Carrying extra lenses

For those of you with goggles that have interchangeable lenses-- do you carry an extra lens with you on the hill? If so, how?

I just got a pair of Anon M1's and I'll probably carry an extra lens in a goggle bag stuffed in my jacket pocket, but I'd love to hear what all you smart kids do.

I bring extra lenses but don't carry them around. If I find I need to change up, I just go to the car.

Doesn't happen very often.

My Volcom jacket has an inner goggle pocket that wraps around your ribs so the lens is protected in there. I'd probably put them in a couple goggle bags. If you break them in there, you probably were headed for broken ribs anyway.

I sometimes carry an extra pair or two and when I do I put them in my inner jacket pocket. Lines my side/front of stomach perfectly.

I try and always wear the red sensor lens, but if it's bad at the top and not at the bottom sometimes I'll switch on the lift to the blue sensor mirror.

Saves me a trip to the car when fresh tracks are waiting.
