Oakley O-frames, good goggles?

In my search for a pair of cheap goggles with a yellow lens for night riding, I have come upon the Oakley O-frames. Has anyone here used them. Since they are not exactly Oakley's top of the line, are they still nice?

Which Oakley lenses are best for night riding?

Are there any other goggles in this price range(less than $60) that have a yellow lens that I should look into buying?

Yes, they are nice.

HIYellow is the best lens (excluding plain clear) for night riding.

You might also want to look for some Smith Phenom goggles (spherical) with the Sensor Mirror Lens ($77.97 on Backcountry, more than $60, but spherical > flat)

For pure bluebird days, you're going to want a darker tint. Sensor Mirror is pretty clear as it's primarily a flat to low light lens.

As long as it does not brighten everything up like yellow does, then it will be fine for me. Almost all my riding will be done at night under the lights.

I am thinking about getting the phenoms with the sensor mirror so that I can use them at night, yet hopefully they will work alright on a sunny day.

I am also considering the Spy Soldiers. Which spy lens is closest to the sensor mirror performance wise?
