First off, you are going to want a pair of goggles that has interchangable lenses.

One lens for low light, such as a yellow, gold or amber lens, and a lens for high light.

Lenses for high light are usually darker tints, and another nice feature to have for high light is a polarized lens that blocks glare.

For snowboarding, vision is crucial so I always try to find goggles with a frame that doesn't obstruct my fov.

Spherical lenses are a plus as well because they don't distort the landscape as some non spherical lenses might.

As far as brands go, they all offer goggles that provide the features I just listed. Brand really is where personal preference comes into play the most.

You may like the style offered by one company over another.

And since you where a helmet, you will need to find a pair of goggles that have strap adaptors for use with a helmet.
