Lockoutbryce I got my clk's beginning of last season. Compared to other goggles in the same price range, i got 3 lenses(1 being polarized) and a very nice case to store lenses in. Other companies offered 2 lenses and no case. Ive had 50+ uses out of them. Not a single fogging issue. They fit great w/ my bern Watts helmet.
My only complaint is the polarized lenses don't go in and out very easily. The other 2 go in and out like butter. And i was worried i would scratch the lenses w/ the way the case holds lenses. But only scratches i have are from branches.

cav0011 yeah, the reason i got the snow goggles is that i used thier paintball products for years and never had issues and loved the clarity.
So far with my one day out this year the snow goggles dont disappoint.

krankedmusic I have actually used my dye paintballing googles on the hill before. Like them much better, could see a lot more then my I/Os

Maierapril Would not be surprised to see if Empire/JT jumps into the fold to make a winter goggle if Dye does well.

Definitely will pick one of these up at the end of the season though.

huckit Okay, that's what I figured. I agree, the T1's system for changing the lense isn't that great, but I was able to do it in just a couple minutes without any trouble. That was at room tempature, I'm not sure if it would be harder when it's colder... The lenses mine came with were the polorized smoke silver and the clear/sunrise I believe. From all the things I've been reading on this forum about polorized lenses, I'm not sure if I'll like 'em. I guess I'll find out!

cav0011 yes, the CLK has a wider field but it isnt a ton wider. I tried on T1's and liked the fit but i like the fit of the CLK more for my face. I think the T1's lense changing is a disappointment, I assumed they would change out similarly to the I/O's because of the tabs on the frame but they are very much like a traditional lense changing system.

However most people dont swap out lenses throughout the day so it is kind of a non-issue. I am anal retentive and get annoyed if i dont have the right lense in for the conditions.

The buttons on the frame were stiff when I first messed with it but after playing around with it a few times the ease of clicking out the frame started to kick in.

The hard case is nice (i like it better then the APX one) It comes with a sleeve inside of it that you slide extra lenses in, it does seem to be a little small for the size of the goggles so at times you have to fiddle with them in order to get it to fit into the case without squishing things.

Overall I am very happy with them I just thought i would take a little bit of time to clarify some things people might ask.

Did you have a chance to try on the T1's? They seem to be very similar; the T1 would be a little harder to change the lense... I just got the T1, and so far I like them. Unfortunately, they only came with a soft case, and there isn't an extra pocket for the second lense. I got these goggles for a steal ($80) so I'm not complaining! I'm just wondering if you knew if there was a difference in the range of vision.
