Get super comfortable boots first, then get some GNU bindings and a Gnu carbon credit board. (i really like GNU boards: my favorites are the riders choice and the park pickle). Googles are all about fit and how well they keep from fogging. Youll need to check out some reviews on how well they work in the anti fog department. But make sure you try them on locally before plunking down the cash buying them online.

Get the Smith I/O goggles. You get two lenses for the price of one, plus a larger field of vision.

I heard the electric eg2's were quite good?
Also, any recommendations for boots?

They're great, largest goggle so the best field of vision, that also means they don't fit with most helmets. They also come with only one lense. I've only tried Vans and DC boots, but the Vans titpunched the DCs in comfort

hahaha, yeah I like to wear helmets because i don't want to kill myself.

I'm thinking about getting something from dragon, vonzipper, or electric. Anon seems to be too expensive/not really worth it (and it's owned by Burton!). However, looking at the dragon mace's it doesn't seem like they have mirrored lenses, which I would like to have because I really like seeing my reflection in my goggles.

I ride during the day and at night as well, so I would probably need 2 lenses.

The Smith I/O comes with 2 lenses, can you pick what kind, like one that works well in day, one that works well in night?

I ordered mine at DogFunk, and the lense options were variable, but they always bundle one for low and one of high light. The ones I got came with Ignitor(35% VLT) and Sensor(70% VLT) and they're super easy to swap out.

How much did you pay for them? $150 for goggles sounds a little high...

Paid $150, but like I said you get a second lense $50 value for free, also free shipping. It was worth it to me after being unhappy with the field of vision from the Phenoms.

I can vouch for I/O's. Incredible goggles. Very rarely fog and the fit is extremely comfortable. I think you should first find the boots you think feel best, then find a compatible binding, and then see how to even out your budget for a fairly good board/goggle/helmet setup. check out whiskey militia.

do prices usually get lower in the off-season? I can wait to buy my goggles until next season, so would buying in the summer be better priced?
