4.7 out of 5
good for big guys with helmets
November 10, 2010
fit on my face even with helmet! got on sale last year, good deal! Even fit over my kids helmets and still stay close to their face for a good tight fit.
Bang for your buck!
November 04, 2012
This is probably one if not the best bang for your buck goggles out there. Oakley has always been a reputable company when it comes to eyewear. Their snow goggles have the same quality as the rest of their product. This goggle will fit really snug and comfortably on your face. I use this goggle with a RED Force Helmet and they are perfectly compatible. No problem with that whatsoever. The quality of this thing is flexible yet durable. High grade plastic material is used for these goggles and you can tell the difference between Oakleys and other brands. This particular goggle is stylish and practical. Great goggle for beginner to professional level snowboarders!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
oakley a frame goggles
March 07, 2006
These are excellent goggles. Ive used a bolle set before and I ran into fogging problems. Ive used these a couple of times already and they are very comfortable with superb lenses and Ive had no issues with fogging. I have a medium to large size head and they fit fine.
Oustanding value for the price.
April 01, 2009
I've been riding 11 years and these are the best goggles I've owned. They look great, almost never fog, and are super comfortable to wear. Only nitpick is that if you have a large helmet, like me, the straps may be a little short and might pull at an awkward angle. This is easily resolved witht the addition of a helmet adapter kit from Oakley. This is may second pair of A Frames and my original ones are still going strong after 4 seasons. Just wanted a different lens for low light conditions.
March 12, 2013
This is my second pair of Oakley's A Frame. They are not too large on my face. The antifog works well. There is adequate amount of vents that also help prevent fogging. I bought the high intensity yellow lense. THis lense is ideal for grey days with flat light. On blue birds days, you will need another lense. My first pair, the frame lasted 8 years and it had 2 lense replacements and I ski about 25 days a year.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: cannot clean the inside lense due to the antifog
Best goggles owned so far
February 18, 2007
Before I bought these goggles, I was stuck using Scott goggles. The day I tried these goggles out on the mountain, I was blown away by the clarity of these goggles. Not only were they crystal clear, they did not fog up at all. They are also extremely comfortable. I highly recommend these goggles.
Great goggle, but try before you buy
February 06, 2007
This is a great goggle. Oakley lives up to their reputation with these. however, take some time in selecting a lens tint, and be sure to measure you helmet circumference. I wear a Red Hi-fi helmet size Medium and they fit just fine but were a little loose in places so i got the helmet adapter. After i installed the helmet adapter they were nice and tight everywhere but the plastic touched my nose i little too easily. This was not much of a problem because I got the H.I. Yellow lens, which is for storm and night skiing, and when it is stormy I always wear a bandanna. I am thinking of getting a darker replacement lens just for those sunny days...
February 18, 2006
Oakley sells the best. I especially like this goggle because it is for smaller faces. The fleece lining is great and keeps the oil in your face from attacking the foam. The only complaints I have is I wish the strap was longer to go over a helmet better and the foam could have been glued on better (not quite aligned with the frame).
February 08, 2011
This is my second pair of the a frames with g30 lenses. They provide great contrast in a wide variety of conditions, although sometimes on a very bright day, a slightly darker lens might be in order. The rest of the time they are perfect for my needs though. I also wear glasses, but have no problem wearing this goggle over them. A great overall product. Thanks Altrec for a great price too!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
A Frame Oakley Goggles
January 31, 2011
Great pair of goggles. Just took them out to Tahoe and they worked perfectly. They were a little pricey, but worth the extra cost. They were comfortable, no fogging issues and I would highly recommend them.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Cost
February 01, 2010
Great goggles!!! couldn't be happier with them or how fast they got here. Worth every penny i spent on them.
Great item and great transaction!
February 27, 2010
I am a first timer to Altrec and I have to say that I have been very pleased with my order. I feel like I got a really good deal on a really great product. I have a big head but a small face and these goggles fit great!
comfy, visuly apealing, and mostly fog free!
