I used Scott Storm goggles the last 2 seasons and they were good and only $60ish. They are spherical lenses and fogging was not bad so long as you dont remove them in the middle of a run, etc. They were all I could find locally that worked, as other otg goggles fit too tight and I was on a budget. This season I will be looking into getting some prescription inserts because after nasty spills I've been unable to find my glasses without asking a passer-by for help. If someone rode over them before I located them, I'm sure they'd be lost forever or broken. Prescription inserts would probably be cheaper than having to buy a whole new glasses setup, and they would allow me to use a good google like EG2s or whatever.

hi, ok so i went to sports authority and sports chalet today to find some goggles that fit.

1. Scott storm OTG(with/without a fan) - fit well around glasses, except there seemed to be a pretty big opening near the nose. $65 no fan/$140 fan
2. electric eg2. was SLIGHTLY tight around the glasses not too tight, but i could notice that my glasses was touching the foam, but seemed like a much higher quality. $150/160 at store
3. smith IOX- also like the eg2 but not as tight, $15 more, but the lens changeability seemed a lot more easy/convenient. comes with two lenses, one for overcast days and one for sunny days. $175 at store

The eg2 and iox aren't otg, so they are a LITTTLE tight around the glasses. It's not uncomfortable, but maybe after several hours it could be?

hmm.. im not sure what to get... im really want the iox, but its kind of pricey... it costs more than what i paid for my new board... haha suggestions?? thanks!

What conditions are you riding in? I just got done a couple day sessions in SoCal at Mountain High and the Scott Storm goggles (with NO fan) did me well with no fogging whatsoever. It's true that the nose area is a little roomy, but you can just move the goggles further down on your nose, or use a facemask/neck gaiter/balaclava if you are worried about your nose getting cold (my nose was fine). FYI I wore mine with a helmet and the helmet's goggle strap made sure that my headgear didn't go flying on bad falls.

+1 Scott Storm, especially if price is a factor in choosing your OTG

I'm in Socal too, so mostly big bear conditions for this season. However, I am probably gonna end up going to mammoth,tahoe, and maybe even colorado(keystone) in the future.

@onthefence , i noticed it was kind of warm during the last few days, do the goggles not fog up when its colder as well, like when winter really comes around.. haha

Can't say, but honestly you could just buy all these goggles and see which does not fog up, then return the rest.

If the goggles are touching your frames at all do not get those goggles. After a few hours it will be like torture.

I used to work for Bolle.

They have a goggle called the X-9 otg that works pretty well for those with glasses.

You can probably find them pretty cheap right now via google.
