I have Missions and Cartels and the Missions do feel a bit softer. My Cartels have Autocant and the Missions don't, also the straps on the Cartels are a bit more comfortable.

I've been happy with Electric and Von Zipper for years. I got the Smith IOX last week and have been disappointed, they fog easily and the strap is already starting to fray in a couple of places.

Whatever Smith helmet you choose, be sure to try it on. I've found their sizing to be inconsistent between different models. I have a large head and the fit of the Holt and Variant work best for me.

Depending on how old that board and bindings are and how the boots fit you that might not be a great deal. Do plenty of research before you part with your cash.

The back of the Flow binding drops down to allow you to insert your boot without unbuckling the straps.

A couple of coats of spray paint and you'll have black lenses and you can't see through them. :)

Seriously, any of the major brands have a dark lens available. Go to a shop and check out a few.
