Keep an eye out for Spy Zeds on S&C, nice goggles come with 2 lenses.

Depends on where you ride and what you ride. If you every ride in storms or deep powder fogging is your worst enemy. My friend rides with some Dragons and he's always complaining about them fogging when the going gets tough.(same experience with Bolle) I use oakleys which don't fog even if I try to fog them but all oakleys seem to cost a little more. Of course if you are just hitting the park and groomers and would rather chill in the lodge when its storming out it probably doesn't matter which goggles you get as long as they're name brand.

I've heard a lot of guys complain about their dragon's fogging.

They sure look good though.

OUCH! Sorry champ didn't re re realise I wasn't up to standard! Thanks for the fogging info though exactly what I wanted to hear, seeing as though oakleys won't go with the rest of my riders4riders kit how are the soldiers shredz? You know I don't wanna get all hot n foggy when it's like gnarly you know

I am aware spy is not a board specific company

I have both the Soldiers and VonZipper Feenoms...very similar, except my Soldiers tend to fog a bit more. I'm a big guy who tends to sweat alot so all of my goggles fog to some extent but the Spy's seem to do it a bit more. Of course if you can get them for super cheap go ahead... that's why I got them myself as a back up when I broke the strap on my Feenoms towards the end of last season with a trip coming up that week...

I think your best net is to just go to a store and try some different sets on to see what fits your face best. If your set on spys just go find a store that sells them.
