Okay in my never ending search for better goggles I have came across some fan goggles made by Oakley. I have been looking for more information on them but during my search of Google I have been unable to find much info on them. If anyone has any more info on how well they are made or perform it would be great. I know the price of them is $200 and they have to be ordered through Oakley government sales. Here is the picture that got me interested in them.

Interesting, but very pricey. If the price was more competitive with the ESS TurboFan series, they would be worth looking into.

What can I say? One has to pick their respective battles. :D
If I have a cheaper option that works just as well.....well, case closed. :cool:

Those look really sweet, but have to agree with Wolv that the price would have to come down to be competitive with the Turbo-Cams for most people to even consider them.

From the looks of it..I think the new Turbo Cams still has a smaller profile/footprint. However, the design on the switch looks more solid and will probably take more abuse. (maybe waterproof too) :cool:

Here is a place that I found on the net to purchase without going through Oakley. You thought $200 as high wait to you see this place in the UK.
