That's why having a stock comes in handy! I rarely need something RIGHT NOW... So I can buy gloves, goggles, jackets, etc. on sale and pay less than 50% of MSRP. Plus I usually buy last years stock to save money... My current low light goggles were $40 and I'm happy with them.

I have a pair of A-Frames with the Blue Irridium lens, and I have a pair of Wisdoms with the HI Yellow lens. I'm covered whether it's sunny or flat.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Another for Airbrakes. I'm running those with Smoke for day and H.I. Yellow for night. Another good lens is the H.I. Persimmon, going to pick up one of those soon.

Alright, I'll be hitting Bear Mountain next week for day boarding. I'll need to choose a goggle before then. I mostly go night boarding so I thought hi yellow would be a good choice but I know it won't be so good for day boarding because of the sunlight... or is that not true? I want the best one for day boarding that isn't too dark, too much color, and pretty clear but at the same time blocks the sunlight. I researched a bit and thought Pink iridium works well. I also heard it works really well at night too so I probably won't even have to change my lens. Either way, just for the day.. what lens would you guys choose that'll work good for one day boarding and mostly night afterwards. If I have to get replacement lens, I'll probably do so later.

Fire iridium looks so sexy because of the mirror but I hear it's very dark.. How will intense yellow work in day? Is everything you see on the slope is yellow when you wear it? Anyways, please recommend for me. I'll be choosing a goggle online by tomorrow or the next day. Thank you.

I find that on a really bright day, the HI Yellow lets in to much light, which is kind of blinding for me. If it's bright, I'll use my A-Frames with the Blue Irridium. Works better for sun filtering than the HI Yellow for sure. The Blue Irridium works for most conditions, and the HI Yellow is great for the flat light, and night. For me, those are the only 2 lenses I need.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I have a pair of Smith Phenoms. Came with ignitor lenses which is good for bright days (35% vlt i believe) and permission lens for low light and night (70% vlt). They work extremely well and I can't complain about the price. Only $35 for everything barely used!
