Your Favorite Goggles

So I am probably going to get the opportunity to get some new goggles. I tried some fully polarized Giros that I liked and I was wondering what type of goggles you guys like and what some recommendations are. I want some that are fully reflective like the ones I tried in the picture.

Its literally what fits your face best and the lighting that you're riding in. I had Electrics that I loved but they got too beaten up..Got new Anon goggles that suck shit I'm hoping they break soon so I have a good reason to buy a new pair

I thought polarized lenses prevent you from seeing Ice? Since they eliminate the glare.

I am currently using the Oakley Splicer with Blue Lenses for the CA Sun, very comfortable and works with both my nose ridge and helmet.

I have a pair of pretty sick Smith Prodigies, but the lens isn't super reflective; don't get the Sensor Mirror if you need that,. I would recommend the Platinum Mirror or Green/Red Sol X lenses for daytime if you look into Smith. They are fully reflective, also.

No, those things are a charm during the day. Especially on sunny days. I cna see everything just fine. The only time I have troubles is overcast days and at night. I can see fine, just not the terrain. Everything kinda blends in. It came with a free lens and I just change it.

I have a pair of Oakley Elevate and Electric EGB2 and i can wear the electrics all day without taking them off but i think its just because the viewing area is larger. Most of the time if you spend a little money they come with a free extra lens. i got the electrics for 90 and they came with a lens for day and night.

I looked at the EG2 and I really liked them, but they aren't polarized Is polarized vs. non-polarized that big of a difference. I liked the goggles, but I think I should get polarized.