March 25, 2006
The "ram air ports" are great at keeping your goggs fog free when your flying down the mountian but if you like to hike or build like i do these things fog fast! were talking a couple minutes easy! but i guess you dont need em as much then so put em on your head and they will be great. other than that you dont need the helmet strap so dont buy it.
March 31, 2009
I have never ever had ANY problems with Oakley gear, but for some reason these goggles would not quit fogging up! I bought a pair of Oakley O Frames at the same time for my husband, and had absolutely no problem with them. So, it must just be a faulty pair?!? Don't detour from Oakley, they are USUALLY very dependable, just maybe not this particular pair or style
Good goggles, but too big for me
May 22, 2009
They are very nice goggles, vent well and nice and soft on the face. They are just a little too big for me, so I traded them in for a smaller frame.
Not what they once were...
April 17, 2011
While I find these goggles to still be the best out there, they are not the same A frames I have been using for almost 10 years now. The second time I used them this season, fog developed between the lenses, revealing smudge marks (a manufacturing error????) and would NOT go away. I considered exchanging them, but the snow was falling and quickly the whole season flew by. I found that with careful handling and drying, I could, for the most part, prevent this, but it's a real bummer to have to do this. My three older lenses have never had any problems with fogging...EVER. I hope this problem is exclusive to my specific pair, but I'm scared that it may really be a downgrade in the Oakley quality I've become accustomed to.....Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance, Cons: Poor quality
Oakley Snow Goggles
April 17, 2006
This is an excellent goggles for snowboarding in the heavy snowy and windy condition. The lens is very clear.
goog function, very comfortable,
March 08, 2006
these goggles are awesome except the matte color looks kinda cheap. the lenses are great quality, I would suggest choosing non matte colors. also seems like this is not a preferred goggle choice of the "real snowboarders" but a common choice for beginners as I saw only tourist wearing these on the slopes.
December 20, 2010
So, the AFrame at first seems like normal Oakley tech, but it feels cheaper than most of their products. The face foam is glued on with excessive glue spilling out, which is quite sticky. While the foam is comfortable, it feels cheap, and I anticipate that it will not 'hold up' to normal wear and tear. What you can't discern from the photo is how much of a cyclops look these googles have. It really does make you look like a one eyed rider. That might be your style, so just be aware. Other than that, the lens is what you would expect from Oakley, so no complaints there. A decent goggle for the money, but I expect more from Oakley.Pros: Performance, snug fit, nice optics, Cons: excessive glue, cheap feel
BEST GOGGLES EVER!
November 04, 2008
I've had the same A frames for 5 years and they're still not out of style! Im only getting new ones because i scratched the lenses but these are absolutely the best goggles out there!
Great for tiny faces.
March 14, 2010
My 6 yr. old started ski racing and needed a more serious goggle. These were perfect. Not to expensive and great quality. The funky color is also better in person. Great goggles.
January 26, 2010
Great all around goggles. Look more stylish than any other goggle I've worn and fit perfectly. Comfortable and not bulky. Vision is good with these, but peripheral is cut down slightly since these goggles are a little smaller. Haven't had any fog problems and persimmon lens is a good overall choice.
November 02, 2009
These are awesome goggles, I had one of those and used it for 5 years. Now I got an additional one for my girlfriend! They work very well, are warm, and you can see even in bad conditions! The best deal for the price and totally worth it!
Great Googles for Snowboarders
January 06, 2013
Fits perfect for on people with smaller faces and the lenses are the best of any goggles that I've owned. Does not fog up and has a very comfortable feel/fit.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
Great product, especially for low light
March 05, 2007
I am very happy with this goggle. It is very good for low light skiing or snowboarding. If you intend to use this item for all weather types please look for the persimmon lenses, which are more allround. The only remark I can think of is that it's a pretty "big" goggle. The Wisdom is much smaller.
March 04, 2006
the last pair of goggles I owned were Oakleys from the 90's. These are awsome; quantum leaps better! The curved lens gives super clear straight ahead and peripheral vision, as if they were your own eyes! Never foggy and very comfy.
