OK I know there are many different types of faces so I know that people prefer different styles.

What I'm curious to see is what style has the best coverage for your face and which one has less than ideal coverage.

For me Crosshairs cover my entire field of vision minus a tiny sliver on the extreme edge of my periphery.

The lenses that lack coverage are my Why 3's. Totally wide open peripheries, they don't cover my eyes high enough or low enough. I love them, but I just couldn't possibly use them for really bright days. That's why I bought the low light level models - the Blue-black iridium and the Ruby clears.

Any way I'm interested in finding out what you guys find has the best or worst coverage

Well, I guess MY personal best coverage frame would be my Eyepatches, and my least would be my Ducati Zero's or my Hatchets...

To be honest, and don't get mad at me for this Pez, but I think this thread is kinda pointless. Obviously the frames with the larger lenses are going to cover more of your field of vision than the ones with smaller lenses...its common knowledge.

I don't mean any offense, I'm just saying.

Mars would be the worst. Although things like the Why series don't protect the sides, the Mars block the sides altogether and make a blindspot.

Ehh yeah no offense taken. I was just kinda curious. I guess I'm just bored. lol

I can wear the Valve, which has tiny lenses, and get perfect coverage. They just fit into my eye sockets deep enough that they "seal"

Over the top aren't the best eye coverage.

X Metal XX are really good. I think the best eye coverage is Zero L.

Why 2 is the Worst, My M-Frame Slash is the best. I wonder if it is the lens sizes, just a guess ;)

Dann it's interesting that dartboards are your best. I find that they sit too far from my face and decrease my downward coverage.

I still love em though

Best: Monster Dog

Worst: Switch and Wiretap
sees you

Best; Riddle but best usable coverage is M Frame Heater

Worst: Any OO but worst usable coverage is definitely 0.3 (not P) That giant blind spot is just plain dangerous

Juliet gives me the best coverage compromise for actual protection and comfort. The Penny covers me very well, but makes an almost hermetic seal against my face so the lenses fog up immediately upon wearing. Same with the Minute.

Worst Coverage is tough. Usually I just rate it as anything that doesn't happen to fit myself in anyway at all.

the zero l. those lenses are so huge that there's virtually no light creeping in through the edges.

the new zero 0.7s, however let in too much light in the sides.

however, i find that the size of the lenses don't always offer a commensurate level of coverage. my e-wire 2.1s offer great coverage since they sit pretty close to my face despite me having a big head, whereas the larger wardens and hatchets let in some light from the sides.
