So I need new goggles because my old ones fog up

I like the look of the dragon goggles but are they really worth the money?

Off course that are worth it. Each model and brand will have more or less quality and will be priced accordingly
Dragon is cool!!! and not very expensive

they're ok. i have some dragons and their customer service ( in australia ) is great. first time i used them i got some water inside the lens and they sent me not 1 but 2 new lenses. they worked a treat after that.

Can't say much about the quality coz I haven't owned a pair yet but they sure do look cool! Especially the red and black ones! I would recommend Spy's. Also not very expensive, but pretty good. At least from my experience :)

Ive had major problems with dragon and electric. They both fogged up for me, go anon. Those are easily the best goggles in the world, and ive tried almost every brand but like ashbury.

Have a pair of dragon maces. nice goggles, but they fogged up on me pretty bad during a snowstorm. Switched to oakley wisdom's, which have been perfect. Maybe the maces just didn't have the right fit for me...

just because anon fits you the best, thus no fogging problems, doesnt mean theyre the best goggles in the world.  if there were even such a thing as "bests," then everyone would be using them.

If you know Dragon's fit you, go for it.  I love the "look" of Oakley's but none fit my face, let alone my fave with my helmet.

can't go wrong wit em as long as you don't wipe the inside of the lense. I have a small face and they fit perfect. Just wish I have a little more lense at the bottom and the side. btw, i have the DX.

Try it and find out because with any gear, it might be for you but not for others and vice versa.

oakley imo just plain suck. I dont know anyone honestly who likes them. Sure they look BA! but they fog like crazy. All my friends and me all started oakley. 3 of us ride anon, one rides dragon, 3 ride ashbury that i can think of. Id rather you go dragon than oakley. Also these old smith 30 buck ones never fogged and were great, as well as scott 20 ones LOL

If your looking to spend a little more and are getting serous about your riding look into some electrics or anons I have had both in the past and they are well worth the money, looks and function.

gf uses Dragon DX with Amber lenses, they are a great all purpose goggles and they were really cheap and good value for money. I found the vision is a bit limited compared to some other goggles but overall great build quality and they never fog.

I use Giro Root goggles and love them, but I have used my friend's Oakley A Frames before and love them but just couldn't bring myself to fork out the cash when i scored the Giro's from here for under $50 :P

i need new goggles too. my brother ran over them the last season after i ate crap and they popped off my head. Everything got completely destroyed and scratched. Can barely see through them.

But anyways, dragon goggles huh? Have not really looked into any brands yet, but it seems promising. Once season comes around, I hope prices are low and stocks are high.

Oakley A Frame Snowboarding Goggles: These Oakley snowboarding goggles are the number one because of their dedication to anti-fog technology. Featuring a three-tiered defense, Oakley features the control of airflow, which cuts down on fogging. Then, they came up with their patented, F-3 Series fog protection. Finally, these snowboarding goggles feature a dual lens technology that fights fog with a thermal coating of already trapped air. All this makes for fog-free snowboarding!

I have dragon 'foil' model goggles. I really like them, and the price was reasonable. They also don't scratch as easily as other goggles I've had, and the frames are sturdy. Overall, not a bad way to go.

The first pair of goggles I owned were dragon, to date still the best goggles I owned antifog wise but it took me stacks of googles later to realise that it was due to the dragons fitting my face better. If you have the chance to try out goggles before buying, get the ones that fit best. The dragons are definetly lighter than some other models and usually come with a spare lens...nice
