatings, that's sick! Does this look like the same color lens? The pic is pretty true to life.

If they're the same then then it's the "Persimmon" color. I know what a huge difference polarized lenses make when looking at reflections especially off of water and glass. How big of a benefit is it when using them in the snow?

Yeah they're in great shape, don't fog and keep my face warm, I think I'll stick with em! Thanks!

It looks like a Persimmon lense to me. I appreciate having tinted lenses most during medium to bright conditions, and typically wear goggles in all conditions.

Also, you can sometimes find goggle replacement lenses at reduced cost on the Oakley Vault site: Oakley Sunglasses, Oakley Goggles, and Apparel - Oakley Vault
