Question Best goggles?

OK, i'm looking at getting a pair of goggles.
I have heard that crowbars can scratch easy
Anons fog up easier than Electrics and Oakleys
Which goggles are least easy to scratch and least easy to fog up?

These are ones been looking at

Oakley splice
Oakley Crowbar
Electric EG2
Anon Realm
Anon Figment

Any opinions...

Any of those are fine. Get the goggles that fit you the best.

I'm happy with Realm. You can get previous season model quite cheap. I got mine for $60, it cost $135. However, as mentioned, any of theese would be fine!

trying them on really helps.
I just went to the store and started puting them on.
I ended up with the anon figment. I wouldn't have ever choosen this without trying them on first.

Get whatever fits you the best with a lens suited for your weather conditions.

I use Oakley Splice's, and I plan on buying the new Oakley Airbrake goggles.

If fogging is a big factor, stay away from the EG2's. I have a pair and they fog up like no tomorrow.

Smith I/O are the best goggles I have ever owned or tried! That said they are small (mine are 2 years old so they could be larger now?) so if you have a big head then they may not be for you.
