Hey guys, thanks for all the input! I really appreciate it.

I saw the Spy Soldier Todd Richards last night on whiskeymilitia for about $40+ shipped and I was tempted to get them, but nobody really has said anything about that tint... it is like some crazy blue and I assume it's for sunny conditions. Anyway they were a bit too flashy for me.

I just saw Spy Omega Goggles that have a gold mirror lens. They are just under $40 shipped. And from what I gathered from u guys, mirror is good for sunny, and orange is good for mixed conditions? Is that like a mix of both? lol. Anyway, I think the color scheme on it is rad and it matches my jacket and the price is right so I jumped on them regardless.

I'm going to wait until I get to the store and see if maybe I can try on some pairs before I decide to pull the trigger on any more, but i'll have all of your suggestions in mind.

Oh I saw dragon maces or dragon dx or something on whiskey yesterday or the day before, I forget. I think I was turned off by the colors and tints they offered or something because I wasn't really thinking about it. I forget.

I almost bought these last year when I got the feenoms... the problem I had was I couldn't find them in a store anywhere to try on so I didn't want to drop $150+ for goggles without knowing how they fit. The technology is crazy though... very similar to the Oakley sunglasses that do the same thing.

The Omega's are good but the Soldiers have better peripheral vision. That said, spy makes a good goggle. Don't buy a second set, just get a different lens. The Gold Mirror I believe is actually very dark and designed for super bright blue-bird days. I'd buy an orange or rose lens for everyday use
