10. Zionor® 6 Colors Lagopus Snowmobile Snowboard Skate Ski Goggles
These helmet-and-mask compatible goggles are made of VLT 16.6% REVO mirror glass, and feature a spherical lens that allows for an extremely wide vision field. Breathe easy with the two-way ventilation holes, and protect your eyes with UV ray protection and an anti-fog, anti-scratch lens. Perfect for any multi-purpose winter athlete’s every need.
9. Zionor Professional Lagopus Snowmobile Snowboard Skate Ski Goggles
These Zionor goggles are extremely similar to #10, with a few tweaks. Look for a slightly wider field of vision and a lens that is more easily detached. It’s really a toss-up, but we’re going with our gut and putting this pair a bit higher.
8. Spy Optic Targa 3 Goggles
Spy Optic’s advanced offering utilizes several creative methods of safety improvement. The flexible frame on these goggles will fit to any face, and the scoop ventilation system ensures that no lens fogging will occur. Also featuring 100% UV ray protection, these goggles are buoyed by the face foam section’s moisture-wicking Dri-Force fleece. Perfect for sweaty days on the mountain!
7. Smith Optics Scope Goggle
This impressive Smith Optics model improves on the aforementioned competition by introducing compression-molded hypo-allergenic face foam to the equation. Also equipped with a Fog-X anti-fog inner lens, these lenses are ideal for any skiers prone to mild (or severe) reactions to previous goggles. At this incredibly low price point, what’s not to like?
6. Oakley O-Frame MX Goggles with Clear Lens
Fashionistas and fashionistos alike will dig these Oakley goggles. The clear lens allows a ton of light in so that skiers know exactly what is happening in their immediate vicinity, and the Lexan lens employs anti-fog technology along with impact-and-scratch resistant tech to ensure excellent performance even on the most humid of winter days!
5. Snowboarding Black Frame Amber Color Uni Lens Goggles
Ah, simplicity! These goggles hearken back to a time when safe and simple went hand in hand — but don’t let the uncomplicated design fool you, these goggles are an excellent bargain. The polycarbonate lens is shatter-resistant, protected up to UV400, and equipped with sophisticated anti-fog technology. For effective gear at a can’t-miss price, you can’t do any better than these.
4. Oakley Flight Deck Ski Goggles
Another design from Oakley, another fashionable and drop-dead gorgeous pair of goggles.

The platonized lens material also offers guaranteed protection against UVA, UVB, and UVC rays along with protection from harmful blue light.
3. Bolle Scream II Ski Goggles
These flashy goggles offer perhaps the best glare protection on this list with their premium Aurora high definition mirror finish. Their P80 anti-fog treatment and anti-scratch coating make them a worthy entry on this list and sure not to disappoint any devoted rider.
2. Bolle Mojo Snow Goggles
This throwback style features advanced lens technology and unparalleled optical clarity, and reduces fogging better than any other pair of goggles mentioned so far by utilizing flow-tech venting technology. The double lens and thermal barrier are impressively helpful, but subpar anti-scratch technology dooms this pair of goggles to the silver medal.
1. Bolle Volt Ski Goggle
Notice a pattern at the top of the list? Bolle is manufacturing incredible sets of goggles, and these are no different. Featuring a dual-pane thermal barrier, flow-tech venting system, and carbo-glass outer lens layer, these goggles will keep your face safe and remain unscratched themselves for many years to come. The premium anti-fog layer in the middle lens is an engineering marvel that sets it apart from its competitors.
