Does anyone know a good and cheap brand for 180 degree view goggles? I'm female with a sensitive head, so something that isn't too big or too tight. The one I currently have doesn't give me a good view and gives me a huge headache with the slightest fall. I've tried to un-tighten it and it still don't work. Please and thank you.

realistically, this will come down to trying them on in person to find the one that fits your face the best. that's the normal game plan, but it's even more important in this case since fit is clearly an issue for you.

there are a lot of goggle frames these days that focus on minimal frames and wider views.. basically getting rid of any excess frame in order to maximize your view without just making the goggle so much bigger.  to me, that sounds like it's along the lines of what you want in a goggle.  I would strongly suggest going to your local shop to try on as many frames as possible.

Haha. You mean loosen? Listen to Spenser and go try them on. That's the best way. I personally like the look of the spherical lens goggles, but I don't notice any difference in them compared to a flat lens.

LoLz, you caught me with a brain fart. I knew that word didn't make sense. I'll try again, but I've tried the ones I got and was satisfy with it until I got on the slopes. That's why I wanted to know if there are certain brands that are preferred.

I have a pair of anons that I like a lot. super soft foam and I can wear them all day with no fogging or itchness.

do you wear a helmet and if not i'm pretty sure all the anons can fit around a helmet. so you should be able to loosen them more than enough.

otherwise a lot of people like oakleys so you could look into some used ones to save on the price a bit but most likely you're just gonna have to try some and see.

Try the EG2.5 (buy out of model year). Great wide angle vision, smaller than the EG2, and probably around 80-90 bucks if you wait for a good deal.

The girls I ride with loves their Dragon DXS, Oakley A-frame, Smith...dunno the model, and sunglasses.
Never fogged and never heard them complaining. 
If you can, go to a local shop and try them on.
Have fun shopping.

Thank you everybody for the great advice. I am going to research more about the dragon dxs and eg2.5. They look small and comfy and not too much restraint. After I will go to the store to try them. Thanks again.

^^ My friend had the same problem as you, and it was because of her high cheeckbones. Try Asian fit goggle styles, that fit caters to people with high cheeckbones.

May have been mentioned before but; don't forget to pack along your helmet or beanie or whatever when you try them on.  my Spy Platoons fit super great in the store, but when i put them on my lid for riding, they pinch my nose a bit.  Not too bad to return or anything... just un-expected.
