Sunglasses work fine for most fair-weather backcountry skiing thanks to the superior airflow and venting while skinning. When the weather rolls in or the powder gets deep, goggles step in with extra protection. The issue with goggles is that when skinning they turn into a fishbowl of fog, sweat, and humidity, rendering them useless. Julbo took note of skiers’ demands for a goggle designed for backcountry skiing and dropped one of the most useful products on the market. Say hello to Starwind, the smaller framed version of the famed Aerospace. The Starwind features a slick patented-technology called Superflow that allows the user to lift the lens a few millimeters away from the frame on a set of small arms. This gives you 360° of airflow and venting while still retaining full lens-function. When it’s time to ski back down through a bowl of bliss, push the lenses back into the frame. The Starwind is all the benefits of goggles and sunglasses in one. If you wear a small or medium sized helmet and enjoy the finer things in life like the best eyewear in existence, try the Julbo Starwind goggles, you won’t be disappointed.
