Question 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.

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)
