  • Easily scratched lenses

Summary

The Smith I/O Mag Snow Goggle is a great high performance goggle. The I/O goggles have been around for many years and a proven solid performer. The new magnetic lens swap system makes them even better. Their anti-fog performance is the best out there. There is a huge variety of spare lens available. You can get a photochromic lens and there is a variety of polarized lens and mirrored lenses too.

These goggles have great venting that keeps the moisture out. When combined with a Smith helmet with compatible vents it works even better. They will stay fog gree on the most humid April lower mountain day at Whistler. You may not be able to see because of the fog, but your goggles will be clear.

The Smith I/O Mag XL is also one of the best OTG ski goggles out there as well. If you want great anti fog technology to wear over your prescription eyewear, these are the very best choice out there. With a prescription insert they become as close as you can get to a set of prescription ski goggles.

The Smith I/O Mag Snow Goggles are one of the best ski goggles available today. I personally have been using I/O’s for years. They have been the best goggles I’ve ever owned for anti-fog, clarity and field of view. They are among the best ski goggles in almost every category.

What we liked:

  • High definition Ultra toric lens
  • Magnetic quick change lens system
  • Includes a second lens

What we didn’t like:

  • No photochromic lens is available

Summary

The OutdoorMaster Ultra XL Snow Goggles are new this year and could be the best bang for the buck in ski goggles out there. The OutdoorMaster Pro goggles have been a great value since their introduction and packed way more features into a $50 ski goggle than anyone thought possible. The Vision builds on it and adds great performing lenses with as much tech slammed into them as Oakley, Smith, or Anon.

These goggles have a toric shaped lens that combines the best of spherical and cylindrical lenses. They use OutdoorMaster’s Ultra lens Color-Optimization Technology. This filters out blue light allowing you to see the terrain better than with your naked eye. Luminous Refractive Pressed lenses allow for better refraction and focus. What this means is that you have a great field of view, focus, and terrain definition as you get from Oakley or Smith at 1/2 to 1/3 price.

These goggles retain the OutdoorMaster magnetic lens swap system. The goggles come with 2 lenses and a hard case for the spare lens.

The lenses have an anti-fog coating on the inside, double pane lense, and improved ventilation to keep fog away.

The OutdoorMaster Ultra XL goggles have everything you would expect from anti-fog ski goggles combined with great toric lenses at a low price. This makes them my best value pick for anti-fog ski goggles.

Comfort8.5

What we liked:

  • High clarity of Prizm lens
  • Fleece lining makes them comfortable
  • Great ventilation and anti-fog performance

What we didn’t like:

  • Goggle nose piece is large. Some users can see air gaps above nose
  • Easily scratched lenses
  • Only includes one lens

Summary

The Oakley Flight Deck Snow Goggles are a great high performance ski goggle. These goggles have a great field of view, ventilation, and comfort. The lenses are easily swapped.

Their ventilation and dual pane lenses combined with an anti fog coated inner lens are good at resisting fog. They only give up a little to the best in class anti fog goggles the Smith I/O.

The Oakley Prizm technology helps refract light with higher definition. You can see more definition of the snow and surroundings with a prizm lens than with the naked eye. The field of view with the Airbrake design is one of the best out there. Although you can see the frame around your nose while wearing them. This is especially noticeable with white frames.

These goggles really shine in the comfort department. The 3 layer foam combined with fleece lining makes them feel good even on a long ski day.

The great anti-fog performance and comfort makes this our top pick for best anti-fog ski and snowboard goggle.

Who are these for?

Someone who wants the best possible lens clarity and anti fog performance from a stylish brand and is willing to pay for it.


4 – Glade Optics Fathom Goggle

Glade Magflight product image

Specifications

  • Sizing: Large
  • Dual Pane Lenses: Yes
  • Ventilation: Yes
  • Lens Swapping: Yes
  • OTG: Yes

What we liked:

  • Largest field of view of any goggle I have tried
  • Good anti-fog performance
  • Cool mirrored flat lens look
  • Includes low light lens

What we didn’t like:

  • No storage bag or case for extra lens included
  • Only works OTG with smaller glasses

Summary

The Glade Optics Fathom Goggles have a huge field of view and great anti-fog performance. Glade Optics is a Colorado company run by a really passionate ski bum Curt Nichols. He saw that most ski goggles are made by large corporations that don’t really care about skiing. He knew there must be a better way. Glade Optics makes fantastic goggles that look really good.

