I'm in need of some Goggle Help. Anon Vs. Zeal

Okay, this past weekend I went to my local store, and tried on a bunch of pairs of Goggles. Things like Oakley Crowbars/Splices were too big on my face. The A-frames were okay, I just wasn't a big fan of the style.

EG's looked too big for my taste, I liked the Anon goggles the most. I ended up buying the Solace Model not knowing it was a female marketed goggle.

So today I was doing some research on the best all around lens because I definitely don't want to be fiddling with my goggle lens throughout the day. The Anon pair that I bought has the Gold lens which is like a middle of the road type deal. I'm sure it will work, but it obviously wont be optimal.

So I have a few questions.
What are some other brands/models that I should look at for wanting a smaller look?

I found a good deal on a pair of Zeal Dominator SPPX goggles, but I don't know if they are overkill or not. I only ride about 5-10 days a year. Does anyone have an input on this?

I'm also kind of bent on the womens goggle thing. I guess I shouldn't be if I like the style and everything.

Not sure what to do, should I return the Solaces, get these Dominators. Or just go for something else all together. I'm looking to spend no more than 170 bucks. I spent 112 with tax on the Solaces.

Thanks All,
Chris

Im not trying to thread jack but since this threads already here i figure why make another, hope u dont mind, if u do by all means scream at me!


Im also looking for a pair of goggles and im not sure what i should get, if boarding goggle are anything like motocross ones then im sure they have certain ones that are better for Fitting glasses under. Anyone have any incite on wich goggles would be best for wear glases under or any current riders with glasses have a specific brand/model They favor?

Life is a giant high five, huck it every chance you get.

Csanto: Smith has their I/OS for $180. It doesn't really have women's styling, but it is smaller for women and chilren. And it comes with 2 lenses (one for flat light and another for bright conditions) and uses Smith's super quick lense changing technology. I have the I/O (larger version) and it takes me like 15 seconds to switch lenses.

tj ras: Most companies have OTG (over the glasses) goggles designed for wearing glasses under teh goggles. Again, I would suggest looking into Smith's line because I think they make the best goggles.

i just bought smith prophecy goggles and they are made for people who wear glasses. From what i hear they work perfectly (i dont wear glasses),but they fit nicely and do the job. They are not small goggles so if that is what you are looking for these are not for you.
