The first thing to look for when getting a new pair of goggles is the shape and size of the goggle itself as there are many different styles available that suit different people better than others.

There is also an oversized goggle that gives you more peripheral vision if you are looking for more awareness out on the slopes.
There are two types of lens that are available for goggles one is more recommended for beginners and the other for more experienced people due to price, the first option is a cylindrical lens this is the standard option that does slightly distort around the edges these are the standard lens you find on many goggles.
The other option is a spherical lens, these are slightly more expensive however they produce better optical clarity due to the fact they are shaped more like the human eye.
The tint on the lens has different effects for different light conditions, in this part we will tell you what lens category is best for what weather type you may be facing.
In low light conditions you will want a category 1 lens as they are designed to enhance light and make you see better in low light conditions.
If the conditions are more variable you should look to use either a category 2-3 lens as they are the most versatile lens that can react to different types of light, they are the most common lens due to their versatility.
In bright conditions a category 3 lens is the fest fit as they add some better definition to combat the brightness of the snow.
In extremely bright conditions you will want a category 4 lens as they are very dark and help block out extreme sun so you can see much better.
There are some really useful features that you may want to keep an eye out for when getting goggles as they can be very useful.
UV protection is a must when looking at goggles as this feature protects your eyes from UV rays that can damage your retinas.
Double Lenses are fantastic for snow sport as two lenses can significantly reduce fogging which means that your vision will be significantly less reduced.
Mirrored lenses are also extremely important as they can reduce glare a great amount meaning that you can see much better.
