Grave digging on this thread.

Just ordered some EG2's and was wondering if anyone had a preference/recommendation on a low light lens?

I always carry 2 as my depth perception takes a huge hit when the light changes. Almost wiped out at 45 MPH last weekend when cloud cover set out before I could switch out my EG1's.

What color is best for flat light/when the sun is behind the mountain? I had to take my googles off I couldn't see. I think mine were red or smoke (gotta go home and check)

Ive got a pair of 2.5's. Love the peripheral vision. I had to buy them after a bad experience with my anons on a super foggy, dark day. Freaked me out.

I have a yellow lens for my EG2 that is great for flat light and storm days.

Thanks Rufus. Until this season is over, I'm keeping my pinkies in my EG1's. I can easily just switch out goggs when I need to.

I was thinking yellow or clear for flat light. I might just go clear and ensure I can rock the heaviest fog on earth.

Would you all choose the EG2 over the Dragon APX? I want plenty of peripheral this year because there were far too many times I nearly swiped into a nearby skiier.

why not just try both on and see which has a better field of vision/what fits better.

I love my Eg2 goggles. I've had em for ~3 seasons now and i wouldn't swap em out for any other. Probably going to get another pair with a bright lens for the upcoming season.

it's all personal preference though

Keep an eye out on Whiskey Militia. I've gotten my past two pairs of EG2s for about $65. Only have the orange/chrome lenses. Works well for me in any light except a HEAVY snowing day. I'm not sure any lens would have changed that. All of the goggles listed are great. I'd just look for a deal unless you're hell-bent on a certain one.
