|fish4it38||Thanks for the help. I think I'm going to go with the Smith I/O.|

You don't even have to wait that long.

|krankedmusic||I would get the I/O they are really nice. The day and night time lens really do help. Just don't do what I did and buy the I/Os by accident.|

I have a pair of Kscopes and like them, I use them at night/flat light. They're inexpensive, don't fog up, and come with an extra yellow lens. The frames are nice and soft too.
I heard smith IOs are dope....and sheep seems to reinforce that.
I say, try them both on (if you can) and see which one works for you. If all things are pretty even but cost is a factor, get the Ashburys. Pretty good value.
If you'd take another suggestion, I'd like to also recommend Airblaster Airgoggles. They're my favorites. They don't fog no matter what stupid stuff I do with my goggles, they're comfy, SUPER durable (I treat goggles like shit) and are also inexpensive. The Baker lenses also don't lose their mirroring, if that's something you care about.

You're going to pay more for the I/Os (unless you really shop around, there might be cheaper sets on ebay).
I have a pair of I/Os and I love them. Easy to change out the lenses, Smith has TONS of lens and frame options so you can mix and match, if that's your thing. Plus, the I/Os just look SWEET. Functional and good looking. If you buy retail, you get a lens for all-around conditions/sunny days and a lens for flat-light.
I don't know anything about the Kaleidescopes but they seem like a solid middle-of-the-road goggle.
Smith I/Os are really popular, and for good reason. I could be wrong but I think they were one of the first really successful models to incorporate a lens swapping system. You'll see a lotta skiers and riders wearing these.

I have been using the same Von Zipper goggles for the past five years and I think it's time for something new. I have two different ones that I can't decide between; Ashbury Kaliedoscope and Smith I/O. Can someone give me there insight on the two and which they recommend I get?
