gonna get new goggles soon and im kinda torn between the Canopy, EG2 and CLK.

what i want out of my goggles:

1. maximum visibility
2. a close second is quality/durability
3. a distant third is comfort
and i don't care about looks at all

i tried on both the Canopy and EG2 and i think the EG2 has just a hair better field of view. but i know oakley is quality brand. i dont know much about electric. are electrics any good? any known problems i should know about? i recently came across the Dye CLKs but i havent tried them on yet. but i have the same concerns with them. are they good? any issues with them? i know they're a top of the line paintball company and i would assume if they can make lenses for their face masks to withstand constant paintball shots and fog that they would be good at making snow goggles. i wasn't even thinking about them until i visited their website last night and saw the CLKs. a quick changing, oversized lens?...that comes with 2 extra lenses (one of them is polarized) for $250!? yes please! any info would be appreciated. also, keep in mind i have a big head and a big nose. to give you a reference, oakley splices are way too small for me

I actually just bought a pair of CLK goggles off Ebay. Used them for the first time this weekend. Came with 2 pair of lenses. Built well. Very comfortable. Excellent visibility. Nice case to hold the goggles plus extra lenses. Lense changing is incredibly easy. Honestly the quickest and easy change I've ever experienced from any goggle system I've used from any sport save for Dye i4 paintball goggles.
But I did have one Con. The HD lenses did fog on me. But in their defense I did wear them the day before in rain and just put them away without ever really letting them dry. I switched in the mirrored pair and had zero issues all day

I haven't tried out the other goggles listed but I do own the EG2. Personally I love them. Great field of view and never had them fog up. The only thing is that I do find they slightly pinch down slightly on my nose. Other than them.

Owning all of those in the past and some currently - i can tell you that my CLK's are the best goggles i have ever owned (and i've owned over 30 pairs) And like Soul said - coming from a paintball background Dye makes incredible products.

One more vote for EG2.
