Goggle quiver

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Just been cleaning and assessing my current quiver

Got 4 pairs in recent use

2 Persimmon/ Orange
1 Hi pink
1 Hi yellow

Plus an older Scott Amplifier low usage

Plus some older other spares.

Anything else I need to add?


Better advice is probably to stop buying goggles when I find a good pair at a good price just because they are expensive if you need to replace a pair in a hurry in resort wink

@Dave of the Marmottes, what do you wear when itís sunny? Coz Iím sure you were whinging about the (very) pink ones...

Also, not so much hi-pink as hi-Iím-wearing-the-most-pinkest-goggles-imaginable-ironically, innit?

If you ain't whingeing it ain't skiing. Currently whingeing about how unfair it is that there is all this summer nonsense to get through.

@Dave of the Marmottes, I hear ya! Though thereís a storm rolling through at the moment which means tomorrow/Monday might actually be late season powder days...

I got Airbrake prisms with hi pink I like a light transmitting goggle and the dark one for bluebird days. Easy lens swap. I'm probably going to buy two lenses in the sale in case they stop making them. However, I recently got a pair of Jublo cat 2-4 photo chromatic sunglasses at the EOSB in the sale (140 euro down to 39 euro) and to be honest, I had to keep asking if they were getting lighter and darker or if the light was constant. When going form light to dark (e.g. in buildings) the change was so quick I seemed to have the same visual intensity. Very impressed.

Indeed If I was ever going to get another pair of goggles I may have considered photochromatic. However, I like the prism contrast (it does work) so I'll stick with them.

@Dave of the Marmottes,

Could it be that you need multi lenses ratherbthan multi goggles?! Too many things to mess up forget about in that, unless some are permanently resident.

I have Smith I/Os with blacklight (somehow horribly scratched over the summer Puzzled but useable) only needed for late season blue sky days, red somethings for sunnyish days, blue somethings for crap light.

If Iím on a planned powder day, Iíll usually have a spare pair of something fairly all use (e.g. Uvex Gold) just in case of a barn sale getting snow where I wonít get it out.

Otherwise thatís it. I almost always have bifocal sunnies and some folding readers Confused Confused As age crap. And you donít want to be throwing shapes with the kids in the Chavanne with goggles on...

Oh yeah, back to the OP. My quiver is a single pair of Jade Prizm, coz I broke all the others. Seems fine, and tougher too. I was going to buy more but I might not bother.

One quiver for me = Julbo Aerospace Cameleon goggles.
If itís a white out day then itís the Oakley Hi-Yellows.

@Dave of the Marmottes,

Anything else you need?? Military grade night vision goggles for the night decent on the Birthday Bash? Other than that, I reckon you have all bases covered. Madeye-Smiley

Pinky persimon for when the light is bad,
then sun glasses when the light gets better ..
That is unless you are a GS or downhill racer ... then goggles may come in handy.

@DrLawn, I now use inserts, therefore wear I my goggles in all conditions, the ability to switch from Rose all the way through to Black is useful to me and Iíll typically use all 3 lenses across the 3ish weeks of skiing I typically get.

@RichClark, the real issue for me is speed of reaction to shade and/or cloud. I broke my leg last year on a bump last year when a cloud blew over the sun on a very bright day while I was already in a shady gully. In the time it took for my eyes to adjust I hit the next bump blind and didn't absorb enough folding my knee and cracking my fib. Hence I'll always trend toward high VLT now.

Ouch! More often than not, if I start the day in my Rose, I rarely bother to change lenses. I find that the Rose is useful for such a wide range of conditions.
