Thumbs up Help choosing goggles

Hi guys,

I'm looking at buying some goggles and narrowed it down to a three options and was hoping for some feedback from people who might have used them previously so I can make an informed decision (I've also looked at few posts here). I am buying on the internet so I'm hesitant to buy until I have all the information. I am Asian, so ofcourse I have difficulty in finding goggles that will fit over my low nose bridge. My local stores unfortunately don't carry the 'Asian Fit' so I can't try any locally.

I recently purchased the Smith Phenoms, I love these goggles but unfortunately I can stick a finger under the goggle nose bridge so these awesome goggles had to go my bf -.-

Anyway! So I'm tossing up between Smith Phase (women's fit so might fit??), Anon Hawkeye (read somewhere these might be good for asian faces) & Electric EG5s (I'm not sure how these fair with low nose bridge)

More so, I'm also looking for people's feedback on tints. I'm looking for flat light and snow tints so Smiths - Sensor Mirror, Anon - Amber and Electric - Rose. If you've used one or two and can compare that would be awesome and very helpful. I have read alot of positive feedback about Smith's sensor mirror's great performance in very low light and this greatly influenced my initial decision in purchasing the Phenoms. This time around I thought I might just see what other people have used and see if there is an equivalent lens tint from a different brand that might compete with Smith's sensor mirror.

I hope this makes sense.

Thoughts and suggestions welcome!

Thanks in advance guys.

Oakley A-frame with H.I.Yellow/Persimmon would be a good choice for flat light conditions. You can easily find one A-frame J(asian fit) on ebay.

Oakleys are the same price as every other goggle. You can get Crowbars for $120-140 current season, same price as all the other top spherical offerings from other companies; Smith I/O, Electric EG2, Dragon APX etc.

I'm waiting for the Anon M-1 next season for ultra fast lens changing.
