Review: Bolle Krait [ Unisex Ski Snowboard Snow Goggles ]

Review: Bolle Krait [ Unisex Ski Snowboard Snow Goggles ]
Retail: $109.99, but MBstores.com is currently offering these goggles for as low as $28.95. (Offer exprires soon)

Product Decription:
Want the same eye protection used by the best skiers and snowboarders in the world? During the 1998 Winter Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan, 98 athletes from twelve countries wore Bollé goggles in competition.

The Krait has a double lens design that creates a thermal barrier by incorporating a Gore All-Weather Vent™ to equalize the air pressure between the lenses without allowing any moisture inside, thus reducing distortion and fogging at any altitude. Add to that a vermillion tint and polarization to reduce glare while providing superior visual acuity and greater depth perception. 100%UV protection.

Summary:
A great looking low-cost goggle with all the features of the higher priced ones, with a little more to offer.
I was stoked to find a pair that I can use at night as well as day, the color of the lense helps alot. I love the look of them, for the price, you usually get crappy looking goggles...... it's all about style too hey?

Strengths:
Good lense and aesthetics. CLip off strap is helpful too.

Weaknesses:
Mine fog up! I do alot of hiking and they fog up easily, although I can't really see any goggle not fog up with that kind of heat generated. Also a bit tight around me helmet.

Summary:
For the price and the performance, these goggles can't be beat. If you are in the market for new goggles, check these out. If they fit your helmet, you've got a awesome pair of goggles.

Strengths:
For the price these are the best goggles I have ever tried. They won't fog! For skiing, snowmobiling, or any other winter sports they can't be beat. Better than the arnettes I have tried that cost almost three times as much. Great deal! They blow my old Oakleys out of the water in term of fog prevention, and the clip strap makes taking and putting them on with helmets a breeze.

Weaknesses:
If any, a little problem fitting certain helmets.

Summary:
Like I said before, for $50 this is the best goggle out there for the money. I have no complaints with these whatsoever.

Strengths:
#1 = They don't fog. Period. I even tried to fog them up by breathing on them and they still stayed clear. For a midsize goggle these have an excellent field of vision. I had no problems with peripheral or vertical vision. The style is pretty cool, but not quite like the Oakleys, Dragons or Spys. For $30, these goggles have to be the best buy out there. They're comfortable, stylish and perform great.

Weaknesses:
The first time I wore them the lens was scratched. But hey... trees are never that kind to goggles. OOPS!

Summary:
Overall, I'd say that these are good goggles for the price. The quality is as good or better than any brand out there.
However, if you wear a helmet, get something else, unless you want a big cut across the bridge your nose if you do a header. These goggles just don't quite work with a helmet, and I've tried them with several.

Strengths:
Decent looking, Fog-free, Good visibilty

Weaknesses:
Weird pink-red tint (vermillion?)
Don't fit worth a damn if you wear a helmet

Strengths:
Seems to be pretty durable goggles. These are the first ones I've owned and I still use them. They look cool and they fit snug.

Weaknesses:
I don't really like the red-orangish tinge of the lens, but you get used to them.

Summary:
I think for $60 these are hellafied goggles. They have all the same features as the expensive oakley, arnette, spy... goggles, but they are nearly half the price of some of those. Also the quick release buckle is easily customizable to you head and/or helmet. I'll look at another pair of these or similar ones when I buy a new pair. For me they are just great.

Strengths:
This goggle has great venting and other antifog features. Also at $60 you can't complain about the price if you have ever purchased goggles before.

Weaknesses:
Lack of representation in my area. I have to buy additional lenses of the internet.
