    Style that Lasts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This will be my second season with these Goggles, and I they have been nothing short of awesome. The tightness is highly adjustable and I've never had a problem with them slipping down or up (this is due to the anit-slip silicon strips that line the inside of the goggle strap. I have been a big fan of my Oakley sunglasses for years and these goggles offer the same, great durability, and plenty of style ways.

    Fog Persists

      Styling is good, Build quality is good, fit is good with a size medium Giro G10 helmet, and they vent pretty well. However, I ski pretty aggressively and I build up a lot of heat. Unfortunately, my search for a lens that can handle my swampy dome piece continues. I'll keep using these unless I find a goggle that can handle a hot head better. They work fine as long as I stay on fast paced portions of the mountain, but if I get into some thick back country, where I am still learning the technique and burning a lot of calories without keeping a decent amount of airflow they will fog up. Also, they fog up after an aggressive run once I reach the lift. Maybe I dump more heat from my head than most, or maybe my expectations are too high, but I just can't seem to find a goggle that can keep it's cool when I cannot. If you don't have a head that leaks like a sieve, these goggle will do the trick. Also, the Jet Black with the Yellow lens does a decent job in all conditions. Was able to read the snow well in the flat light caused by heavy clouds, light snow, and winds kicking everything up. On a bright day, the yellow will leave you squinting, but gives unparallelled ability to really read the lay of the snow.

      Meh theyll do

        picked these up on whiskey for 40 bucks and i have to say they were a steal. theyre really comfy and havent fogged on me yet, BUT the vision on these arent very good. the peripherals are ok but they sit off your face a lot so when looking forward you can see the front of your board which is a problem. they are for a smaller to medium face so theyre good for a girl. if your a guy and considering buying these i highly suggest you spend your money elsewhere, i would suggest spy zeds or smith I/O's if you can get them on the cheap

        Comfortable fit, bad peripheral vision

          The goggles fit me very well, with or without my helmet, and they get great ventilation as I had no fogging issues. My only negative is that the goggles sit a bit off your face and therefore, limit your peripheral vision when compared to other goggles I have.

          Atomic Orange With Persimmon Lense

            I love these goggles- I bought these at a local sports shop but I had to write a review to give you the heads up. These goggles are great. If you want to know if your buying a good goggle online- a lot of people head for Oakley. These are essentially Oakley Crowbars- The lens is just a bit tweaked. But the best part is that you're buying a great goggle without "breaking the bank." I bought these for a little over $80 at my local spots shop, so you're getting a good deal I assure you. I have had no problems with these goggles and the Atomic Orange W/ Persimmon lense is spot on steezy. So lets recap here- you want a sweet looking goggle, a durable goggle, a goggle that won't break the bank, and the right to brag to your buddies about your sweet new Oakleys you picked up for the price of an O-Frame. This is your goggle.

            Radical

              I love the gummy frames, and they are a perfect fit for my RED helmet. The "wings" give you extra flexibility in case your helmet is a little too narrow.
              The ventilation on these things is amazing. They just survived a snowy, cold weekend in the Wasatch without a problem.
              I would recommend these to anyone.

              Atomic Orange With Persimmon Lense

              steeze by surprise!

                So I've been rockin either a-frames or wisdoms as long as I've been snowboarding, but I recently handed down those goggles to other peeps because I finally bit the bullet and placed an order for a set of oakley customized crowbars. Anywhoo, the custom goggles were taking so dang long to assemble because a part was backordered that I went out to the outlet mall one day to score a pair of goggles on the cheap to tide me over till my crows finally came in.

                Found the 2010 Ambush Burnt Retina W/Fire Iridium Lens for $40 at a Zumiez! Totally lucky, I guess they were a barely used return or something.

                So yeah, I was kind of hesitant to rock a goggle that wasn't oakley's top of the line, but let me tell you, the Ambush is a great goggle if you can find a good deal on it. They were just as clear as my A's and Wisdom's, and oh so steezey. In fact, I was rockin them on a SUPER foggy overcast day and I could actually see better with the fire iridium lens than I expected. Overall a great choice if you can't swing the extra $30 for Crowbars. I say get em!

                steeze by surprise!

                ehh...

                  While these goggles are a great way to get a giant O on the side of your head without breaking bank, I suggest you throw down the extra bills and get one of Oakley's higher-end offerings. If those are just too much money, look at either the O-frame or another brand, like Spy's Targa II. Some high-end features are emulated on this goggle: silicone on straps, strap outriggers, and 3-layer foam. The lens is not spherical, which restricts peripheral vision and encourages fogging. These goggles are basically the Crowbar without the spherical lens. The Ambush is a nice goggle by itself, but its pricepoint is too close to its higher-end siblings to justify it.

                  good stuff

                    I wore these goggles in CO and they worked great. I could see all day in snowy and cloudy and sometimes light sun. I got the polished white with black iridium lense. I have a small face and they fit quite well. I haven't tried them with a helmet yet but the hinges on the sides seem to cover that.

                    how are these while wearing a helmet?

                    Best Answer

                    I've had these goggles for two seasons now and have now used them with only a hat, with a k2 helmet that was too big itself for a s, and now a smith vario i that ive used once on memorial day this year at jay. they have always fit whatever i was wearing very well, as long as theyre not getting knocked down by a loose helmet! these fit/look well without a helmet and have a bigger frame in addition to hinges on the straps, perfect for helmet-wear. they dont let snow in, either. nor do they fog (unless youre breathing right on them). freezing rain sucks with them, but everything sucks when theres freezing rain. super happy with them, especially because i got them on sale for $48 and free two day shipping. my very first backcountry.com purchase, now my go-to gear store!

                    I need some goggles for winter biking, but most do not have very good peripheral vision. Also, I have a small face. Heard the crowbar was good, but for large faces... any suggestions? Also, what is an inexpensive snowboard helmet for winter biking?
