Question Goggles for Large faces?

I need to find some goggles for a large face... I have a rediculously wide shaped head so when I wear medium sized goggles it reduces my peripherals. I need to find some large goggles for a wide sized face. So far I've been looking at the Oakley crowbar but im not sure if thats oakleys biggest goggle. Ive also looked at the Von Zipper Feenom. anybody else have this problem????

I think the VZ are wider than the the Crowbars and provide better peripheral vision. You may also want to look at Electric EG2.

Yeah EG2's are massive and would fit for sure it deffinetly a good frame. Sucks that electric doesnt make that great of a lense. I was considering the oakley crowbars because i have a 55% discount at oakley.

crowbars are not wide (fit is a standard medium; smith phenoms fit a bit wider)

von zipper feenom is big

smith prodigy is big

if the peripheral was there to match, quiksilver goggles would be perfect

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

.....an oldie but a goodie...

I have a big head. XL helmet to prove it.

I have a pair of SPY goggles, but I find them to be a little small.

I'm looking for something a bit bigger, and am wondering if the oakley Airbrake or Splice are any bigger.

Anyone have these goggles?

Wrong section, but...

I have a huge and wide head. I bet mine is bigger and wider than yours (yes, that was intentional).

The goggles I have on in my Avatar have great peripheral vision. The problem with these though (and with most others), is that there is a gap between the sides and my helmet. Looks silly on top of me catching a breeze there. They are Spy Platoons. Love them.

Other goggles to consider:

Oakley Canopy

Dragon APX

Smith I/O

Giro Onset <--- this one deceivingly offers wide peripheral vision so make sure you try it on before judging the cover.

Electric EGs are massive so if you wear a helmet, be sure to check if they fit properly with it.
