Holmes The VR50 Emerald Iridium is definately a nice lense but a bit pricy. Persimmon is definately a good all around lense. I have the fire iridium lense can can honestly say I hardly ever use it. Like someone else said, its only good on extremely bright blue bird days with absolutely no trees around. Also, the H.I. persimmon lense is a pretty good low light lense.

romesaz I've a bolle vermillion(pink) lense and then picked up goggles with a clear persimons lense and prefer that much more for night riding. It's MUCH easier to see detail with the yellow. Although the mirrored pink is fine for all around riding.

If you're expecting more brights than clouds, go for something a little darker, like Blue or VR50 Emerald Iridium.

Nivek Yeah, pink iridium is one of my favorites for all conditions. Iridiumm cuts glare and the pink is good for all light. I regretfully have to say that I like the Crowbars better. Finally tried some on for the first time (9 yrs snowboarding) and was instantly and unfortunately convinced. Closest I've come to comfort is Anon Figments and they don't have the periph that the Crowbars do. I just have a thing with Oakley. All my friends I grew up with played baseball, so all they would wear was Oakley. I got it in my head that Oakleys were for typicall highschool jocks. I've just scoughed at Oakley for so long, hard to stop. But they're the first goggles that don't pinch my nose. Broke it a while ago and now glasses, goggles and such dont sit in the middle of my face.

LouG I can vouge for Persimmon being alright in most conditions.

Really bright days call for lenses with a darker tint (blues/greens) and lowlight requires lighter tints (yellow/rose). The lighter tints are meant to filter shadows better when everything is just one big shade of gray.

and ive seen the EG2, looks kinda cool, whats the deal with it?

From what I've read Fire Iridiums are good for your real bright, blue bird days. Other than that, they are more of a one trick pony. A lens like the Blue Iridiums or the Permission is going to serve you well for all weather. I don't know where you are from, or what kind of conditions you get but keep that in mind. For night riding grab some yellow lenses.

LouG Oakley Crowbar hands down, super comfortable and a nice range of vision. If you had said EG2 it would be a bit more of a contest.

As to your lenses, most any lens that comes with a goggle isn't going to be that stellar in low-light/night/overcast conditions. Like Snowjoe said there are replacement lenses, it's a good idea with any goggle keep at least a yellow lens for low to no light situations and a standard lens for sunny/bluebird days.
