I have a medium face. Of the "quick change" models, Smith I/OX were astronaut huge and Smith I/O left gaps around my nose (shoulda tried I/OS) and VZ Kabong had to be pushed down to my nostrils to be able to see well...those are the only quick change I've tried.

The other thing is the lenses aren't that much quicker to swap out than most standard goggles (and no one I know rides around with spare lenses...still gotta go to your car).

I'd actually prefer to have 2 sets of goggles: one with a flat light lens and the other with a bright sun lens...that way they're ready to go, without any time spent changing lenses.

How are the Dragon APX goggles? Apparently they will fit most faces, and have pretty darn easy to change lens on!

idk, all those oversized goggles didn't really fit me. There might have been no gaps in the foam, but they just ended up too far down on my nose

imo, the "fits most faces" claim is more of a sales pitch than anything. Some goggle frames are more flexible than others and will conform to the sides of one's head (horizontally), but, vertically, they're just oversized

i just bought a pair of airbrakes. the old goggles were the old A-frames. i cant even buy a new lens for those since they dont make them anymore.

the airbrakes are def bigger. my face is pretty small, but it does fit with my helmet on, but i do notice that its bigger. there is also more padding so it should shrink up a bit tightness wise.

i only went with these because insurance paid for them (thats not relevant here) but they do customize the colors and such which i guess is nice. but the base price is $270, but certain lenses cost more.
