awesome looking goggles but that kind of MSRP is just insane IMHO for goggles. I am a huge proponent of quality eyewear (and an Oakley collector) but I think these are just way overboard. You're paying for an assumed value of convenience.. they look cool, but how can you justify buying one pair of these for the price of, for example, 5 pairs of Grayne Goggles..?

the tech is nice and they look super cool... but the way i abuse and mistreat goggles i should be thrown in jail for crimes against the goggle community... its just way too much money for me to spend just to smash them on some hard ice or a rail somewhere... Now, those Grayne Goggles on the other hand... those got me thinkin...

You wait until they're $80 after the season on the clymb or something similar

ive done that before, its okay..except you generally have limited options on colors and lens choices, besides the fact that I sincerely doubt you're going to see either of these offered anywhere near $80 .. EG2's are $100 less and are rare to find for $80. And EG2's have been around for like 4 or 5 years now.

get them, you will be amazed.

to the goggles. I like good stuff and I don't mind buying quality goggles but at the end of the day we are all just having fun not racing. I myself spend $700 on mountain bike I think is the max amount I would spend yet there are people spend $3k yet never ride them.
its just crazy one would spend over $150 on goggles in my opinion unless money is no object.
I've seen people with $1000 gear just falling leaf down the hill.

I see EG2's in shops that sell off older gear for $85 and thats in Canada too. They are usually $80 on Whiskey Militia and I have seen them go for $60 on there too.

I bought EG2's about 5 years ago for $150 and they are still going strong, even the original lens still doesn't fog. I guess I could buy a shitty $30 pair every year but I still wouldn't have the awesome field of view I get.

I get what your saying with buying gear that seems very expensive, but your paying for way better performance.
