Right now the clymb has Spy googles on sale. I picked up a pair of Spy Platoons from them for $60 (from $140) a few weeks ago.

Also, take a look at gear trade portion of this forum, also check tgr.com's forums, and newschoolers.com, there are good condition goggles that pop up this time of year for killer prices since people are trying to get cash for some new piece of gear

thanks I'll keep that in mind for the future. I already purchased a pair of goggles. I got a used pair free 2 seasons ago in almost perfect condition. It came with two lenses as well. Smith Phenom for only $35 total. felt like a steal so I jumped on it right away!

I have the Prodigies (outdated Prophecies with a slight change in design, lenses are the same though) and I really like them. Never tried Spy, but I've heard the Dragon Maces have horrible peripheral vision. Go with the Smiths.

(Edit: You got Smiths, Phenoms are great! I tried those on too and I ended up getting my Prodigies just because they had a sick frame design, but the Phenoms are really good too.)

Thanks for the input. I really like the Phenoms so far too. I haven't tried them snowboarding yet, but I'm expecting a lot out of them from what I've been able to see so far!

Go big. It's all about the big lenses. EG2's like everyone else was recommending. They're on geartrade usually for like $60 average. Me personally, I have my ever so pricey Quiksilver Hubbles, T Rice edition But seriously, wearing other goggles is like putting side blinders on.

I don't know if you read the posts yet or not but I already bought a pair of goggles. EG2s were pretty expensive and only came with one type of lens. Instead, I used geartrade and got a pair of Smith Phenoms for $35 which came with an ignitor and sensor lens so I can use one during the day and one at night and snowy days. The extra lens itself is a $55 value. The lenses might not be quite as big as the EG2 but I don't think that will matter to me since my previous goggles were about a 10+ year old pair of Smiths I found at a thrift store for less than a buck.
