4.8 out of 5
February 28, 2012
They are great goggles! They give you good vision from the corners of your eyes, which is very helpful for when snowboarding/skiing. I had the A-frames by Oakley and didn't enjoy them as much as this goggles. I have used them for 5 days now and I am very pleased with my purchases!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Crowbar Snow Goggle Rocks!!!
January 12, 2011
The fit of the goggles are great! I have a big nose and I always have problems finding goggles that fit well and don't let goggle fogging air in under my eyes. These do the trick and they're comfortable and fit great with my Smith variant brim helmet. Style is a plus!!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
December 29, 2010
We ordered these to have sent as a gift at the last minute. They arrived in two days, fit perfectly and we had a picture of them in use on Ajax Mtn. Christmas Day! According to our daughter they provide great eye protection, work well with helmet and the anti-fogging is amazing. Thank you for speedy, non-complicated ordering and a really good product!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
best lens for flat light
February 12, 2012
the oakley crowbar with the high intensity yellow lens tint is the best combo for flat light/snowy days. It helps you identify the ground from the sky so you know which way is up and which is down.Pros: Build quality
Nice Goggles with very cool lens
February 03, 2011
This googles is very stylish and personally I like the color of the lens, it provide good protection from sun light and also very eyecathing on the slope..Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost
April 02, 2013
One of the most beautiful designs by Oakley! Unisex style is also very nice when I want to switch my goggles with my boy friend sometimes :) Worthy a try!Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value

great goggle, never fogged up. i ride 50+ days a year on Mt Hood. the vr28 lens works good for days and nights too. flexible frame, just a little big for the helmet i use. (bern)Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Love my new goggles!
March 26, 2013
I ordered these goggles at the last minute. They arrived in two days, easy and speedy service from ALTREC. The goggles work well with my helmet and I know this is a really good product! I ordered a second pair for the cloudy/stormy days (one with yellow lenses) Totally happy!Pros: Great design

Crowbar goggles, nothing more to add to this fine product... I think there is nothing new to discover...Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
Great goggles! No fog, Nice and Confortable fit!
May 26, 2011
I rocked the Oakley Crowbar goggles for the first time last winter in Germany, for three days. I loved how they just fit perfectly on my face and would never fog up! They feel really nice and comfortable, and it`s easy to notice the great quality of the goggles` frames and lens. As for the lenses, I used the persimmon at flat light and at night, and the blue iridium (borrowed from a friend) on bright light. Their quality is outstanding! I fell hard when trying to land a 360 out of a rail and they didn`t get scratched at all. And the field of vision on the crowbars is large, which I prefer for snowboarding. When I came back I decided to buy one of these goggles, so I purchased these with persimmon lens for the next winter. Can`t wait to start using them! I`ll also buy extra lens for bright light, but I`m still deciding between blue and black iridium. Both look sick with the black frames! Overall, outstanding goggles in all terms - design, fit, comfort, performance!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
I love my crowbars a lot
December 13, 2012
No matter what lens you have, polarized or not. Oakley has so extremely high quality vision products. I love my crowbars a lot, They never fog up on me really ever besides when I wear a face mask. They vent out really well, my cheek bone and lower fore head never is to warm with these on. They also don't scratch to easily. The frame is pretty sturdy as well after all the times I have dropped them pulling them out of the goggle bag. Great goggles for the price, no doubt!
High quality goggle
February 18, 2013
Each of my three sons now own the Oakley Crowbar goggle. Two are ski racers, and are on the slopes up to 5 days per week. This goggle has held up great. It is sturdy, well made, and the lens is very high quality. You can also purchase replacement lenses, which is a nice feature (but they are expensive!) Altrec had the best price, as usual!Pros: Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost
April 01, 2009
good fit, good flat light contrast, really like the strap with rubberized helmet grip
Fabulous design by Oakley!
October 20, 2013
This is my first pair of Oakley goggles! Wonderful design and never fogged up. This goggles give you good vision and comfortable feeling. I have to say this crowbar fits my face perfectly and it has great build quality. The lens does a very good job, especially in cloudy and snowy weather. The only thing is it feels a little tight with my helmet. Overall, wonderful product, highly recommended!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Buy it, i just enjoying in europe. Next time when i am back in the states i will buy it for all of my friends
February 17, 2010
Great definition of the slope on a cloudy day.
February 05, 2011
Oakley have the best lenses on the market. They don't fog up like Smiths and are consistantly clear. I've got a big dome so I use the crowbar frame. If you have a smaller noggin try the A Frame but buy Oakley's, they are the best!Pros: Build quality, Performance
love this goggles!
