Default Good women's goggles??

New member here, wondering if any ladies out there have goggles they use that they're in love with. I've been trying many many MANY goggles out there and all of them seem to either smash my nose in, or jam into my cheek bones. I am an asian female... my boyfriend says that probably contributes to all these goggles being uncomfortable... I've tried Smiths, Scotts, Anons, Oakley A Frames, and the most comfortable ones I could find were the Scott(I hate to say it) "Diva" Series goggles. But I'm wondering if there are ones out there any of you have used and grown to love.

Thanks!

You pose an interesting problem with ergonomics, since most manufacturers are likely making goggles for a certain facial structure (e.g. caucasians). My wife has a larger nose, but a more narrow face and her Oakley O-Frames fit her great. I just got through with some goggle research and you may want to try out Spy goggles. They apparantely have some double nose setup with the purpose of preventing nose pinching.

i'm an asian female too.. and dont have much of a nose bridge. i find most googles i try tend to leave me w/ a gap b/t the nose and the padding.

i have spy comets that fit me well, they're for small faces

i tried the new spy bias today (spherical lense) and they're AMAZING. fit me perfectly on the nose and they look hot hot hot. not too bulky either. it's like the female version of the spy orbits. i'm gonna find myself a pair now.

My wife tried on all the women type goggles we could find.. The only 2 that seems to fill the gap on her nose were the Spy Comets and the Asian Fit Oakley Stockholm's. We tried the Spy Bias, Smith Anthem's, Anon Majestic's and none of them worked. We ended up getting her the Spy Comets and she loves them...

I had no idea Oakley made asian fit goggles. Pricey, though. Have yet to try on the Spy Comets and those Oakleys. Thanks for the reply!

Yah, Oakley makes a lot of stuff with Asian Fit including sunglasses. Hard to find though. For the goggles, I believe they make them for the A-Frame, Crowbar, Wisdoms, & Stockholms. The only difference (for goggles, does not apply to their sunglasses) is the nose pad is a LOT thicker. You can visually tell the difference if you compare the 2. That means the lenses are the same ones as their regular counterparts. Hope that helps!
