A nice rounded shape gives this goggle the appearance of much more expensive goggles out there. These goggles fit well around any hats and most helmets, but skiers with larger helmets may have trouble with the strap being too short to comfortably wrap around the helmet.
Spherical Lens: The lens of this goggle reduces the distortion of images because of the spherical shape. When a piece of plastic is flexed in one dimension, the images becomes tall and skinny, similar to beer goggles. But when plastic is formed into a spherical shape, the distortion is minimized.
This Goggle may have different types of lenses listed. Here is a brief summary of how each lens type effects vision.
Smoke: a fancy term for Grey. It is a good lens for variable light to bright light conditions.
Orange: great for low light to variable light conditions. It amplifies the light available, so it isn't a good choice for bright days.
Mirrored: highly reflective. Mirrored lenses eliminate glare and flatten out the light. Depending on the lens color a mirrored lens can be good for sunny or snowy conditions.
Bronze: a grey amber lens with a light reflective coating. It is not a true mirror lens, but it does help reduce some of the glare. This is lens is good in low light to average light conditions.
Gold mirror: only be pulled off by a few. It helps if you have gold chains or grillz. Looking through the lens is an amber color, which is great for low light to variable light conditions, and is decent on the sunny days.

This must be removed prior to usage. If you look through the goggles and it looks like you forgot to put your contacts in, you need to remove the film, or maybe you just forgot to put your contacts in.
