Native’s Mission Goggles were an immediate hit with our female testers. Despite being a unisex goggle, the Mission fits small to medium faces quite well and can easily be snapped onto a helmet, as they are helmet compatible. The Mission’s feature a double spherical polarized lens that comes in either an Amber or Chrome Reflex tint. We tested the Chrome Reflex lens and found that it was a great all-purpose lens for sunny to partly cloudy days, or on the last runs in the afternoon: the Chrome Reflex has a 35% visual light transmittance rating. For white out conditions, or other low light situations, Native throws in their SportFlex lens free of charge. We loved the Lock Jaw lens changing system. We were able to easily interchange lenses without feeling like we were destroying the frame in the process. If you are a novice when it comes to swapping lenses, the Native website has a handy video demo to help you out. The Mission also has three layers of face foam, which we found extremely cozy on frigid morning runs and made wearing these goggles all day a comfortable venture. Testers reported some fogging and a small gap between their goggles and helmet when worn with older helmets (more than 3 years old). Overall, Native brings you a great deal (retailing $130) in the Mission goggles; polarized lenses, a low-light option, and a great carry bag to protect your goggles and increase their life.
