Anyone have a problem fitting these cause the goggles were too big?

I have two pairs I am in love with them but I think my nose is too small or something? They don't fit snug for my face. There is a gap between my nose and the goggles.

no issues here and i'd say i have an average size nose...goggle purchases should be made based on fit. try on some VZ feenoms if you like the wide look.

i cant remember if its spy or electric that did this, but they made this goggle for "asian" faces. basically for people with smaller noses/lower bridges.  As much as i like the electric brand, a lot of their stuff just straightup doesnt fit me. i've owned 3 pairs of sunglasses, 2 fit like crap and 1 was satisfactory; i sold all of them or gave them away

anyways went off on a tangent, back to your point, maybe try the oakley crowbars or another brand other than electric

Well researching online gave me a great idea.. some dude got foam from the paint brushes and found one soft for his liking at home depot. He cut a small piece of foam and hot glued it to his EG2 to close the gap.. Maybe i should try that this weekend

I'm gonna go to REI/Sport Challet tomorrow and try on some goggles that actually fit right for me. I didn't know goggles can be this much a pain in the ass.

Yeah I was looking at those. right now I'm between the choice of

A frames/crowbars from oakley. I just don't know which lens to buy with the goggles. and i don't even know if they sell "asian-fit" goggles in the stores. I'm gonna probably have to order them online

you can always throw on a face mask to eliminate the gap. not really a biggy if you ask me. and the asian fit doesn't fit me, it create pressure point on my nose, what a cheap design.
hmmm... Now What???

I think if anything.. I'm just gonna super glue a piece of foam on there.. I think I'm gonna cut it out from my previous goggles that are broken.

oakley asian fit has slightly extra padding than normal in the nose bridge area
works for me
i got both splices and crowbars in asian fit

still suggest you try it to see if you have the gap

i do suggest trying vz feenom or EG2.5 or oakley a-frame (normal if you cant get a asian fit to try on)

I have what I'd consider a small nose bridge (Asian), have noticed that the goggles sit a little lower on my face, but have not had any other issues otherwise (doesn't obstruct my breathing or anything). The goggles have a wonderful fit with my RED Mutiny helmet. Bummer it hasn't worked for u man!

l'm not sure if l'm the only one. but when l throw a facemask over/under my goggles it causes it to fog like crazy. any way to get around it?

You need to shop for asian fit goggles although most stores won't have them in their stores, but online.  Oakley has a good number of asian fit models to choose from.

asian fit does not guarantee it will fit

you may be better off getting a smaller frame like the a-frame 
if that fails get asian fit a frames LOL

I've already tried A frames. they still have a small nose gap, its the only goggle with the smallest nose gap so i guess the asian fit will fit me perfect if i get them.

if you can try the reg. crowbar first. the crowbar's nose piece's foam seems extra thick and cushy. very comfy on my asian face. dragon dx fits great too.

have you try air-goggles, they so flexy than will almost mold to your face. check it out.

for coolz, i never have any problem with my face mask under goggles, because that's how i wear them all the time. i can tell you i'm a heavy breather and sweat easy, but nothing happen. i have used several face masks as well (air hole, celtek, etc).
hmmm... Now What???

yeah, you need to fill out a form and take a few tests (probably math) before you're approved to buy them
