Review: These goggles are super lightweight and very comfortable to wear over a long day playing scenarios like I do. These are now my main goggles when I play

The stock lens is a single pane lens, which in my mind is worthless. It can and has fogged up on me. I bought a double pane thermal lens for the goggles and the fogging has gotten much better. The high definition lens is really great in all light conditions and has excellent clarity. It is my favorite lens to date on any goggle system.

I thought Spectra lenses were hard to change, well these are equally as difficult the first few times you must take out the lens to clean them.

The airflow around your eyes isn't as good as the JT Spectras, and this is because the Spectras have ventilation holes both above and below the lenses, but the Dyes only have them up top. It seems that when I sweat the hot moist air doesn't vent out as quickly as with my Spectras if I am not actively moving and keeping the airflow moving. Dye does make a fan for these, and I think I will get it.

I got a second set of earpieces for mine, the digi camo ones. They are look really nice and help make my goggles stand out. The stock black ones I keep as a back up.

For $100 bucks I would expect a goggle of this quality to come standard with a double pane thermal lens, not this fog-resistent coating crap.
Conclusion: A good buy if you want to spend $100. i highly recommend the double pane thermal lenses if you buy these.
