Oakley Stockholm Goggle Review

29 Jun, 2008


 

This goggle is sexist. Ordinary goggles are shaped for the boys’ club of facial anatomy. Not OAKLEY STOCKHOLM™. We started with the 3-D cranial geometry that gives Oakley women’s eyewear such a made-for-you fit. We applied three decades of goggle know-how and ended up with the most comfortable design a girl can wear. It just plain feels right. Until you try it on, you’ll have no idea what you’ve been missing.


HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS® (HDO®) offers stunning clarity while maximizing your peripheral and downward view. A triple layer of polar fleece foam wicks away moisture and optimizes comfort. You also get the protection of 100% UV filtering and impact resistance that meets all ANSI Z87.1 standards. To cut fog, Oakley created a dual vented lens and treated it with F3 anti-fog technology. It’s combined with a lightweight urethane frame that stays flexible, even in icy conditions. Bottom line: OAKLEY STOCKHOLM™ is for athletes who powder their noses. With blizzards.

Great goggle for women!

Pros: Lens Quality, Good Visibility, Lightweight
Best Uses: Snowboarding
Describe Yourself: Advanced

This is my first pair of women’s specific goggles, which I love. I switch between these and the Aakley A-frames, but the fit on the stockholm is much better to my face.  Even though I put feels a half size too small, it’s cause it does feel small around my face but that is in terms of the other goggles I am used to.

I picked up this goggles earlier this winter looking for a pair of goggles that would fit my face better. With goggles I can never find a pair that fits the bridge of my nose. Most of them always have some space there which allows for it to get air in and fog up pretty easily. These googles were one of the better fits I could find.

The lense that came with it was persimmon so I only wore the goggles on overcast, cloudy, or snowy days which the lense was suited for. On sunny days I would wear my Oakley A-Frames which have a black iridium lense good for sunny skies.
These are my first pair of women’s specific goggles, the fit is there and it’s a very flexible goggle which took a while to get used to. In terms of looks, I like the design of the Oakley A-frames over the Stockholms which are more squarish.
