may i ask you what you didnt like on Oakley and what you do of I/O?
Yea, first thing was quality, right off the bat, Oakleys feel more cheaply made. I have a graveyard of old oakley goggles in my closet that ive had and friends had. they are my lend out pairs (for friends that I hate haha). the lenses scratch very easy, the plastic feels like a kids toy, they would constantly fog and to me the style of oakleys is retarded looking. looks like the mask from the game Halo. My Smith I/O on the other hand are super comfy, NEVER fog, they feel very sturdy the foam as someone else mentioned is still in near perfect condition 2 yrs later, switching the lens stupid fast, but what I like about them the most is the the peripheral vision that you get. its almost like you cant see the boarders of the goggles. vs other goggles that limit your vision. thats what originally sold me on these. The 2 lenses that they come with are good I like the darker lens best is a little too dark for night. and the pink'ish night lens gave me problems because like I mentioned before im partially color blind so clear lens works perfect for me for all conditions. cost something like $25.
You almost made me change my mind, and I am actually thinking of getting two lens instead of a versatile one.
So, if I go Oakley (easier to find where I live) which 2 lens you recommend to cover ALL conditions?
and if I find SMITH online, which two lens for this brand?
I have Swans that are made near me in a factory in Osaka.
The lens is light pink and polarized (similar to oakley pink iridium) and it may not be better than 2 lenses but its not far off IMO. Does a great job in low light and sunny conditions.
Its so changeable here it would just be a pain to change lenses. I could be switching every 20 mins some days.
Either way good goggles are important and worth it IMO.
Not a fan of carrying multiple lenses and switching during the day. Oakley vr50 pink iridium is perfect for a single all purpose lense. Oakleys are bitchen if you take care of them and the Splices are the most comfortable goggle around IMO.
