The EGV's are a rad goggle. That's the bottom line here.
Unfortunately I'm not an expert on the technical features of today's premier goggles. But let me point to some of the things I liked about the EGV from a purely looks and comfort-based perspective.
First of all, I really like the "retro" look on these goggles. I've come to realize I'm not a fan of rounded lenses, and I couldn't have asked for a better example of a simple yet stylish goggle than with the EGV. The wide frame allows for good peripheral vision, and fit comfortably on my face. The frame is flexible, the foam is durable, and in a month of use I haven't had any issues with fogging.
They look good under a helmet (even a goofy-ass looking bern hardhat) and even better when rocked with a hood and a toque. I grew up a Max Hill fanboy so please believe me when I say I felt like I was imitating an idol with the EGV.
At $80 MSRP, the EGV is a very fairly priced goggle. You're paying for simplicity and solid performance, and that's what you get.
