Summary:
If you need a good helmet goggle, I doubt that you will be more impressed with any other goggle. Plus everyone carries replacement lenses.

Strengths:
They don't fog up very easily. Pretty durable for a non impact resistant goggle. Very comfortable. Better fit than Oakley's with a helmet. They are also very stylie, but that's not important.

Weaknesses:
They do fog up more easily than the regular scoop goggle.

Summary:
I got the mirrored lenses on my Blizzards and they look SICK. Probably one of the best looking goggles on the market today. I decided to purchase a SPY goggles because i own a pair of their Scoop XS sunglasses and thought they were awesome. Also jeremy mcgrath (founder of SPY) and shaun palmer wear SPY too. REally only complaint i have is that the mirrored lenses scratch pretty easily. Got a minor scratch by just wiping my lenses w/ the cleaning bag while lightly digging in w/ my fingernails. Believe it or not, ALL GOGGLES FOG UP. Although this goggle is not an exception, it does a pretty good job of de-fogging when you have wind going through the venting system. Price is a little steep if you pay fuull price, which is around a 100 clams. But i got it on sale for 60 bucks.

Strengths:
The look of this goggle is awesome. People defintely give you attention if you are wearing these. Never fog up unless you get snow inside the goggles. Padding on the inside is comfortable. I believe it is allergy-free padding.

Weaknesses:
If you are wearing these around a helmet, especially a fullface helmet like i do for boarderX and mtn biking, its a little uncomfortable. i have to adjust the strap all the way to end and it is still relatively tight on my face

Summary:
These are the best, they never fog and they form a super tight seal against the face. I used them at Tremblant where is is fairly cold and the wind can be bad, these goggles stood up to the test. The salesperson said don't wipe them inside or it will wipe off the fog resistant coating, this may be why I saw some of the other reviews for these, cause I have no problems at all. I would recommend them for sure.

Strengths:
Never fog, tight seal against face and they look soo cool!

Summary:
These goggles might work well for a child, or someone else with a diminutive size cranium, but their tight curvature is not conucive to good peripheral vision because the goggles rest further away, and causes pressure points. The strap works well with a helmet, with it's silicone backing. Nice, but too small.

Strengths:
Aesthetic appeal, good strap, variety of lenses available

Weaknesses:
Limit peripheral vision more than other goggles. Poor fit & finish (backing foam misaligned, lenses could fit better).

Summary:
First of all, all goggles fog up. You just have to use em in crappy enough weather before it'll happen. The best you can do is make sure the company that makes em has really kick ass customer service and is willing to replace them if they ever permenantly fog up.

The Blizzard is one of the best. Plus Spy has great customer service...if they fog for good call em up. And if you haven't seen em, these things look frickin sweet! Fit well with your helmet too if you're a jibber.

DO NOT BUY THE OAKLEY A FRAMES JUST BECAUSE THEY LOOK COOL UNLESS YOU LIVE IN SOUTHERN CALI WHERE IT DOES NOT SNOW AND NEVER PLAN TO RIDE ANY PLACE WHERE IT DOES SNOW! IF YOU RIDE WHERE IT SNOWS, THEY WILL DEVELOPE FOG INSTANTLY BETWEEN THE LENSES NO MATTER HOW MANY PAIR YOU SEND BACK.

Strengths:
These things look so damn sweet!

Weaknesses:
Hard to find the color you want.

Summary:
How do you make a goggle that doesn't fog under any situation, will dry out even when packed with snow and can be ajusted to any light condition? I have no idea, but the folks at Spy sure do. They have put multi-lens versitility in a virtually haze proof livability. And they're even comfortable! They're very cool looking, but draw a lot of attention. So if you aren't ready to lay it out and go big, think about something one of the plain colors as opposed to camo. Basicly, if there is such a thing as a perfect goggle, the Spy blizzard is it. They'll even fit under a helmet!

Strengths:
Interchangable lenses, Won't fog, sick colors/designs

Weaknesses:
None to be told of

Over all, appearance and fit are strongest points. Not as bulky as Oakley A frame, and fit smaller face better than Arnette's. Straps hold shape and don't bag out after repeated soakings and use. Other than some fogging under heavy work loads, no weaknesses. Excellent optics with good selection of lense colors.

Strengths:
Nice fit over helmet. Also fits smaller face well. Cool colors.

I have had some fogging problems and replacement lenses are impossible to find.
