New Goggles
 
I have noticed there are a lot of sweet deals going on now for snowboarding goggles, and I am in the market to get a new pair. Any suggestions?? I would say I have a small to medium sized face if that helps.

There are a ton of great options out there, it really depends on how much you want to spend.

Are we talking online deals?

Anyone have an actual guide for sizing for the various brands? s/m/l seems a bit meaningless without points of reference.

It's all pretty much relative when you get down to fitting. Just like boots. Go down to a shop and try some on or find an online store with free return shipping.

FWIW, I am selling a pair of BNIB Smith IOS which supposedly fit a small-medium face:

I personally think Oakley use to make the most solid gog. Now they've been under a new co for 2-3yrs now.

Wonder if the new Nike goggles coming out next year would serve purpose...

I really like the Smith IOX. Haven't fogged once, have a large field of view and the lenses are easy to change.

As others have said best thing to do is head to a shop and try some on. I've owned a few pairs over the years started out with oakleys which were always pretty reliable. I replaced them with dragon apx's which I found a pita, the lenses got damaged really easily and fogged up. I then got some oakley airbrakes which are really comfortable but do fog up once in a while on long hikes and i've just got some smith io/x as a backup pair in the sales as they were a steal. Build quality seems good and the reviews all seem pretty positive.

Have you ever had goggles that didn't fog up while hiking? If so, let me know which. I never hike with goggles (even sunglasses fog up hiking)
