Exclamation New goggles - import?

I'm looking for some new goggles and saw the oakley ambush or the ashbury warlock here in Holland for 80eu (105USD)
Is there anyone who has experiences with one of these?
How about shipping goggles from USA to Holland, what are the costst because in America you can almost buy 2 oakley splice for the price of 1 pair in Holland....

It all depends on what your import taxes or customs for sending items to Holland from the U.S are. If the goggles are super expensive in Holland, it's likely they will try and charge you mega taxes to discourage people from importing goods and buying them in Holland instead.

I don't know how to get around customs/taxes or really how they would work, you should probably do some research.

If you really wanted to import however, Ebay with international shipping would probably be the easiest avenue.

Depends on what fit's you well. I was pretty set on getting Smith I/O's since they come with 2 lenses, but when I tried them on they just didn't fit very well. The Oakley's fit my face perfect, and I ended up getting some Splice's myself. I'm trying them out tomorrow so I'll let you know how they are, they seem like great goggles though. Crowbars I think are the next level down from those, which are nice too.

I'd maybe go into a shop in Holland and just try on a bunch of stuff, then figure out how much you can spend and get the nicest model that fits your face well.
