Polarized goggles?
 
Are polarized goggles necessary for the north east? Looking to pick up a pair of Electic eg2s and wondering if I should go with polarized?

I like them a lot, but others will say they washout the snow when it's not sunny, and you can't see the ice. My suggestion would be a pair of polarized lenses for bluebird days, and a pair of blueblockers (orange lenses) or something similar for overcast/snowing days.

You ever worn polarized sunglasses for driving? Try it, I doubt you'll ever go back...

Thanks for the help. I think I'll get a polarized lens and a regular lens.

Don't waste your $ on polarized. They are good for water like fishing, but not good for snow. Read up on it.

i agree. no need for polarized lens, get bronze red chrome or bronze silver chrome. works better on sunny days and orage or blue lens for overcast or snowing conditions...
