Ski goggles to wear over glasses

Ski goggles to wear over glasses

Postby alanm » Tue Dec 29, 2009 12:48 am

I've been hunting around the usual places Tiso/Blacks/Amazon for some category 3 or 4 ski goggles or sunglasses for hillwalking in snow. Has anyone who wears glasses any experience of wearing goggles/glasses in the snow? Not quite sure even if its possible to fit goggles over glasses? I imagine trying to keep goggles and glasses demisted is going to be a struggle. Should I be looking at prescription sunglasses with some sort of attachment round the side? or does everyone just go with contacts?

No, but I'm all agog as Richard has the same problems as you with the misting glasses etc. Maybe he'd come out in winter more if he could see where I was dragging him! :lol:

Hi Alanm

I went out a short time ago and got Daily Disposable contact lenses to get round this as i was sick of
the fogging and spattering with rain making progress miserable.£30 for 30 day supply of lenses that i will wear
maybe twice a week,so at least 15 weeks worth,and what a difference.

Just got nice ski goggles from Aldi today for £8.99 and sunglasses with 3 sets of lenses for £4.99,maybe get trying
them out on my trip tomorrow.
