More Info

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again, we’ll say it until we’re blue in the face. Oakley knows what they’re doing when it comes to ski goggles. On this note we have, of course, included the Oakley Line Miner in our Ski 100. As you can see, we’re also including the equally good Oakley Flight Tracker. The Oakley Flight Tracker is a real ‘the mountain is your oyster, so get stuck in’ bit of eyewear. It opens up the possibilities on offer and, maybe (just maybe), will make you question how you ever skied without them. A chance to see the mountains in a whole new way? Yes, something like that.


Inspired by Oakley’s first oversized snowsports goggle, the Canopy, the new Flight Tracker has a classic, stylised, shape with an oversized full-rim toric design and excellent field-of-view in all directions. Available in different sizes and engineered to integrate well with most ski helmets, there’s a sense from the minute you first get to grips with it that the Oakley Flight Tracker is made for helping everyone to see everything.  

“The Oakley Flight Tracker is made for helping everyone to see everything”

The goggles are OTG Compatible, and come with discrete frame notches at the temples  that mean they’ll function well with the majority of prescription eyewear products. Speaking of visibility and ‘being able to see’, the Flight Tracker has a low-profile frame design. In layman’s terms, this essentially means there’s far less ‘goggle-ness’ blocking your view of the world around you. This low-profile frame design is also what helps to make it more functional with a greater variety of helmets.

The 360˚ frame venting on the Flight Tracker allows for optimum airflow when worn with a helmet. If you’ve ever worn a cheap pair of ski goggles with sub-optimal airflow (come on, we’ve all been there) you’ll know how frustrating it can be when stuff like this goes against you in the mountains. We also really like how the frame conforms nicely to the wearer’s face and remains flexible even when the temperature drops down to extreme lows. This will be especially comforting to know if you’re the type to spend long days out in the backcountry, away from the warmth of a log-fired food and drink establishment. 

“It’s a technology that blocks certain wavelengths on the colour spectrum to maximise contrast between colours”

Oakley’s Prizm Lens technology is ideal for skiers and snowboarders who love charging about on snow-covered terrain. It’s a technology that blocks certain wavelengths on the colour spectrum to maximise contrast between colours The obvious benefits of this in skiing environments where, especially on days when the clouds have rolled in and it can be difficult to pick out approaching obstacles, are plain to see. Oakley really hyped this lens technology up when it first arrived on the scene and, to be fair to them, it has certainly lived up to that fanfare. Believe the buzz, and all that.

Elsewhere, while we’re on the subject of lenses, a special mention for the HDO Lens Technology, which maximises clarity and impact resistance. HDO lenses provide 100% UV filtering, and some of the toughest impact resistance in the business. What else? Well, we hate fog and, because of this hatred, inevitably love that F3 Anti Fog coating on the inner lens. It absorbs moisture and eliminates haze magnificently well. The lenses here are easily changed as well, meaning you can efficiently switch in your favourite one based on what the conditions are doing. 

“The Oakley Flight Tracker is a superb option in the crowded ski goggles market”

Some final thoughts regarding this product’s features. The adjustable strap with silicone lining ensures a secure fit, and means you can attack your day in the hills safe in the knowledge that your goggles aren’t going to start dancing about on your head. The triple layer polar fleece foam, meanwhile, is moisture-wicking and delivers a comforting feeling on your face from first lift right on through until last lift.


The Oakley Flight Tracker is a superb option in the crowded ski goggles market. Its price point might make it feel like a bit of a hefty investment but, if you are serious about your skiing and making the most of your time in the mountains this winter, it’s an item that comes recommended. Seize the day, see (almost) everything, and start shredding.
