I have the Platoons in both the Herschel and Occult colorways. That should tell you how great the styling and quality of the Platoons really are, that it's worth buying again.

Pros:
Probably the only oversized goggle that I've tried that fits my Asian face. Smith IO doesnt fit, EG2s DEFINITELY don't fit, same with VZ Fishbowl.

Awesome colorways.

Free low light (NIGHT!!) lens with a VLT of 86%... it's pretty damn close to a clear lens that has a VLT of 96% i think, so no need to buy a low light for ~$40

Easy to replace lenses. Well at least popping them out is easy. Putting a new one in takes a fair bit of balancing which sides of the frame to attach first.

Cons:
Collab editions are pricey ($160-180).

For me, the fitted oversized vision+free night lens is what sold me on the Spy Platoons.
