arnette WINDSHIELD goggle review [2013/2014]

Introducing the WINDSHIELD by Arnette……while the official release is not till next season, I was able to get my hand’s on some for review. Hands-down at $70-100 msrp best goggle for the price by far!!

The skinny:

Arnette has a new goggle up their sleeve for the 2013/2014 season (yeah, next season), and it is called The WINDSHIELD! This no fuss, no muss goggle is clean and classic. Best part: PRICE!!!! $70-100 (depending on lens)!!!

It has all of the fit and anti-fog features you need to have your all-time day on the hill. The goggle is totally helmet compatible & fits very well with my helmet by Pret Helmets. Seamless in fact. See photo below. The strap has a no slip coating that ensures your goggles stay in place on your beanie of helmet. The goggle comes factory with a no fog coating on the interior lens, and a scratch free goggle/wipe bag, so you don’ scotch up your new lens.

Price-point:

The price point for the WINDSHIELD is very reasonable. you’re looking at dropping $65-100 depending what lens you go with. Comparable goggle companies have you spending twice that for their similar goggle.

A bit about the brand:

Did you know Arnette was born more than 20 years ago in a one car garage in Orange County? Yup, all true. One of the first eye-wear brands to really embrace the action sports culture of the snow/skate/surf/MX lifestyles. Arnette’s snow goggles are inspired by the love for riding and the joy of ripping it with your buddies.
