Default Goggle Suggestions?

Alright, last year we went snowboarding at my friends mountain and there was a bloody blizzard out, and I didn't have goggles. It sucked I couldn't stop squinting because it was so bright, I used a crappy pair of his and they were really orange.

Anyway so before this season starts I've decided I'm going to buy some decent goggles.
I've got a small head so I'd prefer them not be huge, cheap would be nice, and when I wore my friends goggles with the orange lens they were almost...too orange as far as what I saw through them so maybe a pair that isn't "too colorful."
Any suggestions?

Are those any better or worse than the Smith's, for 11 dollars less?

They're a flat lens, but for $22 they're good.
Anon Gold has a VLT of 50% (similar to Smith's Gold Lite), but it's an orange tint.

I think my goggles are the thing I am most picky about. I prefer wraparound goggles and of the 4 brands I've tried, I like Spy the most. There was a pair of Orbits on SAC last night.
