My biggest problem with many goggles is the field of view. I hate when the edge of the goggle and padding can be seen in the corner of my eyes. These goggles have a very large lens, and eliminate these problems. The shape of them sets them apart for the rest, and looks great. They are made very well, and the padding should last very long the way it's designed. Where I ride there is a lot of sand, very fine sand, and these goggles keep it out. They also cool good, and only fog when stopped on a hot trail. The only problem I have is I ordered the Merica' goggles, and the white gets dirty very easily. Just a heads up for clean freaks, and nothing against the goggles.
