This Bolle Carve snow goggles review presents a unisex, budget-friendly model, suitable for skiing, snowboarding, ATV riding, etc. Thanks to the double lens, made of solid carbo glass, they can withstand rough use, severe weather conditions, and will stay as good as new for a long time due to scratch-resistant covering.
Being made of lightweight materials, these goggles weigh less than half a pound. Having 8 x 5 x 5 inches in size, they don’t look bulky on the face.
The Bolle Carve ski goggles offer some advanced features. For example, a double-layer ergonomic face foam with a soft micro-fleece layer which makes it comfortable to wear for long hours. It also works great in keeping your face warm.
The goggles have an OTH (Over the Helmet) fit, engineered specifically to be compatible with most helmet designs. However, when used with a helmet, the strap tends to slip down a bit as there is no anti-slip protection. These goggles are designed for small and medium faces.
The lens is supplied with a thermal barrier which provides a clear view by preventing the formation of condensation caused by cold dry air and moisture. Besides, the lens has P80 anti-fog layer on the inside which effectively disperses water molecules across the surface.
It’s also worth mentioning that the lens can’t be easily removed, so you will have problems trying to replace it in the case of breakage. It’s also not the best choice for those who like changing lenses depending on conditions.
Thanks to the Flow Tech venting system, the airflow directs across the inside surface of the lens preventing moisture build-ups to ensure that the vision is always clear. The UV-protection is included as well.
If you are wondering if the Bolle Carve snow goggles are polarized, the answer is no. This way, they are not capable of blocking the glare.
The Bolle Carve goggles are intended to be used during sunny and partly cloudy weather conditions. If you need goggles that will provide you with a clear view during very cloudy and dark conditions, this model is unlikely to meet your requirements. It also should be noted that these goggles have a flat lens that does have some level of view distortion.
The Bolle Carve snow goggles have a middle-sized TPU frame that protrudes out from lens a bit but doesn’t interfere with visibility. The lens has a vermillon gun color which provides a rosy shade view while the goggles themselves are offered in 3 colors: white, black, and purple.
The venting ports, located on the top of the lens, are medium-sized. This means that they are big enough to ensure decent ventilation but not so big to get clogged by snow and ice.
The Bolle Carve snow goggles will perform well in protecting your eyes from the sun, wind, and other negative elements that you can encounter on the snow-covered slopes. For a budget price, they give you such basic features as Flow Tech venting that prevents fogging which reduces visibility, as well as anti-scratch lens surface and UV-protection. However, they can’t offer interchangeable lenses or superior visibility during low light or extreme weather conditions.
