Review Scott OTG Storm Goggles
I've now ridden with these goggles for the past two weeks and can share my initial reactions. I purchased them for the remarkable price of $30. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0042A7HBE/...SIN=B0042A7HBE
The goggles are much better than I anticipated. Here's what I like. The price. The lens quality is much higher than I expected. There are VERY clear with no discernible distortion. They have not fogged up at all (they've been used in single digit temperatures up to 30 degrees F.). They provide more protection from wind than other glasses I've worn in the 30+ mph wind on a two of the rides. Oh, and did I mention the price?
Here's what could be better. The material that moves the goggles far enough away from your face to accommodate glasses is wind permeable so you do feel air moving in from the sides. It's a bit distracting, but still better than no goggles at all. The goggle are just a bit big, in that, they rub against the brim of my helmet. Because of a significant hearing loss, I use a mirror on my helmet, and the goggle's size makes it hard to position the mirror in a way where it can actually be used. The strap has two plastic bits for adjustment on both sides. They press against my head when I've got the adjusted to fit properly. Once again, a small annoyance that I'll probably get used to.
Here's what I don't know yet. I haven't had them long enough to know how the lens will hold up or how scratch resistant it is.
A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright
