All ski and snowboard goggles offer maximum sun protection and are certified 100% anti-UV. With this in mind, what are the conditions in which you generally ski?

All ski and snowboarding goggles feature an anti-fog coating to ensure clear vision on the slopes. Read on to find the best anti-fog goggles for you.

Tip: Make sure that the goggle vents are not covered by a neck warmer or a scarf. Try to avoid rubbing or scratching the interior of your goggles. Instead, wipe the inside carefully; this will protect and maintain the effectiveness of the anti-fog coating for as long as possible. When you’re finished using your goggles, make sure to dry them completely.

There are two size options: Size S (Small) and Size L (Large). You should select the size according to the structure and size of your face as well as whether or not you require prescription glasses.

Size S
This is the ideal size for children and for those whose faces are elongated and/or narrow.

Size L
This is the perfect model for those whose faces are larger and/or square.


If you ski with prescription glasses, we recommend choosing the OTG (Over the Glasses) models, which are designed expressly for this purpose. You may also wish to visit a Decathlon store in person in order to try on the mask with your prescription glasses.
