Welcome to the forum.

That's just a link to the Smith website, were you trying to ask about a specific pair? Smith is a great goggle anyway. But like all companies they have top and bottom of the line. Your best bet would be to keep an eye on websites like Whiskey Militia as they have top of the line stuff for super cheap and, you know, bottom of the line stuff for super duper cheap.

I'm not a gear whore and I've taken my kids hand me down goggles as they keep buying more expensive goggles. Their money not mine

That said I have had their 1 yr used goggles for 2 seasons now (3yrs). They have held up very well and fit perfect to my Smith helmet.
Maybe not the most fashionable, or best out there but again, held up well for me and we ride a lot. (60 days for the Midwest is a lot ahahah)

Smith goggles have been around for a long time and know what they are doing...but more important is the fit and matching the lens with conditions that you will be riding.

Like wrathfuldeity said, make sure the lense matches the conditions you will be riding. That's the biggest lesion I've learned while investing in googles.

You can also get some pretty good Von zippers for a descent price too.

If you're digging through your grandma's couch cushions for your goggle fund... our VonZipper Beefy Snowboard Goggle won't break the bank and will keep you heading straight down the hill.

Head over to the funny farm to pickup some new VonZipper

Affordable but quality brand

I reccomend Anon. They were my first goggles and I used them for four years. Not exactly 30 dollar goggles, but they have options cheaper than most that will last you if you stick with boarding.
