Uvex Uvision Vario Ski Goggle Review

The Uvex Uvision Vario Ski Goggle is an expensive, but very fancy, winter sport goggle with more bells and whistles than most similar products. Most notable is the electronic LCD in the polycarbonate lens, which, when a button is pushed, can increase or decrease the level of tint depending on conditions. Changing the tint level is easy, and it is quite effective, making these goggles a versatile and excellent choice for those days where the sun just won’t stay put. While this feature could have been added as gimmick or an excuse to jack up the price, it proves very useful and effective. It’s just up to you whether or not it’s really a necessary feature.

The lenses themselves are durable and well-made, not fogging up even when I started to sweat under them. The foam lining on the Uvex Uvision Vario Ski Goggle proved very comfortable, though nothing special, and started to itch at the end of my ski day. This is nothing new, especially since I didn’t take any breaks throughout my entire day. Any goggle, when left maschere da sci outlet on for so long, will become itchy, so the Uvex Uvision Vario Ski Goggle actually performed quite well by not becoming itchy until the end of my ski day. The further fact that the lenses never fogged up reflects the real quality of this goggle.

The Uvex Uvision Vario goggle performed excellently and was easy to adjust for different lighting conditions, but you’ll have to carry around extra batteries in case the goggles run out of juice. While the batteries last a long time, there’s no telling when they will run out, and changing the batteries on the slope is a hassle. Not knowing how long you have left, for me there was an element of nervousness when using the Uvex Uvision Vario Ski Goggle, as I was always thinking “this might be the time” when the batteries need to be changed. So, while the electronic tint adjustment system is effective, I’d almost rather not have to worry about whether or not I have enough power left for another day on the slopes. This isn’t a reflection of the quality of the Uvex Uvision Vario Ski Goggle; I just prefer the simplicity of a non-electronic goggle because it’s less to worry about. For the gear junkie who has to have the latest and greatest, though, the Uvex Uvision Vario Ski Goggle is a great little ski goggle with enough advanced features to satisfy any show-off on the mountain.

Bolle ski goggles come in a whole various line to help protect the eyes in the most efficient way possible. There are goggles for every type of face an every basic need. It is simply unappealing when you’re on the slopes and you continuously have to reach up and adjust the fitting of your protective gear. You need face protection that contours well to your face and fits well regardless of whether you’re hitting the slopes for the first time or you are getting ready for an Olympic run.

Of course, there is something to be said for a goggle that can actually fit over your glasses. Almost all goggles have made the assumption that you wouldn’t be donning a pair of corrective vision lenses before hitting the slopes. While many skiers choose the contact route, it can be said for those who wear glasses, this is a really nice touch.

Instead of having to choose between being able to see the slopes and being able to keep your eyes protected, you can actually have both. Those of us who do wear glasses are forever grateful to the protective fit that goes along with the innovative design.
