FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Available in an array of 10 if badass colorways with a variety of lens technologies to match, the Forecast is brand new for Zeal Optics this season. In the penny royal/Phoenix Polarized option we reviewed, this polarized lens is mirrored to further reduce glare. This new-for-2015 goggle also features a dual strap system for versatile adjustments, and the straps themselves are quality constructed for durability and optimum stretch.

FAVORITE FEATURES: There’s pretty much nothing we don’t love about this goggle, which sports a wide field of vision, especially for such a low-profile style. Although it’s not the softest material we’ve ever felt, the moisture wicking foam conforms to your face shape for a comfortable, dialed fit. What we love even more is the lengths Zeal goes to in order to keep your ski day fog free—from the strategic venting system to the impressive anti-fog infusion that happens on a molecular level within the lens material. In other words, this is not a treatment that will wipe off over time; looks like we’ll have to come up with another excuse for mid-run break-taking.

MANUFACTURER DESCRIPTION: For the 2014/15 winter, the forecast calls for heavy snow falls, epic adventures, and maximum clarity through the lenses of the all new FORECAST goggle from ZEAL Optics. With exceptional moisture wicking and a proprietary anti-fog lens infusion, this new frame can sit closer to your face without fogging, creating amazing peripheral vision in a mid-size frame. Married with a wide array of premium polarized lenses including the Polar Auto, which changes with the conditions, the FORECAST is looking good all winter long.
