Julbo Aerospace Ski Goggles: Keep ‘Em On!

One of the biggest annoyances of winter sports is the sheer amount of gear required, and the constant outfit/equipment changes. You have to regularly take your skis off, hassle with your helmet, try to get comfortable when you’re not heading downhill, and take your goggles off too. No matter what you’re wearing, or where you’re spending your winter, you want to rely on your gear but also don’t want it to drag you down or make your life more complicated.

That’s why Julbo developed the Aerospace Goggles, featuring Reactiv lenses with photochromic lenses. You’ve seen this technology before likely, but these are quite a bit different than most- they also boast the firm’s proprietary tech, the SuperFlow System. Allowing the lenses to snap out of the frame for ventilation (without risking them), the company claims that these are the “first goggle you can wear whether you’re on the skin track, lift, or flying down the mountain”.

And unlike some of the others on the market, these don’t require you to swap (or pack) other lenses, nor do they need batteries. Plus, they are impressively lightweight thanks to the minimalist frame design. Two layers of foam keep these comfortable, even in freezing temperatures, and the field of view is still quite wide if slightly more narrow than some we’ve seen. The anti-fog coating was pretty good in our tests, and they did shift fairly quickly in different conditions, protecting our eyes in bright sunlight and in shade/indoors.

The Julbo Aerospace Goggles are available with a few different lenses and color options too- ours were Zebra and black, but we like the Snow Tiger color lens and the blue/red strap and frame, with other versions like yellow, a nifty orange/blue, and some alternate lens shades too. Expect to spend around $229.95 online and in stores, and now you can take that backcountry hike, even in serious conditions, without worrying about your goggles fogging up.
