About the ZEAL level Goggles: Brand new design for Zeal’s 2013 line…….they rolled the dice, and it payed off! Zeal was born from a passion of innovation in eyewear, and they have not quit. With the oversized frames trending across the market, the level is Zeals “iron in the fire” in the arena of HUGE goggles!!! And trust me, these things are enormous! Up until I was on the mountain, I thought these goggles would be way too big for me.  Well, I actually still think they are too big.  At least for this skier.  But, after a day of use, they grew on me, and did not look too big with my helmet on….but with a beanie, they looked HUGE!  Remember, it is all about looks!   Perhaps I will get used to the look of these, time will tell.  

Advise on these goggles: Make sure to try these on prior to buying.  They are bigger than most oversized goggles out there.  But that being said, they offer an unusual amount of field of view!  Also, make sure to check out the entire Level line. The color palette is amazing, not to mention the texturing and stand-out finishes Zeal crafted up.

Helmet Compatibility: My nugget was pleased. I wore this goggle with my Pret Helmet, and it was very comparable (see photo below). No issues found with helmet/goggle relations.

Tech talk:

  • Anti-Fog™ infused lens process
  • Impact resistant frame technology
  • High density lens technology
  • 100% UV Protection
  • Helmet Compatible
  • Dual Strap adjustments
  • Optimum™ lens
Foggage: No fog during my day of use. Temps 4–45degF. Zeal has an anti-fog infusion on their lenses. This is a top secret government formula that Zeal has access too.
.
For my face: This goggle is designed for medium/larger size faces, however, give it a go, it may fit you!
.
Pro’s: The design. This oversized massive frame allows you to see everything!! I mean everything!!
.
Cons: Some may argue the Level went next level big, too big.
.
Location/Conditions: Crystal Mountain Resort, WA (April 2013), overcast, warm day in April 2013.
