Julbo Starwind goggles RRP £165 - £175
The Starwind offers another take on Julbo’s excellent Super Flow System, which eliminates fogging with a mechanism that allows you to pull the lens forward, letting air flow in to keep it clear; this is particularly useful when you’re skinning up a slope or standing in a steamy gondola on a snowy day. When you’re ready to descend, you simply snap the lens back in place and off you go. I’ve been using this system for two seasons and think it’s great.
The Starwind also has a ‘Minimalist Frame’ design, which gives a very wide field of vision, and it comes with Julbo’s ‘Zebra Light Red’ photochromic lenses in NXT lens material, with a red tint that accentuates terrain relief. One final touch that I also liked was the goggle bag, which incorporates a flexible lens protector – a simple and sensible idea but not something I recall coming across before.
FOR Excellent, versatile goggles for all conditions
