burton support gloves or some anon goggles

I'm about to buy the burton oasis hydration backpack from tactics. I wouldnt mind spending another $40 on something and getting the free shipping. I already have some burton gloves (i believe they're called "profile) and i have smith prodigys.

I tried using a wrist guard, i believe roces made them but i couldnt fit it under the gloves. I wouldnt mind getting another pair of gloves if these burton support gloves are good replacement for wrist guards?

If it's pointless, i was wondering if i could perhaps use another pair of goggles? The ones i have, i can't find anywhere in my color. They are red, with white strap, and have silver lense. They seem identical to the ones featured on site (this season). The reason why i mention this is i'm not sure which lense is it, what conditions its good for so i don't end up buying the same thing just different brand/color.

perhaps these?

I have a pair of those gloves and I totally recommend them. they're much more comfy then the avg wristguards yet supportive enough so that you don't have to worry bout hurting your wrists from bails. oh and they def keep your hands dry n toasty too.

One of the guys i chatted to in a shop said that inbuilt wrist guards dont work properly as they dont stay in the right spot- but i have never used them so Im not 100% sure, you could always buy normal gloves 1 size too big and then guards fit underneath. But I vote buy some more goggles, I love having a few pairs to change between (one lens for bright, one for overcast).

If you already have a pair with silver/mirror lenses (which are good for sunny days). Then you'd be better off getting some goggles with rose lenses which are good for low light and bad vis. So that way you have goggles for the two different seasons. You could always just buy another pair of lenses for your current goggles though.

As far as wrist guards go, I have some Dakine ones and they fit under my gloves fine and I don't notice them.

I'd get these anons just because they're on sale, but now since the shipping is only 5 bucks i'm not sure if it's a good idea just to buy it because of that

I'm a bit confused, is it actually just the "mirror" lens thats good for glare and sunny days and silver/purple is just a tint that looks cool, or the rose/mirror lens behaves differently than silver mirror?

I really like the black figments, but if i'd be buying the same thing as i already have...

Btw i live far aways, i cant really experimetn with ordering stuff i'm not 100% sure id be keeping. The replacement lenses on smiths website look different than my prodigies, they don't have any holes, mine do, and i couldnt figure out a way if i can release the lens on mine. When i bought them, i threw away the box into my friend's car, and i havent seen it since.

I like the figment so much that i think ill buy them even if they do have the same lens... What's the excuse i could use if i already have the same performanse goggles? They could fit better with a red helmet, they're on a huge discount... they just look way too cool that you've got to have them?

After my experiences with all types of wrist guards, I found that wrist guards under the glove can tear your glove. That is why I only use Seirus Innovation Jam Master II because they go over the glove and are much more comfortable.

i even found the black with gold chrome lens for $20, but i liked these more

now the thing is i can't find all of those listed replacement lenses anywhere online, i was interested in the pink sq mirror or "red ice" but nothing.
