Default Goggles and lens tint choice

Hey! Im buying a new pair of goggles, and because of a tight budget it has to be allround.

Im stuck between these two at the moment.

Oakley Ambush with persimmon tint


Anon Figment Painted with silver amber tint


Any thoughts?

persimmon's going to get the best all-around use probably that's why it's one of (if not *the*) most common lens tint especially on entry-level goggles. If it's usually sunny where you ride then the silver amber will be OK, too but they might not perform as well in low-light conditions.

Cheapest Dragon DX i can get is with an ionized blue lens. Else it would be a D2 with persimmon lens. Differense between the DX and D2?

Getting the Ambush for 80usd, pretty cheap in Norway. The DX and D2 are 100usd here on sale.

Too bad you have a tight budget, otherwise I think the Oakley Airframe series would be a no-brainer. You get 2 lenses with the goggles (which two depends on which model you buy) and the mechanism for changing the lenses is dead easy.

I've made birthday-present hints already to my spousal unit.
