i would certainly consider them quick change. its a rim-less frame those connection points are easily accessible. you don't have to feed the lens into a narrow track before click in (if ya know what i mean)

so are they like the standard NFX lenses how they attach?

yes, looks to be exactly the same. so i guess just a bigger frame? maybe different foam?

they all work. you're going to have to figure out something between 'brand whore' and "ill close my eyes while you pick something for me" because there is a lot of space between there.

you kinda did when you asked about zeal goggles. seems like you're sort of screaming out for help picking goggles

and, in review  you did say" if it works i'll use it" which is fucking retarded because they all work

and you stampeded to the "brand whore" line when I suggested buying Zazoom goggles (or wtf you're interested) suggesting that people buy goggles based on the brand even if they don't work...

so if you don't want to include your subtext in the conversation on the internet i suggest you wise up or ship out

or go buy those stupid fucking ZEEEEEEL goggles and quit asking stupid questions

the choice is yours can you handle it?

make sure you add your goggle brand to the list of brands you ride in your brand footer so we all know

the good: a bunch of electric's electrolite goggles on ebay for <$70 shipped with all kinds of lens options, also they're light weight.

the bad: you have to buy 2-3 pairs cause you can't change the lens on the electrolite.

@lilteichmonster i've always considered zeal as one of those big box sporting goods store type brands that they sell to the consumer not willing to shell out oakley, smith, uvex, etc. money cause they only go up 2-3 times a year. will they work? sure. to an extent, so would a tinted snorkeling mask if you poked a couple vent holes around the sides. fwiw, you can always swap the strap to a solid black one, or flip in inside-out, if you're concerned about having ZZZEEEAAALLL on the side of your noggin. on the contrary, there are "core" brands like ashbury that have, to me at least, always seemed like low-tech shit, and bank upon their core-ness to sell product to dirtbags and park rats vs a high-tech, high-quality product like the other major brands which seemingly market themselves. opinions may vary

Thanks, didn't realize they had that sort of connotations to their brand. I wouldn't care about having zeal on the side of my head. I don't live anywhere near doc so I doubt i run the risk of someone riding by me and calling me a pussy libtard dickbag for not supporting core brands

I have multiple Zeal goggles and love that I don't have to dick around with carrying & changing multiple lenses. Also, the polarized photochromic Zeals are more expensive than most Oakleys, iirc. If anything, Oakley is a poseur brand in my book but whatever rocks your boat, I used to be a big Oakley fan. Also, I do think Zeal went down after Maui Jim bought them, liked them more before.

Anyway, I have fogging issues with all goggles when I work hard so trying the Smith Turbo fans this year.
