Going from skiing with sunglasses to hitting the slopes with the Julbo Orbiter goggles is akin to switching from Ten High whiskey to Jameson—they’ll both do the job, but Jameson is actually enjoyable. The Camel lens is photochromic and polarizing, so it blocks glare quickly when the lighting conditions change. The shape and fit of these goggles allows for wide peripheral vision, and the anti-fog treatment and great ventilation lets the lens remain clear all day. Other goggle options can get you down the hill, but you’ll enjoy the ride a lot more with the Orbiters. Available at Gallatin Alpine Sports. $200; julbousa.com.
