I have Anon Helix, Spy Zeds and Uvex Superstars. They all fit fine with no problem at the nose, but the Uvex ones help at lot for periphial vision (I have a problem with the other goggles sort of blocking out my view sideways)

For all Asian Fit Goggles from Oakley, the only difference is the nose padding. If you compare a std and an asian fit version, look at the foam around the nose. You'll see that the Asian fit's foam is a lot thicker. It basically fills the gap created from the lack of a bridge. The good thing is that all the lenses are interchangable between the reg and asian fit goggles of the same series.

As for the Spy's, my wife had the Spy Comet's and they did a pretty good job of sealing up around the nose. She prefers her Stockholms though...

and i think i made a mistake.

i bought std oakley stockholms off of tramdock for 50 bucks. I didnt' realize that there was a different version with the "asian fit" does anyone know if there is a really noticable difference between the std and the asian fit? if so, does anyone wanna buy these off of me :p

I would let your gf try them out first. There might be a gap, or it might be fine... The difference is noticable if you're comparing the 2. The foam at the nose is a lot thicker. Again, that's the only difference. I suggest try going to an Oakley store. Most other places don't stock the asian fit goggles at all. You can compare the 2 at the store and try them on... Good luck!

Like they said, the Oakley Racist Fit has thicker foam padding on the bridge of the nose to fill in the gap. That's the one you want.
