Shoehorned into the top center of these seemingly normal snow goggles is a 170-degree-lens camera that can take full 1080p HD video and 8mp stills. A below-the-eye viewfinder displays real-time footage and acts as a playback screen, while glove-friendly buttons on the side switch functions. The video it picks up is high quality (as is the sound), and we liked how easy it was to use. But we wish the goggles were a bit more comfortable (several folks had fit issues) and the viewfinder was easier to adjust. Bummer: The rubber USB/SD-card cover popped off within minutes, inviting water in. [$400; zealoptics.com]
