I've been shopping around for a new pair of goggles and just curious what you ladies find that works well? They need to be:

a: PINK

b: Fog Free or treated with an anti-fog treatment (this seems to be my biggest problem)

c:Not break the bank.

I know the Scotts Turbo's have little fans in them, which, while cool, also makes them a bit heavier and more expensive. Also, they do not come in pink. Also they look a bit big and I wear an Extra Small helmet, so my current goggles barely fit into the space available. Any tips to help me weed through the available brands out there would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

I actually looked at those, just not sure how "anti-fog" they really are. Somebody told me the double lens goggles are better. I even looked at the Fox Main Goggles.

But I was hoping for some real world reviews. ::up::

I think the way goggles are vented is more important than the "anti-fog" lens. Under the right conditions all goggles are going to fog. You may want to try some of the anti-sweat type. They have better foam, better venting and most come with anti fog lens. I just bought a couple sets of these on super closeout for $12.99 two weeks ago. http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/2/6/4/11843/CITEM/Smith-Fuel-Sweat-X-Goggles-Closeouts.aspx
And no I didn't get pink, they had other colors and a cheaper price two weeks ago. Still a very good goggle for $20.00. I wore them in the mud bog of an enduro last weekend and they worked great. Lots of stopping and heavy breathing and no fogging. Wish I'd bought more when they were on super closeout.

What Brant said plus most goggles come with a variety of lenses available, Just because they don't come with an anti-fog lens new doesn't mean it can't be bought.

I really like the Oakley O-frames with the double lens. They do really help with fogging The only downside is the replacement cost of the double lens. Since we frequently ride in thick woods, I have to replace them about every 5 rides.

I've had no problems with Oakley Crowbars. I think they come in pink, if not then I know the O-Frames do

Well, I finally got new goggles, thanks for the tips.

The Scotts looked really nice with plenty of ventilation and nice wide field of vision. Unfortunately they were too wide and wouldn't make it over the nose piece on my little helmet. :(

The Oakleys were just as wide. ::duh::

So I grabbed a pair of Dragon MX. They seem to have ample ventilation and super thick foam around the frame to soak up the sweat. The field of vision is a bit narrower,but they fit well inside my helmet. They're supposed to be anti-fog, so we'll see how they do next time I ride.

Info: Dragon MDX MX Goggles

• Polyurethane frame
• Unidirectional air flow system
• Moisture wicking micro-fleece face foam
• Silicone beaded adjustable strap
• Flexible single lexan lens
• 100% UV Protection
• Lens mounted posts for tear-offs
• Holds up to 28 laminated tear-offs

Hey Girl... I bought some pink Oakleys from Cycle Gear right before we Louisiana girls came up for Spa Day back in Dec. They worked well and never fogged up... comfy too. My husbands goggles were always so big on me!
