I'm on my second pair of Fuses now, the first having lasted about four seasons before the face foam started disintegrating completely. I picked up another pair last year, and I've put 120+ days on them the last two seasons and still going strong. I'm out working whether its 30 below, 25 and bluebird, or 40 and raining, and these goggles haven't let me down. Fogging isn't a problem as long as you do what you're supposed to (don't stick them on your head when you're sweating, and once you're outside put them on and don't take them off ever), and fit is great over a hat or with the various Boeri and Giro helmets I've worn them with (big nose, big head, medium-size face otherwise). I wear these goggles every day, swapping between the Platinum Mirror lens for brighter conditions and the Sensor Mirror for boxed in or flat light, with clear lenses for night riding. Both the Platinum and Sensor lenses perform wonderfully, with enough overlap that I can put one in in the morning and be OK even if the conditions change during the day. The Sensor in particular really makes everything pop in flat light. All around, these goggles are a great purchase, especially if you find them at half price on steepandcheap or tramdock at the end of the season.

Ignitor or Platinum mirror lenses plus Sensor mirror would work well. The VLT in the ratings stands for Visible Light Transmission, or how much of the light around you the lens lets in. High numbers are good for dimmer days (more light means you can see more) and low numbers are good for bright days (less light means you don't blind yourself). I ride with either the Platinum or Sensor lenses in my Fuses pretty much all winter, and I'm a fan of both, although I'm thinking about replacing the Platinum with an Ignitor now that they're getting scratched. Either way, both the Platinum/Sensor and Ignitor/Sensor combinations should cover you on anything from bluebird to pea soup (if you do any real amount of night riding, pick up a clear lens from Smith too).
