And was looking at the apx and eg2,but not sure if they would fit with my helmet. Did you try them with a helmet ?

Im happy with my Oakley Splice's tried on the Dragon APX's and I/O's and they just didnt seem as comfy, I tried them all on at a Ski-faire and liked the way they changed lenses easily. got for £78 which i thought was a pretty good deal compared to most UK prices
Best advice, i can give? use these forums to pick the top 3 to 5 goggles you want to check out then go to a shop and try them on. Only you can decide!

|ShadowCloud04||I have some Electric EG2 and I really like them. They have a very large field of view and in my opinion they look amazing. Mine are also compatible with my bern watts helmet.|

I was at Keystone this past weekend and was finally about to try on all the helmets/goggles I had been reading about:
Electric EG2 and EG2.5
Initially, I thought I'd go there and leave with a pair of EG2 gogs, but after trying them on I was pretty thrown from them. Like some of you have already mentioned, they are huge...and not in a good way. The peripherals seemed no better than my old Spy Soldiers except for looking up (which is pointless imo). I felt like the EG2.5 gog was a much better fit size wise, and has the same down and side peripherals as the EG2. As mentioned above, the foam on these was way larger than needed. Less foam puts a goggle closer to your face and therefore better view right???
The Smith I/O seemed no better than my old Spy Soldiers. I think it's silly how they advertise frameless when really the frame is just on the inside of the lens.
The Dagon APX also did not excite me very much. I tried on the large and the small version. The foam was way too thick and the peripherals were nothing to brag about.
For now I'm sticking with my Spy Soldiers, not because I think they are the best goggle on the market, but because I can't justify some of these newer goggles as $100+ better.

tried the I/O and and didn't like them. Excellent optics, but the sensor mirrors kept fogging between the lenses. At first, I thought it was just a defective lens, but 3 different sensors later and still the same problem. I also had to wear the frame kinda high in order for them to fit my nose right...which puts too much of the frame bottom and nose piece into view.
tried the EG2. They seemed ridiculously huge, but I really hated the thickness of the face foam and how far it pushes the lens away from the face. Also tried the VZ Skylab. Same overly thick face foam issue and the peripheral vision was actually quite bad. Both goggles seem geared closer to asian faces or people with tiny noses.
going to the store to try on goggles is a pita. They have them locked, so you need a salesperson and they're frequently impatient/rushed because of other customers. You may need to buy them, try them...then return them.
I'm hoping zeal works better for me

|linvillegorge||Gotta agree with Sass regarding polarized lenses. I quit using the polarized lens in my Smith Phenoms after damn near killing myself with near bails at high speed when I hit ice patches I didn't see coming. Ice on the slopes is invisible through a polarized lens.|
