When I first saw the Mig last year I wasn't too hyped on it. I did not think it would be a product for me because I love my Outdoor Tech Yowies and they have never done me wrong. All I can say is I absolutely love this goggle. The magnetic face mask is awesome and fits better than any other goggle / mask combo I have ever used.
Style: The Mig is an OTG goggle so it does stick out from your face a bit more than other goggles. As you can see in the pic, they stick out quite a bit past the helmet (that Pret helmet also fits on the smaller side / is low profile).
Fit: I find that a lot of goggles are too narrow where it sits on your face. The Mig is not the widest goggle but it does not encroach on my eyes. The field of view is not as good as goggles such as the Canopy, but they are decent. The face mask magnetically attaches to the nose of the frame. It fits seamlessly, and it does not sit too tightly or loosely. No air escapes between the magnetic seem, and the face mask is extremely breathable. I have not had any issues with fogging on the inside or outside of the lens.
Lens: The pair I have came with persimmon and Silver Amber. We all know how average persimmon is. The Silver Amber is excellent in sunny conditions. It is horrendous in any sort of low or flat light. Even ducking into trees and shadows is pretty bad with this lens on. The quality is good so far. No scratches or anything, they seem to be resistant to brutality.
Pros: ultimate face mask integration, good looking goggle, pretty easy to swap the lens for being a non-quick interchange.
Negs: Not a quick change lens, could have better peripheral, not the best lens combo (they have different combos).
The Mig goggle by Anon is in my opinion, a gamer changer in the world of high-performance goggles.
The Mig features a frameless, spherical, anti-fog lens. The pair I tested came with a Silver Amber lens which worked well in bright and overcast conditions. The lens has no distortion and has put up well so far with forays through the forest and park. No scratches yet to be seen. These do not have the widest field of view out there, but I found the peripheral vision to be more than wide enough to keep me happy.
The frame has more vents than I have ever seen on a goggle before. It has vents on every side of the goggle, leading to great airflow through the goggle to help eliminate fogging. Lenses are also interchangeable, and the Mig is fairly easy to change once you know how to do so. It is not quite as easy as some goggles that tote how fast you can change over to a new lens, but it is hardly the worst goggle I have tried to change the lens on. The strap comfortable and features two points of adjustment.
The Game changing aspect that I mentioned earlier however does not come from any of the traditional features you find on any other pair of goggles. It comes in the form of the face-mask that is included with the goggles. What really makes these goggles special is that the face-mask was designed by Anon specifically to match to the goggles via magnets located on the bottom of the frame, and on the top of the face-mask. This creates a perfect seal between the goggles and mask, keeping your nose under the mask. It does not force you to shove the face-mask under the goggles which usually results in the goggles fogging up. Between the perfect seal on the face-mask, and the ridiculous amounts of vents on the frame I have been completely unable to make these goggles fog at all under any conditions. Even hiking out of the woods in deep powder they were kept crystal clear. I have only two complaints to level at the goggles. The first is that the vent on the face-mask is offset to one side, which results in a cold side of your face. I would prefer the vents be located right in front of the mouth. The second complaint is that I wish they would release more versions of the face-mask! The one included is a very soft, single layer cotton which works great down to about 15 deg F in dry conditions. Below 15F or in wet conditions, the thin cotton simply is not up to the task of keeping you warm. If anon starts selling neoprene face-masks that will match up to these goggles, I will buy them in a second.
The Mig goggle is by far my favorite new product this year, if you are looking for a goggle that is stylish, will never fog and will keep your whole face warm, look no further.
