Best goggles for big heads

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I need a new pair of goggles for my big head but don't have the cash to buy Oakley Wisdom's--which everybody (big and small) seems to love in these forums. I don't wear glasses. Anybody have any suggestions before I go out and look? Obviously, trying them on will be the final determination. But I'd love to get some suggestions beforehand so I don't buy something with poor optics and fog resistance. I'd prefer to stay under $70. Perhaps Oakley O-Frames? Or a pair of Zeals? I hear those run bigger.

Thanks for all the help.

Check out Anon, they are made by Burton but definatly fit on the large side, retail should be abot $60.

Check out the Smith Triads. Not as much as the Oakleys if you just go with the base model lenses. Also helmet compatible for the most part.

Got Zeal Detonators from Ebay w/ 2 pairs of lenses for $25 and they fit my big head well.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Which Anon where you talking about Bootdude? There seem to be four different Anon models?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest big goggles for your big head. Head to a decent ski shop and try on all the goggle they have in the price range you're limited to. Most of the 'in' goggles are made by one of the few larger brands. Uvex, Carrera, and Smith make most of the 'other' brands. Briko, Oakley, Alpina, etc, make very good glasses and goggles, but are generally pricier.

I have the Subrosa, see if you can find a pair to try on I think you will like them.
