Goggle recommendations

Hey guys!

Currently on the search for new goggles! Was hoping if you guys could recommend a few.

I had done a bit of research on Oakleys but I don't think they're worth while purchasing due to its price tag and functionality.

I was also considering Electrics, Anon, Spy, Dragons - possibly something that is wide lens.

I wanna know what you guys think. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

i've had all sorts of brands but always go back to oakley. i know they are pricey but to me well worth it as they are the best fitting, best looking, have the most options for lenses and now (IMO) have the best lens switching system. I've got brand new oakley air brakes and they are probably my favourite piece of gear.

I too was really keen on purchasing the Airbrakes however I tried them on in asian fit (fit better on me) and in Australia, it is very difficult to purchase asian fits with the lens I wanted.

By the way - what kind of field of view do Airbrakes have?

I got my Oakleys from Steep and Cheap, so not too pricey. I think they're pretty done with winter now though.

The absolute best goggles in the game are swag goggles. Try to score them at all cost.

The 2nd best is the ultra discount item.

The newest $300 pair are cute for fashion show at the chalet, however, especially if you spend double for the HUD.

Narrowed my search down-

Looking at EG2's or APX - alternatively EG2.5's or APXs (depending on physical fitment)
