skittitiwait but where's the rant about antifog
THE_SWITCHANYWAY, I'LL START HERE: Today skiing it was pouring rain and when I put my goggles in their protective case, I did not think residual water would stay in the fucking case. I get home to find that the fucking spare lense smeared and my other lenses are wrecked. Anti fog seems to cause way more problems than it fixes. I was using Oakley O2 XL's btw. As good as the vision before your goggles get wrecked after a week, I strongly advise against oakley goggles /minirant
skiermanThis kid is an idiot. Wow.
SKRockiesdude! my skis were soaked and i shoved them in my ski bag without drying them and now they have rust :( i strongly advise against skis!!!!!
you're an idiot, learn to care for your shit and don't rant if you're in the wrong m8
HoodlivingGood fight Oakley lenses but they lost, and wont get replaced lol. Your first mistake was Oakley your second was gaper, your third was not drying your goggs out of the case, fourth is Oakley and the 5th. Get 2 -4 drops of dawn dish soap in a shot glass mix then rub on your lenses congrats you now have smith antifog treatment.
HoodlivingI like touching little boys. I also have a burning passion for beastiality.
Poindexter.lol dont put your goggles away wet noob
THE_SWITCHI dried them as much as I could. Also, i'm just annoyed that a smudge proof coating could be used instead of the standard anti fog. It's like if all ski companies used paper thin bases and edges and when someone complains about it, people say shit like "why don't you just go easier on your skis?". I was just suggesting more durable goggles. I'm aware that skis are tools, not jewels, but it really would be nice if goggles were more durable. My last goggles the same thing happened (the frames also snapped) but the lenses got all smudged because I tried a double backie and went tips in.
freeskibum82you spent $50 on a low end oakley goggle.. what did you really expect? spend $180 andstep up to their molded spherical lenses and then come talk to us.
THE_SWITCHI have a pair of canopies that I use on sunny days and have yet to damage them but that's just cause they haven't gotten wet yet. I'm not saying that it wouldn't have been ideal to just leave them out to dry. My point is that it would be great if antifog was harder to smudge. I also had a pair of splices that the same thing happened to but not nearly as bad. I still use them sometimes. It happens all the time and it doesn't need to happen from misuse. I know plenty of people who this has happened to from crashing and snow making its way in.
freeskibum82get the stuff called Cat Crap. ive seen that work pretty well to fix the issue temporarily. you'll have to apply again in time but it seems to work. Also, O2XL lenses shouldnt be that expensive through oakley either.
THE_SWITCHi can also lip on blind truu so that means im not an gaper.

Titsandwich11what is the best approach to cleaning the inside of your oakleys if you eat shit and get snow on the inside? i can't just stand there for 5 hours while they dry by themselves, but i have ruined a pair of crowbars by wiping the inside of the lens after a crash
freeskibum82use the goggle case cloth after getting as much snow out of these as possible. i dont recommend wiping at first either since there can be dirt and debris in the snow. its best to blot it at first. wouldnt hurt to just go to the lodge and use the hand dryer in the bathroom to dry them out quick and then buff with the goggle cloth.
