The Snipers certainly have an appealing price. The triple silicone strip on the strap keeps them in place, and articulates within the frame enough to help get a better fit. The frame is big enough to provide a wide, uninterrupted field of vision and the lens includes an anti-fog coating. They’re also tear-off ready.
We did find the frame slightly big when using them with Troy Lee D2 or D3 helmets, so the contact between face and foam wasn’t perfect – but that’s not the case with all helmets. The twin foam lining is quite thin, so they’re not the comfiest.
