The Dragon DXS Goggles are an excellent choice for riders without a big ol' melon head.

i am looking to buy a pair of goggles. i have a large head and im going to be using a helmet. is the strap on these goggles going to fit over the helmet and my dome piece?
These goggles are a small fit. So I doubt you would like them.
If I was to look at the person next to me...
If I was to look at the person next to me on the chairlift with my goggles down would they be able to see through them or just see the refelction in them?
the gold ionized lens is very, if not totally, reflective. they would see their reflection.
I would say they would be able to see you. the Gold ionized lens on these are more see through than similar lens'.
Good fit, a little tight but the extra layer of foam around the frame means it will fit you well anyway.
You do lose a little bit of your peripheral vision with the smaller frame, but all you have to do is turn your neck a little further to make up for it.
They don't allow for much peripheral vision. I also found that they had strange pressure points even when really loose. Fit great over my helmet, and the lining material is way softer than my Oakleys.
Good for small faces. Decent fogproofing. Gold ion lense is kinda see through, so you're not able to secretly scope that snowbunny's a$$ in the lift line.
Yes, you should buy these
I have owned two pairs of these goggles and they are both the bomb! They let in a little too much air for me (I wear contacts) but they fit so well. Changing the straps and the lenses is very easy to do. NO FOG EVER! FYI- These fit perfect with R.E.D. Helmets (no gap)
NOTE TO ASIANS. PARTICULARLY FEMALES.
The ionized lenses give great viz. The smaller fit is nice but they are a little rounded near the nose making for a less than perfect fit if you have a under-projected nose and nasal bones. . .like in asians, particularly females. My wife and I found this to be the case.
I'm a guy and got the DXS.
I've had these for a couple years. The lens is fairly scratch resistant and they never fog up - unless you hike for about an hour, sweat like your being interrogated and fail to unzip your jacket the whole time. I'm not the biggest fan of the latest styles. Also, for those than think the "smaller" frame equates to less range of view - I never once encountered that problem.
no FOG girlz!
Love the dragon DXS Yes make sure you get the S if you're a girl. The guys at dragon did well to pay attention to the fact us girls don't have as big as a head as the boys... no offense boys. Not only do the DXS fit well but they DON"T FOG! Even when you're digging yourself out of the pow pow, they don't fog on you. They fit nicely over a helmet and w/ just my beanie. They also don't block your peripheral vision, which is a major factor for snowboarders, since we have to look out for those skiers who still don't know the lines of the boarders... Great job DRAGON! Be sure to check out all the cute new color ways this season, i just may have to get another pair.
Fit well with my RED helmet and are quite comfy. Came with other lenses so they don't have to be polarized I suppose. Only qualm is they venilate a bit too well when at high speeds my eyes tend to water.
just how small are they? and can someone...
just how small are they? and can someone looking at you see your eyes through the lenses?
They are going to be a pretty small pair of goggles. I would say that they would be good for a a boy or girl around the age of 12- 14 or someone who has a naturally small head. No they wont be able to see your eyes.
Good goggles, but...
These goggles do the job on nice days, but not in flat light. When I purchased them, I did not realize they were not polarized (my bad for not reading the specs carefully). However, they fit with my helmet great and the fit was perfect for my small head. In addition, I got a lot of compliments for their looks.
These goggles are great! Perfect low profile fit and a killer lens!
