Ski Like You Mean It

I remember the first time I went skiing. I was about 14 and could not understand why I had to wear sunscreen. If you don't know, I grew up in Houston where we did not have snow, we had slush. And when it did get cold enough for the slush to stay on the ground, the weather was always grey. Fast forward to that first day at Angelfire, NM and I could not believe how bright it was! The sun was out even though it was freezing and the sunlight bounced right off the bright white snow. I really wish I had some good ski goggles then. And a baklava...

Today I was so pleased and excited to try out the Double Lens Goggles from #CoziaDesign which also came with a baklava...imagine that! You can see a slightly off-center video of me trying them on for the first time and even quickly changing the lenses here on my YouTube channel.

A bit later I tried the goggles on without the baklava later and was pleased that they fit just as comfortably with and without the cloth. I was concerned that my hair would be an issue. Either the head band would slide or it would catch. If you look closely at the photo on the left you can see a set of wavy lines. Those are made with a silicone bead that is supposed to give a better grip. I am pleased to pronounce that they did not pull out my hair and also kept the band from slipping around on my hair so the goggles can be comfortably used without the baklava.

These goggles come with two lenses which connect easily and securely using magnets. I was not expecting the change of lenses to be so easy and thought I might have to press them in firmly. But you just pop one out by pressing on the inside and then pop the other on just by getting it close enough to the frame for the magnets to engage. Everything fits in the drawstring pouch and they even threw in a microfiber lens cloth.

And for the bonus points, I don't look like a goober either!

I received this product at a discount or free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I would totally purchase these at full price for the next skiing adventure, if I didn't already have them.
