Default Help with choosing a goggle [non technical - what looks good with jacket/helmet]

Hi,

I have this helmet and have been looking for some goggles to go with it. Helmet :

How do you think these would look with it

Has anyone seen any similar goggles with that green color I am looking for?

Thank you!

I wouldn't buy both in green, the colors will never match and I think that won't look good...

Btw, if you get Anon-goggles, you might wanna look at a RED helmet. They are made to fit on eachother, and besides that, you should always try to see if you don't get a gap between goggle and helmet. That's just for idiots

The green goggles are nice but unfortunately I won't be wearing any yellow so it wont work.

You might be right lydt - I might have to make a new plan.

I was only getting the goggles based on the theory that I want them to match the helmet - otherwise, anon is probably overpriced. Idk though - I might just have to go to the store with the helmet and try stuff on (duh).

Or use my current goggles.


Do you guys recommend spherical lenses over flat? Is it a significant difference? I have flat $50 smiths right now - Idk if it is worth it to upgrade to spherical

The biggest benefit of spherical lenses is that they offer more field of vision without distortion. This is why the biggest goggles out there are all spherical lenses. You just can't make goggles like the EG2 with flat lenses because things will start to get distorted.

If flat lenses have been working for you and you don't mind the FOV, then stick with em.

I always notice the frame of the lenses. Seems like a small fov

Shouldn't it be more? Like should I be able to roll my eyes to the side like I can without goggles and see things?


ALSO What do you guys think about these And I can get a great price ($50) - but that also means it is a cheaper goggle. It is scott and MSRP is only $95. Does that make it bad? Is Scott a respected brand when it comes to goggles? Or will anon or smith or electric (or some other brand) be a better goggle?

Edit: Just realized that is a green goggle again . Everyone agree that that will look bad with the helmet? If so, what is a good color? What about a light blue or something? Here is my jacket
My pants are are a very rich green - they match at least one of the color swatches on the jacket

Thanks for the help!

I don't know if you're still considering the green Hawkeyes but they have the exact color on geartrade if you don't mind buying used. My entire goggle collection was purchased through geartrade and I highly recommend them if price is an issue. The Hawkeyes are a great goggle by the way, my second favorite behind the EG2's.

Well.. to each their own but personally I'd go for a different color. You have a green helmet and partially green jacket, I think going green on goggles would be a color overkill. I really don't know what color goggles i'd get with that combination, blue? black? I'm really no help when it comes to style, I just wear whatever.
