I do half day half night riding so I have to have two lenses. No matter what I just come back to the I/O as the best deal. Plus they should fit my smith helmet good. Hoping to have some next month.

I currently have a pretty big goggle collection. My favorites are definitely the EG2, they fit the best and have a huge field of vision. I also own the Smith I/O, I like them and the lens changing system is awesome but I honestly didn't think the fOV was that great, it's better than average but not great. I think my Anon Hawkeyes have a better FOV than the Smiths. If FOV is what you're after I'd check out the Electric EG2, Anon Hawkeye, and Smith I/O. The Anon can be found for a lot cheaper than the other two and in my opinion are just as good

I also have the Phenom which was mentioned earlier.. they are one of the most comfortable goggles I have in my collection but the FOV isn't anything to brag about.

i rock the oakley splice. nice goggle, really comfy, and best lenses around. oakley makes durable, high quality lenses that you cant go wrong with. i got the fire iridium, great for sunny days, and the pink iridium for flat light, snowy, and night riding. great goggles.

I got some Spy Targa II's but might buy a pair of Oakley Wisdoms off a friend.
If your a high roller, definately pick up a pair of these.

Dude, those have to be the sickest goggles I have EVER seen! Not sure how practical they'd be, but built in GPS and heads up display would be soo much fun to play around with... I want.

And by the way, I wear Smith I/Os (asian fit) and so far they're been great. Changing lenses is a snap and they're very comfortable.

I went in the store yesterday and tried some on, and even though I think I liked the I/O's the best they just didn't fit my face very well, the Oakley's on the other hand were a perfect fit. So I'm either gonna grab the Splice or Crowbars, their both really nice goggles.

Sounds good bro, I would personally get the Splice's, I think they look dead sexy.

And thats why you go try them on! Everyone's face is different (like their feet and head, which plays into buying boots, helmets, etc.) so its absolutely important to try them on before you buy them. I lucked out and ordered my I/Os's and they fit me just great. But no matter how nice or expensive the goggle or gear, some will just not fit one's face as well as others...

Hey, slightly off-topic question, but not worth a thread of its own. Are lenses from Oakley Crowbars and A-Frames interchangeable? I've been assuming not, but it occurs to me that I have no basis for that assumption. Why haven't I gone to a shop to look? Because my damned keyboard is a lot closer!

I/O and I/OS aren't asian fit. I/OS are smaller versions of the I/O. Bot fit me poorly. EG2's actually fit me better. Crowbars and Splices fit the best. Asian fit Crowbars and Splices fit even better.
