Just follow the instructions that come with the goggles...
Store them in the micro bag they come in.
Do not wipe the inside of the lense when they are wet and only clean the lenses with the bag. I have never had the durability issues with the foam or lenses described in this thread.

popping up this old thread I had started, as I still didnt buy the new goggles...
just wondering if things have dramatically changed since last time I checked in or not.
For example, I saw Giro is also making goggles these days.
Should I still stick to most popular brand and models like Oakley? consider I am in Italy, so not all brands you have are available here
Also, I am still torn between "just one pair of lens" or two, but you have to carry one...

I love my A-frames with Pink Iridium. I did however have a persimmon/amber lens. I liked them, but I like my Pink Iridiums much more.

My Spy Tevors have the persimmon lens, which works great for me on sunny/bright days, but not well at all in low light. For low light, I use my trusty old Spy Blizzards with the pink lens.

I'm also shopping for some new goggles...
I find a bit of sight restriction with my Spy Targa IIs. I have a pretty big head.
Any advice on some bigger lenses for guys like me who have to buy an XL helmet?

I'm cheap, and I break things, so I don't have goggles with easily swappable lenses. Instead I have a pair of Smith goggles with the "gold lite" lens (which is orange) for low light days, and Smith with RC36 Polarized lenses for days I'm 100% sure will be bright.

So far since I bought the orange ones I've probably used them 90% of the time. When it's blue bird you shouldn't have trouble seeing anything, so lens colour doesn't make much difference to me, it's low light where the orange really shines and that's when I have the hardest time reading the snow.

So with all the fancy goggles out there, I ride with a $40 pair of goggles with plain orange lenses. And I'm not shy about spending money on gear, that's just what works for me!

I have some Von Zippers with a Bronze Chrome lens, works well for me in all conditions, except at night.

I have tried using a iridium lens, but it seemed like overkill, I couldn't really get used to it.

How were the persimmon in lower light conditions?
