Goggle Suggestion for Small Heads?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ok, I got many helpful suggestions for ski jackets/pants in a previous thread, so I'm going to ask about recommendations for ski goggles for small heads as well. As mentioned before, I'm 5'6", 140, and athletic. I've got a pretty small head too. I've tried some on at a local shop and they all covered like half my face. It looked like I was wearing scuba gear. I tried on a pair of kid's goggles and (embarrasingly enough) they fit pretty good.

Any suggestions? Stick with the "kids" version? I'll be skiing on gray days so I think a yellow tint should suit me at the moment.

smith phenom. My 10 yr old daughter loves hers. They fit well and don't fog.

A little pricey here. I picked my daughters up on steepandcheap for around $30.

Smith Anthem - you can get a yellow or sensor mirror lens. My girlfriend uses these with a yellow or RC36 lens and loves them.

I know this is a little late but I just realized that it is the anthems and not the phenoms that my daughter has. They are great as heluvaskier says.

I will third and forth the smith anthems. Both my wife and I wear them. They fit my small face and fit nice with my 55cm helmet as well as my wife's 58cm helmet. The helmet sizes may give you an idea of size range. BTW, I am similar size to you.

Phenoms/prodigy/anthem, with a helmet, they fit great. As far as lens's go, I really like the Sensor Mirrors. I think it's the best for low/flat light and is good right up to partly cloudy avg days. The RC's are my 2nd favorite.

here's some links

yup, over the summer they blow these out. I picked a few pairs. The cost of the whole goggle is the cost of the lens.

My wife bought these, and she is SO satisfied with those....the BLING thing...
no fogging, and she IS hot when she is wearing those.
