Anon M3 2016-2017 Snowboard Goggles Review

UPDATE: Check out our review of the 2017/2018 Anon M3 here

The Details:

The more you snowboard, the more likely it is that you’re going to come up against varying conditions. There’s an obvious solution, and that’s to get a pair that have two features; a wide range of different lenses from which to choose, and an easy system for changing them when the time comes. In the case of Anon goggles, it’s ‘tick, tick’.

The Anon M3, like all Anons, features the brand’s patented ‘Magne-Tech’ technology. At nine different points around the frame you’ll find a strong magnet that keeps the lens in place. It won’t budge a milimetre even on the nastiest yard sale, but is surprisingly easy to pop out with you hands when you want to change your tint.

These boast a classic framed look with a cylindrical lens – if you’re not a fan of either of those things, you should probably check out the M2 instead. With plush triple-density foam and an anti-fog coating, the quality of your vision will be matched only by your comfort.

The fancy magnet tech is also applied to a compatible facemask, which clicks seamlessly into place to create an impenetrable fortress for your face.

Tester’s Verdict

Tom CopseyOnboard

“For my medium-to-large melon, these are a great fit with solid visibility. They still have a smaller-looking profile, so it doesn’t look like you’re wearing a goldfish bowl.

The magnetic lens changing is just awesome, and hasn’t come close to coming out after a season of riding, but the best is the magnetic facemask. You get all the face protection without the fogging that comes if you tuck a neckwarmer up under your lens. That makes the M3 perfect for baltic days (and sunny days too, if you’re English).”
