I'm looking at getting my first pair of goggles. I do have glasses and I'm concerned about fogging. Playing paintball I never really had fogging issues as I always had thermal, or dual pain lenses.

I'm looking at the I/OX's or another set with a fan. I really like the i/ox looks and the two lens option. I know they have i/ox with a fan but that's more then I want to spend. I thought about buying two pair and selling the one I like least. Any input?

Also not sure if it matters but ill be going to Breckenridge in a couple weeks.

I have the IOx and haven't had any issues with fogging. You could always order from backcountry and if you end up having a fogging issue just exchange (no questions asked policy) them for the ones with the fan.

Quality ski/snowboard goggles use a double lens as well, the biggest issue with fogging is the extremes in ambient temp and body temp.

I have the Knowledge OTG goggles and like them a lot. They work well with my Smith Gage helmet.

I'll be ordering directly from smith. My fear is getting out there and having issues that will ruin my trip. I suppose some good anti fog for my glasses lens would be a good idea as well.

I wear glasses myself and have never had problems with my goggles fogging. However, depending on the temperature, I do have trouble with my glasses fogging when my goggles are on. I've tried a number of things to stop it but most things don't work. I find the only thing that keeps them from fogging is to keep my goggles on my helmet until I'm moving and then pull them down. When I'm moving they don't fog up. Its just when I am strapping in or riding the lift.

Love my IOX turbo, but if you get them and plan a trip, make sure to bring along 2 extra AAA batteries. Fan sucks them dry in a heartbeat. I now only turn the fan on now when I absolutely need to.

i know this thread is really old and you probably already have your preferred goggle. I read that you play paintball. Being a paintball player, im sure youre familiar with DYE. Well they have branched out into the snow sport world with a goggle line. I very much recommend them. I loved DYE playing paintball and i love them riding my snowboard. Im in no way shape or form associated with the company. i just really love their goggles for both sports.

Dye Snow - Innovative top quality products for todays most demanding Riders.

This is the Click, or "CLK" for short. Its the fastest changing lense in snow goggles. Its the bigger of the 2 goggles they have in their line


This is the "T1" The smaller of the 2, but still not small by any means


they have lots of frame/strap/lens combos