The Fathom is a large fit cylindrical lens goggle. It has an easy swap magnetic lens system. You can change lenses in seconds with the goggles on your face. They include a second low light lens to make the goggles good for all light conditions. There is also a Fathom+ version with toric photochromic lenses.

The lens has a nice mirror finish that looks really good out on the mountain. The clarity is good with very little distortion. The low light lens provides good visibility and terrain definition in flat light.

Field of view and peripheral vision is excellent. They have the best field of view of any large fit goggle I have tried including the Anon M4 Toric.

They are very comfortable to wear. They have triple layer foam and a flexible TPU frame. The foam has a firm feel to it. They have a nice aggressive face hugging feal.

The goggles have plenty of ventilation and a very effective anti-fog coating. We had no fogging issues with it on a really challenging humid foggy flat light ski day.

Overall these goggles have great performance and looks. I would wear them on any flat light, sunny, or humid foggy day.

Review

We reviewed the Glade Optics MagFlight goggles in 2022. These have been replaced by the Fathom. They are a similar design with similar performance. They didn’t have the Fathom+ toric photochromic lens. See our detailed review of the Glade Optics MagFlight ski goggles to learn more.

Someone looking for a large fit goggle with great field of view and anti fog performance

What we liked:

  • High definition Perceive toric lenses
  • MFI integrated face mask
  • Easy to swap magentic lens system

What we didn’t like:

  • High cost
  • No available photochromic lens

Summary

The ANON M4 Toric Lens Ski Goggles are possibly the best ski goggle available right now. They have first rate lenses, an easy to swap magnetic lens change system, and an integrated magnetic face mask. Anon comes from legendary snowboard company Burton but don’t let that turn you away. These goggles have everything that Smith and Oakley can offer and more.

The Anon Perceive lens technology refracts color better than the naked eye. The toric lens shape combines the best features of spherical and cylindrical lenses giving you great field of view and minimal distortion. This makes them perfect for the most overcase flat light day. The goggles include 2 lenses as well as a hard lens case for storing the spare lens. The lenses use the MAGNA-TECH lens swapping system that lets you quickly change lenses in seconds anywhere without taking your goggles off your face.

The ANON M4 goggles have their MFI (Magnetic Face Mask Integration) allowing your face mask to attach to the bottom of the goggle frame. This is great for keeping your mask up without trying to pinch it between your goggle frame and face. They have a variety of available facemask options in addition to the mask that comes with the goggles.

They have double pane lenses with anti-fog coating on the inside. The goggles have excellent venting that will keep the fog out. When combined with a helmet with anti-fog vents they work even better.

All these features make this one of the best ski goggles available today. This makes them my top pick for best anti fog ski goggles and almost any other condition.

What we liked:

  • Variety of styles and lens tints
  • Magnetic quick change lens system
  • Variety of colors and lenses

What we didn’t like:

  • Lenses not as good as Oakley Prizm or Smith Chromapop

Summary

The OutdoorMaster Pro XM Frameless Skiing Goggles are great full feature cheap ski goggles. These goggles feature a magnetic swapping spherical lens. They are also OTG compatible for those of us who wear prescription glasses. Only one lens is included with the goggles if you buy them from Amazon. A 2 lens combo is available directly from OutdoorMaster. Other lenses are also available separately.

These goggles have dual pane lenses with anti-fog coating and ventilation. Their anti-fog performance is okay but not as good as other higher cost ski goggles. The magnets attaching the lens hold it pretty good. We had no problems with lenses falling out during falls or off the chairlift. The spherical lens has high clarity and low distortion. It doesn’t have the great color refraction that the Chromopop/SONAR/Vivid/PRIZM have. For the cost, you still get good performance on foggy flat light days.

These goggles frames can change a little bit year to year. The extra lenses now do not fit goggles from a couple years ago. If you want a selection of lens options for different light conditions it we recommend buying them soon after buying the goggles to ensure compatibility.

These goggles are an excellent value. They have most of the performance of more expensive goggles at a much lower price. This makes it our top pick for best under $50 anti fog ski goggles.

Full Review

Someone who wants excellent value with good performing, really easy to swap lenses.

  • OTG: Yes

What we liked:

  • Low cost

Summary

The ZIONOR X Ski and Snowboard Goggles are one of the best low cost ski goggle options out there. These goggles have anti-fog coating, good ventilation, swappable spherical lenses. They are a fraction of the cost of a pair of Anon M4 Toric goggles.

The anti-fog performance of these goggles worked well. They have solid ventilation to keep the moisture out. Their anti-fog coating and dual pane lenses were effective.
