|Deacon||I have super cheap Bolle's with amber lenses i got for under $35. They work just fine, but I think I'm going to get some new ones for next season, just for the purpose of checking different lenses out.|

My new favorite is the Giro Onset. Huge peripheral without looking like a giant goggle. I compared it to a friends Oakley Canopy, and it honestly had a larger peripheral which was shocking to me.
Changing lenses on the Onset isn't the easiest, but then again I dont change lenses on my goggles. I usually buy two goggles, an everyday/any condition goggle and a sunny day goggle. I figured this way its not only faster but not significantly more expensive than buying separate lenses, thats if you buy the goggles on sale .

If it's foggy or snowing the fan is always on and makes a whirring sound.
3) If you don't have a fit problem and can chose between several brands (note as far as I know: the following brands offer Spherical lenses).
A) Oakley lenses are extremely durable but have no fan option that I know of.
B) Electric, Smith and Scott all have fan options.
C) Anon has the new magnetic mount that lets you swap your lenses quickly and easily. Quicker than the Smith I/O; you can change lenses without taking your goggles off.

|oldmate||Also have iox. They are sweet. Never fogged|

|CheeseForSteeze||Oakley Crowbar and Airbrake for me. The Airbrake is a breeze to change on the lift but the Anon M-1 does beat it for ease. I still prefer the Oakley shape for my face|

I have a pair of oakley splice that I like a lot, but it has less vision than EG2's and others.
You can find some reasonably prices oakleys on amazon for <$50, some with iridium lenses, check em' out.

|Derp||Another vote for Smith I/OX.|
