Default Ah Goggles.

So I am officially horrible with goggles (I've gone through about 4 pairs of Oakley E Frames). The first pair I swiped at when they were wet (huge mistake messed up the anti fog). The last pair I ran over with my snowboard (uncool scratched up my board). I've been looking at the Spy Targa only about $10 difference but I prefer some durability. Or shall I continue going through Oakleys like tissues? Any thoughts?

Yeah I kinda figured that but I don't want to spend $100 on goggles that will get trashed. I'm trying to learn better habits . I think I'm trying to figure out if I should start buying better goggles... It seems that the only ones that they do carry at my local shop are Spy and Oakley (annoying). If anyone knows of good goggles that are cheap let me know!! Appreciate it!

EDIT: My eyes start to glaze over when people go into the technical bits. I know the differences between lenses, vents, and padding but alas have ADD.

Either keep buying cheap goggles and trash them or buy good goggles and take care of them?

I have some Oakley A frames and they work great.

Or pull out your existing E frames and go buy some Cat Crap anti fog and put that on real quick before you go out for the day..the come small enough you can throw in your pocket. Its like 2-3 dollars for several hundred applications worth..

ooh that would work! Thanks! Yeah I think I may invest in some better goggles and try to take better care of them (I think I keep trashing the Oakleys based on the mindset that they are easy to get ahold of and cheaper than others). I really have no problems with my Oakleys they are just shitty when it comes to durability.

EDIT: I'd appreciate some feedback on different types of goggles and what you guys think are best! I really don't have much room for comparison (as seen in my unnecessary buying of more Oakleys)

Hey thanks! I was thinking about the chrome amp lenses they seem to work the best (in my opinion and I live where there are a lot of sunny days). Scott or Smith may just be my goggle of choice

spy and oakley should satisfy your goggling needs, they are arguably the two top goggle brands, and anon may be in the discussion..but assuming youve gone through 5 pairs you should probably be a decent snowboarder by now? or just reallllly bad lol, but i would invest in a pair of a frames or spy soldier/orbits

Thanks geeze (jk). Nah I just seem to have bad luck with them. And truthfully I've gone through about 3 pairs I'm on my fourth. I think I may just have to throw down some cash. Anons are a bit out of my price range though!
