        Overall

        I really like these things. I think they are a sick looking and performing goggle. One major selling point is the colors, you can get a lot of different combinations, the one I found was a big selling point for me, but the bottom line is these are nice.

        Performance

        They dont fog. the lining that touches the face actually does seem to wick moisture away pretty well, but if you let them slide around a lot they can start to itch a bit. They stay in place well, and the field of view is good. What more needs to be said?


        Design

        Very helmet compatible. The strap has a sticky like strip which helps keep the goggles in place both on your head or your helmet. The ability of the part of the frame where the strap connects to hinge is amusing, but its not something you will notice or find a need for on a day to day basis. Easily adjustable strap, buckles fit well under the goggle strap of a helmet.

        Value

        I got em for free, but I would have paid for them in a heartbeat. They look as sick as any goggle out there, and you are more likely to find a color scheme you like, yet they are available as cheap or cheaper than other goggles. I'd say a pretty good buy, especially if your hooked on a specific color or lens.

        Fit

        Obviously this will vary a lot from person to person, so not much need be said here, but here ya go.

        I've worn these both over a hat, and with my G10 MX. They fit great both ways. They are really comfy on your face, especially around the nose, which is not something one would notice if it weren't very true. Even without being very tight they form a nice seal around my face.

        Durability

        Haven't really beat them around yet, but they seem to be solidly constructed so I'd say pretty good, besides, you never see threads called "My Soldiers Fell Apart"

        Overall

        The best goggle I've used and also not the most expensive. Good for people with bigger faces or helmet wearers.

        Performance

        The lenses are great. At first I was wary that they would be too dark but they've been great in all light conditions. The ventilation works really well and they don't get foggy. Although... for some reason the top right corner gets a little foggy sometimes, I don't know why. The sticky rubber on the inside of the strap was a great addition to keep them in place.

        Design

        I love the way it looks and the newer ones with patterns are great. I like the squared edges, it makes it look better with helmets.

        Value

        Pretty good, seeing as how I've paid more for goggles I didn't like as much. However, you have to remember that most "cool" goggle companies are overpriced, especially mirror lenses. No goggle should ever be $100. But, since these have been out for a while, you can find them cheap on the internet. I snagged mine for $30 from an outlet store.

        Fit

        Of all the goggles I've owned, these fit the best. They are wider than my Oakley goggles and that makes them more comfortable and helps my peripheral vision. Also, they fit helmets very well because the strap gets very big and the shape is rather square. This ensures that they fit snugly into the shape of the helmet and don't leave any gaper gap.

        Durability

        Despite a lot of abuse, the lenses and frames are perfect. Even the strap is in good shape and never stretched out.

        Overall

        Overall, these are probably the best all around goggles, they fit good, they perform good, super durable and look good.

        Performance

        Goggles work really good. Vents work good and the lense is really nice.

        Design

        I love the shape of the goggle and the little sticky part on the strap, helps it stay on your hat/helmet better, almost like a non-slip grip.

        Value

        Pretty expensive but not too bad. I say they could lower the price just a tad.

        Fit

        Goggles fit great. These goggles will basically fit any face, any shape or size. Also go really good with most helemts (Looks super clean on a Giro Nine.9)

        Durability

        Goggles have held up great, not one scratch on my lenses!
