A relatively new brand in the sunglass and goggle market, Haber Vision is backed by two former Bolle executives who have jumped back into the industry with products they believe the market needs. Haber Vision is an online-only retailer with high-quality products at excellent prices.
I’ve had the new Highline snow-specific goggles on-hand for testing over the past month. When I got them, I was impressed with the overall quality and the clarity of the optics. Slipping them on, the Gun Flash spherical and polarized lens offers just the right color for most light conditions.
On the hill, the Highline goggles offer fog-free, no-fuss performance and fit well. I’ve enjoyed fog-free performance in the backcountry and inbounds on cold/cloudy and mixed sun days.
The frame itself fits my medium-sized face and nose well. With a helmet, the nose does pinch my nasal passages just a tad, but not any worse than 90% of the goggles on the market. It must be the helmet/goggle combo on my face that causes me issues in this way–oh well, I’m used to it.
The hinged strap attachments keep the goggles sitting flat on your face whether you use a lid or a beanie. I missed having a strap clip, but it’s not that big of a deal once you get the goggles on.
