IZIPIZI Snow All Weather: first impressions

The simply named IZIPIZI Snow All Weather is a minimalist-style piece of eyewear and IZIPIZI’s all-rounder of a ski goggle. It’s fitted with a gray Cat 2 20% VLT lens that aims to offer good visibility in most weather conditions (for more on this subject see: how to choose ski goggles for optimal visibility and protection).

If you don’t like massive bubble-shaped goggles that take up half your face – and there are plenty of those in our best ski goggles buying guide – you’ll love this more subtle style. A foam lining moulds nicely to the face with no gaps, and there’s enough room for glasses behind the lens despite the slim frame. 

Six frame colorways are available, as well as Cat 1 and Cat 3 lens versions from IZIPIZI.

IZIPIZI Snow All Weather: on the slopes

We rate this as a fuss-free all-rounder designed to do what it says on the tin. We also like that you can order small or large sizes from the range, rather than having to choose from male or female offerings in order to find the perfect fit – skiers with smaller faces and anyone shopping for a teenager will find the small version perfect.

The downside to this lens design is that it doesn’t offer as wide a field of vision as a big spherical lens would, and you can see some of the frame in the corners of your eyes. But it’s absolutely fine for beginner-intermediate skiers planning on sticking to the pistes and who are after something affordable that can cope with most weather conditions, rather than the best ski goggles for downhill and backcountry skiing. The All Weathers also fit nicely over prescription glasses.
