        Overall

        Overall, the best low light goggle I have used. I have a pair of just about every top end goggle and love most of them, this is still the best low light I have found. Maybe except for a pair of PBR goggles Scott put out quite a while ago. They had a light blue lens and were taken from mt. baker employee housing in 2002. (you know who you are, I hope you are enjoying them as much as I did)

        Performance

        the lens that comes with the blue goggle (fire coral i think) is the best low light goggle I have used. 69% VLT (visible light transmission) is great for defining snow conditions in low light/tree runs.  Too bright for sunny days in my opinion. Unlike the picture from the poc website I used, the lens is actually red mirror from the outside, and blue color looking through.

        Design

        don't really like the blue color strap/frame, just not my style. I actually traded the lens into a green pair of poc iris bugs. (the green is still pretty loud) The lens from the outside looks kind of like any fire red style mirrored lens, i could care less as long as you can't see my eyes. Also it is a flat lens not curved like most high end goggles, personally I don't notice any distortion. I do hope poc comes out with a happy medium between the iris and the lobe.

        Value

        free from the rep, always a good deal. Poc is pretty pricey with most of their products, I think the goggle usually goes for $100 usd which is spendy for a flat lens goggle. For low light it is worth it.

        Fit

        Iris bug only comes in one size.  Fit is great for my face shape  (kind of wide). Good with a helmet when I wear one. Good without helmet. Face foam comfy.

        Durability

        good so far, I am sure it can scratch as easily as anything else. (Have hit a few branches and such through tree runs, no scratches yet)
