They'll be able to see right into the depths of your soul.


Like any other goggle out there, it depends on which lens you get. Be more specific.

You have to buy the optional contact lenses to make your eyes invisible behind the goggles.

depends on the lenses. With von zipper's low VLT chromed lenses (fire chrome, amber chrome, bronze chrome, black chrome) you can't see the wearer's eyes through them. The rest of their lenses, the eyes can be seen through.

personally, I thought the skylabs were kinda crappy. You can get a pair of dragon rogue just as cheap and they look, fit and perform much better.

Good choice on the Skylab but you're going to want to go with a lens with low visual light transmittance. Black Chrome, Fire Chrome and Gold Chrome will all do you right... Have a gander... VonZipper Skylab Goggles

low VLT lens for sunny days and high VLT lens for overcast days.

I did the cheapo swapping the lenses in just one frame thing for years, but it's a time consuming hassle...even with the so called "easy" lens change models. Finally just got two separate sets of goggles so I can just walk to my car, grab the other goggles and go.

That can definitely be the best solution sometimes... Take a look at our El Kabong next time you're in a shop...

See how easy it can be...
