Best goggle to get for day and night boarding?
 
Hello. I'm looking to get a new set of goggles this season and I want one that would last me a very long time, maybe forever. I'm mainly focusing on Oakley just because I like their products but other brands may also work with me. I need a goggle where I can switch the lenses to block the sun light for day boarding and clear ones for night boarding. If you have a better opinion on lenses color for day and night boarding, please recommend! It would be nice if the goggle also came in the color green. If anyone can help me find one, I would appreciate it!

Budget doesn't matter. Well, to be more reasonable... less than $300.. Thank you!!

Oakley airbrakes with hi intensity yellow and fire iridium lenses, all you need for a little under $300

pretty much any goggle out there is an option. it's the matter of if it fits your face or not. then getting the lenses you need for conditions. the standard for oaks are definitely crowbars.

I used to do a lot of night riding and the only thing I liked was a 100% clear lense... During bright sun I like Smiths 'Rose Copper' colour, and for low light I like Smiths 'Gold Lite' colour.

My point is I actually have three pairs of goggles. It's easier to replace a $40 pair of goggles if I land on my face than try to find a matching frame a couple years later if it breaks.

If there are two lenses to get regardless of the oakley frame you choose those are them. Will cover all you need.

Thanks for the replies everyone. It was very helpful. I guess for lens, I'll be getting Hi-yellow for night and fire iridium for day. I just need to choose the frame now. I believe crowbar would work the best for me and now I don't know if I should get it custom or get that tanner hill one that comes with a fire iridium.

What would you choose? I'd like to get the goggles in green. Tanner hill goggle has a slight green in it but looks pretty cool, in custom I can make it all green but it looks like too much green.. I'd like to throw some black in it also for the strap but there aren't any option for black straps so I don't know..

I have the Crowbars with fire iridium and hi intensity yellow.

Actually, Fire Iridium is only a good lens for maybe 5-10% of conditions. Way too dark for most riding, even on most bluebird days.
