Beeb For what it's worth I used to have issues with my goggles fogging up (anon hawkeye) until I got a new jacket with a higher collar. Have an AK Cyclic jacket now and no issues at all. My old jacket was too big for me and I guess the neck hole let too much body heat out.

justinthorpe Im not sure what they are, my buddy owns a board shop & he got me them for super cheap. They're neither the helix or figment...

Bparmz What model goggle? Helix? Figment?

Both of those are the lowest of the anon line. So yes, you won't get the best performance out of those.

If its either the helix or the figment, then yes, the lowest end model of the line is not going to be the nicest goggle out there.

If its anything higher than the helix or figment, then you got it on sale. Something being on sale does not make it a crappy, cheap goggle.

You must be smoking crack man.. Anon or Burton make some expensive googles.. the M2,M1,Comrade,hawkeye just to name some models. They are all high end goggles. I would never classify them as cheap.

Cheap? what standards do You have...? At least on the local market these (Anon Insurgent) were ones of the most expensive you can find, on the par with top of the line dragon and electric ones. can''t really find spy, smith or oakleys here, in case those are in some kind of other price range, but these costed me about the same as my bindings, which are some decent Ride model

Kevin137 I use Oakley Airwaves, and they do have a problem with fogging sometimes, but then with electronics inside the goggle itself, there will always be an issue with heat as they have a monitor, i can always tell when they are gonna start fogging as the monitor starts to fog 1st... Very easily dealt with by simply removing my helmet, lifting them of my face on to the top of the helmet makes it worse, but it is not very often so i deal with it...

On a flip side, i used to pinball a lot before i broke my back 6 years ago, and i NEVER had that issue, as my goggles had this on them...

When will they come up with something similar for goggles, i mean tech nowadays is so advanced and stuff can be made so small now, that an extra $50 for something that never fogs is definitely worth it in my mind...!!!

Tuan209 Ive got the M2 and a sandbox helmet. Ive only fogged up once but it was my fault for leaving the goggles out in the car overnight so they were wet.

Loving the M2s and wouldnt go back to anything. I have the M2s, IO, APX, and Onset. M2s are my fav with the onset a close 2nd.

scottb7 I got the smith iox with a smith helmet.

Are you kidding of course no fogging.

The helmet actually pulls air out of the goggle.
