Good googles for wearing over glasses?

Hi I'm new here. Wondering if you can help me out. I'm looking for a pair of decent goggles to wear over my glasses. I'm trying to find the smallest kinda form fitting ones I can but have no idea what brands are good and which aren't. Thanx for any help.

I know that Smith makes goggles to fit over glasses. I cant remember what models they are though. They make good quality goggles.

i dont have any personal experience with them so i cant recommend any, but there are goggles specifically made for glasses. They are called OTG Goggles (over the glasses). many goggle companies include these in their lineups

Another quick question, What is the difference btween OTG and non-OTG. Just the amount of space inside the goggles, or are their any other big differences?

Just head to your local shop with your glasses on and find something that fits. Just because a model doesnt have the OTG designation doesn't mean it can't fit. Case in point, Von Zipper Feenoms (they fit over my glasses; I snowboard with contacts though).

Space, and OTG goggles usually have slits in the sides of the foam for glasses.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

I just recently bought a pair of Smith Knowledge OTGs for 29.99 on EvoGear. Fit's nicely...my plastic john varvatos frames fit in there nicely! Very comfortable.

Free advice for OTG goggles: The goggle lens is anti-fog coated, but your glasses are not. If you can afford it, get one with the mini-fan built into the frame, they do make them. The fans usually run on a couple of 'AAA' batteries (good for a long while) and REALLY help with keeping your glasses fog-free when you're not moving.

Just spray some anti-fog coating on your glasses (I used the stuff that my dad uses for swimming goggles). But yeah... contacts are so much more convenient if you can do it.
