        Overall

        In conclusion, I love these gogs for a) their style, b) their wide viewing angle, and c) the comfortable fit. The only complaint or drawback is the price. But, most goggles are headed in this direction now, and I was glad I spent the extra cash for these. Enjoy.

        Performance

        Performance is decent - perfect amount of air flow during fast skiing. Hiking is a problem though - be sure to keep them up on your helmet or around your neck if you're gonna be hiking, they seem to fog easier than my A-Frames, my only other goggles I can compare them to.

        Design

        Some pluses: Sticky rubber on the inside of the strap for helmets, super wide viewing-range (ie good for switch), nice mirror lenses.

        A quick warning, though, to those of you who are anal about your style: if you do own a helmet that is relatively thin in the forehead area, these gogs do have some thickness to them, so with my helmet they extend a little farther, if that makes sense. Doesn't bother me though, and doesn't affect performance.

        Value

        I purchased mine for $105, I feel like it's a bit much and that I payed more for the style and name-brand rather than some green plastic and a nice lense.

        Fit

        Made for a Medium to Large face, and they feel great. Triple density foam, blah blah.

        Durability

        Decent - no scratches on the lense yet, everything's held up so far, and the construction is solid enough to withstand a decent beating.
