I am a HUGE Oakley Dan and collector but they are honestly not my favorite company for goggles .
I have 3 pairs of Oakley goggles - Elevate, Splice and A-Frame and I wear my Electric EG2's way more often . Oakley has excellent lenses (the technology outdoes everyone else IMO) but they feel too small for me. I have a smallish head but I like big canopy style lenses like the EG2, Dragon APX, Smith IOX and Von Zipper Fishbowls. I haven't tried the Fishbowls but the EG2's are by far my favorite goggle that I've worn.

I don't have a very big face at all and I wear the IO/X. They fit perfectly with no gaps or anything- picked the IO/X because I wear glasses.
Best bet is to try in store.

All made by the same 2 companies so it's not that big of a deal.
Expensive lenses are expensive for a reason, you gotta think about the kind of riding you want to do. IOs are nice because some mountains, like mammoth, the lighting changes so much it's a lot harder to ride in the afternoon so it's nice to be able to change lenses within a minute.
Some people don't notice it but it pisses me off when the sun goes behind the mountain and everything looks the same, i can't stand not being able to see bumps when it gets icey.
So anything within the top tiers of each brand = plenty good.

I love my Oakley airbrakes...
Many people buy the I/OX because they like over sized goggles.

|sclogger||Just pick a model I/O. IOs small head. IO medium/large. IOX huge noggin. I think the I/Ox kinda looks ridicously with jsut a beanie. if you sporting a helmet the helmet helps mask the hugeness.|

|sclogger||Finally splurged on some Smith I/O the other day. Extremely impressed. I used to buy my goggles like I do sunglasses, cheap cause I'll lose em or break em. Glad I finally ponied up for some Smiths. I usually sweat lik ea pig and fog up almost instantly. Didn't have the slightest hint of fog on a Rainy day with temps in the 40's and me being overlayered.|
