Well I guess the I/OS are'nt labeled asian fit, just small/medium fit, according to Smith's website. My bad! I could'nt sworn I heard someone tell me they were asian fit once.

I doubt you'll go wrong with either brand (Oakley or Smith's) higher end goggles... if thats what your wanting.

To the OP, did you end up getting some? And if so... which ones??

It's supposed to dump tonight and then snow tomorrow, so it should be a good day for goggle testing. Mine have the High Intensity Yellow lens which is supposed to be super good for cloudy/foggy/snowy days, which is 80% of the time here.

Ahh those HI Yellows are super nice for low light days.

You ride Schweitzer, right? How's it been lately? I'll be up there Thurs/Fri/Sat, hoping for some good snow! Forecast looks good!

It's been such a great early season, so much more snow then usual. The backside got kinda funky since the elevation is lower back there, the 3-day pineapple express a couple weeks ago kinda fucked it up, but with all this new snow it's going to be sick. It's going to keep on dumping through Thursday, Prepare to get some serious pow when you come up

I'm heading out in about 15 mins to go GET SUM.

Right on! Look for me on Thursday/Friday/Saturday and say hi if you see me. I'll be rocking Green AK pants and either my white NS SL or Ride Highlife.
