I use them with a Red Mutiny and they seem fine... Just take them to the store with you and try on some helmets

I/Os fit fine with my Smith Maze helmet. So did Phenoms.

I reside in Birmingham, AL so there are limited store options unfortunately...

I know all the Smith Helmets will work quite well, I just went ahead and bought a Vantage and a Voyage for my girl friend. She needs goggles though, any suggestion minus buying another pair of the I/Os?

She should really try a bunch on herself to make sure that they fit properly without huge gaps (people have different face contours).

If you want to stay with smith, then the Phenoms or Virtues are worth a look.

If I were to buy two different goggles than the two that I already have (I/O, Phenom) then I would probably get some Oakley Splice and Anon Hawkeye.

Do you ever make it up to Atlanta ? Believe it or not, we have a pretty decent snow gear selection.

I only go to Atlanta about two or three times a year. I will keep that in mind next time I am in town. Is it much more pricey then online?

I realize she should be trying them on, but she is on her way to Florida until right about Christmas, so there is not much time. She had been putting it off and now I am just 'gifting' her the items.

Thanks for the recommendations though, I appreciate it!

I attached a close up of my I/O with a Red Theory helmet. I think you'll be fine regardless of what helmet you get, but you need to keep in mind that if it's not a smith you may need the helmet helper since the I/O and I/OS straps can be short. I can take a picture of what my goggles look like with that strap if you want to see it.
