I have the Phenoms and I'm a heat factory. I rarely have fogging issues.

I LOVE the I/Os though! Definitely my next goggles.

Currently have multiple pairs of phenoms, I have no idea how I ended up with so many, but they are great. Next goggles I buy will probably be I/Os though

I have the I/O and I love em. Comes with spare lenses and really easy to change out. No fogging issues as most 'new' goggles shouldn't anyway. I never tried the phenoms though but I love the field of vision I have with the I/O.

My friend has the Phenoms and they are super nice and the lens is easy to change. That being said, I want to I/O's. They just look so super sweeet to me.
Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I own both of these goggles. They both work ok for me. The I/O's probably fog up a little bit more easily due to the open, frameless design. I use the I/O as my main and the phenoms as my back-up

I'm with Tarzanman. I've owned both and stuck with the phenoms because they didn't fog up as much as the I/Os. Both were great goggles, great fit and field of vision and easy to change lenses. You can't go wrong with either.

How do the I/O goggles fit? I have the Anon Solace goggles now (I know they are a female model, but I was into the small frames)

I know smith has the I/Os too.
