I've never been someone who could wear goggles when skiing; I sweat too much because I use skiing as a full body workout doing double-black-diamond straight down the fall-line stuff. If you know what I mean, you know what I mean - you will sweat profusely working it. I am also a marathon runner, and will occasionally cycle 20-50 miles.
So no to goggles, but you gotta have eye protection. The problem for me is changing light conditions, especially in the late afternoon as the sun goes down trying to see moguls to pick your line when depth perception is at its worst. If you're with me so far, you probably understand what I mean. I started wearing RP Kerosenes with Racing Red lenses, but RP stopped making them and didn't have support/spare lenses. Moved onto Rydons, and got into the ImpactX photochromic lenses, first clear to black, then clear to red. Both were really good, but still stayed a little too dark in the winter afternoons after the sun went down.
Enter Propulse! I got a pair that came with clear to black photochromic lenses. When RP Outlet had its Labor Day sale last year (lowest prices of year - hint hint), I got a pair of the Photochromic Clear to Purple lenses, and they are absolutely perfect at the end of the day skiing - not too dark after the sun goes down. The comfort, air-flow and anti-fogging of these glasses is also off the charts. These are now my go-to for running , skiing and riding. Thank you RP!
I have four Oakley competition models, however I find myself turning back to the Defender over and over again because the lens is perfect for low light to bright sunlight. Since I start most of my rides at sunrise and continue through the morning I need a flexible performance based sunglass. The Defender delivers and has now for almost two years.
They don't bother to tell you there is a nut you need to order separately in order to fix the glasses. Another $5 shipping charge to go back and order the tiny nut. Then wait some more.
