Powder Is No Match for Smith's Peeper-Protecting Snowboard Goggles

Illustration for article titled Powder Is No Match for Smiths Peeper-Protecting Snowboard Goggles

We're less than a month away from snow season, which means if you plan on hitting the mountain on opening day, you need to make sure you're gear is good to go. Smith I/O Goggles will at least have you covered in the protective eyewear department.


This is a pair recommended by the editors at Transworld Snowboarding for their fit and because they come with two lenses—you wear the Ignitor Mirror on a normal day and the Blue Sensor on a nasty day when you're just getting blasted in the face with snow. It's apparently fairly easy to swap between the two. So for $175, you're getting basically two goggles that aren't supposed to fog up much. It doesn't hurt that they look cool, either. Let's just hope for lots and lots of powder this season. [SmithOptics via Transworld Snowboarding]

Anyone know if these suckers fit flat East Asian faces snugly? I've yet to find a pair of goggles that don't let air in because of the shape of my nose bridge.
