    Mornin monkeys. I was just looking around the vast interwebs for a new pair of goggles and soon realized that I don't know much about them and what makes a good pair etc.....
    So here's my question. What makes a good pair of goggles in terms of riding in/out of the shade, durability, etc...?

    GO.....

    I've rocked these for 2 years. They are pretty cheap, you can get a variety of lenses, and they're comfy. Plus you can afford 2 pairs at that price. I've seen them on ebay for under $20 too.

    Scott, Smith, Spy and okaly all make great high end googles and some cheaper ones. Smith makes a crazy tear off thing you can buy that rolls across the lens, and spy megnetos have removable face foam. Other then those 2 things most goggles are the same just get something that fits your helmet and your face well.

    I always used to use Scott goggles but I find that SPY's fit better.
