Big ASS Goggle fight

So basically i hate seeing the edge of goggles. I had some basic Dicks sporting goods/ zumiez smith and oakleys. I tried on a pair of some EG2s and was like "Good looorrrd i have been saved" I didn't know they made goggles with that big of a lens. Its just stupid huge. yes i know im late on finding these.


Questions
Who elese makes big gigantic goggles like these? they fit my big face and i could see EVERYTHING. also the lens was like a mirror ish thing. it was cool. they were 160. and i was like......maaan.

So who else makes big googles like this that are awesome. and where can i get them for less than 160? Also i always have issues with fog (place goggles on head because they are uncomfortable) hows the anti fog on these and where is a good place to hold your goggles if they aren't on your face? (around neck?)

Some basic questions. Im also super hyped because Upstate NY got snow. So yea let me know

the only other thing like the EG2 is the POC Lobes, and maybe the Smith I/O

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

you know i just found out about the lobes. and the I/o

Basically i want whoever is bigger. the more FOV field of vision. i get the better i am. i liked the look of the lobes. the smith didn't look that big to me in pics.

I/O is pretty big, and Smith's lens tech (you also get 2 lenses with the I/O) is the best in the business.

The frame on the Feenom is only 7mm shorter than the EG2. However, the EG2 lens is further outwards. The face fit is nearly identical. EG2 definitely has a larger FOV.

Comparison of the Feenom to the I/O:

yea i hear a lot of good things about smith tech. i like the look of the I/o. looks bigger in pictures.

So actually the IO is bigger than the eg2? wow.

so far i hear most people say the I/o or the lobes are a better deal than the eg2.

+2 for smith for extra lenses too.

aghhh so many choices.

All of the goggles mentioned in here are pretty damn expensive, 140$ plus. If you can stand even a small amount of perhipheral cut off then you will definitely save some money... I tried on the spy trevors today and those had a pretty wide FOV and were like 70 bucks.
I'm also liking my dragon DX's, for my face the fit and FOV is not so bad.
With the I/O's and POCs youre going to be spending a ton of cash. At that point you might as well get what you really want, spend the extra money and get the EG2's.
EDIT: the dragons cut off part of the vertical, but side to side vision is pretty good with them.

Ashbury or Airblaster. Both under $100 with good FOV. Not spherical though. The Ashburys have the most comfortable material-to-face I've tried, and the Airblasters give a really good fit for a broad spectrum of face shapes. Lots of conformability.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
