I have a pair of cheap smiths with amber lens, Dragon DXS with jet blue/ionized lens and just got the Anon Hawkeye with siver mirror lens. I like the Hawkeye the best....FOV is great and work real good on sunny days.

I just got a pair of the Anon Hawkeye for Christmas. They are effing sweet. I need to get a replacement lens though for low light.

I don't really recommend going the Dragon DX route. If you're going to do Dragon, go with the Rogue or Mace. I had a pair of Dragon DX's and they were actually good for a non-spherical lens. The problem came from the overall longevity and design. It blocked my lower peripheral vision more than my current Oakley A-Frames. Also, the anti-fog coating on those did not last very long. Besides, spherical lenses are just superior to flat lenses. Not only is your view undistorted, but it is much clearer.

If you have a high budget, consider these...

Smith I/O or I/OS for smaller face
Electric EG 5
Oakley Splice

You can find good deals on last year's Oakley A-frames, just be warned that replacement lenses cost an arm and a leg from Oakley.

As for lens color, I personally like the Oakley Pink Iridium as an all around lens. Just go to the company you are purchasing from and look at their lens light transmission chart. More light transmission equals darker conditions. Less light transmission equals brighter conditions. Pick something in the middle.

If you go Smith, I find that their Ignitor lens is great for all-around.

Hey Leo, I'm seeing that the EG.5's are for "smaller faces", is this right?

Sorry, I meant to recommend the EG 2.

You are correct though. Frame size for EG 5 is small and EG 1 is medium. The EG 2 has very large coverage and fits medium-large faces.

What do you think about these Leo?

At $50 shipped I won't be out that much money either.
