I've had some oakley O frames for years and they never fogged even when I was riding the coldest, snowiest conditions with face masks and they simply refused to fog.(my hypothesis is the ventilation) I wore them out and just replaced them with some oakley ambush's but haven't gotten to try them yet. I have friends with Bolle's and dragon's and they have a hell of a time with fogging when it gets snowy and cold. FYI Most pro riders who don't have goggle sponsers seem to be rocking oakleys (Travis rice was rocking crowbars but now wears quiksilver because he is sponsored by quiksilver.)
As far as lenses are concerned I would recommend a pink lense for flat light(cloudy). in photography they use pink filters to increase contrast in in images when they are flat and pink lenses do the same thing. I would recommend a lense which works pretty well in all conditions for every other day because even if it's blubird you'll probably end up riding in shaded areas whether its in the trees or just in the shade of the mountain late in the day. Tried and true persimmon is always a solid choice for this.

Thats what I use. I have a pair of smoke polarized lenses for sunny days and the yellow lenses for night/cloudy days. Love them and would recommend them to anyone. Large field of view, very comfortable and never fog. Some people say you need to buy a helmet strap if you plan on using them with once because the strap the come with isn't long enough but when I go to the park and wear a helmet my straps make it around it just fine.

I use Spy Zeds, and I personaly love them. They never fog at all, are extremely comfy and come in all sorts of awesome looking prints. They also come with a spare lense and can be used in any weather condition out of the box.

The Spy Zed is a very nice goggle for the price, I picked up a pair off WM and I like them better than my Orbits.
