Hannah Neuhauser

Are you about to stock up for the new winter season, but don't know which ski goggles are the right size for you? No problem, we'll help you find the ski goggles that really suit you and explain what to look out for when buying one.

Fit of the ski goggles - the right size is the be-all and end-all

First things first: How should ski goggles fit? This question arises at the very beginning of every ski goggle purchase. You can tell whether the ski goggles fit by the fact that the foam sits evenly on the face. There should be no gaps between the skin and the foam. On the other hand, the foam should not press. Since every face is a different shape, finding the right size can sometimes be difficult. Fits specified by the manufacturer can help ensure that everyone can find the right model. A medium fit is a kind of average size and is suitable for most people. Large Fit, on the other hand, is slightly larger and therefore for people with larger heads and faces. Or for all those who like to wear their ski goggles particularly large or who need a particularly wide field of vision. Small Fit, on the other hand, are ski goggles for small faces. These are designed for children and young people. But people with narrow faces can also fall back on this fit.

Spherical or cylindrical glass, does it make a difference?

Cylindrical lenses are only curved in one direction. These lenses give the goggles a flat and straight look. Spherical lenses are curved in two directions and are somewhat reminiscent of a dome. This lens shape is based on the curvature of the eyes. It therefore gives the ski goggles a particularly wide field of vision. But the different shapes of ski goggles also have an effect on the size of the ski goggles. Due to the additional curvature, spherical glasses appear smaller than cylindrical ones. Even if they are actually almost the same size.
