Any specific brands with the most resistant anti-fog layer on its goggles?

And apart from amber colored lens, what other colors would be the best for skiing mainly on cloudy and snowy days? It sucks when everything turns orange.

Oakley A-Frames with Hi-Intensity Yellow or Hi-Intensity Blue (basically a yellow lens as well) - I've had 3 pairs over the last 12 years and they all work great. A-frames are pricey, but go on sale for like 50-60% of on whiskeymilitia.com every once in a while.

Here's what they look like:

Every pair of Oakley's I have owned has been great about not fogging up on me. I highly suggest the H.I. Yellow lense from them. It's super functional for all weather days except the brightest of bright bluebird days.

Oakley is a great google to look at. I have a pair of crowbars and love them. They have a 2 lens technology which has trapped air in the middle which makes the lens anti-fog.:)
Until moisture seeps between the two lenses and you're FUCKED.

That being said I'll probably rock oakleys till I die, most comfortable google for me and imo the most legit selection of lenses. They never fog if moisture doesn't get between the lenses. My personal favorite is the hi amber polarized, but I use that on sunny and cloudy days. For purely overcast a hi yellow or hi blue would be better.

I have the tanner hall crowbar with fire iridium lenses. It works perfect because i usually ride when the sun is out.

Everything becomes yellow through both the hi yellow and the hi blue lens??

I think it was a market thing as the high intensity blue was actually a yellow lens with a bluish sheen on it. This is what is looks like



Seems like they discontinued it and there is only hi intensity yellow (probably to avoid confusion).



The color doesn't matter so much as the percent transmission (how much light is let through). An average goggle is like 20-40%, the hi intensity yellow is 80%.
