    Chinese Goggles on Amazon

    I would love if someone would do a myth busters style test. Take an expensive pair and a knockoff pair - and shoot them with various caliber rounds to see how protective they actually are. Ryanf9 had a YouTube comparo on cheap vs name-brand helmets - it was eye opening for sure

    Ya, but...

    Those knockoff helmets are total garbage. I'd love to know the difference between my $100 LS2 trigger helmet and, say, an Arai or Shoei

    Got mine yesterday...first impressions would be impressive for a more expensive goggle, for $25 this is a no-brainer unless the Chinese have put some sort of mind-melt device in them. Build seems solid, lens is clean and true. Mount is secure, it would take a significant amount of force to knock the lens loose from the magnets but it's relatively easy to take off/put back on when you want to. Frame is a bit big but so is my head and they mate well with my Pret Cynic helmet. Should have got a lighter lens, I went with the 15% Blue and can tell it's only going to be good on very bright days so I ordered the 60% Light Blue. Hopefully going to check them out on the hill tomorrow, we'll see how that goes.

    Anyone find a discount code on replacement lens?

    Also, this thread and my subsequent purchase of no-name knock-offs reminds Me Of the Geico commercial where the guy starts to act like his dad after buying a house. That's me now.

    I'm hoping a black magic marker to fill in the gogglemaster branding on the strap will save my streetkred.

    DAMN, I was hoping it would give me streetkred. Guess I'll have to re-read the rules. Den

    No discount codes for lenses that I've seen. There is one on the Outdoor Master web site, but it only brings the price in line with Amazon. I'll probably just order another pair of goggles to get an extra lens. Unfortunately, I cant get a yellow lens that way - not offered.

    Anyone have a new code? GOGGLESPRO doesn't seem to be working for me now.

    Has anyone test the ZIONOR x4 lenses in the frame? Because their light orange looks great and is priced right. It has 1 less magnetic attachment point, but if everything else is the same, shouldn't it still work?

    Damn, guess we blew it up. It still says it works in the description, but it doesn't work in the cart.
    No longer stuck.

    Skied with mine today and can't say anything really bad about them yet. Not exactly a challenging day for a goggle though. Super bright, warm and terrain was the front side. The lens was sharp and clear and they're really comfortable but a bit on the warm side, not sure about ventilation. Looking forward to seeing how they do under more challenging conditions.

    Skied with mine today too; I think I had the 15%. Seemed solid for partly sunny/partly cloudy day.

    Same here!
    It would be nice if there were some vent holes in the top of the lens like other googles usually have. I suppose since it's just magnetized on, you could always pop it off and shake it out and pop it back on.
    Seemed like it may have wanted to fog if I breathed to hard into my collar. That's kinda every goggle though.

    Getting used to the wider field of view is nice. Really want a light orange lens, though. Who's gonna guinea pig the Zionor X4 lenses? You can always return them.

    FYI I got the 60% Light Blue lens today and it's distorted so badly over the left eye I can't use it. Going back for replacement, we'll see how the next one is.

    I had a distortion in my first pair. Amazon delivered the replacement in less than 24 hours!

    I decided what could go wrong for $20 and free returns via prime. They seem legit. Doesn’t surprise me that there are some manufacturing problems but the ones I got have perfect optics. For $20 they’re a score. If code still worked I’d order more.

    Got the replacement lens today, pretty much the same defect as the first one. Going to try it tomorrow and see just how bad it is under real conditions. Pretty disappointed though, even for $25.

    Same here 60% Blue were great. I somehow got them for $10.67. I might even buy some at
    $40.

    Snagged a pair for a gift for a new skier. Interested in checking them out. Most of them end up getting made in the same couple factories overseas and either branded with a big known company or you end up with $25 pairs of very similar goggles, with slightly shittier QC.
    Also code GOGGLESPRO is still working. Free same day in seattle so ill have em before 8PM tonight!

    Got mine with the 80% light green lens. Optics are fine. There's a bit more of the foam in my field of vision than on some of my older goggles, but it's not a big deal.

    Lens has worked well on a few fairly cloudy days (3 chair visibility). It's not mind blowingly great or anything, but it gives decent contrast even in thick fog. It's one of the better low light lenses I have. Don't know how it compares to a chromapop storm or something like that since I refuse to shell out $200 for a couple bucks worth of plastic.

    All in all, well worth the $20.

    My optics are very clear. Just dark.

    There was a guy in front of me in the lift line today that had a pair of the Zionor goggles. Thought about catching up to him and asking if he'd let me try his lens on my goggles but figured he'd think I was nuts. (and he'd be right. oh well)

    The sketchy lens wasn't terrible, not a good day again though to test a lighter lens, too clear and bright. Can't send it back right away either because they haven't got the 1st one back yet.

    Discount still working. I just ordered another pair to get the light green lens for lower light. The Zionor lenses are still more than the discounted complete Outdoor Master goggles... as long as this discount works.

    Discount code didn’t work in my account again.
    But it did on my wife’s, on multiple pairs.

    code is good - bought 4x googles of different low to mid level light googles. I am going to be riding a lot in low light/vis conditions in trees this year with my brother, so this thread came at a really good time for us to get some googles we can trash without loosing sleep over it.

    Four googles for 80 bucks is pretty bonkers, especially if they also somewhat work.

    Thanks for the tip! Will report back upon use.

    I grabbed a pair of the 18% green lens. On a sunny and then cloudy day, I was really surprised by the clarity, and they handled flat light well. Ordering a few more for different conditions. The code GOGGLESPRO only works once per account.