March 07, 2011
Definitely a great pair of goggles. I've gotten quite a bit of use out of them this season and they haven't fogged up once and visibility is great. I got the Pink Iridium lens which works great if you don't want to always switch out your lens for cloudy and sunny days.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever
March 23, 2010
I got the A Frames with the HI-Yellow lens, and they are completely bomber on flat-light days. While others are struggling to make out the moguls, "I can see clearly now, the rain is gone." Buy 'em. You gotta see where you're going in the flat light.
February 08, 2009
Strap not long enough for helmet (Medium sized Giro G10) use. Needed to buy separate helmet strap. Seems Oakley should size their regular straps to accommodate helmet use.
December 27, 2005
These goggles are really nice. They fit my face! The persimmon color cuts the glare nicely. I'm glad I made the right choice for my first snow goggles.
Big Frame for Smaller Face
June 22, 2010
The performance level of these goggles is superb. They hardly ever fog up and have great peripheral vision capability. The only downside is that as a smaller girl the frame is rather large on my face.
November 02, 2009
This is one of the best goggles I ever had. I do ski hiking in the Alps and this one should always be with you ;) I can highly recommend it to everyone who is looking for an ultimate snow experience!
best goggles hands down
October 30, 2012
the overall quality and construction of material is superb. goggle fitment is precise and comfortable over my face. the polarized lens helps those sunny days, and for some odd reason actually enhances my visuals (shocking!). the rubberized strap is also a nice addition oakley has taken, eliminating for the potential of your goggle slipping during your intense ride down the slopes! oh and it also fits nicely over any helmet. great goggle, and great price offered by altrec.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
January 01, 2013
The goggles are very high quality and look very cool. The only potential downside is that they are clearly made for use with hats and not helmets so it can leave a gap between goggle and helmet.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Wears quickly
love the looks of it
November 11, 2008
these goggles worked the best for me this pair was my first pair of a-frames i had three other pairs of crowbars but i liked these better
Totally worth the cash- a steal for what you get.
February 17, 2009
I have had these goggle for like 5 years.... they are still going strong and didn't fog when everyone else's did (at least not until a very soggy trip to Whistler- but a smear of "cat crap" cleared that right up!). I can see EXTREMELY well in most conditions with the persimmon lenses, but have some trouble at high noon time, so I'm upgrading to the HI persimmon lenses, and keeping the original frames (still stylin'). Changing the lenses out is a bit tricky from my understanding These are quality classics... you can't go wrong
January 07, 2010
I love these goggles so much I've bought three different color frames and five lenses. I use them for everything from skiing and to mountain climbing. The lenses are easy to swap out, the strap is easy to adjust even with gloves on. Buy them -- you can't go wrong.
November 07, 2012
This Goggle is very beautiful.Oakley Goggle has always been my favorite.Black lenses. Filtered sun .. very good to use without any polarizing.Almost feel the front of the eye glass..Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value
December 17, 2012
I bought these for snowboarding and they work great. They are very comfortable and you can't go wrong with Oakley quality. Plus the sale that Altrec made this purchase a bargain!Pros: Build quality, Great value
February 21, 2011
Just used for ski trip and they are perfect. Great fit and very good glasses. H I got them in kiwi color and maybe not the most cool, but they work perfect in cloudy weather.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost
Very good product
May 28, 2009
Best goggles I have ever owned ! They are great.
January 11, 2008
With HI Yellow lens, perfect for the days in the woods. Fits on my CEBE(61 cm) helmet, but only by some mm.Pos better with helmet adapter. And what a price, and lightning shipping......
