Default List of goggles with wide periphal view?

I just received my Von Zipper feenoms and while they are great goggles, they just dont fit my face. They pinch my nose and it makes it hard to breath through them, so Ill have to return these. Now I would like to try on some goggles now before i buy them but I was wondering if I could get some suggestions on goggles with the best peripheral view, Im looking at the Electric EG2s, what else should I look at?

thanks

I just ordered some Oakley Wisdoms to replace my battered A-frames. From what I've read it's either love or hate, but they're supposed to have a pretty large peripheral view. Haven't gotten them yet so I can't tell you first-hand.

I fit the Dragon DX goggles well, does anyone have pics of the Electric EG2s nose bridge so I could compare to my Dragons?

Do the Oakley Crowbars have a good field of view?

Crowbars, if anything, have a more regular field of view.

They're a medium sized goggle for the masses.

The electric EG 1's are nice as well, but expensive.

The EG2's pinch my nose like your feenoms. Not so much that it makes it difficult to breath but more so than my spy soldiers. I'll try and post a pic when I get home from work if noone else does.

I've done a lil research and from what I can tell the EG2's may be the best out there for periphal view, i'm surprised that there are not more choices...

The EG2's a a bit pricey for me though
