EmoParkRat ashburys have reflective mirror lenses on them and they're sick. I'm rocking the warlocks and have no complaints about them.

What's your budget? As for reflective lenses, they are excellent for bright days, but are really poor the second a cloud covers that sunlight. Ideally, you either want multiple goggles with different shades of lenses or extra lenses. I prefer buying multiple goggles as you can find many at a cheaper price than a brand new pair of lenses. That way you can also have multiple brands and styles without the need for swapping lenses out. Although if you have Smith I/O, the lens swap is easy peezy.

If you want an all around lens for now, you should take a look at the lens' light chart and look for one that transmits around 50% of the light.

Also, Spherical lenses are going to offer the clearest and most peripheral range of vision over flat lenses like the Anon's that was posted above. However, spherical lenses will cost you more most of the time (there are always sales).

any specific goggles/brands you can recommend?
Not really, just pick a name brand as they tend to be better. Then make sure they have 100% UV protection, which they mostly have. If you wear a helmet like I do, you gotta make sure the goggles still fit with the helmet on.

I personally have this one, and the lenses and straps are interchangeable, I have a black lens to use. But I only used it once. Thinking about getting some new Anons and the switching up the straps.

Haha. Ok that is a valid argument.

Anyhow, they reflect light - right? So it will be darker. You need to pay more attention in school son. :P The less light your eyes have to work with, the less contrast you can make out. Since everything in gonna be white on white in the snow you want the most contrast you can get, with mirrored you can't see shiat and it will be too dark as well. Its kinda like wearing dark sunglasses in a tunnel.

Yellow/reddish lenses are great for cloudy days.
