        I love these goggles. To start off, I needed a pair of goggles that were OTG(over the glasses), and this goggle was my pick.

        Lens Changing:
        Lens changing is pretty simple and fast after you figure it out. The first time I was kind of stuck when trying to remove the nose slot but got it pretty fast. Now I can swap between my Green SolX and my blue ignitor on the hill when conditions permit.

        Lens Durability:
        These lenses seem to hold up pretty well. I have a scratch on my ignitor, but I think that happened when these goggles saved my face from a rock faceplant on a pow day haha. My Sol X has been holding up awesome for such a shiny lens. It's been whacked by trees and branches and still has no scratches. I'm impressed.

        Fogging:
        I, simply put, cannot fog them at all. My glasses will fog from time to time but whatever they did with the Porex filter thing and the hydrophobic lens, it's working. I would be quite impressed if you are able to fog them.

        Comfort:
        Great, not many problems. This goggle is for people with a large faces. I have a medium face so the gogs press my glasses into my nose, but they don't make an IO that's OTG compatible. Plus these look badass.

        Design/Style:
        I get compliments on these goggles about every day I go up. Quoting BlisterGearReview, you really actually do look like a badass powder slaying robot wearing the Green Sol Xs.

        Overall:
        Great goggles, a bit high on the price side but grab them if you can. They don't fog and look amazing. For large faces, but a medium can totally pull it off(and look better, IMO. OTG Compatible. Good lens swapping ability.
