        Overall

        A great goggle for everyday use, especially if you’ve got an all-black theme going on! Highly recommended, and if you have any problems, Smith's customer service is legendary, so you can buy without worrying about a defect ruining your day.

        Performance

        If you’re familiar with the I/O lens exchange system, then it’s easy to swap lenses, and if not, it’s relatively easy to get the hang of and do on-the-fly. The lenses refuse to fog while skiing, but I did manage to get some moisture in between the lenses on my fog-lens. It was the result of wearing my goggles out of the lodge on a cold day, going from hot to cold very quickly. After a chairlift ride in my jacket, the moisture had evaporated and the problem ceased.

        Design

        The frameless look is great, and provides a wide field of view that will have you spying trannies you never saw before; however, it can make it tough to keep your lenses clean if you’re swapping them often.

        Value

        The I/Ox retails for $190 USD, which is on par with any other top of the line goggles. They come with great low-light and sunlight lenses. Top of the line performance is worth the money.

        Fit

        You probably already know about these goggles because they’re pretty much the ultimate statement of badassery that one can have on the ski hill. All black errything, from the straps to the lens pivots to the lenses themselves, these won’t soon be forgotten. I've been looking for a sweet all-black goggle for a few years and finally found it.

        The I/Ox comes in a multitude of color options to fit your style, but black is hard to beat.

        Durability

        Aside from one lens fog incident (mentioned above) I never had a problem. If you're careful you shouldn't have any problems. I dropped them a few time and they didn't scratch, but I always held my breath because you never know with lenses. No problems thus far though!
