jello24 i recently got my I/O goggs and they kick my old Prodigy's ass in terms of style and usabilty hands down. I can finally use clear lenses when the sun goes down!

+1 for I/O's... though i've never used phenoms however.

crazyface I had a pair of Phenoms and I/Os. I honestly preferred the Phenoms because they had less foam, especialy around the nose. They're both great goggles, but if there was lowlight, I used my Phenoms even though I had a lowlight lens for my Phenoms. I sold the Phenoms to a friend, though, because you just can't beat having two lenses for different conditions for the I/Os.

Csanto23 How do the I/O goggles fit? I have the Anon Solace goggles now (I know they are a female model, but I was into the small frames)

I know smith has the I/Os too.

DC5R I'm with Tarzanman. I've owned both and stuck with the phenoms because they didn't fog up as much as the I/Os. Both were great goggles, great fit and field of vision and easy to change lenses. You can't go wrong with either.

Tarzanman I own both of these goggles. They both work ok for me. The I/O's probably fog up a little bit more easily due to the open, frameless design. I use the I/O as my main and the phenoms as my back-up

NWBoarder My friend has the Phenoms and they are super nice and the lens is easy to change. That being said, I want to I/O's. They just look so super sweeet to me.

Magnum626 I have the I/O and I love em. Comes with spare lenses and really easy to change out. No fogging issues as most 'new' goggles shouldn't anyway. I never tried the phenoms though but I love the field of vision I have with the I/O.

Qball Currently have multiple pairs of phenoms, I have no idea how I ended up with so many, but they are great. Next goggles I buy will probably be I/Os though

linvillegorge I have the Phenoms and I'm a heat factory. I rarely have fogging issues.

I LOVE the I/Os though! Definitely my next goggles.

love them. Great vision and no fogging issues for me ever!
