I wanted to know that what type of weather you're suppose to wear the green sol x mirror? sunny days,cloudy days ,nighttime???
Sunny, clear skies is ideal for the Green Sol X. It is my go to lens for blue bird days.
Not A Good Work Goggle
I found that this google didn't hold up very long in wet snow. the lenses split from one another making it so the chamber between the lenses fogged- which takes a few hours to clear up. These definitely fog if your working up a sweat, too. If you're going to doing any BC or working in the snow I wouldn't recommend these. I love Smith, but not for a "working" goggle. I'd recommend the new interchangeable goggles released by Smith. They're pricey but worth the investment. Other than that- the fit is good and they are comfy on your face.

I wear prescription glasses will they fit over my glasses?
No. I tried this, and scratched the lenses.

My Dad got these for me as a Xmas gift-they are great! They are large enough to keep the snow/wind off my face and I love the difference it makes on the snow cover! Sweet!

Time to look sexy
Bought these for my wife. Sensor lens works great. Super sexy womens goggle. Fits her head and face really well. Fits her helmet really well.

What is a good google to get where I can possiably interchange lens for both skiing and climbing ? And what is a good lens for skiing, and what is good for climbing ?
Good news, Sarah, Smith makes some great lenses for both of those activities. You can easily swap out the lenses in most Smith frames, including the Heiress. However, if you are planning to swap out your lenses on the fly, or if you simply dont have the luxury of a few minutes, look at the Smith I/O.
For skiing, or any activity in the mountains, I would recommend either the rc36 (my favorite) or the Ignitor Mirror. These are essentially all purpose lenses that help to increase your depth perception when it gets stormy, and continue to protect your eyes if the sun decides to peek through the clouds. There are more stylish and fancy options out there, but for my money it is the rc36.
For mountaineering, or any really bright light situations, go with the Sol X mirror. According to Smith, the Gold Sol X has an extremely low visual light transmittance (7%). The Green Sol X is slightly brighter at 17%, and the Red is 18%. The important thing is that your eyes will be well protected if you choose the Sol X, or any smith lenses for that matter. Hope this helps, and have fun out there.
These goggles are a perfect fit on my face and even better paired with my Smith helmet.. and they're styling.
I bought these for my girlfriend before we went on a ski trip. They look great, and they fit her better than most of the goggles we tried on in stores. They work nicely with her Giro Helmet.
Bulky but worth it!
Super cool look on the mountain, actually got complimented on my goggles twice which has never happened before at all!! No fog factor at all for me, fit was fantastic and comfort level was excellent. I would say that they did look slightly bulky when not wearing a helmet but the designs are pretty cool so it evened out. Extremely happy with these goggles!
These are my third pair of goggles and they are by far my best pair ever. My second pair of women-specific goggles, these have a wider lens, which I appreciate. They fit great with my Giro Helmet, which I was a little concerned about. I have the Sensor Mirror lens which is awesome. Some that I have worn them, the days have started with super flat light and turned into a blue-bird days and it works great in both conditions. I have also worn them while working really hard, when my other goggles would always fog - and these haven't fogged on me yet! They are very reliable, which makes them VERY enjoyable! I love 'em!
Don't buy into the women's specific deal..
I bought these online without ever trying them on cause they just look so sick, but when I got them they were way too small for my face. I have really high cheekbones so the foam didn't always fit right on my nose. I dealt with them until I got a pair that actually fit me. Other than that they are awesome goggles with really good clarity and they never fogged. I got them with the ignitor lens, which they claim is their all around lens. I still found it to be a little light for really sunny days. TRY THEM on BEFORE BUYING, if you can!
The girlfriend and her goggles.
Rideable, but not totally worthy..
Stylish and semi-functional.
This is my first pair of Smith goggles. I always always ridden Anon Figments (and I am going back). I loved the appeal, super sleek and feminine. It's nice to cover up your face with something that won't necessarily block your pretty looks. I got the Fuchsia/Orange with the Gradient/Red Mirror lens. So this is the good: The lens is awesome, I get compliments all of the time on how amazing they look, that's it! The bad: The fit of the goggles themselves.. no bueno! Unless you have a small face, or your eyes are super close to your nose, you get no peripheral vision, the strap is SUPER thin they don't really cover your ears over your beanie if you rock ear buds. I have a lot of issues with the straps.. The cheap plastic "fast clip" in the back comes undone easily! I have already lost my goggles off of the chair a few times (luckily I think I have good karma and got them back!), this clip also interferes if you wear a helmet, it is right where you latch your goggles to the back of your helmet (also, they look REALLY small on your face once you put a helmet on, it's funny!). The straps also are not easy to loosen and tighten and they will come out of the plastic. All in all, these are CUTE goggles, the lenses are awesome (okay in low light situations, great in sun), really though.. I can't see anything but what's directly in front of me and I can't stand the straps, they are worthless.
there okay but theres better for cheaper
they fog easier than my cheap spy's on the lift but otherwise when you riding, no fog. if your a gaper. dont buy these xD

A lot of goggles I've seen recently are much thicker coming forward off the face than the older style (I assume to better fit with helmets). I am one of those losers who does not wear a helmet, so I look like a bug with those thick goggles. Are these the type that will make me look like a bug or can I continue being a loser in style?
no bug man haha. but you should spend your money on a helmet. trust me its worth it before its too late.
These goggles are pretty nice, more for small faces however. These goggles do not offer the best peripheral vision around. If your looking for more peripheral go with the phenom. All in all these are pretty good goggles, well built with great lenses.
These goggles are great. They fit my face and helmet well. In addition, the lens don't fog up and they are perfect for sunny days and cloudy days. =]
Got these goggles for Christmas. Had a few chances to use them, pretty much exclusively on snowy days. The Sensor Mirror lenses work pretty good for the flat light, but are by no means a miracle lens. I would say my face is a medium size and these are a little small, but work well enough to keep.
