Lacrosse season is finally upon us. Among new uniforms, coaches’ polls, and that fresh smell of turf, STX dropped their 4Sight Form goggle. And if you ask me, the 4Sight Form deserves just a bit more attention.
The 4Sight Form comes in nine different hues and the limited edition black on black are as fresh as you can get. As a club player, I’m allowed to rock electric blue to match my the rest of my gear. The Electric Blue, Lizard Green and Black-on-Black are the only ones to feature black goggles; traditional sets like Slate, Carolina, Navy, and Red have the familiar STX silver cage. Aesthetically, I wouldn’t change anything except for the two screws (one on each side) just above the eyebrow.

One (1) STX logo’d draw-string storage pouch
Pros: lightweight and functional, with soft arms, in comparison to the strap-only style that so many players are used to. The X-Static liner, much like an athletic “tech” tee adds unparalleled comfort and sweat-wicking abilities. I don’t have any of the usual facial break-out woes that accompany a new pair of goggles. The single strap on the back features dual layering, so on-the-fly adjustments are easy to make. No more of that one strap above, one strap below the ponytail or braid!
Cons: This pair could be an issue for players with smaller nose bridges. The 4Sight Form has a unique nose “brace” that fit most of my college-aged teammates’ faces, but it wasn’t optimal for those with narrow nose-bridges (I’m in this category, unfortunately). The lower profile of the goggle also makes for a less prominent nose guard, but a seasoned player shouldn’t have any issues.
Eastbay sells for $89.99, and I’ve seen other retailers may sell for more. Colors vary by store, and, like most products, I’d recommend trying them on before purchasing, particularly for younger players. Overall, I recommend these goggles for most players.
