        Overall

        I tested the 2012-2013 Salomon XTend Goggles (Pictured is the XPRO12 ML Orange/Solar). Other than the fact that changing lenses can be a little difficult and requires you to put your hands all over the lens, this is an excellent goggle. If you have the chance to try them on at a shop near you, go for it!

        Performance

        Used them several times in ~20F and colder conditions and they didn't fog up once.

        Value

        Definitely a reasonably priced goggle, well worth the money.

        Fit

        Really liked the fit of these goggles. Although the foam is only double layered, they were very comfortable and no wind was able to enter through the sides. Peripheral vision is excellent.

        Durability

        Held up great so far, the only thing that worries me is the points where you clip the lens into the frame. The pin (pictured) that you remove when changing lenses seems pretty fragile, and very easy to loose if you were to accidentally drop it. I'm assuming they chose to make the pin rather than switch locks because of copyright issues. (IO, Airbrake, etc)
