Question Best goggles from this list?...

Can't seem to find reviews on any of these goggles here. but the discounts are pretty good so I thought I'd ask for a second opinion.

What do you think? Anyone have any experience with any of these?

Assuming that all of those goggles have decent double-paned anti-fog lenses:

The fit of the goggle (in terms of now it sits on your face & nose bridge) is important, as well as wehther it is compatible with your helmet (if you wear one).

Then there is FOV (field of view), and lens type.

You should really go to a shop and try some on. I usually give shops a 10%-15% window in terms of price.

Pick between one of the Anon Figments or Solaces. Oakley A-Frames aren't as good as people claim and the Smith / Uvex ones are crap.

I know I love my A-Frames, my girl loves hers, and everyone I know that owns them loves em.

It's pretty much A-Frames and Smith goggles in the circle of people that I know......

A-Frames come thru brociety for $35 from time to time.

I've never been a fan. I got a pair as a gift one christmas and hated them. Hated the look, hated how limited my field of view was, hated how they felt on my face and hated how every third kid on the hill has a pair.

Grats on your face uniqueness?

I went from Anon Figment to A-Frames actually.

The Anons were alright, but I did have some fogging issues. I never ever ever have that with the A-Frames. As far as comfort goes they're about the same for me, field of vision I think is slightly better in the A-Frames as well.

It's all personal preference really.

You're right, it is all about personal preference and proper fit for your face. My gripe is that people think A-Frames are the end all be all of goggles when they aren't and that they unconditionally recommend them to everyone.

Oh gotcha.

I was just looking back at your conditions as to why you recommended the Anons, but I couldn't find any...

And A-Frames do fit a lot of peoples faces, which is probably a large part of why people recommend them. Not to mention the anti fog tech they use.

I've got a pair of the regular A-Frames and the Jap fit and the jap will need some break in time, but the regular ones fit me perfect out of the box.

The J's basically have thicker foam to fit the flatter faces.... Maybe that style of A-Frame would've fit you better?

Either way I'm glad you found a good fit for you, and I hope this guy does also. Shitty goggles suck
