Initially, I thought I'd go there and leave with a pair of EG2 gogs, but after trying them on I was pretty thrown from them. Like some of you have already mentioned, they are huge...and not in a good way. The peripherals seemed no better than my old Spy Soldiers except for looking up (which is pointless imo). I felt like the EG2.5 gog was a much better fit size wise, and has the same down and side peripherals as the EG2. As mentioned above, the foam on these was way larger than needed. Less foam puts a goggle closer to your face and therefore better view right???

The Smith I/O seemed no better than my old Spy Soldiers. I think it's silly how they advertise frameless when really the frame is just on the inside of the lens.

The Dagon APX also did not excite me very much. I tried on the large and the small version. The foam was way too thick and the peripherals were nothing to brag about.

Conclusion:
For now I'm sticking with my Spy Soldiers, not because I think they are the best goggle on the market, but because I can't justify some of these newer goggles as $100+ better.

I have a bern helmet like this one https://www.google.ca/search?q=bern+...0&bih=356#i=17

And was looking at the apx and eg2,but not sure if they would fit with my helmet. Did you try them with a helmet ?
