I recently went snowboarding over the Christmas holidays and I happened to go on a day when it was snowing heavily and had periods of high winds. My first run down the hill I could hardly see a thing, I was squinting my eyes the entire run and was frequently falling down due to the fact I couldn't see. I went into the pro shop and the cashier suggests I get the clear lens Oakley E FRAME goggles and she said I wouldn't regret. Boy was she right! As soon as I adjusted the strap and put them on it automatically felt comfortable and fit firmly over my face. I ventured on top of the hill and was ecstatic at the fact that I could now snowboard, open eyed, and didn't have to worry about the blowing snow getting in my face. The clear lenses allowed for superb visibility. Also the lens didn't allow for much snow buildup and they were fog resistant so they stayed perfectly clear for the rest of the day. The clear lens also allowed for excellent depth perception so I could accurately see where I was going, and what kind of terrain I was going through. Overall I thought the Oakley goggles were an excellent purchase and I have a feeling they will bring me enjoyment for many years up on the ski hill.
