goggles for other half

Looking to buy a pair of goggles for the lady, she needs one pair of goggles that will work in nearly all light conditions.

So I was thinking maybe a pair of SMith I/O7 with 2 different lenses?

Depending on budget, they do make goggles with Transitions tech. It changes tinting based on ambient light. Dragon apparently makes a pair specifically for winter sports. Though at $270 they are stupid expensive.

Have her try on a bunch of different pairs from different manufacturers.
Like boots and helmets, fit will be different for everyone.
Also, have her try them with her helmet on if she wears one while riding.

I have a pair of those for myself, Nike's. I love them, they are amazing especially in Norway where conditions change drastically during the day. But out of budget for this. So I think a two lens solution is probably a lot better.

fwiw the Smith Sensor Mirror is the best all around lense in case you go for a single lense solution. Here in CO I like to have a pair of dark lense for when its bright out (usually) then a yellow for any version of overcast.

Them M3's with the magnets look pretty slick

I can't actually find the smith sensor mirror lense? Is that the Sol X Mirror lens?

edit: Found it now, on end of season sale as well

I'm fairly certain that Smith makes a photochromatic lens too
