As im reading other peoples reviews, i just have to ask myself one question.... Do you people really know what you are saying??? Some people are complaining about not being able to see the snow, so ummmm change your lense. Not every lense is good for every condition. Especially that when you buy these they usually come with a reflective/persimmon lense. So if you are riding low light, then you need to switch to persimmon, and day riding change to a reflective lense. These are things that if people dont know what they are talking about then dont add it in to your reviews. I have had 2 pairs of the Zeds and so far i have had no problems with them at all. I dont have a super big head(hat size 7 1/4) and these fit just as good as when my buddy is wearing them (hat size 8). they fit perfect under my RED MUTINY helmet, and bec of the crazy flexy material they are made from, they conform true to your face. they dont fog up, the vision is suuuuper clear, and they can take a beating. I wouldnt say that these are the best goggles that spy has out in their line-up, but they are definately top 3. The perripheral vision is crisp and the venting is solid. All in all, depending on the price you pay, its a great goggle to get. and if you do end up with these, you will not be dissapointed at all

Got the black frame with blue spectra lens. Used them in really low light and was very happy with them. They didn't fog up at all. Thought the look of the blue mirror would have only been good in sunshine but it was really solid in flat light. Fit well with red helmet. I had oakleys before and the high intensity yellow lens is better but if $90 is your budget instead of $150 for the oakleys you can't go wrong with these. I haven't tried the 2nd lens yet but that is a pretty sweet bonus.
spy zed googles fit at the pro tec classic snow helmet?

These goggles are wonderful if you can get them on sale at Whiskey or Brociety. If you are planning on paying full price I feel you would be really silly not to go with the Oakley A Frames. The nice thing about these goggles is they DO come with that extra lens. That is great if you are on a budget (who isnt right) and ride day and night. The second lens that came with mine was a night lens and it is fairly easy to switch out. No second lens case though, which sucks because what are you supposed to do with it once you take off the protective plastic film and use it for the first time? Although the field of view on these is much better than I experienced with the Dragons I previously owned, again, they dont compare to the optical correctness of the Oakley A Frames for almost the same price. Fogging is minimal as long as you take care of them. If you are a somewhat experienced rider and are looking for some steezy goggles to get you a date - pick these up! It will work (trust me). If you care more about performance or are planning on getting your first pair of goggles and are paying anywhere near full price - check out the Oakley A Frames.
How do you switch out the extra lens with the lens it came with?

The frame is very flexible so you should be able to pull it apart and the lens will pop out. To put the new lens in, it's usually easiest to start at the bridge of the nose and then work your way around securing the lens into the frame.
Here's a good YouTube video that shows how to do it:

Obviously, you cant go wrong with this price for 2 lenses. Quality is there and so is design. Only thing is I wish they were a little bigger. They are more of just a medium and maybe even a small-medium. Still solid Goggs even if you dont have a small face. Try em out.
I wanna get the grey denim with the persimmon lense. I usually ride powder, with sunny days would this be a good choice? Also, i want something that will not fog up easily and it says these won't fog 'if you take care of them'...what exactly does this mean? I don't plan on scratching them but from normal wear and tear, will i have fog issues later on? Also with the extra lense, can I get a different kind of lense for when I go night boarding or will the extra lense be the same?

Basically 'taking care of them' means that you dont smash them up, dont care, and scratch the shit outta them. If you keep them in decent condition, they will perform as good as the day you got them. These vent very well, have great optical clarity, and have a nice comfortable fit. Persimmon lenses are great for the night, but not so much for the day unless you get mirrored persimmon. They dont look like the 'fire' lenses that you see with Oakleys or VZ, but still have a tint for the day. So those are more of a universal lense that are good for day and alright for the night. They will probably come with a persimmon lense for the night and whatever lense you choose with the goggle(ie, either a mirrored or reflective).Hope this helps

The persimmon is a pretty good night lens under lights, and the grey comes with persimmon and bronze . . . says so right there . . . so yes, the extra lens is a different tint.

These goggles are great, never had a problem with them fogging up or anything. They fit my face perfectly, and while they are fairly large, they aren't so big that they make look like a space alien. The field of vision is fantastic, and the mirrored lens offers crisp and clear vision in bright conditions, yet light enough so you can see even at night. I've taken a few nasty spills where they've flown off my head, and each time they survived unscathed. All in all, solid pair of goggles.

They look sweet and they're all flexy so i feel like they'd fit most people's face. When I wear a helmet they fit pretty well with that too. The only thing I would rather have is the spy soldier but my wallet likes cheaper stuff. I wouldn't suggest using the mirror lens on a cloudy day though, you'll get hurt that way.
I wanna get the trey denim with the persimmon lense. I usually ride powder, with sunny days would this be a good choice. Also, i want something that will not fog up easily and it says these won't fog 'if you take care of them'...what exactly does this mean? I don't plan on scratching them but from normal wear and tear, will i have fog issues later on?

whell, first of all, if you have a big face, ABSOLUTELEY DO NOT GET THEYS. if you wair these with a big face, they will fog up, be uncomfertable, and they will let alot of air in. 2nd of all, just get oakleys there better in every way and you can get them for less $. and last, i have no idia what that one dude meens(this is coming from an experienced rider that owns spy zeds and oakley crowbar goggles.) OAKLEYS ARE SICK AND THEY ARE WAY BETTER!

