    There's a new sheriff in quick lens change town.

    Anon takes its already revolutionary magnet-based lens-swapping technology to the next level with the M2 Goggle. Now frameless for maximum field of vision and a cutting-edge look, this design makes changing lenses insanely easy and fast.

    Magna-Tech quick lens change technology got an upgrade on the M2. Anon removed the outer frame and buttons so all you have to do to take off the lens is literally grip it and rip it. The magnets are strong enough to survive a tomahawk through powder without coming off so you don't have to worry about losing your lens when you take a tumble. The large spherical lens tapers from the optical center toward the periphery for a wide field of vision with minimal distortion. Full perimeter channel venting allows maximum airflow to keep your lens fog-free, and triple-layer face foam provides a comfy fit that seals out the elements.

    I am extremely disappointed in the quality of Anon and I will never waste money on their merchandise again. I bought goggles and the FIRST day I wore them skiing they got wet and the lens coating bubbled off. This is my second lens I have bought from Anon and both bubbled off the same way. My goggles are ruined and when I called and emailed Anon no one ever responded.

    how cool are these?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    when I first heard about these I had doubts. I mean magnets? really? But when it comes to changing out lenses on the fly these are by far the easiest. The lens clarity is top notch as well. Kinda spendy but well worth it in my book.

    Quick, Easy and Clear

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been nothing short of impressed with the Anon M2 goggles. The Magna-Tech lens technology comes in handy when the weather changes during a day on the mountain. It has saved me both visibility and time on dozens of occasions. It's also good for those skiers and boarders who like a quick change of scenery. There have been no issues with fogging with these goggles since I purchased them. Comes with a hard case. Easily adjustable. Comfort is great, true to "medium and large" face sizes.

    WARNING - Use caution when putting these goggles up over your head or helmet while on the chair lift. I've had a few close calls being careless. Not a cheap replacement.

    Anon M2 Goggles

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    As far as clarity and visibility go, these are really good lenses. Sharp images, for the most part; though other lenses I've used are better. However, I had extreme fog issues with both sets of lenses ON THE INSIDE OF THE DOUBLE WALLED LENS the second day I used them. They are very sensitive to moisture, fogging, and are fairly delicate, too. After being diligent with drying them out after each use, fogging issues continue to be an issue at times, tho not as extreme as the second day. Still... fogging of any level is sort of deal breaker for me.
    I'm pretty hard on gear and I need stuff that is going to keep up with the pounding as well as perform when I need them to. Having both lenses fog is unacceptable for goggles at this price point.
    If you do choose to use these goggles, make sure they are the right fit for you face; that can be a major issue if you don't try them on prior to purchasing.

    Solid Goggles

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Convenience, style, and effectiveness. I had my doubts about the magnetic lens when I first got them, but all hesitation has vanished. They lock so securely in place, that falling hard enough to knock them out would result in worries greater than just a lost lens. They're comfortable on the face, and fit nicely under my Smith Gauge helmet. The lens replacement is super handy for those days that start out bluebird, and when a nice storm rolls in, you can swap to low light lenses without even taking them off! They also don't fog, and that's been on cold pow days and warmer park days.

    Good google, lens sub par

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I tried this goggle along side the Smith I/O, I/O7, and Oakley Airbrake. My first impressions were that the lens change system is very fast and second to none but the lens quality was inadequate for this price range. After all, quick lens changes and additional features are great but if you can't see well, what's the point. I found the internal reflection of the lens and the poor helmet fit with the Smith Vantage enough to return the goggles. In the end I chose the Oakley Airbrake for it's relatively easy (gloves on) lens change and excellent optics.

    Fogging issues

      I really want to like these goggles. After almost a year of use, here's the pros and cons, which explains the two stars.

      Pros:
      1. Magnets are godsend. Love how easy it is to change the lenses depending on conditions.
      2. Stylish.
      3. Durable, held up nicely after a year of somewhat heavy use.
      4. Wide field of vision without frame obstructing view.
      5. Case is well designed.

      Cons:
      1. Fogging is horrendous. I've used it with and without face mask and have fogged. I was using with the Anon Blitz helmet (purchased on Backcountry as well) and was told by a Burton rep they're not compatible because the lid on helmet blocks airflow so basically hot air gets trapped in goggles and fogs up lens. Bought the Anon Rodan helmet at their recommendation and still fogs. Very frustrating. The fogging starts at top center of lens and then spreads quickly. When you remove the lens, the top part of lens is practically soaked as are the air vents at top of the goggles. This is the reason I gave it one star. It doesn't function and the lens is advertised as anti fogging, which is misleading and not true. If there are small print disclaimers, they were not made up front.
      2. When putting goggles from helmet to face, the lens tends to pop off so you have to put both hands on the lens to prevent lens from popping off. The lens pops off when pulling goggles over the lid of the helmet.

      Maybe I got a bad batch, but basically I'm out $140 for the helmet I didn't need and $275 for the goggles and lens. Very frustrating and not fun to spend money on things that don't work. I can't even sell the goggles used based on principle.

      Magnets are key

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Hands down the best and most convenient way to change you lenses. If you fear the lens will fall off while riding around. Trust me the lens will stay on no matter what you are doing. I have taken some gnarly spills and the lenses never came off. Don't mess around with latches and snaps.

