HELP!! Its time for some new goggles!
It's time that I invest in some new goggles since mine are about 7 years old and beat up. I've been researching into it and have narrowed it down to three type: anon hawkeye, electric eg2 and oakley a-frame. Price is not an issue. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Do you want really big goggles that give you a huge range of vision that make you look like an astronaut? EG2 (do you wear a helmet?)

Do you want a classic, clean looking goggle but lacks the range of vision that come along with spherical goggles? A-Frames

I personally have A-frames and love them dearly but I am looking at getting a pair of EG2.5s this next season. I love electric but find the EG2s to be a tad big but have not tried on a pair for myself.

spy also has a BIG goggle coming soon, it may even already be available. I have had them on under a R.E.D Mutiny helmet and the fit just fine. they are much larger than the current spy stuff, but not as big asthe eg's

I might be holding out for the new Airbrake goggles from Oakley.

I dont really mind wearing larger bug eye goggles if it helps with my vision. I do not currently wear a helmet but I might in the near future.

For me it's more important for my equipment to be functional rather than stylish or whatever. So the EG2's are my vote based on the mega field of view they provide.

Love anon! Personally more of a fan of the realm tho. they just fit so well altho I do shave the foam a little around my nose so my big honker can breath a little better. never has caused a problem for me

I had a set of oakley's and altho oakley is one of my favorite all around clothing/glasses/brand their goggles never fit me right, and always fogged

Love my A-Frames, but the Electrics look very appealing because of the wide range of view. Looks like you narrowed it down to some solid goggles.:thumbsup:

thanks for the input people. I guess the last thing I need to do is try each of them on...hopefully I can find a shop that has all three *crosses fingers*
