Hey everybody first post here and was looking for some input on picking a goggle, I know there are a bunch of threads on them but most of them seem to be 2 or 3 years old. I'm looking for a goggle with good quality lenses that are interchangeable and preferably come with 2 lenses to start, I'm coming from plain old rose colored goggles so I don't really have a clue on what the best lenses out there currently are. I have a medium sized mans face and I don't currently own a helmet yet but I'm looking into the Giro Discord or a similarly styled helmet with a brim. Also I wear glasses but have contacts so an OTG goggle isn't necessary but it would be nice. I have done a little reasearch and here is what I narrowed I came up with so far for with my most preferred option at the top..
Lens color: Yellow with Green spectra/ Bronze with light blue spectra
I really like the way that these goggles look and spy seems to have good quality lenses. From what I have been reading these two color options seem good to cover all my lighting conditions. My only concern is the lens mounting system looks like it could release the lenses in a yard sale type fall since there isn't really anything latching the lenses on, is this a problem with these goggles I would appreciate any feedback from people with spy googles with the "lock steady" type of latch.
Lens color: Happy Rose with Dark Blue Spectra/ Happy Bronze Green Spectra
The bravo's bigger brother supposedly better field of view and maybe I can fit my glasses in them. These are also available in Spy's "happy lens" does this really help improve your vision it seem's a little gimmicky so I'm not quite sure of it. These come with Rose base color lens which I know are good for sunny/ partly cloudy days from experience but is bronze really a good choice for flat light cloudy days? This also features Spy's lock steady lens change system which as previously stated I'm a little concerned about
Lens color: Dark smoke/ yellow-blue ionized lens
These goggles look to have a sturdier latching system then the spy goggles and they are said to come with a scratch resistant coating which seems nice or is this just a marketing gimmick? The only concern for these goggles is the lens color offered doesn't seem that good for partly cloudy or low light conditions.
Lens color: 1.Red Sol X/ Blue Sensor
2. Igniter/ Red Sensor
3. Gold Sol X/ Blue Sensor
The smith IO series is the goggle I see talked about most on the older thread post and people seem to love the Sensor lenses on them. The lenses color options available seem to suit every condition. The only thing is I'm not to fond of the look of these goggles but if the lenses are more superior then the other ones out there then I can overlook their styling.

So I'd love to hear your opinions about the current goggles that are out there and which one would be the best all around goggle. If anyone has used the lock steady system by spy I'd love to hear feedback as I really like these googles. If there are any other googles that I missed Let me know.
