smith i/o problem

I got some smith i/o goggles the problem is i cant keep them from fogging or getting a ton of condensate on the inside of the lens. and the other lens gets a haze to it that cant be wiped away. I emailed smith to ask if it was something wrong with the lenses or what it might be and all i got back was a copy and paste of there warranty page. there is like a black rubber ring inside the lenses is it a seal? because it doesn't match up with the frames. these things cost a ton but i cant use them i keep using my crappy anon helix goggles that i got from tj max for 12 bucks because i can actually see with them. is it the goggles? Is it a warranty issue? i am thinking im gonna have to sell them and get a goggle with frames rather then these frameless goggles.

This post makes me think you don't have the lens properly snapped into place..... If you don't snap the lens on properly or get it clicked and squished into all of the rubber seals, it will do exactly what you're describing.

You're either going to have to speak better English and post a better description of what you're observing with your lenses, or post a photo of the goggles and lenses.

Based on your description, I would have done the same thing Smith did. Basically give you the option to warranty them.

I have the IO goggles and the lenses are not sealed. I have never gotten fog between the lenses, but they will fog up inside just like all other goggles do.
