Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have spent quite some time deciding between Oakley Airbrake and this goggle. I decided to try both. I have used this goggle for 2 weekends during bright light condition as well as cloudy day. The lens photochromic feature really works well. I can see the slope surface really well in all light conditions, starting from morning bright daylight until darker and shadowy afternoon towards the last lift. It beats the needs of bringing and changing lens, such as Oakley Airbrake, even though it's very easy to change lens in Airbrake. However, the nose fitting is not as good as Oakley Airbrake. I don't have big nose, and there is quite a gap between my nose and Zeal Eclipse goggle. There is no nose gap when I wore the Oakley Airbrake (standard version; not the Asian Fit version), which I think a big plus for Oakley. Because the outer side of the nose fitting is higher than the inner side, there is a small viewing dead zone in the middle, unless you push this Eclipse goggle a bit lower. Even though the nose fitting is not as great as Airbrake, I still choose to keep this Eclipse goggle instead of Airbrake, because I don't need to bring extra lens. I hope Zeal will make a better nose fitting and eliminate viewing dead zone like the Oakley Airbrake.
