L9 Smith I/O Deal - Legitimate?
Hey guys,

Since I'm still getting acquainted with the various online retailers around, I was curious about the legitimacy of - I tried searching the forums and only found a few posts about them. The reason I ask is that they're running what appears to be an incredible deal on some 2014 Smith I/O goggles, although there are definitely some fuzzy details that make me wary.

First off, the deal only includes one lens ("despite what the box may say"), but they do offer an additional blackout lens for $10. The real red flag for me is that, in spite of being referred to as 2014 models, the red frame/black nosepiece with red strap does not appear anywhere on Smith's website for the current 2014 I/O lineup.

I spoke to a rep with L9 who said Smith overmanufactured frames without the additional lenses for this model, and that L9 was able to buy up stock at a really good price. To me, that still doesn't address why the supposedly 2014 model color doesn't appear on the Smith site. Thoughts? Links below for your reference.

I'll buy a pair. Buy through amazon, with a credit card (not debit unless you have protection). I really want black but this is a great deal.

Hmmm, here's another from their site. Supposedly 2014 I/OS goggles, no second lens, and again with a frame color that's not listed anywhere on Smith's site. Confusing.
