Good goggle lenses

I'm looking at a pair of Dragon Mace goggles. They come with a blue ionized lens. I'm wondering what conditions they will be good for riding in because I really don't want to spend another $40 on another lens if I don't have to. Also, I know clear lenses are the best bet for night riding, but will theses still be pretty light or not really?

Not sure about your lens/goggle choice, but smith I/O will offer you everything you need!

If I could get the Smith Sensor Mirror lens in the Von Zipper Fishbowl goggle, I would have everything I want in a goggle.

Not sure about top of the line, but they're pretty damn stout. Don't touch the inside lens while wet and you're good to go..........with tons of lens options for the obsessive compulsive type like me.
