SKI GOGGLES | USER GUIDE

Here, WE HAVE Summarized THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS
 WHEN BUYING SKI GOGGLES for you. 
FOR INFORMATION ON SUNGLASSES, JUST SCROLL DOWN A bit.

 

how should ski goggles fit

Everyone has a different face shape. That's why we at POP EYES offer ski goggles and snowboard goggles in different sizes, so that you can choose the best goggles for your face. The perfect fit of your ski goggles is important for comfort and protection. Our ski goggles should protect you from the sunshine, wind, cold and snowfall. To guarantee this, your ski goggles must fit snugly and fit perfectly with your ski helmet. The glasses shouldn't press and of course not slip. If you don't have an extremely wide or very narrow face, then all of our ski goggles will fit you perfectly. Do you have a broad face? Then we particularly recommend ski goggles BETTY and GREG! If you have a very slim face, we recommend our ski goggles JAMIE. When choosing your ski goggles, the shape of your ski helmet is also important: If your glasses and helmet do not match, a gap can appear on your forehead and your ski goggles cannot protect you perfectly.

which ski goggle lens color is best

The best ski goggles for poor visibility: Ideally, your ski goggles are perfectly tailored to the given weather and visibility conditions. The tint of the lens of the ski goggles and the mirror are very important for the light transmission and for your vision on the mountain. Less light penetrates through our ski goggles with dark and highly mirrored lenses than through our ski goggles with light and not strongly mirrored lenses. That is why we recommend our ski goggles with dark, mirrored lenses for sunny days on the mountain and our ski goggles with light lenses and a light mirror for days with fog and snowfall.

what color ski goggles

With regard to light transmission, ski goggles can be divided into different categories.

CATEGORY 0: more than 80% light transmission – perfect heavy snowfall or fog
CATEGORY 1: approx. 43% to 80% light transmission – perfect for snowfall or bad sight
CATEGORY 2: approx. 18% to 41% light transmission – great for days that are partly sunny and partly cloudy
CATEGORY 3: approx. 8% to 18% light transmission – offers very good visibility on predominantly sunny days
CATEGORY 4: approx. 3% to 8% light transmission – the lens for continuously strong sunshine

SKI GOGGLES WITH INTERCHANGEABLE LENSES

For those of you who travel a lot on the mountain, we particularly recommend ski goggles with interchangeable lenses. You can use it to choose the right glass depending on the weather.
There are two different systems for this in our POP EYES collection:

JAMIE: MAGNETIC INTERCHANGEABLE LENSES

On the one hand there is our JAMIE ski goggles - with three magnetic interchangeable lenses, you can simply select the right lens and change it immediately if necessary. Eight ideally placed magnets ensure a bomb-proof hold, but the panes can still be changed very easily with one hand movement. The best way to do this is to hold the lens between the nasal incision and the upper edge and press the lens mount back to the side. In no time at all, the disc can be changed and a new one inserted.
The selection of the three interchangeable lenses is ideally suited to sunny or changeable days or days with heavy snowfall and poor visibility and corresponds to categories 3 | 2 | 0.

Ski goggles JAMIE: which color for which weather?
clear glass: ideal for poor visibility, fog and heavy snowfall
colored lens: ideal for rather changeable days when sun and clouds alternate
black lens: ideal for sunshine, the mirror perfectly protects you from UV rays


BOB: MAGNETIC ADDITIONAL Lense SYSTEM

On the other hand, with our BOB ski goggles, we have ski goggles with an additional magnetic lens in our range:
BOB has a light yellow base lens for poor visibility and a blue mirror for your sunny days on the mountain. This additional pane can easily be fixed to the base glass using a magnet system. So you can always choose the ideal lens for any weather with one movement. The additional pane can also be easily stowed in the pouch in your jacket pocket.

Ski goggles BOB: which color for which weather?
yellow base lense: great in poor visibility, fog and snowfall!
The yellow glass increases the contrast and therefore bumps on the slope are more visible.
blue or black additional lense: ideal for sunshine, the mirror perfectly protects you from UV rays
You are guaranteed an optimal view and the best protection in nice weather! 

 

So do you have one pair of ski goggles that are suitable for all weather conditions?
We can confidently answer this question with "Yes!" answer: With our JAMIE and BOB ski goggles you are ideally equipped for the whole season - one single ski goggle for all weathers.

Conclusion: JAMIE and BOB are the perfect ski goggles for women and men who are looking for ski goggles for poor visibility and sunshine alike.

can you wear prescription glasses under ski goggles

Are you wearing precription glasses and looking for ski goggles that you can also wear with your optical glasses? Then you are at the right place at POP EYES, because some of our ski goggles have a special design so that you can easily wear your optical glasses underneath! Ski goggles that are equipped with this feature are also called OTG ski goggles (Over The Glasses). Wider frames plus a lateral cut-out in the face foam are ideal, as these two features ensure enough space for the glasses temples. When choosing ski goggles for glasses wearers, the ventilation of the ski goggles is also particularly important, because if the air cannot circulate properly, the ski goggles' lens will fog up. These ski goggles in our collection are ideal for you if you wear glasses: ski goggles BOB, ski goggles LARRY, ski goggles JOE. Due to the perfect size and the freedom it gives you, we particularly recommend our ski goggles JOE.

ski goggles: spherical or cylindrical lens

In addition to different mirrors and tints, there are also two different lens shapes for ski goggles. Your ski goggles can be cylindrical or spherical. Cylindrical ski goggles are curved horizontally and flat vertically. Spherical ski goggles are arched both horizontally and vertically. If you prefer large ski goggles, we recommend products with spherical lenses. If you prefer medium-sized or flatter ski goggles, we recommend ski goggles with cylindrical ski goggles.

how to clean ski goggle lenses

It is best to clean the lens of your ski goggles with warm soapy water. Then rinse the ski goggles with clear water and dry them with a soft cloth. Please do not use any aggressive cleaning agents such as alcohol, detergents or solvents. When the ski goggles are dry it is best to store them in the enclosed bag. Do not dry the ski goggles near a heat source and avoid extreme temperatures. Ski goggles' lenses are not exposed to the natural aging process if they are stored properly. We recommend replacing the ski goggles after 3–5 years of use.
