Hurry! I just got my new ones yesterday, which I had to get before leaving for CO next week. I went with the Dragon Rogue. You should also look into the Von Zipper Feenom. They look sick, are very comfortable, huge field of vision, and some come with an extra lens too. I second other people's suggestions like Dragon Mace, Smith I/O, Smith Prodigy, Oakley Crowbar, Oakley A-Frame.

I assume you mean polarized?

Just like polarized sunglasses they reduce sun glare...

I got a new pair of Von Zipper Feenoms this season for like 90 bucks shipped i believe it was..

Good deal considering it comes with two lenses...

The bonus lens is a blue middle of the road lense for overcast/slightly sunny days...ordered it in the Bronze which is their sunny lens, so i got one something for pretty much every condition...

i'm a big fan of the Oakley Crowbar series because of customization... And the fact that they are really comfortable to wear and have a pretty wide field of view.

I've been riding for a while with not very good equipment except for my boots, bindings and board. This year I've been upgrading everything. I just ordered a ninja suit, I've got some awesome gloves already but the one thing I would like to upgrade is my goggles.

I've searched and searched what to get but have been unable to decide on anything specific. Don't know if I should go Dragon, Oakley, Smith, etc. I don't know what color or tint the goggles need to be. The goggles I have are Smith Amber lenses and I have used them for about 3 years.

I need advice on a great pair of goggles. What tint/color do I get that is pretty universal? What brand? Any specific style? I do wear a helmet so they need to be able to fit on my face with a helmet.

Help guys!
In fact, there are many Sports Snowboard Goggles in the market. It depends on your demand and interest. In my opinion, the Goggles which have anti-fog coating is the best choice.

They're just using it to say the outer lens is mirrored.

Ionized is Dragon's terminology to describe the Mirror coating that various lenses have. Ionized/Mirrored lenses are best for bright days. Look through a pair of Ionized lenses on a bright day and you'll be in heaven.

By the way, those Rogues are nice. The Amber lens would be a good all-around lens. I still favor their pink or pink ionized though just because the tint makes things look better to me.

Leo, I've been looking at the EG2s for quite some time now, I can't find them anywhere, and if I do..they don't have the color lenses I want-Red Chrome. Any idea where I look? Thanks.
