I have a pair of cheap oakleys ($30) and they work fine, but next year I would like to get a new pair from this year so theyre cheaper. I dont know what its called when from the side view, the lense is flat, like | , where as the more expensive ones are curved (, what is it called? :dunno: and are there a good pair that are decently priced? thanks!

You should look to spend at least $80 for a good pair of goggles(new). I used to have a pair of cheap $20 Gordini's with a plastic lens and it was shaped like "|". Finally decided to buy a pair of K2's for $80 Really good goggle but scratched up the lens way to much, and would've bought a replacement lens but K2 no longer sells goggles. Finally I went goggle shopping on Boxing Day(Canadian Black Friday) and got two pairs of Oakley A frames for $50 each (Normally retail for $155 each). So If your looking to buy a good goggle for a good price either wait or buy from a reputable brand like Oakley, Anon, Electric, Vonzipper etc.

Thanks for the info, thats a great deal! do you know of any that are your "best bang for your buck" kinda deal? and what are some features in the more expensive goggles that arent in the more cheaper kind, I mean whats the difference between a $80 pair and a $150 pair?

Couple of weeks back I bought this seasons Sinner Scope goggles. They were 40 euros and they had Sintec+ technology... meaning no more changing glasses. They worked absolutely perfectly. I went boarding two weeks ago and we had every sort of weather there is thrown at us. I have to say, the goggles surprised me as sight was always good, no wind, no fog, it was brilliant!

If this is going to be your one and only goggle I would definitely recommend getting an Amber lens. Scratch resisting coating, anti-fog coating, and dual lenses are a must. Make sure it's comfortable and there are no gaps between you face and the goggle(Gaps usually happen in the nose area). If you wear a helmet make sure your goggle will fit with your helmet (Most goggle will fit anyway). Interchangeable lenses and Polarization are also nice. Otherwise buy the best goggle you can afford cause without anything covering your eyes is like torture running into snow flakes all the time. Also remember to never wipe the inside of your goggle.
