Nice on great report.

Reading your mention of the clarity of shapes once lost ....

I used my goggles for the first time in anger this last week and was suitably impressed by the clarity they provided of the white stuff plus of course the obvious protection from the wind/snow, such that I can see myself wearing them more often !

I guess a pair of sunglasses has the same effect. Goggles have a orangy brown tint, which I must confess was worried might be too dark but their fine. Bloc I think.
