Goggle With Good Vision - Feenom, EG2, Crowbars?

I'm looking for a goggle with wide peripheral vision. I'm looking at feenom and eg2. Are there any other recommendations?

Yeah, along the line of those Smiths, I have the POC Lobe goggles, they possess crazy periph! Used to own the Oakley Wisdom and they were pretty good as well. Also, Spy just came out with the Apollo-

Lobes:


Apollo:


These are all (including the I/Os) more expensive than other goggles, but there are always deals to be had. I paid $70 for my Lobes on Tramdock-

Smith I/O's if you want to drop the coin on them they are amazing. If you are looking for something on a cheaper side with a nice lense and good perih, look into Annon EagleEyes they are pretty nice. A little light on the foam, but nice goggles none the less.

Also, i am sure you ment to says "Phenom" not Feenom

Apollos are actually smaller than lots.

I pick Ashbury.

I dig the Von Zipper Feenoms. EG2s have a nice periph but the lens feels like it sticks out pretty far. I don't own either, just tried them on.

Being a big fan of Oakley eyewear, I have the Wisdoms. They offer the largest view in Oakley's line. I own three pairs of them and love them but then again I haven't ever had any other expensive goggle so I don't have much to compare them to.