Good optics in these goggles
February 08, 2011
The goggles fit my face well. The optics are great. I used these goggles recently on a day with much flat light. I had no problems seeing anything. My only complaint applies to QC with these goggles. There is a small amount of uncured glue on the frames that extends past the point of the foam. I discovered 4 sections of this uncured glue scattered around the frame. Although it does not affect the functionality of the goggles, it causes my fingers to stick to the frame depending on where I grab it. It's not really a big issue to me, but this was unexpected in Oakley goggles that cost such a premium. Seems Oakley has a QC problem with these goggles.Pros: Performance, Cons: qc problem with glue
Superb vision/superb looks
December 07, 2010
A frame goggles fit my face the best (you should check all models in your local shop and than go online). It is hard to beat deals online plus free shipping and no tax :) In my opinion Oakley has the best lenses. Hi-yellow gives excellent picture at low light (overcast and dusk) and black iridium "shines" during sunshine. You can enjoy riding so much more if you can see clearly what you are doing. It is much easier to hit the jump or avoid unexpected obstacle. It is worth spending extra money (usually Hi-yellow and irridium lenses are more expensive). You are getting good quality product that looks good too. Follow manufacturer recommendations regarding cleaning procedures (lenses) and they will last for long time. Happy riding.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Cost
January 01, 2010
Great goggles, don't fog very easily. Lenses give good contrast in low light conditions.
March 20, 2011
Great goggles! The plush triple-layered foam gasket features varied densities that conform to your facial features with far more comfort than traditional goggle designs, giving you a combination of peripheral clarity and fit that blow away the competition.
Great Oakley goggles!!!!!
November 22, 2011
I got the white A-frame goggles with the pink Vr50 lens. The lens are a little darker than I had expected.. But still lite enough where its not difficult to see the terrain at night. Great goggles!Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
April 05, 2009
Just bought my second pair. Best googles I have ever owned!
Really good goggles, don't pay over $100
March 21, 2006
Make sure they fit snug, and you will do fine. If you have a smallish face they will do fine on a helmet. Don't rub inside lens with anything wet, or you will buying a new lens. Hope Oakley fixes that. That is the problem with these.
Can't go wrong
November 04, 2012
Had my eye on these for years and finally broke down. The lens is crystal clear. The foam is dense and not foamy if that makes any sense. Frame, strap, all top notch and made in USA. At least assembled in USA.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
January 19, 2011
Not only are these goggles sweet lookin' in the picture, they are even sweeter on the mountain. The iridium lens is perfect for sunny and cloudy days, and the breath-ability is great! The fit is just what I have become accustomed to from Oakley, perfect! I have worn the goggles with and without my helmet, and the goggles fit great with and without the helmet. I've owned Oakley goggles before, and they've lasted almost seven years now, and I expect the same great quality from Oakley, now and into the future! I ordered this with expectations of it arriving in three days, and I received it in two! Thanks!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value, comfort
February 23, 2010
My wife gave these goggles a good workout in Niseko, Japan last week and she loved them. No fogging issues and great vision.
January 25, 2010
I loved my new goggles, especially since it was snowing big time on the slopes. no fog on the lenses and a comfortable fit, thats all you need. too bad i lost them on only the second day of the holiday :-(
really like these googles
October 27, 2011
I have used oakley A frames for many years and due to the fit they are the only ones i will use. They tend to fit a little snugger which works well for my face. there is a small gap between the gogles and helmet but nothing too bad. I really like this lens as it is good for many different conditions. Just remember, never try to clean them with any eye glass cleaner it will ruin the lens surface.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Great value
January 05, 2012
Another set of high quality goggles from Oakley. I have a smaller face and these fit perfectly. The curve from these goggles provide a tighter fit for my face, but still provides great vision on cloudy and sunny days. Highly recommended to anyone that is looking for both style and function, this set of goggle will be worth it.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
April 10, 2007
These goggles are very comfortable. Although the only problem is when you wear a helmet. If you have your goggles on the outside then it might be a little tight. If you wear them with a beanie and the helmet over the beanie then it will be no problem. Also these goggles are more comfortable than Crowbars.
March 13, 2006
bad thing is it's little small for wearing with a helmet. good thing is they're excellent quality goggles. bad thing is if you rub the inside side of the goggles it streaks. good thing is they look great on you.
