Scott LCG ReviewOctober 10, 2013
- Up there with the largest fields of vision in the industry
- Quick and straightforward lens-change system
- Cozy fit against medium to wide faces
- An extra lens is included, with a form-fitting, molded carrying case for your jacket pocket
- Even the black lens still left me squinting on bluebird days
- The lens-change system wasn’t flawless; a few times it took a bit of tinkering to achieve an adequate seal with the new lens over the bridge of the nose
The LCG is intent on challenging Oakley’s Airbrake for the title of best interchangeable-lens goggle on the market. It’s not there yet.
Goggles like the LCG aren’t cheap. But more often than not as a goggles consumer, you get what you pay for.
No real problems here. There is plenty of air between your eyes and the inner lens, and the goggle breathed well on my face.
Field of Vision
One of the widest in any ski or snowboard goggle. This is perhaps the biggest advantage for the LCG when compared with the Airbrake.
One of the goggle’s shortcomings is a lack of any affixed point from the lens to the frame above the nose. If that gets compromised in a crash (i.e. if the lens bows out for even a moment), snow infiltrates the seal and floods the goggle’s interior.
Among the best-fitting goggles I’ve tested. This goggle is not for thin faces, though.
Look and feel
The look is slightly bug eyed and loud, but it’s also sleek and in line with the latest trend in goggle design. Very comfortable eyewear overall.
