goggles for hiking???
I don't get it why would you use goggles for hiking? they will fog no way out of it. Use sunglasses instead. Goggles are only good for high altitudes but at that point its cold so no fog.

|lab49232||Right, you should really have about 3 lenses if you want to cover most conditions. What goggles do you have? Each company has different takes on lens colorand tint combinations. Like I said yellow/blue works well for me in super overcast.|

Polarized are designed to help reduce glare in sunny days, don't go with that. As a general rule of thumb the more clear the lens the more light it lets in and the darker conditions you use it in. For example yellow, pink, amber and clear lenses are all dark to night condition lenses for the most part.
People always try to buy super chromed out lenses thinking they look great but in reality on super overcast and dark days or for night riding you often won't want these. You need something to enhance light and yes sometimes that means getting a yellow lens. A yellow lens with a blue tint can look good and function well in lower lights for me.

|kosmoz||Need an advice on lens color and/or type for overcast, flat light conditions. I have cheap Easun goggles in amber/bronze + mirror finish outside, and they are comfortable, doesn't fog up etc. but when conditions are not so good visibility sucks. Do I need polarised? What colour? What I know for sure, lenses needs to be bright (not tinted a lot), but what color? Yellow, blue, green, pink?|
