Best Value Goggles

What is a good quality pair of goggles that the lenses can be switched out of that wont break the bank?

I got a cheap pair of zeals at tj-maxx, but I cannot switch lenses and they are pitch black lenses.

I really would like to pay $75 or less.

just wait until a pair comes on whiskey militia or steep and cheap. i use this site to track those websites.

GearScan.com - Outdoor gear deals from Steep and Cheap, Whiskey Militia, Chainlove, and more

i'd imagine they put up a pair of goggles every couple hours or so, and they're often a pretty cheap pair of high quality goggles. otherwise check out sites like the clymb and seshday because they always have nice goggles on the cheap.

I bought a new Smith I/O with two lenses off ebay for $90 from a reputable retailer a month ago. You can find some uglier colours for ~$70. Probably similar for other brands with interchangeable lenses.

My Top 5 goggle choices:

Electric EG 2 and 2.5

Optic Nerve Boreas (frameless design fits my helm so good, super easy/quick lense change, lesser known brand is more affordable)

Quicksilver Hubble

Von Zipper Fishbowl

Smith IOX

Your definition of what's good my differ from someone else. Some of the popular higher end models are:

Smith I/O
Electric EG2
Anon M1
Von Zipper Fishbowl
Dragon APX1
Spy Platoon (the Doom also looks nice. I haven't seen any reviews though...)

You should check out smith phenom, they perform really well, you can replace the lenses and they don't have the hefty price tag of the more top range goggles (eg I/O), you should try and get them on a deal (last season or used as a stand example at a shop).

I went with the Smith Stance because they fit my face perfectly, as a bonus they're cheap.
