As an avid snowboarder and gear watcher, I would avoid these. Go onto another site, like www.whiskeymilitia.com that actually sell decent ski goggles at discounts. Like Bolle, Smith IO, Dragon, etc for like $50 - 60 bucks. I always buy off season. A decent pair are around the $120 range, as most decent things in snowboarding are over $100. You may not see too much difference between a $110 pair and a $50 pair (except comfortability and a little bit of viewability), but you will definitely see a HUGE difference between a $20 pair and a $50 - $60 pair. I promise.
Has anyone actually got some real input on how good these are for regular skiing on the slopes, how comfortable and vision on good and poor visibility conditions?
When you you are 9000ft elevation riding down the blacks, when that blizzard billows over and the only thing standing between you and a complete whiteout is your goggles. When the shit hits the fan and your visibility deduced to watching your own thumbs twiddle, you are gonna put your life on the line for a 15$ goggle? because you're too stingy for real gears? No thanks I'll stick with my $300 Oakleys.

P.S. The photoshoped pictures aren't great btw.

No, I didn't fall "head over heels" for marketing. I'm not stupid, I can spot one for miles when I see them. Everything I've listed are real technology used in optics, you need to brush up your science if you think they are just "gimmicks". Every brand can call them whatever they like, I'm not here to argue that, that's called branding, but the underlying technology remains. If you think glasses and lenses are just tinted piece of plastic film, and everything is "marketing gimmicks" you are out of your minds buddy. I've worn glasses and avid photographer myself, done my research and my field experience backs that, I'm sure most glasses wearers will also tell you that a decent pair of glasses is going to be costly (and if you actually understand the technology behind it you would know why as well). Stuff like anti-glare coatings/anti-static coatings/oleophobic coatings, polarizers, transition lenses aren't just "marketing", they are essential for a good pair of optics.

P.S. I didn't say YOU shouldn't be getting them, hell, you could get whatever you like for all I care, I said >>>I<<< wouldn't get them, without directing at anyone in particular, if you think you can express your opinions, so should I, and get worked up "head over heels" about it.

As much as I like different perspective on all topics, your views are little extreme. If you toned it down, you could have made a valid argument and pretty solid point. Oakley as a brand under Luxottica is always going to be overpriced and quality would not be an issue but for people who want to save money and go for value, the real question we should be asking is this a good product for casual skiing on the slopes for double blues runs and other weekend trips to the snow. Most of the people looking for a pair of googles are just looking to use it once a year and if you provided some input into this it would be great as you tried and tested their products. Just my opinion, take it easy.
I'd also like to know if there's a pair that'll fit over glasses.

I wonder if maybe they'll add the glasses version? New to Massdrop. I also have some ridiculous John Lennon glasses just for this purpose.

They never do on Massdrop from what I've seen. The only time I've seen product updates on drops is when the vendor/manufacturer adds something themselves, such as color variants in very specific items that have dropped.

These goggles also look fairly low profile compared to other frames I've seen, which makes it even less feasible to use regular (non-insert) glasses underneath due to the curvature of the lens.
Looks like Stage makes one (just one!) style for use over glasses, they call it OTG:

and it does not appear to be in the drop.

He's correct. It's the Stage OTC model: STG2026H, and their price is $ 49.99
Interestingly, it's available in vented and non-vented versions. But, they don't describe the differences or there effects.
How do these go for people who wear Prescription Glasses. I wear smaller sized glasses.
