The Curated Take
I love these goggles! I would say I have a smaller face, on average, but prefer the larger fit, as it fits perfectly with my Smith Maze helmet and provides a bit more peripheral vision. It came with high-light and low-light lenses that are easily interchangeable and can be purchased separately in case one gets scratched, lost (oops), etc. I also purchased it for night skiing and very stormy days that provide extra visibility. The only downsides to the goggles are the fact that they will fog on stormier/colder days, especially if you fall in the snow, and aren't the easiest to change in and out just to warm them up on a chairlift ride. If you're worried about this, I'd go with the Squad Mag goggles, but the Squad and Squad XL are certainly cheaper, but very practical goggles nonetheless!
- Fits profile of Smith Maze helmet like a glove
