well i was always looking for an oversized goggle that didnt have air gaps on the foam for my small face. I'm part of the generation that LOVE the EG2/Fishbowl look. My friend has one and I was jealous to shit of his EG2's.

That's where, for me, the Platoons fit the bill perfectly. Oversized goggles where the foam conforms to every nook and cranny of my face, including the low nose bridge and the gaps beside the nostrils. They didnt really mislead with the foam conforming any face since it does exactly that. About the only place air goes in that goggle is through the vent and up the helmet, which is by design.

Whether or not it's too big for a person is up to them, if they like looking like astronauts with their mirrored lenses, then how low it sits on ones' nose is a moot point at that stage.
