Default Largest field of view goggle 2014/15?

For those of you who went to SIA or ISPO or any other convention, or who didn't but may have come across a 2014/15 catalogue, which goggle claims to have the largest FOV? EG3, Oakley Flightdeck (they are claiming this), Anon M2 or one of the DYE models? Its definitely not Dragon APX or NFX. The lens is deceiving to actual FOV on those. The Oakley Canopy is far larger than the Dragons. Zeal Level had one of the largest FOV's by far this current season

The anon M2 is like #3 on my personal list for FOV..... Hubble is #2.... Electric EG2/3 are #1. Zeal is around #4 or 5 with DYE. Shred had some nice new goggles too that were in line with Zeal and DYE. I would buy smith IOX before any of those three though because they are more comfortable and the optics are clearer, FOV is slightly less though.

None of the Oakley really fit me well so they are far down my list.

The electrics just got it right with the FOV from the start. Their optics could be a little better but fuck it, I just carry a spare lens on snowy days because I know I am gonna fog up with pow shots clogging up my venting.....

I've heard the Anon Comrade and Oakley Canopy are biggest FOV with normal frame style for 2015

Hubbles no contest. It's actually a bit strange feeling having a goggle on and seeing that little amount of frame.

Yeah, I like the Hubble a lot, they just fit so close to my face that I know they will fog easily...right now I only worry about fogging on pow days. They are damn near the eg goggles for fov, I just see a little more nose bridge on them than the electrics.

Every face is different though.

Not buying the M2's as much for FOV but for the ease of changing lenses. That system is slick. Currently using VonZipper Fishbowls and they're almost like not wearing goggles at all. Can't really even see the frames when you're wearing them. The M2's aren't that far behind in that category. Plus, to be honest, VZ's optics pretty much suck ass.

Their optic quality was the first strike against them and the fact that someone from them trolls the shit out of this forum on occasion was pretty much their second and last strike as far as I'm concerned.

Oakleys have just never worked for me. They just don't fit my face at all, I find their surround foam to be itchy, and it's just weird how far they sit from you face. Nothing against Oakley, they simply don't work for me.
