Default OTG Goggles

I want to wear my 1/2 helmet, but I cannot find goggles to go over my glasses. I've tried on a bunch and they crush my glasses into my face. One pair fit well, but had crappy foam on the back that didn't stop them from digging into my face like an open tuna can being shoved into my forehead and cheeks. So, I'm looking for some recommendations- I'm trying to stay away from the large Ski-type but I'm running out of options.

I have a great full face, and then I bought another 1/2 helmet with the flip down visor- didn't work for me. Tons of wind came in and my eyes water like crazy.

Pics and pricing is welcome-
Thanks!

Do any of them go Over The Glasses?

I have to wear prescription glasses- I've ridden in my old riding glasses and I get headaches and see double- doable for short periods but after a while it's headache time. Then getting to the destination and putting on my scripts and then going back to the non-script glasses it's really rough.

I'm looking for some replies regarding goggles that fit over your glasses.

BTW- these are the safety glasses I used to wear before my eyes got worse- They're from Stihl and I got them in amber tint. I have a really comfy pair of safety glasses in clear from Home Depot- nice. I digress- still want info on OTG Goggles.

I used to ride without a windshield until I got my first bike with one. I haven't ridden without one since but when I did I had the same problem you did plus the glasses would bounce around as well as watering eyes. Wrap around prescription glasses helped a bunch but I had to have two pair; one clear and one dark.

Something like these goggles is an alternative and they have switchable clear/dark lenses.

Guys- I've tried on a few pairs-

Guard Dogs- Evader 2. These were the better fit, but the foam was cheap and they just crushed into my face while riding.

Bobster Night Hawks- great quality, nice two-stage foam on the back, but they hit my glasses and pushed them hard into my face.

I appreciate the interest in this thread, but I'm looking for people actually using OTG goggles- what they are, how they fit, and what they cost.

Please keep replies to that for the time being.

It sounds like you need to hear from people that wear the exact same prescription glasses frames as you do; not the different goggles.

What exactly is the problem? Do the goggles not fit over your glasses? You need to give us more to work with if you're expecting any kind of helpful info.

From what I'm reading; it sounds like you need different glasses; not different goggles. Any good quality goggles should work.

Or, if you wanted to make it easy on yourself, a windshield. I used to run a little Tombstone style handlebar windshield. It made all the difference. (not me in pic)

My glasses' temples are 135mm wide. They are rectangular in shape.

I don't want a windshield, and I don't want to wear a 1/2 helmet with the flip down shield as that doesn't work for me.

I'm looking to talk to people that actually use OTG goggles. I really didn't think this would be a difficult topic. Obviously, people like me with a need for them would have probably tried a few pairs on- they may recommend features or benefits of those that they've tried. I figured I could compare notes, or in the least, look up on Amazon the pair they were using to see if I should try them out.

I appreciate the suggestions about windshields, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Years back before I had corrective PRK done I used to wear glasses and I wore Wiley X "Spear" goggles over my glasses. My glasses were not very large (Army issued black plastic frames) so I had good luck with those. I hope this helps. Good luck.
