Say Goodbye to Foggy Ski Goggles

And hello to the F-Bom, the world's first snow goggles with active anti-fog technology.

Skin up a mountain or rip through the powder, and you’re going to sweat—and your goggles are likely going to fog.

That’s why Abominable Labs created the anti-fog F-Bom ski goggles. The F-Bom has a metal heating element that’s less than one billionth of an inch thick inside its Carl Zeiss lens. The transparent heater covers the entire lens, but you can’t see it.

The F-Bom has two modes when it’s powered up: high and maintenance. Turn it up to high to clear the goggles or leave it on maintenance to keep the lens fog-free in the first place. In maintenance mode, the lithium ion battery will hold a charge for about seven hours, according to Abominable Labs. If you leave the F-Bom turned off, it will hold a charge for weeks. 

Our favorite feature: bump the goggles up to max power after a face plant, and the lens melts back to full visibility in seconds. Recharge through the micro USB port. Available during the 2015/16 winter season, but you can preorder through Kickstarter now
