I love and own both brands. I have a Dragon DX and Oakley Splice and A-Frame.

Granted the DX is cheap, I found them to be of poorer quality. I've handled the Rogues and Maces and they look great. Nothing bad to say about them looking through them indoors.

On the Oakley side, I'll tell you that their lenses are super durable. I am inclined to believe that they have the most durable lenses. They do contract out to the military after all. I've faceplanted at high speed with my A-Frames into an ice patch. Those goggles survived with the smallest nick imaginable. I didn't even notice it until the next day by chance when I went to put it on. I walked away with bloody lips though (would have been much worse if I wasn't wearing helmet or goggles).

I love the peripherals of my Splices (very similar shape to crowbars).

Since Dragon was part of Oakley up until just a few yrs ago, it's prob safe to say they share some tech, even now that Dragon has spun off into its own independent co.

I have a pair of Dragon DX goggles I've been using for quite a few years. I actually prefer them over most goggles due to the wider peripheral vision and decent airflow. The only downside is the large plastic around the goggles looks a bit goofier, but it seems they all are doing that these days.
