I have tried the spherical lens goggles and it was a notch up in clarity of the traditional goggles i have used, but I also lost a little peripheral vision. They also tend to fog a little easier. The EGB2 has such good lens quality and the frame allows you to see everything. It was sick, I was so stoked to finally get a pair of goggles that worked perfect. It also doesn't look like your getting ready for some cyber war. I was running the O frame Oakley for years because it was the best flat frame for me until I got a hold of these.
