I have Smith “Prodigy” goggles. One nasty white-out day at Vail, my lenses got all fogged up. At the end of the day, I brought them in the house and dried them out. Now there are water spots on them. When I used a buff cloth to try to remove the spots, I found out that they were neither on the outside or inside of the lens, but actually BETWEEN the outer and inner lens. Upon removing the lens from the goggle, I found out that Smith has a second lens set into a rubber-like material around the perimeter of the main lens. I can’t separate the two lenses.
Any suggestions on how to clean off the water spots?February 17, 2009 at 6:44 am #614325bigdoodParticipant
Hmm….not real sure actually. Did you happen to blow out the foam/gasket that connects the two? If so they may warranty the lens. I’d give Smith a call regardless, they have good customer service and can probably give you some advice.February 24, 2009 at 8:30 am #614326peacefrogParticipant
Definitely check into the warranty option. I live in rain forest so moisture is always an issue. When I get any between the lenses of my Oakley’s I set them on my Peet boot drier.February 27, 2009 at 7:32 pm #614327CamginaParticipant
time for a new lensMarch 12, 2009 at 5:20 am #614328dude_reinoParticipant
I shelled out the cash for a polarized lens. I wear polarized in all my sunglasses so I figured might as well keep it constant with the lens.
I love it. The depth detail is just incredible, and the rose color is great in all conditions. Icy spots actually “glow” pink.March 21, 2009 at 2:22 am #614329ikkinParticipant
definitely call smith and see what they can do warranty-wise. i’ve warrantied smiths for similar issues and they just sent me brand new goggles. turnaround time was pretty quick. great customer service over there.
