Well, I like spherical lenses.

This year I considered riding Oakley Crowbars, Electric EG2s, Smith I/Os, or Von Zipper Feenoms.

After trying them all on, I decided to get the Electric EG2s. I liked how much more peripheral vision they provided.

They aren't all the same. Some people have a hard time finding goggles that will fit their face properly (gaps where the foam doesn't seal against their face). Some people have a hard time finding goggles that don't pinch their nose/nostrils when wearing them (which makes it tougher to breath and still keep them on while out riding). Others are sticklers for having as wide a field-of-vision as possible... and others still look for goggles that look cool or will mate with their helmets properly, or allow them to wear glasses under them.

Honestly, you won't know what to look for in a goggle until you have worn a pair long enough to find a problem with it. My advice would be to find something that fits properly, vents well enough to eliminate fog and has the ability to swap lenses.

Smith Fuse ($30 for last season's at Marshalls/T.J. Maxx, $50-$60 new) is a decent place to start if you aren't hung up on getting spherical lenses.

I see russian in your nick =)

Вообще лучше заказывать что-нибудь верхнее прошлых сезонов. На ибэе можно найти anon realm за 60 баксов. Верхняя маска. Отличная вентиляция, дизайн и обзор. Электрики тоже круто, но они там от 130 баксов. Дороговато ИМХО. Можно найти Smith IO, но я их не юзал, и сказать ничего не могу.

Мой голос за реалм.
