Goggles for a tiny nose...

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I've previously just ski'd in my prescription sunglasses, but my latest pair have been a terrible fit from the start & suspect they will cause me a few issues in all.but perfect weather this year, so I'm planning on wearing my contacts.

The issue is, ive tried on a few pairs today including bolle & dare2b (I'm being strong armed into helmet... of which a bolle backline seems to fit the best..)but I've got quite a small snub nose... so most really press or squish most of my nose... most of them also seem very built up around the nose bridge and i struggle to look past this

I really don't want to spend a fortune on them but don't want to be uncomfortable. Recommendations please? Pref one that will be useful in most conditions... so assume I'm looking at a cat 2 lens?

The best advice is to take yourself and your helmet into as many shops as you can find, and try on any goggles they have. As you have found addding a helmet into the goggle question changes things quite a bit.

Depending on the resort you are going to, they will probably have way more choice.

If you really have to buy online contact one of the big retailers and ask for advice, such as:

Thank you. We're off to St Gervais... my other thought was to accept buying the helmet & buy them out there if I need them...

Even without the helmet my nose seems to dissapear... are the any that aren't so built up over my bridge in my eye line?

some major brands (I know Oakley do for sure) offer "Asian Fit" goggles which do indeed cater for the smaller nose. I was skiing with a Chinese girl last week who educated me on this concept.

With a small, thin female face I have a rear problem getting modern goggles to fit my face at all under a standard helmet. I often try children's goggles (Decathlon do some good Cat 2-3 ones), or female ones (Smiths had some good models a few years back). Just avoid the huge bulbous modern designs and shop around, along with your helmet.

@Grizzler, I have had this problem where most goggles seem to press on the end of my nose and I found that Dragon goggles seem to have a higher step up over the nose. EG dragon XS small/ladies. However the best fit ever has been the Dragon Rogue.

I use these and Oakley Airbrake and fin them comfortable with a helmet.
