The Zeal Optics Eclipse Goggle with Polarized Photochromic lens is smarter than you are—it always knows which lens tint is right for the light. Photochromic technology allows the lens to automatically adjust its tint to match the light conditions, and the polarized lens coating takes the bite out of harmful glare. Drop into the park, some powder, or a few slackcountry runs while wearing this wide, comfortable goggle, and never look back.
I took the plunge and purchased these and used them at Mt Baker in late March.
It was snowing most of the time I was there and on day one it was as wet as I have ever been but these goggles didn't fog up and offer the best view I have
experienced in my ski career. I gave them to the others in my group to try
and they all agreed they were outstanding. I wasn't aware of the lens changing density but I could always see perfectly so I am sold on these things.
Very comfortable fit for a regular to smaller face. Forms well to my helmet and holds on tight! Great lens clarity and the transition in given lighting is AWESOME!
The lens is nice, the photo chromatic does work in many varied lighting situations. Scratches very easily and fogs, if that fog freezes hope you brought another pair of goggles.
The frame material is light but almost to light. It does not provide a rigid frame so if you grab the middle with one hand you will pop out the lens almost every time. I may have used and abused the lens but the frame issue has been there since day 1. All and all I would save some money and go with the link the rigid frame is definitely the way to go.
The plastic hinge that holds the strap to the goggle seems to have a quality issue. One side broke as soon as I stretched the band to get ready to try it on. The plastic on that hinge seemed very brittle & flimsy, prone to the breakage that I observed. The hinge on the other side is identical, but seemed a little less brittle. This does not seem to be an isolated incident from a quick search online.
