In product reviews, wearers noted the tight “swim-goggle” fit of the Boogie Regulator Goggles, which means these goggles aren’t going anywhere, even in the most active and harsh conditions. While this tight fit is a benefit for some individuals, it exists as a drawback for some who experience an almost “too tight” fit even with an average head size. Some found they had to extend the strap to its limit to make them not overly tight. To be fair, Smith does offer strap kits with larger straps.
Users also note the “very good optics” that provide clear vision during even the most rigorous activities like mountain biking or ATV riding. The lenses come in either a clear lens, gray lens or the Ignitor lens. A clear lens provides the highest VLT (visible light transmission) and is the most common lens color for indoor use. A gray lens is the most common tint for sunglasses, especially those for general-purpose use to effectively dim surroundings with minimal color distortion. The Ignitor lens excels in flat light conditions by increasing contrast, but works well in both light and dark conditions.
Another feature, the ventilation, works to combat fogging and make the goggles especially useful in wet or damp conditions. For some individuals though, the air vents opened too much at high speeds and made eyes water excessively. However, individuals who sweat a lot may find this added airflow beneficial.
Another helpful feature available on the Regulators is the Boogie Shock Cord/Velcro Kit with a bungee-style cord that attaches to helmets. The strap is designed to work with a variety of helmet configurations and comes in black or tan.
All in all, the Boogie Regulator Goggles provide solid fit, excellent optics and maximum protection for an overall positive user review.
