    What Goggles To Get?

    Need to get a new pair of goggles and im not sure what to go with. I was looking at oakley, scott, rudy project, Spy optics, etc. What have you guys used that have performed well? Also, with the climate here in pittsburgh, its hot and cold alot, so what about antifog lenses?

    I tried Scott and Oakley's. They still don't compare to these,http://www.steelmx.com/moto/dolomite.html

    One of the best ventilating google I have ever worn. Awesome quality for the price, lenses are easy to swap without getting them all fingered and super thick foam/fleece padding.

    I like the Crowbars...expensive though at $60 bucks.

    A cheaper solution is Blur B1s, pretty good.

    Go to your local moto shop and find the cheapest goggles with anti fog lenses (trust me, you want this). For me it's usually Oakley O Frames for $30.

    cheap ones with inexpensive replaceable lenses. goggles get thrashed, no sense spending allot. they all pretty much do the job. i've had good luck with cheap Oakleys and smiths.

    Camp out on www.tramdock.com and www.brociety.com and get the first pair that shows up under $30. I got a pair of Spy's there that are simply amazing from an optic standpoint for about $25, if I bought them at the local shop or at a different online retailer they would have gone for about $70. Goggles pop up on those sites often enough that I'll probably get a couple more pairs so I have spares for this summer.

    hmmm. So many to choose from. Personally, if I were you, I'd take a clear plastic bag and put it over my head and wrap ductape tightly around the bag under your neck. Make sure it is completely air tight though, if air gets in or out your doing it wrong. May want to find someone to help you with it. Just my 0.02$
    I'd huck that...

    I have the Premium Beer googles and they are nice and comfy and fit my glasses underneath very well.

    I've got 3 pairs of Scotts. 1 pair of VoltageX and 2 the NoSweatXi. The NosweatXi are my favorite of the Scotts. They absolutely will not fog for anything. The only thing I am not overly thrilled about is that the nose piece tends to push my nose making breathing a little bit tough.

    I have 2 pairs of the Oakley MX goggles as well and they are comfortable but arent as resistant to fogging as the Scotts.

    I'm a big fan of having multiple goggles. I'll have to check out those SteelMX. They look pretty nice.
