Need some help with goggles: proceed at your own risk! :D

Hello there,

I did quite a research on goggles and I think I've figured out a lot of things... but in my case getting my hands on pair of good quality goggles is not as simple as it sounds...

1) My funds are low... we're talking about ~60$
2) Seller have to ship to APO address (have some friends that work for US army), shipping to Bosnia IF available is in most cases around 25-30$... so, ebay is not an option
3) Goggles have to be helmet compatible and I would prefer to be able to switch lenses
4) not sure if I have to say this, but it would be nice to get as best anti-fog protection available for such a low price...

The closest I got to solving this thing out was Oakley O Frames, but I've noticed they didn't get much love

For now I'm using Siberia S46 model, unknown brand I stumbled upon on ebay for 25$, shipping included... They do the trick, they don't fog and they look nice imo, but I was wondering if I could get something better than these




Thanks

ahha I was looking at those speedometer goggles earlier today, and damn they are sick, but I wouldn't want to waste 500 bucks if I fell and broke those things. plus they're about 400 bucks out of my price range.

Now I have smt to do in next... 3 hours or so I'll try to narrow it down to at least 3-4 models and I'll be back to check out on what you guys think about my picks, I do read reviews on things I'm considering to buy, but I take those 5 stars reviews on the sellers sites with a grain of salt...

P.S. I almost died of heart attack when I saw wisdoms for 64$ The goggles I fell in love with Unfortunately 2006 model they had is no longer available. I think they're not compatible with helmets anyway...

Yeah, I love these goggles, I got more than i was hoping for when I bought them... I just wanted something that will look nice and would get me through my first season on the slopes...

I was suprised with the quality of goggles (you can get these for 15$ on ebay auction... free shipping for USA), and anyway I though I'll probably end up shattering them sooner or later so I didn't want to spend too much money on something that could easily be messed up... Now when my only problem is not to catch heelside edge when doing toeside turns (I'm glad I bought a helmet before I invested in the goggles ) and I don't fall on my face too often I think it's time to get something with quality lenses...
