Seems like a good deal. For a beginner skier, will the quality difference be noticeable or would something for $30-$40 do for now? Thx
The only thing that matters in a lense is that it DOESN"T FOGGGGGG. I've been snowboarding for over 10 years and I have to say, this is the only thing I care about.

The great thing about SPY goggles is their design, They have these "unique" vents that flush air through the lense so it doesn't fog. I have noticed this with even their cheapest models, which is why I recommend SPY to everyone.

This is not over the glasses. I suggest u get inserts rather then over the glasses as it doesn’t fit comfortably. Plus u can use it on any goggle or even VR.

I used This one, https://www.gogglesnmore.com/universal- ... i-goggles/

For otc, I think Oakley flight deck is the best but it is 150-200 and it hardly goes on sale. Oakley line miner is very good too.

Great deal OP. There were some in stock locally for me. I have a big head (63cm) and the fit was ok. Tried with a helmet and I'm hoping they'll stretch a little as I'm at the max of the strap.

Does this spy not fog at -20 to -30? That's when the fog then freezes and you cant wipe it off. Eventually cant see. Kind of annoying (dangerous.)

+1 for preferring a goggle that prevents fogging. If you put them on, Try and keep them on the entire time. Taking them (goggles in general) on and off from run to run seems to cause fogs to happen more frequently.

Thanks OP. Bought a pair. I have some nice Smith goggles but thought these would be nice in low light conditions and instead of buying a different lense might as well just buy a different set of goggles.
Want to type googles instead of goggles.

Wrong goggles for low light; as I indicated earlier in the thread, they are fur bright sunny conditions. Someone else posted the VLTs for Spy lens as well which supports what I said. These goggles have ~13% visible light transmission (vlt), so they let very little light through and are meant for full sun conditions.

Thanks, should have read your post before. I see that now...

Got this at Sports Experts in Montreal for 80$.

Looks like a good deal, similar quality is often twice the price. They are a huge upgrade over my previous Spy googles, which are probably around 10 years old

Anyone knows where we can get a good deal on replacement lens? I'd like to get a 2nd lens for low light conditions

Did anyone else buy this? According to the website this comes with a replacement lens. The one I bought didn't have one in the box
but the packaging didn't list an extra lens either.
Haven't received mine yet, but I was also counting on receiving extra lens. Given that apparently it doesn't and that the lens provided are for full light conditions only, I think I'll end up returning them once they arrive.

I tried them at day time under cloudy and snowing conditions and could see just fine.
That is good to hear ! Have you tried them on at night?

Great post. I love my Spy Googles and would definitely buy a low light pair (which have been pointed out, that these are not), as I think mine are too old to get replacement lenses.
