Frequently asked questions about Abom goggles

I live outside of the United States. Can you ship to me?

Of course! We are able to ship to anywhere in the world. Please be aware that all shipping costs, including duties, international taxes, & customs fees are the customers responsibility. 

 

Will they fit in my helmet?

There are many different variables that affect the fit of a goggle—face shape, helmet size, etc. As such, we cannot guarantee the fit of our goggles with any helmet.

However, based on feedback we’ve received in the past, the Abom HEET seems to fit a larger variety of snowmobile helmets than the Abom ONEs, due to its smaller size. The Abom ONE works well with skiing/snowboarding helmets, as do the HEETs, but the ONEs tends to be a bit large for most snowmobiling helmets.

 

What lens color should I get? 

Which lens to choose can vary depending on the conditions your in and your personal preferences. 

If you are mainly out in sunny or bright conditions, colors like the Eclipse Black, Gold Rush Mirror, and Sunrise Red Mirror are the best choices. 

If you are mainly out in darker conditions, colors like the Lumen Yellow, Resolution Red, or Xray Grey or Clear are the best choices. 

For mixed conditions, colors like Flash Green Mirror, Copper Dome, Sky Blue Mirror and Deep Ocean Mirror may be your best choice. 

 

What does "VLT" mean? 

"VLT" stands for Visible Light Transmission. It is a measurement of how much light passes through a lens, and is represented as a percentage (%). For example, if a lens has a 20% VLT, it means that 20% of the light passes through the lens, while 80% is blocked. In other words, a low VLT% is more like sunglasses, while a high VLT% is like reading glasses. 

 

 Do they work with glasses?

Abom goggles are not designed to fit over glasses. However, we do have prescription inserts available for our goggles. 

 

So, these prescription inserts...

The inserts sold from Abom are blank, meaning there is no lens in them. They will need to be taken to your optometrist to have your prescription put in. We also recommend adding an anti-fog coating to the insert, as the heat from the goggle is not enough to keep the inserts fog-free as well. 

 

Asian Fit vs. Standard Fit -- whats the difference?

The only difference between our Asian Fit and the Standard Fit models is the amount of foam padding around the frame of the goggle. The Asian Fit (an industry standard term) goggle has more foam padding around the bridge of the nose, for a tighter seal. 

 

I think there's something going on with my goggles. Can I get them fixed?

Sure! For any issues with your goggle, please contact Abom at general@abom.com, or 503.430.5494. We can help determine whats going on, or open a Warranty claim if we decide we need a closer look. For all returns & warranties, we ask that the customer send in the product. 

 

 Actually, I changed my mind. Can I return my goggles?

We accept returns for refund as long as the goggle has not been used, is free of stains, smoke or perfume odors, make-up, pet hair, & returned in its original packaging. Contact Abom at general@abom.com or 503.430.5494 for more instructions. For all returns & warranties, we ask that the customer send in the product.
