Lens fog is a performance killer, so we developed a three-tiered defense. First, we devised surge ports to control airflow. Second, we formulated F-3 Series anti-fog treatment. Third, we engineered a dual lens design to reduce fog with a thermal barrier of trapped air. Then we took all that technology and juiced it with the precision of High Definition Optics® (HDO®), topping it off with a wish list from the pros: 100% UV filtering, impact protection that meets ANSI Z87.1 / ASTM F659 standards, durable urethane that stays flexible, and comfortable triple-layer polar fleece foam with moisture wicking. About the only thing you don’t get with the A Frame® goggles is fog.

I've accumulated a number of pair since this goggle was introduced years ago. Swapping lenses is cumbersome and you just don't know what the light will be on the hill all the time. Keep a few pair stashed in the car or in your luggage and you can make a game time decision on the fly. I recommend the Polarized lens only at high altitude on bluebird days. The yellow lens is still my favorite for flat light and storm riding. Careful when cleaning the inside of the lens in particular. Best to let them air dry. This goggle fits really well under a POC helmet and the strap is long enough not to squeeze your face. If someone's having a bad day on the mountain, its probably because their goggles are too tight, no joke. After a few seasons wearing sunblock, sweating, and getting after it, the foam can get kind of gross. Then its time for a new pair and keep the lens as a back up.
I wanted a new pair of goggles for snowmobiling last winter, and found these. I had a pair of dirt goggles I had used in the past, but wanted one's for snow. So far, these have been an A+. I got persimmon lenses with them and even at night, I can see clearly. They have stayed fog-free and offer great clarity. I highly recommend oakley products to anyone who asks, i'm a huge fan. I love the rubber liners they put on the inside of the bands, so that they goggles don't slide on your helmet...even in rough terrain and in any weather conditions.
I can't say that I've ever worn a more perfect fitting pair of goggles! Never had any fogging issues either. Swapping lenses may be a little tricky at first, but once you've nailed the method, it takes less than 30 seconds.
Sure, you don't get as great of peripheral vision as other frameless goggles, but I've never had any complaints(just stay in control and it shouldn't be a problem anyways...)
The lenses are also top notch. I've had some for over 3 years and they still look great.
The a-frame has always been the main stay of Oakley's line and my day sack.
Should be the first goggle to try when finally switching out of those gawd-awful low end cheapies.
And shall be benchmark for all following goggle purchases for years to come.
Hard to fog, even easier to vent.
Seemingly one-size fits all.
Decent field of vision for the size.
A wide selection of snap-in lenses.
The only complaint I would have about these are bad luck.
I've destroyed a couple of these bad boys.
I know there are a lot of different optic companies out there. I just don't know why Oakley's products just seem to stand above the rest? I have tried Scott, Smith, Dragon, Uvex. Etc etc.. Oakley goggles are the way to go.
I have had these A frames for skiing and boarding for years. The style and size just keeps being the one that doesn't change in their line up. Truly a classic.
i love these goggles; i own three pair. they're the only goggles that fit my small nose. i got the half tone red and have gotten compliments on their look. they're more gray than white, but i like that. caveat: remember not to wipe the lens, only blot. stuffing the bag or tissues in them when wet helps dry them out.
I have had a pair of these goggles for over three seasons now and still are working flawless. I've bought different lenses based on lighting and the activities I'm doing since I use them both for snowmobiling and skiing.
You can't go wrong with these ones.
These goggles have lasted a long time and I still use them occasionally but I have become a fan of larger lense goggle. These work great but I personally like a bigger lense with a slightly better range of view.
Just killed off the lens and frame from my first pair of A frame's. They lasted many seasons and crashes and harsh conditions. I bought another pair because I liked these so much. Great fit for a helmet wearer also.
These, like all the A-frames, fit great, with or without a helmet. I have these with the yellow iridium lenses which are awesome for low light days on the mountain (also have amber, and the blackout polarized).
