Summary:
I purchased these goggles out of desperation, I was on my way out to ride for the day, and I couldn't find my old pair. These are by far the sickest goggles I've worn! The lense never fogged except when I walked out of the chalet, but halfway down the first run they cleared right up again. The rose colored lense is excellent for detail both during the day, and at night. I think goggles are a little bit of a ripoff pricewise, but compared to a brand like Oakley, these are well worth what I paid!

Strengths:
No fog at all! Double lense is where it's at. also the strap prtoection on the sides is nice.

Weaknesses:
None come to mind.

Summary:
I was up skiing this past week and left my sunglasses in the car in the parking lot. My friend had two goggles with him and asked if I would like to borrow a pair. He allowed me the use of the Arnette "The Goggles" in white with the orange tint lenses. I IMEDIATELY feel in love with these goggles. I have never found a pair to would not fog up under wet snow conditons or the like. In addition, the orange tint of the lenses were perfect in getting better detail in the snow for mogules, ruts, etc. The adjustable band kept it snug to my head without any pressure points. Needless to say, I commented to him enough about the quality of the goggles that he sold them to me for $40.00
He just purchased them about 2 ski trips before that so they were a great bargin. I highly recommend this brand and model.

Strengths:
Lenses never fog. The fit was perfect and snug without pressure points around the face. Excellent ventilation characteristics.

Weaknesses:
Lose of lower field of vision...took getting used to but once adjusted the goggles were great.

Never used goggles because I could never find a pair that would not fog up...Until now!

Summary:
I'm very pleased with these goggles, as they've really performed well in many conditions. I've used them in cold, mid-winter blizzards, warmer, wet snowstorms, and springtime temperatures, and never once fogged up. What's more, the lenses resist scratching, the frames are durable, and have enough flex to not injure your face in a major eat-it. The straps a slightly difficult to adjust, but this is a minor thing. These are hands down the best goggles I've ever owned!

Strengths:
Does not fog up, durable lenses and frames

Weaknesses:

Summary:
I'm a skier so to the snowboarder who doesn't want me to wear these goggle, piss off!! You should realize by now that it doesn't matter what we're on we're all just snow riders. This whole fued between boarders and skiers is ridiculous now that they've come together enough with new school skiing that we can all ride the same terrain, including parks and pipes.

Anyway, enough ranting on towards narrow minded people. The guy who said they fogged up probably had a cheaper version, I've seen pairs for $25 that look the same but are just a knockoff. If not he may have had the lense in wrong, I switched lenses one day and didn't quite get it in right and it fogged terribly, other than that I've had no fogging problems.

Strengths:
Great goggle, never had any problems, no fogging, love the interchangeable lenses

Weaknesses:
band got stretched out pretty bad when I started wearing a helmet

Summary:
See "weaknesses".

Decent design, and I like the fact I can change a lense in less than a minute. But they fog like mad, scratch, and are just pretty cheap. They need some better ventilation, since they feel like you're wearing a diving mask when you've got them on.

Strengths:
They look alright, and the interchangable lenses are a good idea. They were cheap!

Weaknesses:
Fog like nothing I've ever seen. Scratch easily too. I'm not sure where these guys that say "no fog" ride, but they fog! And they always fog when you really can't have it. Like when it's dumping, and you can't see 3 feet in front of your face. Once they start fogging, they don't stop, and there isn't anything you can do to clean it out.
