Liftee Stamp of Approval! +update
on December 8, 2014
So far these are the best pair of goggles I've ever owned! I'm a liftee at Park City Mountain Resort so I wear my goggles all week long. Haven't had them fog up up on me, they look awesome, and they're super comfortable. Still need to try switching the lenses but i figure it shouldn't be too much of a challenge. Will update later in the season if any issues arise.
UPDATE: The I/OX is a difference maker...
It's the end of a long season and Smith did well. I only had one fog up issue and it's because I was wearing my I/OX's with a balaclava and a fur ukshana in -34 degrees fahrenheit (kind of expected). The Green Sol-X lenses are perfect for most of the time. When it's DUMPING snow or your skiing down in the twilight at the very end of the day, you're going to be happy to have the Red Sensor lens. Trust me- switching the lenses is not as hard as some people make it out to be. Like most things it just takes some time to get used to it. (If you ever see a small gap by the nose piece with light/ air coming through, all you have to do is take your glove off and fiddle with the nose piece until you hear it click into place and the gap will disappear!). From the picture you can see that these goggles have been abused and the green lenses are pretty scratched up. The one really big scratch is from getting hit in the face by a fixed grip chair. The rest are a combination of carelessly taking off my helmet in the shack and aggressive tree skiing. This is what they'll look like if you beat the hell out of them 5 days a week for an entire season. All in all I still give these goggles top marks and will probably just get some new lenses for the days I'm not working next season. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who's on the mountain a lot.
