Getting a seamless fit between your facemask and your goggles can make all the difference when facing challenging conditions - just ask anyone who regularly rides in Scotland.
Instead of trying - and failing - to make tucking your bandana/neckwarmer underneath the bottom of your frame work, consider the Anon M3 snowboard goggle.
"When you want to change your lens, a light squeeze in the right place will have it popping out with ease"
The Anon M3 features magnets along the bottom of its frame, which attract those in a purpose-built neckwarmer. The result is a face that’s locked up like Bernie Madoff, only far more comfortably.
Even if you don’t need the extra protection, the goggle is a marvel of engineering in itself. More magnets ensure that the frame and lens of the M3 are attracted to each other with such force that even the nastiest slam won’t separate them. However, when you want to change your lens to a one with a different tint, a light squeeze in the right place will have it popping out with ease.
The cylindrical lens of the Anon M3 is as clear as a bell, and for additional coin you can get Zeiss’ Solar version for next-level contrast. Either way, you’ll find that the Anon M3 goggle holds up in every way that matters - a top choice for any fan of the framed look.
"I personally prefer the spherical, frameless Anon M2, but it’s really just a matter of taste. The M3 is a similar price and has all the same great tech, so if a framed cylindrical goggle is what you’re after then this won’t disappoint.
"Combined with the MFI facemask, it’s a fantastic goggle that will keep your face happy all day"
The new Solar lens is terrific, but I also tried the standard version and it didn’t feel lacking. As is usually the case with Anon models, I got a clear, fog-free view of the slopes at all times.
Combined with the MFI facemask, it’s a fantastic goggle that will keep your face happy all day."
