River Road Eliminator Goggle
Good fit but a bad buckle for some helmets
These goggles fit my face and my eye sockets nicely and keep the wind out. I think I could wear them for hours. They're not the smallest goggles though so they look a bit bug-eyed on me. My only complaint is that the buckle is a bit too big so my open face helmet can easily catch on it and pull the strap down over my right ear in a pretty uncomfortable way. I get around this by pulling the helmet on slowly and holding it away from the buckle as much as the helmet will allow. It's not a big problem but it wouldn't be an issue if the buckle were smaller or lower profile. This won't be an issue if you're wearing a half helmet.

First time I wore it I got it in my backpack during the lunchbreak and when I got it back one of the lenses had fallen! Kind of cheap, this stuff.
Not such a big problem, though. It was easy to put the lens back in place, and the goggle is working well since then. It's comfortable and has a lot of style.

Good bang for the Buck
They fit good and are flexible enough to they should fit just about everybody. The mirrored one could be a bit darker for direct sun light but not bad, my eyes tend to be a little sensitive to light. Slightly fog if standing around but just walking in the is enough to dissipate it.
Rode nearly 200 miles with them and can't complain even in the 25 mph winds that were coming from the side or else head on most of the time.
Will be buying the clear pair soon for night riding and probably try the smoked pair also.

Sometimes, you get more than what you pay for!
I bought these goggles to use on my bicycle. I commute year round and live in a temperate zone, so Winter can be a difficult time of year for me. I used to get to work with frozen tears streaming down my cheeks, but now I arrive with dry eyes. The problem I ran into with other goggles is that they don't vent well enough at low speeds, but this goggle is chock full of vents. There are vents on the sides which are visible in the product photos that let in enough air to clear any fogging, and another set of vents on the bottom between the plastic frame and the foam that allow the air to escape.
The one negative to these goggles is the fit. My head and features are slightly above average size. The plastic of the frame sits directly on the bridge of the nose, which is a bit uncomfortable. I'm sure I voided the warranty in doing so, but I cut a bit of the plastic material off with a razor blade and replaced it with some foam tape I had lying around my shop, which completely alleviated that problem. If you have narrow nasal bone, you probably won't even need that step.
The band is 1" wide and is long enough to fit all the way around my Bern helmet. I wish the band had some tactile rubber on the back to help it stay in place, but at this price point it's not really that big of a deal.

Good locking, confortable and cheap but it tarnish easily
Plastics are nice, kind flexible frame, confortable wearing foam, elastic band is a bit thin (1") and not heavy duty so this goggles are to fit the head inside helmet, not outside rounding helmet. Only problem for early mornings, these get tarnished so fast, even not using facial mask or half mask, I mean, nice looking air holes to provide termical balance trying to avoid visual issues but are not enough for 60° and 50% humidity weather conditions.
Nice quality for a low price.
