All depends on your face buddy

I personally own 2 pairs of A Frames. One with a Fire Lens, the other with a nearly clear lens and it covers all my riding needs.

Smith makes great goggles as well. I recommend going to an REI or something and trying some on, then buying what you want somewhere cheap.

The Smith OTG goggles are supposed to rarely fog

Oakley goggles are excellent against fog. The only time my goggles have fogging problems is after I wipe out hard and get snow inside the lens. Even then, after I let them dry off they are fine. Also, never wear your goggles on the top of your head. Keep them over your eyes if you are going to use them. Only take them off when you are going inside for a break. When you wear them on the top of your head, the heat causes condensation which makes your goggles fog.

Oakley splices are really nice because they don't have much plastic around the nose piece which is important for us snowboarders. I personally use the A-Frames. Just looks better on my big head.

Oakley, Smith, Electric, Zeal, Dragon... <--- all make great lenses in their top tiers.

What about Ski Snowboard Skate Sports Goggles ( Black Frame + Color Coated Lens ) ? Goggles Lens with anti-fog coating are polycarbonate, shatterproof and rated UV400 to block out the harmful ultraviolet light; Ski Glasses Lens is also scratch resistant.

I say go with Oakley Splice (I have Crobar), I have always been a fan of Oakley but was never limited to their products. I'd also recommend Dragon Mase (Blue lens) and Smith I/O. I have had all of them and they have worked great for me with no fogging whatsoever...

A Frames are nice too but the Splice are just redesigned Crobars and look sick!
