Question Goggles?????????????

Hey i need some goggles. I have a small to medium sized head and want a goggle that looks sweet, has mirrored lenses that arent too dark, a good field of vision and is easy to change lenses. Please give me your suggestions. Thanks in advance

What conditions are you looking to use these goggles?

Mirrored lenses tend to be darker because they are made for bright light. So if you want goggles that aren't dark, for snowboarding at night, you don't want mirrors. I'd suggest a rose tint. If you're out in the sunny daytime, maybe a mirrored persimmon. I use both of those lenses for those occasions and they work well.

As for the ones that fit you best, hit up a shop and try a bunch on. SPY's are my personal favorite, but you may prefer something else.

There are 100's of goggles that can fit those needs, time to do some research! Just stick to the known brands (smith, oakley, dragon, anon, sinner etc.), choose your price range and read the reviews.

I say just research around and go to your local shop and try some on to see what brands fit your face the best.

I agree with Wolf on buying two pairs. My regular goggles are a really nice pair of $120 SPY goggles. I bought some cheap $30 Dragon goggles for night boarding because I don't need them very often.

If you really want versatility, there are some lenses that can work in most situations pretty well.

well ive tried on many pairs of goggles and havent found any that i havent liked ive tried on the ones that ive been looking at like oakley splices, dragon rogues, anon realms, and figments. the only one i havent tried on is the smith IO. I cant afford to buy 2 pair but i can afford to buy an extra lens so would changing lenses really be that much of a problem and should i go with the IOs since they have an easy change lens system to suit my wants and needs. Just give me your opinion please i dont want to hear "just go try them on" or "its up to you or its your personal preference"
