I would buy a quality pair. I run my bike stuff which is 100% racecrafts. These are not the winter goggles, my regular summer goggles and I just use the winter double pained lenses in them, carry a few with me. No fogging ever.

How the goggles fit in the helmet is more important than brand. If they don't seat to you face you will have fogging issues. Go to a store and take your helmet with you. I have/had several pair of 509, oakly, spy, and Smith. 509 rank at the bottom for quality.

This, I know you asked what brand I use but that is irrelevant. The ones that fit your face and helmet the best will not fog.

Word the best goggles I had were my single pain Smith warp stars. They wore out after 15 years. That blue tint worked well for me in any lighting and at night.

Are you willing to sell the goggles separate?

So I went 509 Altitude with 509 Sinister X5's and was not a fan. At high speed it always felt like the helmet was getting ripped off my head due to that damn visor. Also when stopped is when my goggles would fog up, not to mention could not talk to anyone clearly with it all on.
So I went with the CKX Tranz RSV modular w/ heated shield and I love it! Not real heavy and has a pull down tinted lens built in.

I've always worn a mx style helmet. Do not stop without taking off your goggles, not for 5 minutes not for 1 minute, they will fog. Wait until you and your group are ready to go before putting them on.
A helmet or balaclava with a breath deflector will also help.

Right now I am running 509 Sinister X5's and Tripple 9 Saints. Both perform really well. I find if your strap or quickstraps are too loose you can have problems. I also feel a breath deflector is important to keeping the googles fog free.
