The only down side i have found to the I/Os is at least for me and the way my face is shaped, when i get hit with a cross wind the smiths do allow a little more air in through the goggle. Its not to the point of being a problem but it is noticeable

anyone tried the Dye goggles yet? I come from a paintball background where dye makes some of the best lenses in the game so I was rather excited to hear they were taking a stab at snow goggles. They seem expensive (which, truth be told is par for the course for Dye) but if they have taken what they have learned in paintball and applied it to snow goggles they should be a good pair of lenses
Yeah, I just picked up a pair of T1's made by Dye. So far, AWESOME. Have I used them on the snow yet? Sadly, no, because there isn't any snow up here yet. Also, from what I'm reading, polorized lenses may not be the way to go... they came with two sets: polorized and not.

Brian- ebay is a great place to buy goggles. I picked up my T1's for pretty cheap. But, my splice's I got from a local shop. If the price isn't to much different, support your local shops when possible!
