The Skigee is a small rubber wiper used to remove snow or rain from the surface of goggle lenses. The soft rubber won't scratch goggles*. This is simply one of those essential tools.
- Skigees ship in assorted colors (Red, Black, Green, Grey, Teal, Blue or Purple).
- They can be worn on the thumb but we find it better to attach it to your jacket (a chest pocket zipper pull is a good attachment point) with a bit of cord then stashed in a pocket for safe keeping.
- Sorry, we are unable to accommodate specific color requests, but if you really can't stand a color let us know.
- Sold each.
*Apparently some goggles have a super fancy coating that can't be touched, much less wiped...if the instructions caution against touching the lens then don't use a Skigee on them!

This tool is effective, convenient and inexpensive.
Works great, I keep it attached to the back of my left glove so I can use it with my right hand at any time. I'm in the Northwest, so we get a lot of freezing fog / stick to your goggles schmeng, nothing works better, and no potential damage to my pricey goggles.
If you ski anywhere with wetter snow or humidity these are no-brainer. Saw a patroler with one attached to his jacket with a retractable lanyard and set off to find them online the next day. Can be worn around a glove finger as well.
I use this for when I ride my motorcycle in the rain. Since I live in the Pacific Northwest I use it very often since I ride year round. Highly recommend it.
Hang around your neck. Great for removing wet snow and water from goggles. Saves "wet thumb".
I went skiing several times late into the spring season, and each time, I utilized my Skigee on multiple occasions to keep my goggles free from rain, sleet, or man-made snow.
This little thing came in super handy while I was at Whistler Blackcomb last week. A few of the days it was snowing at higher elevations but by the time I got down to some of the lifts it would be raining. I kept this on my thumb and it was super fast and easy to wipe off any water on my goggles. Last time I went snowboarding in the snow/rain (before having this), it was a total pain in the butt because either my goggles were on but I couldn't see through them or I was getting snow and rain in my eyes. Either way, it slowed me way down. The skigee solved that problem perfectly. This will definitely be a regular addition to my snowboarding gear from now on.
As a note, my husband, who has large hands, had trouble fitting it on his thumb. He ended up just keeping it on a different finger, which didn't work quite as well for wiping goggles off.
I don't know how anyone that skis in the west could do without a Skigee! I have one in the inside pocket of every one of my ski jackets. When the conditions are rain at the bottom the mountain and wet snow at the top, the skiing is usually pretty good and the lines are non-existent. I like these conditions and depend on my Skigee to keep my goggles clear. "Pole-plant, pole plant, goggle wipe" is how you do it. I even have one mounted on the ski pole handle facing up so it is easy to wipe! Get a dozen and use for gifts for your lame ski friends that can't figure out why you like to ski in the rain.
In 1996, I've bought it, at a winter holiday in Canada. When I was back in Germany, I've never get it here. I was so happy to find it and have a christmas gift for our fiends.
Many thanks in advance.
