I know they help protect your eyes...

But are the really high end ones any better then the lower end ones...

Beside the lens which have different features

Is something like this ok?

Well, I thought goggles are just goggles :P

What should I be looking for...beside lens/good fit..?

I've read that sticky post on goggles...

I'm not a fan of Bolle, but they make OK goggles.

How about these in your price range?

Smith Scope
Oakley Proven (make sure it's a dual-lens)
Gordini Ultra Vision

Guessing sportmarts better choice then sportchek :)

hehe, I use to work for sportmart :P

I really don't want to spend too much on goggles, as long as it does not fog up and are comfty ill be happy.

I just started snowboarding don't need anything too crazy yet...

Go try some on and find a pair that fits you best. You'd be surprised on how much they vary. Lens quality is the same as sunglass quality. Do you want a $10 pair of sunglasses or do you want a $150 pair of oakleys? Personally, I always buy the higher end goggles, take care of them and they'll last you a while. I prefer the Smiths because of their frames and they make good lenses. A few of the goggles are now coming with extra lenses included wich is an excellent idea and should have come out years ago!

any goggles are fine really. you basically get what you pay for. but like pretty much all products, the super expensive super high end goggles probably aren't worth the money.

I have a few pairs of Bolles and I've always liked them. The vermillion gun lens on the pic is pretty good for a wide variety of sun levels too. Like others said, you can spend $150 on them, but then you have to worry about them. Get the $40 pair, or whatever the price that fits right, and don't worry about it when you throw them in the trunk and they get scratched cus they were only $40.

Keep an eye on
I got some Spy Zed goggles for $30 (reg $90) last week, and I just saw some Oakley ones for $35 down from something like $130 a few days ago.