November 05, 2012
After trying a couple of different models and looking around for prices I found the crimson color frame model with the grey lenses was on sale and I couldn't resist the temptation to buy it. They fit amazing and while they are a big bigger than goggles from other brands they are not crazy big like other oakley models (I am 5' 11" and 170 pounds). The only bad thing about this specific model is that you are probably going to need a lighter color lens for night skiing or if it's really dark out.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
Great with out helmet
December 26, 2008
All the above but not made for helmets at all! I dont even know why they have the rubberized strap because you cant buy a longer strape to fit a Large sized helmet like most Adults wear.If you dont like extream skiing were a helmet is required then I would recomend them. You are better off with a A frame that has the longer strap. There might be a warenty about Oakley making the new straps to short I hear?
January 14, 2011
Great price and fast shipping from Altrec. I used to hate wearing goggles because they were distracting and would limit my vision, the Oakley Crowbar has changed that. No problems with them fogging up and they look and fit great. Would highly recommend.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Good goggles for small faces
May 07, 2009
Good looking large lenses, the goggles looks nice and a good quality. However Crowbar model will not fit on larger faces, good for small face size. My old A-Frame is much larger inside and fits better.
April 10, 2008
These goggles were great. Had no problems with fogging and the one time that I got snow in them, they quickly dried out. They also seem quite scratch resistant compared to other Oakley glasses that I have owned in the past. Good quality
November 19, 2005
Love These Goggles!!
January 05, 2012
Absolutely Love these goggles. Fit my face perfectly! They shipped super quick and were cheaper here than any other site by over $20! they don't fog up and stay secure on my helmet. I would absolutely (and have) recommended these goggles to all my friends!!!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
November 28, 2011
Goggles fit perfect and never fogged. The key for me is good contrast in varying types of light which I seem to get from this lens. So far have used in bright sun, cloudy somewhat flat, and as dusk approaches. I highly recommend.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
best lens for flat light
February 12, 2012
the oakley crowbar with the high intensity yellow lens tint is the best combo for flat light/snowy days. It helps you identify the ground from the sky so you know which way is up and which is down.Pros: Performance, Cons: a little short on down looking peripheral vision
January 30, 2008
Although they are not the most comfortable goggles I have ever owned; they are by far the best!
Great goggle, short strap
March 02, 2008
I love the high-intensity persimmon lens. Great clarity and range of vision. My only complaint is that the strap is too short for a helmet. The strap is way to short to fit over a medium Giro helmet and unfortunately no accessory strap is available. I would recommend these goggles to anyone who doesn't wear a helmet
January 16, 2012
Love the frame and H.I. Persimmon lenses! I have a pair of A-frame goggles in the regular persimmon lens as well but this fits my larger face much better, and I had problems with fogging between the lenses with that one. These lenses are even better (somehow I see even more detail in the snow) and the fit more comfortable.Pros: Great design, Performance
Money well spent
March 07, 2011
replaced a pair of Oakley A frames, the Crowbars have much better side vision. They work great with my helmet. I would definitely recommend these. Altrec is great to deal with.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Best Goggle on the Market
December 24, 2010
After getting my first pair of crowbars 3 years ago, I will never own another goggle again. Oakley makes the best lenses on the market. Although expensive, I've never used any lens that is more clear and flawless. Helmet integration is perfect as well. I've had Giro and Smith helmets, the crowbar fits these perfectly w/ no gaper gap. Changes lenses is OK, it takes a little time. But the goggle makes up for this with it's over-all quality. I never get fog with these when I'm skiing throughout the west. But have had issues while skiing in Alaska, simply due to the high humidity and generally warm temperatures. Smith I/O and Phenom are great googlies, but these take the cake simply with the lens quality.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, vision, Cons: Cost, changes lenses
April 14, 2008
I didn't have any issues with fogging. Oakley's lens offers great definition and clarity. Fits comfortably, too.
December 21, 2010
Great goggles! Purchased after reading all the reviews here, and was not disappointed. Purchased with the G30 lens which seemed to be a pretty universal lens for all conditions.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
May 27, 2011
These Oakley goggles are exactly what you'd expect from an Oakley product - high quality, durable, and very comfortable. I bought these goggles because my old (non-Oakley) goggles kept fogging up. These goggles do not fog at all and have great field of vision. I also like that these goggles came with a storage pouch made of soft materials to protect the goggle lenses from scratches. All in all, I'm very happy with these goggles and am sure I will use them season after season.Pros: Build quality, Performance
February 17, 2007
Short and sweet. The goggle is nice, but it is designed for a small to medium face. It fits over helmets really well and even includes a rubberized backing on the inside of the band to prevent it from slipping. One of the nicest elements to it is the construction of the band-to-goggle connection; it smoothly transitions from the side of the goggle over the side of the helmet. I ordered this to work with an extra large Red Protection Frequency Helmet (aka Burton) and it fit okay, but not ideally for such a large noggin. This goggle would work best for a small to medium sized face with a helmet small to medium.
