Best Goggles for <$100

Hey guys!

I'm new to this forum as you can see. I'm looking for some goggles for my brother and I. I'm 16 and he's 21. We're not looking to spend too much, $100 is the cap, but preferably closer to $50. My brother skis in Colorado every weekend so he needs goggles.

I am out east sadly and do a lot of twilight snowboarding at sugar. Every year I go out to Colorado to snowboard with him and currently just have a cheap pair of goggles.

For my brother he said he skis in bright to overcast conditions more often than not. Sometimes when it is snowing, but never at night or in a blizzard.

I on the other hand start my day in whatever condition, typically sunny, and end the day when it is dark.

Something that is anti-glare, anti-fog, and polarized would be nice.

Let me know what you guys think!

For that price range I like the goggles that Von Zipper have. They are pretty affordable and durable. They do a good job at keeping stuff out and letting me see now. My wife uses my pair from two seasons ago and she loves them. She keeps on putting off the oakley air brake

How do they deal with fogging? I heard they fog pretty bad.

Also I've found them on ebay for 60-$90. Are those real?

Obviously I can't speak for anyone else, but my EG2 goggles have never fogged. The coldest I've used them in is probably around -20 celcius.

Looks legit to me. Seller has good feedback and lots of it. Price seems to be what a good sale price would be at a local shop, it's not abnormally low.
