My friend is looking to get some new goggles. He has a small head. Kinda rounder head face. He would wear them with a helmet. What kind do you suggest?

Smith Phenoms. Love how they fit with my helmet, never had problems with fogging.

Ionized gives it the mirror finish, and helps see details in the snow. <BR> <BR>I recommended the DX because you said he has a small head/face. The DXS is even smaller. They'll all go with a helmet, and actually I tend to like larger goggles with helmets, but I like em as big as possible anyway.

What helmet is he wearing? I know Smith tries to make thier helmets &amp; goggles fit good together... no gaps... etc...

My wife just bought the Oakley stockholmes and she isnt to happy with them. Lenses kept fogging up so we brought them back to the oakley store the gave us a new lense and they still do it once in a while. Sucks for a 120 bucks. Anyone else have this problem

Steve - go get some Smith Turbo fans... never fog again...

Steve check to make sure the lenses have been inserted into every single notch - its easy for one of the notches to be missed - therefore getting air into the lense causing fogging. - Also check to make one of the notches arent broken off completely - thats a possibility too. <BR> <BR>Also - make sure your goggles are stored in the house, or in an avg temp area. Not in the trunk of the car or garage where they can get extremely cold over night and cuase moisture to build inside the lense - then those lenses are pretty much done.

I still wear my Smith regulators. Don't know if they still make them though.

Jae, Those are awesome I wish I had mine still, although they were pretty scratched up when I got rid of them. Open lets air in, closed nice and warm.
