Great lens, but be very gentle with it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Excellent lens, very easy to change lenses out for changing conditions. Persimmon is perfect for your basic snow day with low light, but not completely overcast. As a reviewer mentions below, though, be very careful wiping away fog, water, debris....for some reason, the coating is very fragile and even if you're using a soft cloth (I was using a chamois from a different pair of goggles) you can very easily ruin the lens and get a big smudge across it. Only use the provided drawstring bag, and even then just dab it, don't wipe it.

The coating really isn't that fragile as long as you don't wipe it when it's wet. The inside, if wet, will just smear, but it tells you that on the bag. The outside, I have found, is really robust, and after multiple falls on snow, wiping it with a glove and jacket, it still doesn't have scratches.

Mine doesn't say anything at all on the bag. And it seems awfully tough to me to wipe off fogged/snowy goggles that are "dry". The coating should be substantial enough to withstand wiping water off of them with the provided bag. These are supposed to be snow goggles, not a delicate piece of technical equipment.
