3.) The goggles do not fog up.
4.) Get it in the right color, and you'd actually look like a bad-ass!
This I would condone, cause it does not inhibit your vision of the front tip of the board. I'm sure lateral peripherals are fine, but its the downward peripheral vision that would be sacrificed with the other "MTB type" designs.
