Default goggles help please

hi i now own the anon realm red solex but which i havent picked up yet from a PO box, do any of you own this goggle with the same lens? i heard these lens are not so good for night, just wondering is the red ice lens the best for night? the red ice lens is the one in the watercolor realm goggles.

another question is my gf has high cheek bones small nose and a bigger face than the average girl, what goggles are good for people with small nose and high cheek bones? ive read about the a frames and crowbar from oakley, they didnt reall work, but we've never tried the ones with the J-fit which supposedly have more cushion on the nose, anyone have those?

thanks!



btw for my goggles i just want them for NIGHT thats why i was wondering if i should buy the red ice lens!
new to the forum btw

wisdoms have alot of cushion. what you should look for in her situation is a goggle with a lot of padding and a large profile. something like electric eg1's, or spy omegas. wide and tall. My gf has oakley stockholms and they are awesome, I even wear them sometimes because they are polarized.

Im not familiar with those particular lens. I usually rock a persimmon, or amber lens. sometimes Hi-yellow for night riding but it all depends. I try to stay from fancy shit

the solex lens are the darkest they make, for night riding you need a clear or yellow lens, or even a pink one, no mirror and not dark. nothing with a fancy name basically. usually there is a description of what the lens is designed for somewhere on the manufacturers site.

i have the same goggles with the same lenses. I rock them during the summer and normal winter days, but when it comes to night, i have a 2nd pair with clear lenses.

See if they have a clear (preferable) or yellow lens. These would be best for night riding. A lot of people like Persimmon as well, but I find them too dark for the night.

In terms of sizing of the goggles for your GF, EG1 and VZ Phenoms (what I rock) are, IMO, the best goggles for large faces. However, like boots, it's always best to try them on because everyone's faces are different and fit and comfort will vary widely.

Arent the "Asian" face fitting Oakley goggles more or less for short nose/high cheek bone? Maybe give those a try on her...

I also use Yellow(Oakley Hi-Yellow) for Night riding..and i can use it most days out here in Oregon because its so overcast and dark during the season...i like all the light i can get...but i do have Persimmons i always bring in my bag if the sun sneaks out.

Has anyone had experience with the blue iridium oakley lenses? thinking of getting a pair as they come with the jet black frame and are really designed for sunny days, just wondering how they hold up in cloudy/foggy days as i don't want to get a second lens straight away... using that 50% code from backcountryoutlet, but they only have a vr50 emerald replacement lens in stock, unless that is suitable for the cloudy/overcast days. The lens pdf file says they are designed for low light, but the website says they are designed for bright-med light
