Need help finding the right I/Os lenses.

I would like to say thanks in advance to whomever helps me out.

So, I'm fairly new to snowboarding. Rode about 7 sessions and never had goggles, just sunglasses. Now i want some goggles and I'm trying to figure out what lenses to get. I imagine you will need one for each condition? I suppose one for bright days, cloudy and night time, don't know if I'm missing one or two other conditions.

Night time, I suppose would be clear? For the rest, I am unsure. I was thinking red sensor for cloudy days, and maybe the blackout for bright days. I'm looking at getting the Coven model, either white or black, or the black/white facet. But am open to another color if I am recommended different lenses.

Just go with the Blue Sensor Mirror. Best all-around goggle lens I've ever used. If it's not dark enough for you for bluebird days, pick up another lens to use for bluebird. But, the BSM is a great lens for everything short of all out bluebird days and is still quite usable on those.

Ok, thank you.. One more question. What about the Blackout/Red Sensor combo, vs the Blue Sensor/Ignitor Combo? Which one would you choose and why?

Sorry, i know you answered already, and i should be able to come to a conclusion off of that.

Get whicheverr combo comes with the blue sensor. Like linvillegorge said it's the most versitile lens Smith has. I ride with that lens 90% of the time.

What he said....... if your eyes can handle it the red sensor mirror will give you better contrast