      Forget 2 and 3, it's as easy as 1!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you're looking for a goggle with interchangeable lenses, the buck stops here. These things are extremely comfortable and I have never had an issue with fogging. The Magna-Tech lens change out system is hands down the best and it's not even close. Comes with two lenses, one for high light and one for low light. You can easily switch out the lenses while riding the chair back to the top, don't even need to take the goggles off. Comes with a hard case as well as a bag that can be used to clean the lenses.

      Forget 2 and 3, it's as easy as 1!

      Life Changing?

        For the last few years I've been nurturing my beloved Crowbars from Oakley. They are great goggles, and I still plan to use them sometimes, but after so many panicky powder mornings of frantically swapping between lenses I decided it was time to step into the future.

        The magnetic lens contraption on these M2 goggles is incredible. So easy to swap lenses, not only quickly but without getting any fingerprints on your lens! That was they key feature that sold me on these, but it doesn't hurt that they also look really cool as well and have really sweet lens options.

        I can't comment on longevity yet since I just got these for the upcoming season. Fingers crossed they will last me a while, because based on my living room tests I am loving them. My other qualm was the fairly steep price, but since they come with two nice lenses it's not so bad. Back in the day the second lens was always some cheap throwaway persimmon garbage, so it's cool to see that they now give you two super nice useful lenses (especially when swapping lenses is the most clutch feature of the goggle).

        A step up from my 10-yr old goggles

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        These fit well, with virtually no gap between top of the goggle and my Giro 10 helmet. Smoke lens is great for bluebird days while the second lens (Blue Lagoon) works well in cloudy/light snow conditions. Lens swap out is fast...30 seconds pocket-to-pocket. Grippers really grip and eliminate the "slip off the helmet" move the old gripper-less goggles used to do regularly when moving the goggles up for walking/chair riding. I really like the wall-to-wall spherical lens look. Definitely recommend these, especially at Backcountry's discounted price. Attached photo of a couple of old guys with AnonM2s...!

        Stealth Kit Complete

          I've been eyeing a pair of these ever since they came out and am psyched to have finally found the budget to drop in on a pair of my own. I got them in Smoke/Dark Smoke to complete my stealth kit. Very pleased with the fit, field of view, and how easy it is to switch among lenses.

          annoyed

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I purchased the M2 goggles in February, 2016. A month and a half later the red solex lenses are unusable because of scratches - which makes no sense. I didn't hit anything, or even fall on them. I agree with everyone else on the ease of changing lenses and the clarity. No one else seems to have a comment on the short lens life.

          Easy Lens Swap!

            If you're looking for the easiest lens swap on the market, get the Anon M2 goggles. I know a lot of people who are extremely loyal to Smith and their I/O goggles, but frankly, with the M2 and Giro Contact systems, the I/Os are now way behind the curve for lens swapability. All three off the goggles I just mentioned are great in terms of aesthetics, lens options, optical quality, etc, but what puts the M2 over the top is the ease of lens changing.
            The fact that you can swap a lens in the amount of time it takes you to grab a new one from your jacket pocket is a game changer. You don't even have to take the goggles off your face. You simply pull off one lens (attached by a series of powerful magnets) and drop a new one on. The magnets make a secure fit that doesn't require any alignment on the user's part. The magnets just line themselves up and attract!
            The only downside to these would be if you don't love really big lenses (these are for large faces). And I've heard that if you really fall hard and tomahawk down the mountain, it is possible to lose your lenses. However, I think if you're falling that hard, you probably have other things to worry about.

            Sells itself.

              I don't think I need to sell anyone on these. The interchangeable lenses are the easiest on the market. The lenses themselves, are also good. I have the Gold Chrome lens. While, you can't look straight at the sun without a little squinting, they are a good all around lens, which is what I wanted. These do well in the trees and the bright groomers. I need a lens that lets in some light, or I don't see as well. If it's a really stormy day, though, I will switch to the Blue Lagoon lens that came with the goggles.



              The lens fits my helmet and goggles. I'm 5'8, so not a very petite woman. The silicone on the straps is almost too much, but just almost. It's really nice that they stay put, because these are not cheap. On that note, they come with a durable container to store them in, so you don't have to worry about them all the time.



              They are also pretty dang fog resistant, comfortable and don't leave marks on your face. My only issue is the the curvature of the lens, makes it awkward to ride with in your jacket. No sweat though.

              Sells itself.

              One of the best

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              Hands down one of the best goggles. Lots of peripheral vision, great lens quality, straps fit comfy with or without a helmet, and good looks. Oh wait, and you can swap the lenses in like 0.52 seconds or less with a multitude of options. Plus they come with a nice padded case and extra lenses get their own padded little case. Pro.

              Do these come with a bonus lens and goggle case? I've seen them normally come with them. Thanks!

              I just got my M2's in the mail and they came with a warning about the magnets interfering with avalanche transceivers. Anyone know the distance the magnets on the goggles must be to keep the beacon working properly? Is it going to mess up a search for me if I'm buried? Or mess up my search if I'm looking for someone?
