I only have experience with Smith I/O and I/Os and I/Ox. The I/Ox have not fogged on me once.

I did tons of research before I bought, and have never needed to sway from Smith.

Their CS is great. My wife and I have their Goggles, helmets, BT audio for helmets, sunglasses and whatever else I'm not remembering.

I have tried and own Oakleys, EGs, Von Zippers, and Smiths. Like everything else equipment wise, it's a personal thing.

I do like the oversize goggles for their wide field of vision. For me, Von Zipper Fishbowls feels most comfortable. That's the goggle I use the most. I still have EG2s but I don't use them at all since I bought the VZs. Personally out of the all the oversize goggles EGs do look the steeziest though.

Since I usually always have my goggles on , comfort is the most important factor for me.

Smith iox here, quick change lenses are super convienent. Fit perfect over glasses, fit over or under helmet(i use mine under), awsome field of view(hardly see any frame and super comfy. Tho i would say if you do wear glasses either invest in some good antifog for your glasses or get the iox turbofan.

No not yet :( now that its getting warmer outside im going back and forth with my racecar and snowboarding, its never ending lol. Bought a few parts i needed for the car this week so next week is snowboard week :yahoo:, ill order the board and mc's at the same time....maybe even new boots if i have enough overtime money. We really might need help.....but for now ill just buy more stuff haha.

Edit: only one board was left in stock on backcountry/ of course i had to buy it. Be here on wensday, ill have to make a trip up north to try it out.

Another vote for Smith I/OX.

I have a pair of oakley splice that I like a lot, but it has less vision than EG2's and others.

You can find some reasonably prices oakleys on amazon for <$50, some with iridium lenses, check em' out.

I love my I/OXs. Never had them fog on me and super easy to change lenses.
