i think they are more for tactical use than downhilling. you should get some downhill goggles instead. just don't try to use the downhill goggles for tactical use.

Seriously? Wear whatever you want to protect your eyes. If the goggles are comfortable, breathe well, protect your eyes, and fit while wearing your helmet, most of your criteria should be met.

I'm using Smith Fuel V.2, because: 1) I got them dirt cheap from the Motorcycle Superstore; and 2) replacement lenses for the Fuel/Intake line are readily available and you can even get light-sensitive (Photogray®-like) lenses for $11.99; and 3) they fit.