i love my new goggles. i have a hard time with goggles, i ski with all men, all my friends are men, and when i borrow their goggles, theyre huge on me. even other goggles have been large because i have a small face. these are nice since they bend, and they contour to my face shape. theyre also breathable. not the sickest shit out there right now, but they work for me!
Do these fit decently small? Im thinking about getting these for my sister (woman's goggles are lacking) and just wanted to make sure they arent huge!
December 15, 2009
They will fit your sister just fine. They aren't a super big goggle by any means, but oddly enough they comform to a lot of different sizes of faces. I own 3 pairs of these and I have to say that they are great. So if you want to get your sister these, they would be a good choice. If not go for a Dragon DX or DXS(whitch are smaller) and I guarantee that she will be happy with them. whitchever way you go, you cant go wrong

I just bought these at the mountain. It was a super low light day and all I had were my bright sun goggles. I got the yellowgreenmirror lens in a sweet DCP graphic. I think I got an old style (palm trees and a treeline graphic) but they are great looking and fit over my helmet. Totally comfortable all day and never fogged up at all. I have a medium face and there were no pressure points. I forgot I was wearing them. Happy happy happy! Buy some!

Picked these up on Brociety (Denim with Bronze/Persimmon) and they are awesome. Any fogging I get on the lift disappears as soon as I start riding. The persimmon lens is a great all around, have used it on bluebird days as well as for night riding, worked well in the sun, great at night.
Is the lens spherical or cylindrical? I can't really tell from the pictures...

Neither. These are flat lenses. They frames are contoured to fit the shape of your face though.

got last years zed acid pills green. good goggles. ive got a pair of soldiers that lasted me the last 4 seasons. these vent good and look cool. only downfall with the zeds is unlike my soldiers, which were mirrored so no one could see your eyes, with these lenses people can see rite thru. extra lenses is a plus

My wife loved these gogs. She used them in Australia for a week in August 2010 and they id the job perfectly. She's a new skiier and they fit well and were comfortable. They did not fog up at all. I'd recommend them. The strap around the head is quite tight, so not sure how they would go witha helmet.
February 7, 2010
I have the salvador-shiny purple one and I love the look of it. The goggles may be helmet compatible but I think they'd be better if there was little more length in the straps - it seems kind of tight. I sometimes have problems with the lenses fogging up sometimes without it disappearing.

I just got these goggles a couple weeks ago and iv used them a lot and I love them. They haven't fogged up and I'v received a ton of comments on them. They are really duralbe too, iv crashed hard a couple of times and there is hardly a scratch on them. These goggles are great! I was worried at first about how they would fit compared to the oakleys put they fit just perfect and weren't to tight for me like everyone said. For the money, these goggles are unreal!
October 8, 2009
these goggles look awesome, but are too small for my face... they also look kind of awkward with my giro encore 2 helmet. if you have a smaller face and no helmet i would recommend these, they are very sturdy and have a sweet pattern. now looking for a set of soldiers or omegas. if you wanna swap email me firstname.lastname@example.org

stoked on these goggles, especially for the price on whiskey militia. one thing is that like what a lot of people said the strap is a bit short with a helmet, but along with that these goggles are the best fit i've found with a bern baker helmet
December 18, 2008
Got the white ones with the white/green strap and gold mirror lens, and they are awesome. They look badass, and they fit well and perform great. If there's a lot of light, you might see a bit of your eyes reflecting in the lens, but it's not enough to impair your vision. And the $35 dollar price tag on WM was very nice. Stoked on these goggles, really glad I bought em.
January 2, 2009
awesome! info says they fit a medium/large face but they fit my sorta small face great. wont break, frame is super flexble. the "mirror" lens is only semi mirror but still looks good, and it has okay vission at night. i keep in that one cuz the orange looks sorta weird. good air flow. only complaint is that the strap loosens up sorta easy if you switch from hat to helmet a lot. also, way cheaper than overpriced a-frames and crowbars, and way cheaper if u wanna buy a new lens.

As for function, these are great, they don't fog up much, and I lived in Oregon where it is sloppy wet and sweaty when you hike. Also the multiple lenses is very nice. But, if youre looking for maximum field of view, these are a little small. If you find these on whiskey, snatch em up, cause its a deal! But otherwise, I would recommend oakley or electric simply for field of view.
November 18, 2008
The Spy Zed is a solid goggle. Great field of view, conforms to my face nicely, and has a no-slip rubberized material on the strap to keep them in place. They look real sharp, expect lots of compliments. NO fogging problems, either. Not for medium to large faces, however. I'd say more small-medium. The strap is also pretty short, I don't have an oversized head and I had to max the strap out to get them to fit.

when i got these goggles, at first they seemed pretty cool, but when i wore them up to the mountain they foged up once i ajusted them. also they arnt good for seeing the snow on clowdey days. they are very tough, but oakley goggles are bullet proof, they have the wings for your helmet, the lens are really nice, there much more comfertable, and they are pretty much the best goggles you can buy. and guess what? there onley around $30 more. Talk to a gear ninja about what model you shold get and what kind of lenses for the aria you ride. there all in the price range of $70 to $140 if you want to get the solid collerful lenses(i woldent recomend these bucause you see sploches of diferent collers in the snow while you are riding which cold mess you up really bad)... just go with the oakleys, you will be much more satisfied with them. and there not much more $.
