Their quick release is simpler than what anyone else has on the market. 2 lenses with each pair the average price being in the 150ish range which means I/O, APX, Crowbar, Eg2 etc. etc. The guys running it are the old UT/CO Rome Reps it's Joel and D.I. I have some coming my way I think and I'll get a review. For a first year goggle company it's solid I trust it. They're sponsoring Tailgate Alaska and I think almost all my BC friends are using them now and have said they haven't fogged yet.

I wish they used the CLK tech on the T1. I need a medium fit, not oversized.

If they are anything like the lenses on dye's i4's, you shouldnt have any problems with these. I havent had a single pair fog on me. We put those masks through some tough crap.

Did fog through this, when other brands did.

Also warranty processes with Dye are quick and painless. Especially for people who live in the States. Even In Canada they really do make a quick turn around.

To think they started out making their stuff in a garage. Dave Youngblood has you covered.

Yeah i agree. ive played many many games in the rain/mud/snow wearing my i4s and never had a fogging issue. The antifog they use is tough stuff since it has to take paintball hits, and all the oil and towling off/cleaning that paintballers do to their lens.

$220 for a pair of goggles? Never.

i agree. i will be buying some of the $150 ones though, then probably a second lens somewhere down the line. I was gonna get them with my tax return but most of that was taken to pay off debt

Also for a principle...what kind of lenses are worth that kind of money? We are really loosing touch with reality with some items...like the GPS goggles or the $1500 snowboard...or those horrible golden plated bindings I saw somewhere. It's just vulgar. IMO. Then of course it's all a matter of proportion, and how much $200 is worth to you.
