Verified Buyer Reviewed by Night14 from Salt Lake City on Saturday, February 23, 2013Love the field of view!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by bmp from Boston, MA on Saturday, December 1, 2012Nice googles - big field of vision and less is great for low light conditions.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by SuefromSydney from Sydney Australia on Thursday, November 15, 2012I was looking for some good quality ski googles with spherical lenses for better vision, that are helmet compatible. Bought these goggles in white for me and black for my daughter. They are great quality, very stylish and fit perfectly with the Giro Grove helmets that I bought in the same order. If you like the Giro goggles, try the helmets too - really comfortable and top quality. I am a recent convert to helmets, for both safety and comfort. The Grove helmet has sold out so I can't review it separately. Can't wait to try them out on the slopes - will have to wait for next July (Aussie winter). Also looking forward to wearing my Obermeyer ski jacket from STP. Both the jacket and the helmet sold out because they were such a great deal. I get all my family's ski gear from STP now. Keep checking with STP for the best deals!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by John from Jay Peak on Monday, March 19, 2012I own a pair of Zeal Goggles (which are terrific in bright conditions), but use the Giro Persimmon Boost goggles in low light and cloudy conditions. The Carl Zeis lenses are the best.
- Pros: great low light lens, Workable in sunny sky

“What is the difference between the silver rose 30 lens and the persimmon boost 60 lens on the Giro Basis Snowsport goggle?”

It is a great storm tint. 52% VLT
No they are not designed to fit over glasses, they fit your face closely. (You might get them over very small lightweight frameless glasses though). But you should look for goggles that are specifically designed to fit over glasses. Most brands make a model for glasses wearers. I wear contact lenses skiing, so I can wear goggles comfortably, I think it is safer too.
