Von Zipper Fishbowl; anyone ridden with them?
 
Just curious as to their fit and peripheral vision. Are these a bigger goggle than the EG2? From reviews, word is that these have the biggest and most effective peripheral vision on the market. Sure Dragon APX look massive, but the actual face frame is fairly normal size. Its just the outside lens that gives the perception of a bigger goggle.

I just tried these badboys and I was dissapointed that they pressed to much against my nose. So I ended up buying Airbreaks, perfect for my face. 2cent

They are slightly smaller than the EG2, an in between of the EG2 and the EG2.5. They gave me way better peripheral than the EG2s I tried on 10 seconds before. I have a medium sized head, therefore the medium between the electrics was perfect. I am getting some next season.

i got them, fit and vision is great and i love it. but there is one thing that troubled me when i hit the mountains for the first time this season. there seems to be air bubbles in between the lenses? it was before i started riding, saw them when buying the tix. anyone have this problem with other goggles? or is it just this one in particular?

Just tried a pair on in the store. Peripheral vision was unbelievable. Seriously, like not even wearing goggles at all. I thought the Smith I/Os were gonna be my next goggles, but I don't think so now.

I don't like how the Fishbowls look being so huge and all, but fuck it, I love the peripheral view.

havent personally ridden with them but have had a couple friends express their displeasure with the lenses. Saying they scratch very easily and the mirroring comes off. because of this I steer customers away from VZ. also when you put on the VZs and look at a light you can see the light twice and I can see the reflection of my own eyes in the lens, personally hate it. I sell and ride with EG2s

I love my Fishbowl, and but they're so big I've yet to find a helmet that works well with them.
