    ***SOLD***

    I have a set of Oakley Canopy Goggles with 2 x Prizm lenses for sale.

    [​IMG]
    I'm selling because they are a decent size goggles and I have a small face, and the mismatch is compounded by my new helmet.

    They work extremely well as an OTG goggle and I have no fogging problems.

    The two lenses are Prizm Rose for low and flat light and Prizm Torch Iridium for bright conditions.

    http://www.evo.com/oakley-goggle-lens-color-tint-guide.aspx

    The prizm lenses are outstanding in snow and really emphasise the depth and visibility, especially in flat light.

    The goggles are 12 months old and still in outstanding condition, used for a total of 5 weeks on snow.

    The rose lens has one small scratch and a few rub marks around the nose, but still work brilliantly without causing visibility problems or distractions.

    The Torch lens has been used much less and still looks brand new.

    Comes with a white cloth goggle bag and a lens bag

    Replacement cost for these through Backcountry are USD180 for the goggles, plus USD100 for a replacement lens.


    If you are interested, please MSG me.

    $100

    (ps, I will be getting some (smaller) replacement Oakley Prizms - they really are brilliant!)

    I just spent an afternoon in flat light to whiteout conditions wearing A-frame 2 with bright-light lenses - bad choice this morning
    I went into a shop to look at some prizms
    the guy tried to sell me a pair with two lenses for about $400 - they were impressive but I need to give more thought to a purchase like that
    anyway they were too big for my face and my helmet
    the other pair he showed me were smaller but still about $280
    I think I'll see how it turns out tomorrow with my other goggles and persimmon lenses
