Default Favorite Goggles & Lens Type??

What are your most favorite goggles. I've been looking for some Electric or Anon goggles since I want the super huge lens. I want a good all around lens for both Blue Bid and Grey Bird days so I am thinking an Amber color. Any suggestions out there?

I ride with a clear yellow lens at all times. Works on bright days, flat light days and at night. I tried going with the huge lens in the EG2 but it just pinched my nose shut. The Dragon APX look pretty sweet. I am thinking that they wouldn't pinch as much since they don't use a rigid frame.

Favorite goggle: VZ Fishbowls - insane peripheral vision, like not wearing goggles at all
Favorite lens: Smith Sensor Mirror - best all around lens I've used. A little light for full on bluebird days, but great for flat light conditions. Amazing detail.

I second the VZ Fishbowls.

I have the John Jacksons, and the firechome lense is even good in low light conditions. Plus they look awesome

There are always deals online, there is no reason not to have a sunny day pair and cloudy day pair.

OR get those new Oakleys with easy removable lenses.

I take the extra 20 seconds to avoid fingerprints on my lens

Thanks all for the insight! I ended up going with these, the Anon Comrade Bob:

Just picked them up and have to say that they are dope! I had heard about the Electric EG2 pinching the nose so I ruled that out. Just went for it w/ the Anon's and have to say that I love these! No pinching on the nose, well vented and, great peripheral vision. All around a sick pair of goggles!
