Goggles big on the face

I have been looking for Goggles and every pair from $60 (Spy) to $150 Dragon/oakley

Look Hugh on my face

I never remember goggles being this big or is this normal and how they look now.

After 3-4 years I'm getting back into the sport and was always aware goggles are one size fit all,but do they make them for people with a smaller face.

thanks

They do make Asian size, maybe girls goggles will fit you better. But who cares how big they look, as long as the goggles are not restricting your vision that's what counts.
I had a $60 pair of Spy's a few years back and I found them way too small...

Do you mean they look huge, or they don't fit your face right? Goggles looking huge is definitely the newer trend, since you get a bigger frame of view from inside.

I think he says they look huge and don't look right on his face. To the OP, Hobo pretty much covered it, this is the new trend.

I've always found "Expert Village" to be a pretty ironic name considering how bad most of their videos are. Video quality and logical instruction are both lacking.
