I just saw Spy Omega Goggles that have a gold mirror lens. They are just under $40 shipped. And from what I gathered from u guys, mirror is good for sunny, and orange is good for mixed conditions? Is that like a mix of both? lol. Anyway, I think the color scheme on it is rad and it matches my jacket and the price is right so I jumped on them regardless.

I'm going to wait until I get to the store and see if maybe I can try on some pairs before I decide to pull the trigger on any more, but i'll have all of your suggestions in mind.

Oh I saw dragon maces or dragon dx or something on whiskey yesterday or the day before, I forget. I think I was turned off by the colors and tints they offered or something because I wasn't really thinking about it. I forget.
The Omega's are good but the Soldiers have better peripheral vision. That said, spy makes a good goggle. Don't buy a second set, just get a different lens. The Gold Mirror I believe is actually very dark and designed for super bright blue-bird days. I'd buy an orange or rose lens for everyday use

I almost bought these last year when I got the feenoms... the problem I had was I couldn't find them in a store anywhere to try on so I didn't want to drop $150+ for goggles without knowing how they fit. The technology is crazy though... very similar to the Oakley sunglasses that do the same thing.
