Bollé Emperor Photochromic Goggle Review

Bolle Emperor Goggle Review

Bollé makes some of the best goggles and sunglasses in the world, hands down.  If you’re not currently using these optics,  you’re really missing out.  I’ve had the pleasure of testing out Bollé sunglasses and goggles over the past few years and was especially pleased with their latest offering, the Bollé Emperor Goggle.

Bollé Emperor Goggle Review

Bolle Ski Goggles

Starting with the optics, the Emperor Goggle is available in Green Emerald photochromatic lens that quickly adapts to changing lighting conditions in the mountains.  The lens works incredible for skiing and riding in flat light conditions, on deep powder days and especially gray bird days.  For true bluebird sunny days, I usually pick another pair instead of as this lens is focused on improving contrast and allowing you to see contour lines and fall lines in the mountain you normally wouldn’t be able to pick up.

Air flow’s nice through the Emperor Goggle thanks to EQUALIZER® VENTS and FLOW-TECH® VENTING. When combined with Bollés P-80+ Anti-Fog Layer, you have a goggle that will be practically impossible to fog up.

Overall Impression

With a huge field of vision (180 degrees) the Bollé Emperor Goggle will make everything around you look that much better, clearer and crisper.  Having made optics for the outdoors since 1950, Bollé has been up and down in popularity over the years.  Most likely if you were around in the 80’s jumping back into a pair of Bollé Goggles will feel like reuniting with a best friend.

For everyone else, you’re truly missing out on some darn fine optics from Bollé.  The Bollé Emperor Goggle ($169) offers an affordable price for a high-end optics.  With 15 styles of the Emperor Goggle available, there are tons of lens options that pair nicely for just about every lighting condition imaginable.

Once you try Bollé it will be hard to wear anything else.
