My son is 10 and I got him some 2.5s. They are a little big, but not to the point where they look silly. He actually gets a lot of comments on them and they were a killer deal at ~60 on whiskey.

I have a smaller head though usuallly end up with a medium in most sizes and they are a little bit small on me but would have no problem using them if I needed.

Oh really ? I'm considering this exact combo and I wasn't sure if the two would fit together well.

I can't find either locally, so I was thinking of getting them online. I've got a 59cm head circumference, which puts me right on the edge between M and L for the Combyn. I'll try an M and exchange for an L if it's too small. What size helmet do you wear with your Vices ?

EDIT: I checked my last rental helmet and it was a (very old) Smith Maze in size L (I think it said 59-62cm). It fit perfectly. I don't know how that translates into Giro sizing - anyone care to guess whether an M, or an L would be the best first guess ? I'd rather avoid sending it back to exchange for a different size... The M sounds tempting, because I want the smallest form factor possible.

VonZipper Did you happen to ever pick up a new pair of goggles? Personally I wear a large Combyn with the Fishbowl. I've got a pretty big head and it works for me. If you have a medium size helmet, our Feenom N.L.S. or Skylab might work better. We're not too familiar with the sizing of EG2 and EG2.5 but those could work too. If you've gotta order them online, take a stab in the dark and return them if they don't work out.

VonZipper is yours.. If you want it.

Big Foot I have a big head and tried on all of the big goggles. Out of all the large goggles availible as of summer 2012, the Fishbowls were by far the most comfortable. I have a Giro Revolver helmet and the fishbowls fit underneath the lip so there is actually a negative gap (helmet overlaps the goggles).

I own both, and needless to say, the EG2's are collecting dust on my desk.

EG2 are a liiittle bit less wide, but about equally high as fishbowls, so essentially they look equally big. IOX are about the same size, but look slightly smaller overall than fishbowls...

I tried a bunch of lenses and EG2 and Dragon were slightly too narrow for me... Fishbowl fit perfect and Smith IOX fit really good, but i find the fishbowls conform to my face better because the frame is soft. Oakley canopy fit me well, but the frame was too wide and not tall enough, so I didnt like it.

For your reference i wear a sz L Bern Watts helmet and use both IOX and Fishbowls. But each face, nose, cheeks are different....
