These goggles are very versatile and adjust to the light -- great product at a great price!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Trailrunner from Green Mountains, VT on Monday, November 24, 2014Great optics here (they're Zeal, so the quality was superb as expected). The connection from the strap to the lens/frame, however, is based on a tiny plastic pin, presumably so they'd have a nice pivoting action for better fit. This broke literally the first time I put the goggles over my head in order to try on the frame size and make sure they were good enough (other reviews suggested they limited lateral viewing, which is true, but not a huge concern for me given what they're intended to do as ski goggles). Given the price I paid (not much, with the typically excellent STP coupon), the recent change back to return shipping fees at STP, and the fact that if I return them, they'll end up in the landfill, I'm going to hang onto them and simply superglue the heck out of the link, fusing the strap buckle to the frame on that side. Not ideal, but better than contributing an optically perfect set of goggles to the landfill. Sad to say this, and I only review negatively at STP when it's a real quality issue, but I'd pass on these. To be fair, Zeal does warranty their optics, and STP would be more than happy to replace these.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sharon from Wyoming on Friday, November 21, 2014These goggles are airtight and do not fog up at all. I wore them in the evening while walking in the snow when it was almost dark but could still see well.
Reviewed by Paula p from Oroville on Tuesday, April 15, 2014The goggle fits on face with helmet, and the lg goggle frame limits the lens size and then visibility. Nice goggle for a kid.
Reviewed by Mike from New York on Monday, March 31, 2014These work great! The lens is to die for - I used it both in direct afternoon sun and in very flat light of an overcast foggy day. Did not get a chance to use it at night yet, but given how well it worked in flat light I can't imagine it would have any problems in night skiing. Polarization works great - I tested it by looking through the goggles at a reflective stovetop and saw no reflections whatsoever when goggles were horizontal and plenty of reflection when they were vertical. The frame fits my helmet well. Ventilation is quite good - I used it on a moderately cold morning (15 degrees Fahrenheit) and it would not fog up (actually, it would but defogged right away) even when I intentionally blew my breath up at the lens. The padding is three layers of foam and felt that feels great on the face and goes easily on and off the helmet's edge. The strap is lined with grippy strips of polymer on its underside so the goggles never pop off the helmet if you move them up.
One could wish for a wider field of view, but it's certainly adequate in these goggles - I did not feel restricted at all. One could also wish for more coolness - mirror lenses or a fancy looking bulging frame. But as functional goggles one could hardly ask for more.
Question & Answer
The lens size is 170 mm wide and 75 mm tall. It is best to measure these to your face.
“what size are these goggles? I'm looking for medium/large men's goggles for a guy with who wears a large/XL giro helmet. he really wants polarizing lenses, which are apparently hard to find.”
The lens size is 170 mm wide and 75 mm tall. These are helmet compatible.
