So far, all goggles I had (Juble, Smith IO) worked well while riding (fast windflow) even in warm spring conditions, but while hiking they're a no go. I assume that there's just not enough speed/windflow to compensate for the sweating, no matter how fancy the goggles are. As mentioned, even the pretty open sunglasses fog up then.
