Alternatively, you could just be careful about scratching the lenses, then buy a new pair when they get scratched up, and still come out ahead.

FWIW my name-brand lenses got all scratched up too, so it may be a case of people looking for something "cheap" on the cheap goggles.

Sounds like you didn't read the reviews because many complained about scratches even though they were "careful."

I have name-brand lenses and mine have not gotten scratched up. It also doesn't have a reflective finish like most of these lenses. If yours are reflective then maybe that sort of finish is just more prone to scratches in general? I should also point out your name-brand lens isn't necessarily representative of all name-brand lenses, but you do bring up a good point about running into the same issue at a higher price.

Why am I looking at this, then? I was interesting in moving from traditional, cylindrical lenses to these spherically-shaped ones in hopes it would have a greater field of view.

I received my pair of these today, and so far I'm pretty impressed. I've been wanting to try these for a while, and couldn't pass up the $15.50 for the Revo Blue version.

I'm comparing them to a well-used pair of Smith I/O goggles with Ignitor Mirror lenses (which I really like). I think the X4 stands up pretty well so far. I'm not noticing much distortion and reflections seem reasonably well controlled. One annoyance with the X4's is that the frames are light blue on the inside, which causes a reflection around the nose when facing the sun. I was able to eliminate that by covering the blue flange around inside of the nose with a piece of black electrical tape, so it's not a big deal. The darker frames won't have that problem.

They are a bit bigger width-wise than the I/Os and a little stiffer, so they don't seal as well on the sides. It doesn't seem like the kind of thing I'll notice on the slopes, though. Stylistically, the X4s are more similar than different compared to the I/O, though the larger lens coverage and blue color does make more of a statement. I kind of like it, and it pairs well with my bright green helmet. Field of view is very similar between the X4 and I/O; excellent on both. I slightly prefer the warmer tint of the I/Os compared to the slightly greener amber of the Revo Blue X4s, but they are pretty similar. I probably won't notice the difference when not doing an A/B comparison. The Revo Blue does have a lower VLT than the Ignitor Mirror, so they'll be a little better for sunny days but probably not quite as good for flat light.

I spend a lot of time skiing in the trees, and my I/Os have a fair amount of scratches from stray brush/branches even though I baby them otherwise. If the X4s perform well skiing, then the lower cost will be much appreciated for more frequent replacement. I plan to ski with them next weekend and plan to write detailed review on Amazon afterward.

The magnetic lens system seems brilliant, but the goggles are so cheap that it makes sense to buy additional lenses with the frames. I suppose carrying around just the spare lenses could save space, though.

I'ts certainly possible that folks who are very particular about optics might feel that the Smith lenses are worth the extra cash, but it seems likely that for me these will offer a better value than spending $60-$80 for a replacement lens for my Smith I/Os. Time will tell.

This is a great deal for anyone who doesn't go skiing often.

Just be forewarned there are a lot of reviews complaining about how easily the lenses scratch. I still gave a TU as it's probably still worth it for someone who doesn't do much more than one day out of the year, but those who go more regularly should probably consider looking for something more durable.

Thanks for this, I was on the hunt for the snowboarding helmet and this may as well be it. Already purchased the googles (those seem to to on sale for about the same amount every so often).

If I was in the market for a helmet, I wouldnt skimp out on buying a cheap one.

I havnt noticed any special or extra scratching on my name brand lens. This is true on both the reflective one and the non-reflective lens. But I've taken care not to wipe or even touch the lens once its gotten wet.

I changed because I liked the magnetic quick change lens feature. Me not spending 15 mins changing a lens out was worth the premium price. I do have a larger field of view but the goggle is also huge.

I have the black pair from the deal last week. Maybe it's just me, but the amount of viewing angle for being spherical seems pretty damn small to me. Definitely nothing better than regular goggles. Has anyone else had a similar (or different) experience?

I've bought 5+ pair for my family. I bought non reflective lenses for the kids and they seem less susceptible to scratches. Love the huge field of view. After 4-5 uses still looking good. Dropped mine on road and they got scratched, but I got lucky that it was only very small and I don't notice it. I would buy more of the non reflective were this cheap.

I didn't buy these but bought some other cheapie goggles. Vision was night and day.
My Oakley's were sooo scratched up, couldn't believe how clear the cheap ones appeared.

I must say i'm in the same boat. Never will I buy an expensive pair ever again. Cheaper to just buy these and throw away.
