Smith Phenom Ski Goggles

Smith Phenom Ski Goggles – superior optics with a great fit
Your eyes will be comfortably protected behind a pair of Smith Phenom goggles. No fogging here, Smith has certainly thought of everything to keep goggles from fogging up. The Smith spherical series lenses allows for a wider field of vision and extra volume to maximize ventilation making fogging a thing of the past.
Smith’s patented Vaporator lens gasket bonds the inner and outer lenses together to eliminate delamination, the biggest cause of between-the-lens fogging. The lens also has a microporous filter attached that increases fog resistance by allowing air to pass through the lens, but keeping water molecules out.
A molded strap adjustment system helps you get your fit dialed in quickly ensuring a snug and comfortable fit and the Articulating Outrigger Positioning System creates a complete seal around the face with or without a ski helmet on.

I am pretty partial to Smith goggles since I have a smaller face and they tend to fit me better than other brands. Plus they come in so many different styles it is highly unlikely that you will run into someone else wearing your goggles on the mountain. They also come in several different lens types and they are pretty easy to swap in and out. The Red Mirror lens is great for sunny days and Ignitor Mirror is a great all around lens. For flat light and low light days, try out the Sensor Mirror. If you want to be able to change out lenses on the fly, take a look at the Smith I/OS Interchangeable Optic Goggles.
