Cool, thanks. I wasn't sure if there were certain ones that worked better for anti-fogging. I know with paintball masks (especially here in FL), when i switched from a single lens crap mask to a dual pane lens VForce Grill the difference was astounding. In either sport the last thing you want is fog creeping up in your site. But I guess the big difference between the two are that your breath is out of the way here, so probably not as big of a deal. Haven't seen anything in the way of dual pane lenses for MX goggles, just coatings. So I assume its more just about preference of style and fit, with maybe some having better venting here and there.

Yeah man, I'm interested to see how well the fire iridium lens works. Comes with a dark grey lens already. I didn't go all out on the goggles. Got some Oakley MX Proven's. Didn't see them any cheaper than $50, so actually ordered them straight from Oakley for free shipping. Man for the $ that company makes they really need to give thier site a complete overhaul. Lotta clunky, redundant and mislabeled stuff there. Was surprised.

hm I haven't gone there before I will check it out. When you get your goggles let me know how you like them I have been looking at some Oakley's. I will check their sight now.