January 28, 2008
very fancy and chic
February 18, 2011
Everything as expected, great product from Oakley, great price and fast shipping from Altrec! I would definitely reccommend these goggle for skiers at any level.Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value
February 05, 2012
Great goggles. No fog, nice and confortable fit.Had my brand new Oakley Crowbars for 5 days this season 11/12 and no scratches. I recommend them to everyone
March 31, 2013
These are among the best googles I have ever used. Not only do they look stylish and fit perfectly on your face, but they also protect your eyes from those harmful UV rays from the sun. These goggles are also very durable, due the fact that I am a beginner and do fall quite often. So if your in the market for some new goggles, I highly recommend these Oakley CrowbarsPros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost
January 02, 2008
Bought these goggles for my son who is a snowboarder. They have a wide range of vision. I have the A Frame model, and the Crowbar is equal to or exceeds the A Frame in design. I got the VR 28 lens; excellent in high to medium light, with a blue appearance; reduced glare well. I have always been impressed with Oakley quality, whether in sunglasses or goggles.
January 08, 2010
This is one of the best goggles that I have ever purchased. I would recommend staying away from the "Fire" lens. The different shades of orange and yellow on the ouside of the lens can be seen when looking out them. It change in color made me dizzy. Go with the "Black Iridium" which has a slight silver reflective color on the outside. The lens color is consistent looking through. Great buy!
Happy with these
October 16, 2010
Reviewed a lot of different brands before buying. Have had experience with Oakley before, so I narrowed it down to the Crowbar. Excellent goggle and value. My Persimmon lens was perfect all-around lens for varying conditions.Pros: Build quality, Great value
go for the A frame instead
March 19, 2007
I used my husband's A frame Oakley while skiing, so I decided to buy a pair for myself since I really enjoyed his A frame persimmon lens. I did not like the shape of the Crowbar as well as the A frame and the Denim band was not at all what I expected...the denim was a nice color but the left side had a pocket on it (like you would find on a pair of jeans) and the right side had a label (similar to what you would find on a pair of jeans)....it made it hard to adjust the band. So, I am going to buy the A frame instead.
October 09, 2009
used in Tahoe,during a snow storm and they performed perfectly. highly recommended
good field of view
January 20, 2010
I got the crowbars b/c I had the best vision "up and down" out of them. Peripheral isn't as important to me as being able to easily see the snow beneath me.
I like this product very much.very clear vision and nice fit
March 28, 2010
Because I wear contact this product gives me very clear vision. They are good for me when weather very snowy. The goggle is very helpful
January 18, 2010
Solid goggle frames and the lens are what you make of them. I purchased jet black with persimmon lens but also purchased the pink iridium lens. The pink iridium lens are perfect for the East Coast cloud cover.
March 16, 2011
Goggles worked great while at Northstar in Tahoe! Very impressed, great vision, not once did they fog and exceeded my expectations for what I paid. Goggles can run a bit tight when worn with a helmet, but overall great buy for the money with Oakley's name and reputation on the product. Thank you Altrec! Fla SkierPros: Performance, Great value
Great pair of Goggles
February 08, 2011
The reason i was looking for a new pair of goggles snowboarding was because they would fog up all the time and i couldn't see thru them all that well. Until of course I bought the crowbar. If they get any moisture inside the goggles not even just fog like rain droplets just put them on and they will evaporate away. They vents are big and many of them so they work great. I bought them with the vr-28 lenses and again it's great. Worth the money my next one will be with clear lenses for night time.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
February 08, 2011
Awesome, just awesome. Used these three trips in a row and haven't fogged up once. Excellent vision and clarity, however, I would not recommend this tint on overcast days. Good fit overall and works well with a helmet.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
November 15, 2012
These goggles are fabulous. They fit my face perfectly and they are not big at all, just perfect. Also compatible with my old helmet. I've used it the whole last season and it never fogged for me which surprised me a lot. Also visibility is really great, angle is perfect. The lens does its job perfectly, especially in cloudy and snowy conditions. I'm a hundred percent satisfied with Oakley Crowbar goggles.Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value
Very nice goggle but only fits large faces
April 11, 2008
Good frame and padding, a great lens and a silicon coating on the strap to keep it from sliding. Only problem is that this design does not fit smaller faces. It pinches my nose even more than my older E-frame Oakleys.
Great helmet fit
January 29, 2006
Much better fitting than my A-frames with my Gyro helmet. Doesn't fit so tight against my face and the stap has not slip surface that really does stay put on helmet surface.
November 29, 2011
great product, no fogging at all used it for snowboarding and works great. the fit is great good durability and priced appropriately. Thumbs up for oakleyPros: Great design, Build quality, Great value

I just got the new danny kass signature series crowbars and they fit great with or without my pro tec classic helmet. THEY LOOK SICK TOO!!
