When spending time on mountain skiing or summer trekking, certain gear is essential both for your performance and safety. One of these pieces of gear is eye protection that can keep your vision clear while you are navigating the slope or walking up the hillside. When it comes to eye protection you have two main options - ski goggles or sunglasses.
Ski goggles provide several benefits that sun glasses don't. For example, ski goggle cover a larger area of the face, which creates a seal against the skin, trapping in heat and keeping your face warm. The additional seal also helps prevent wind and ice crystals from getting in your eyes and better protects the eyes against branches if you are dropping through trees
Sunglasses can be beneficial when navigating the mountain. Sunglasses are typically lighter and more comfortable to wear and can easily make the transition from going down the mountain for a run to walking to your next location.
