"A nice clean fit once on your face. They disappear and everything feels good."

Smith Squad Mag Goggle Family Basics

The Squad Mag is part of the squad family, which also includes the Squad S, Squad and Squad XL. The Squad Mag combines the ease of the Smith Mag interchangeable lens system with the design of the semi-frame squad series. The mag system features six magnetic contact points and two locking mechanisms. A simple push lever releases the cylindrical lens to allow for a quick lens swap anytime, anywhere. It includes two interchangeable ChromaPop performance lenses to provide unmatched clarity and detail in Alpine conditions. ChromaPop lenses are available in a variety of mirror colors and tints, and three specific categories based on lighting conditions. Sun, every day, and storm lenses, clear vision is further enhanced with AirEvac integration technology to reduce fog. A comfortable fit is ensured with three layers of DriWix face foam.

Smith Squad Mag Goggle Family Tech


Cylindrical Carbonic-X Lens

ChromaPop™ Lens Technology enhances your vision, reducing color confusion and offering clearer, more vivid colors, enabling you to see fine details better.

TLT (Tapered Lens Technology) eliminates visual distortion caused by curved lenses. It tapers the lens from the center to the edges, delivering straight light waves to your eye for clear, undistorted vision. The carbonic lenses, crafted with TLT, are the world's most impact-resistant, ensuring optical precision and high protection.

5X™ Anti-Fog Inner Lens is the best anti-fog lens available, with over five times the absorption capacity of other products.

Includes Bright and Low Light Interchangeable Lenses

Ventilation AirEvac™ Integration Technology Smith's AirEvac ventilation system maximizes airflow, expelling warm, fog-causing air from the goggles. It exits through the top, passing through the helmet's AirEvac system.
Face Foam 3-Layer DriWix Face Foam
Strap Style Wide Silicone Backed Strap, QuickFit Strap Adjustment System with Clip Buckle.
Frame Smith MAG™ Lens Change System offers quick, secure lens swapping with dual locks and 8 magnetic points. A lever push on either side releases the lens as conditions change. Responsive Fit™ frame design flexes to your face's contours for comfort.

Who is the Smith Squad Mag Goggle Family Best Suited For?

Anyone who needs a pair of high-performance, well-fitting goggles with all the bells and whistles. Smith's Family of Squad Mag goggles offers something for everyone. 

Smith Squad Mag Goggle Tester Notes

"My first impression when I pulled goggles out of the box. It's nice that it comes with two lenses and they're two high quality lenses too, so you have a sunny day lens and a low light lens. It's lightweight and integrates nicely with the Smith helmet as well. Just a nice clean fit once on your face. They disappear and everything feels good. One thing that I've really grown to love about these goggles is the magnetic lens change system. You can easily change the lenses on the fly. If you carry a second lens with you on the mountain, you can swap it for a cloudy day or sunny day. Smith Features are ChromaPop technology, which I really like. You get a lot of definition in the low light conditions and lots of pop brightness in the bright conditions. So if you're coming into a jump or a transition and you want to nail that landing, you're always going to be able to see with the goggles. Overall, it's a nice, clean-feeling, lightweight goggle. So if you want a retro look with tech features, the Smith Squad Mag."—Jon
