|lab49232||Your gf you may want to go small on though from Dragon possibly. Smith also makes some small frame goggles. If you have a shop by you anywhere it's worth going and trying on a few pair.|

The APX is HUGE, the APXS is still pretty large. I wear a Large helmet and the APX for one of my setups and its a pretty tight fit, almost not enough room with the brim on my Bern helmet. However the field of vision on these are incredible.
I wouldn't sacrifice going down to the Rogue or DX or anything in that range from Dragon. High quality still sure, but you can find large frame, large field of view goggles for the same price or less than those that are just as nice. Old model EG2s are pretty available and then they have the eg2.5 for a slightly smaller frame like the APXS. There's also Grayne goggles which are super nice and have been really well received on the forum. I have MTNs from them and they offer massive vision but the frame is a tad smaller than my APX goggles so I often wear them on helmet days. I hear with a helmet the Grayne GTOs are the way to go though as the vision is about equal but the outer profile of the goggle is slimmed down.

|lab49232||There are only the APX and APXS currently with the APXS being slightly smaller. Lenses are exactly the same across models as far as color and tinting. However due to the shape and size of lens light transfer will differ. A flat lens like in the NFX will, by the numbers, be different but thats just becuase of the way a cylindrical lens affects light vs a flat lens.|

|kosmoz||And one more thing. I see that same lenses for different models are not actually the same. For example: yellow blue ion: 45-55% light in NFX, 60-70% in AFX, 60-70% rogue, 35-45% D1, 35-45% D2, DX, DXS. Mistake? Or Rogue and AFX are more clear because they have spherical, not only cilyndrical lenses? And this goes not only for Yellow-blue ion, but also yellow, amber etc...|

|Kevin137||I have 4 pairs of Oakley Crowbars, and a set of Airwaves, with the snow 1.5 HUD after the 1st version proved problematic, the 1.5's are even worse, so Oakley are refunding for me...!!!|

|FR4NKY||I usually go back to Dragon. I have a pair or Anons that I don't use often, I also really like my Von Zippers but I go back to the Dragon Alliance. Just most comfortable to me.|

So I decided to go with the EG2's because i like the field of view.
The APX's were nice but when I wore it on compared to the EG2, I could see the foam inside which reduce the vision - which I didn't like
