I have liked the looks of the Aviators since they came out. But 125 is a bit too much for me. Now they are having a sale, where

(1) if you buy one pair get another pair for 100$.

or

(2) Buy one and get a free hard goggle case.

or

(3) buy 1 and you get an extra lense of your choice.

That sounds like a good deal to me. I was just wondering how they compare to the sinisters? Do y'all think they are worth the money?

Personally, I don't think ANY goggle is worth 3 figures. I've spent $75 on a pair, and I thought that was too much also.

With that being said, I've read mixed reviews on the Aviators. It seems that the opinions on them are as uniform as they are with any goggle...some people love them, some people hate them. Everybody has different preferences.

I seen a promo for the goggles on youtube and i must say they do look a little weird to me. I think I am going to try dragon, spy,utopia, or von zipper this upcoming season. but if i want to wear something called aviators i will put a pair of aviator sunglasses on. I tried that last month and it was a little cold

I've actually seen more bad than good about them. Although I really do like my 509's quite a bit, next season I will be back to scott with another set of 89xi's.

1000% agree...

I have an OLD pair of $50 Scotts and I cried when I spent that much...they have been good goggels to me since '01....

cant really complain about them at all...

My cousin has a pair. Every day we rode, he would start with the aviators. Thinking that would be the day the aviators would be trouble free, WRONG! He would end up going back to the sinster goggles he has, and no problems. The aviators fogged up way to easy, while the sinster wouldn't fog once.

Quinlan I agree 3 figures is a lot. Don't know if anyone has posted these, but I almost fell out of my chair when I heard these are $350-$450 http://reconinstruments.com/company.htm Thats a lot to find out they fog easy.

I agree. My Scotts were 70 bucks and I thought that was a little pricy. They are nice as hell though and don't fog/freeze! I've had smiths before and did'nt really like them. I think i'll stick with Scott's from now on. Scott has some pretty nice looking ones that just came out with killer decals, I forgot what magazine I saw them in...i'd look into those.

I've got one of the original sinister series goggles, paid what, $50 for them? When 509 first started making goggles their motto was for sledders, by sledders and we're not in it for the money. When they posted the new goggles on SW for $75 a pair I asked if they'd do a short term discount down to the old price of $50 and got jumped on by everyone as if 509 is God and I was insulting them for making such an unreasonable request.

Eventually I might get a new lens for my 509's but I don't plan on paying over $50 for my next set of goggles.

^^Agreed, when I switched to the open face helmet I searched and searched for goggles that were no more than $50. Then I came across my Scott's on ebay for $45 with $5 shipping and hit the buy it now button without hesitating.
