How big are these?
i have a small to medium sized face (I'm about 5'6")
I own a frames and those fit.
i really want these but am concerned that they would look weird.
These goggles rock! I got the pink lenses with the ghost text pattern and I don't think I've ever gotten so many looks due to one article of gear. The vision is superb and the field of view is incredible. The big complaint with a lot of Oakley gogs is that they pinch your nose and are small for people with large faces/heads. My face is on large end of the spectrum and these things fit great! The nose channel is the opposite of restricting. One of my friends is an Oakley Rep and describes them as a "breathe-right" strip for your face. I couldn't describe them better.

i love these goggles but which lens is best for all conditions i ride almost every day snowy or blue bird. but i've never bought oakley goggles.
These goggles kick ass. These are my 1st pair of oakley goggles and I am impressed. They were extremely comformtable - didn't even feel like I was wearing anything after a while. They never fogged up and were a perfect fit with my R.E.D helmet. The lens I got had brilliant vision in all light conditions.
If you're not wearing a helmet, a word of warning, they do look extremely big on the face.
these are the sickest googles mankind has ever created. they are extremely comfortable and they let you actually breathe through your nose. they are the best goggles ive ever owned in my life...and they are super comfy.

Quick Lens Change
This goggle is awesome because Oakley designed it so the lens is really easy to change. Someone timed me once before I even changed the lens before on the Splice and it took me about 5 seconds to do it. So if you are looking for a high performance goggle but you change your lenses a lot. This is the goggle for you.
How easy is it to change the lens out. ...
How easy is it to change the lens out. Is it something you can do quickly on the hill if conditions change? Or is it more involved?
Its quite simple to pop these puppies out..you essentially push the frame apart from the lense, start on the top to remove and the nose when putting in a fresh lense (first time it will be a lil bit difficult) but gets easier from then on. There is a link on youtube of how to do that..if you're still puzzled when you have them in hand..check that out.

Here is a sweet link to see what your various Oakley lenses have to offer. Its my favorite spot before I pick a new lenses, The Black Iridium looks like it will filter the most light for extreme sun reflection but you should check it out!

What glacier are you going to? You need probably two. One for bright sun (fire lens) and then a low visibility lens.
I would Definitely go for the Fire Iridium at LEAST! I used them going down the Vallee Blanche in Chamonix, France.. But as Grete said, in case its cloudy or whatever, get something that will work good in different light settings.. I have Fire Iridium for sunny days, H.I yellow for foggy/snowy/night skiing, and H.I persimmon for forest skiing (as I'm not afraid to scratch em)

How do they handle jumps etc. and the big stacks that come with them?
And do the lenses scratch easy??
I've had goggles that regardless of how tight you have them slip all over the joint...
Oakley has amazing optics, you will have plenty of definition for jumps, ruts, etc... If you get H/I yellow it turns low light or night into day, depending on where you're from, if your zone sees alot of storms, you may want to consider that lens. Scratch resistant to a point, within reason, the lenses are bullet proof though, so if you spend more time in the trees than David Hasselhoff spends on the beach, Oakley will still be the best option for you. As far as them slipping, the inside of the band has 3 silicone beads around it. This will grip to any helmet, beanie or do-rag. Try them, be beautiful and see beauty.
Splice in Nice
Great fit, although narrower than I expected. Still have great peripheral vision and good airflow. Fogging wasn't a problem in wet near-freezing and subfreezing temps. Kids have no problem finding me on the mountain (I have the kaleidoscope block w/ fire lens). As expected from Oakley, the optics are fantastic - see every detail on the slopes with these goggles!
Got the black iridium lens which i found to be absolutely perfect for any conditions. These things hardly ever fog and if they do, just remove them for your face for a second and they clear right up. No nose pinch, they are kinda big, so make sure your helmet fits them without any gaper gap (my fits perfectly with the smith maze). Got caught in a huge blizzard at Vail and while I'll my friends were complaining they couldn't see a damn thing, to me it looked as though it was blue bird...

I'm looking into picking up a pair of these & i don't have the funds to pick up multiple lenses.
So with that said, whats the most versatile oakley snow goggle lense out there? Is it the VR28?
The VR28 and Persimmon, Pink Iridium, HI-Intensity Persimmon and VR50 lenses are probably the lenses that would be considered all-round lenses. They cut enough light to hack it on bluebird days, and let enough light to deal with most flat-light days. The VR28 and Persimmon are the bread-and-butter basic lenses without much style. The Pink Iridium and the VR50 Emerald Iridium are probably the steeziest and most high performance of the bunch, but you pay more. Hope that helps.
