goggle suggestions?

I'm looking to buy a pair of goggles for around 0-$50. I was looking at the Uvex Whistler goggles, but they don't seem like they're that great quality. I was also looking at Smith Optics Scope Pro. Any suggestions/ info? Thanks!

I'm a big fan of Smith goggles. I'd suggest just trying on a bunch and find out which ones fit your face.

I agree, try a bunch on. There's a lot of great goggles but it really depends on what feels right.

I'm not sure what it is you're looking at with the Uvex goggles but I've had a pair a few years ago and they were amazing. Uvex makes a great product but just doesn't seem to be as popular as the Smiths or Dragon or Scott etc etc. The only thing I don't like about Smith is that I use OTG and their OTGs just don't fit ME well. But they make a great product and I WISH I could wear them.

Right now I use a pair of Gordini goggles and so far they're amazing, I just can't seem to source out a clear lens for them.

but again, like linvillegorge said, just go and try on as many as you can till you feel comfortable with a pair.

Use the search function, you'll find a plethora of goggle information. A pretty good one is the one titled "Big Ass Goggle Fight".

A local store has a pair of Dragon D1XT goggles for sale. Are these good goggles? Anyone used them? I was looking at those or the Smith Scope Pro. Thanks!
