Goggles for medium faces

Im in the market for a new pair of goggles and need something that'll fit a medium sized face well. I currently have a pair of Oakley Crowbars and Oakley A-Frames. The Crowbars are a little big on my face and cause a little discomfort on the bridge of my nose when wearing my helmet. Other than that, I love them. The A-Frames feel like they fit my face and helmet much better, but I lose a little bit of peripheral vision though. Any suggestions on what I should look at? I plan on visiting a couple shops this weekend to try on a few pairs.

from what ive read, most people that complain about the nose discomfort with crowbars, EG2s seem to be very comfortable. i just got my second set, i love em but dont wear a helmet. worth trying them on at least.

i would say i have a medium face prob lol..not really sure i guess but i use a pair of a-frames with hi-yellow for night riding and a pair of airblaster proams for day riding. they are extremellly comfy and with a very ride range of view compared to the a-frames. when i switch during the same day its a difficult transition but i would rather see something then nothing at all at night lol. i opened them up from winter storage and the chrome was faded off, so they shipped me their newly designed lens with the chrome coat being in the second layer and its really nice.

you can get them for pretty cheap as well

Buy Airblaster Pro Am Jed Anderson Snowboard Goggles - Airblaster at Moosejaw - Free Shipping on orders over $49

thumbs up for a great local store too:P

I just tried on a pair of EG2s.......WOW! Super comfortable, fits well with my helmet, and awesome optics. I'll probably end up with a pair.

I'd like to try the Anon Hawkeyes too, they seem pretty similar to the EG2s.

Alright so I tried on a TON of goggles at Evo this weekend, and the only pair that fit perfectly with no discomfort on my nose was the EG2. I'm really surprised the EG2s worked out that well, I assumed since the lenses are so big, they'd fit a little big for my face. Just wish they weren't so damn expensive though.
