I already reviewed the cam a couple months after I got, and gave it top notches. However after two years and the explosion of options in the POV market, I'm a bit disappointed. Yes the VIO is rock solid and take multiple beatings, however because of the price and video quality I think there are better options. I do love the low profile of the lens compared to the GoPros "look at me slay this rail" size. Unless the price drops a couple hundred, and it has HD video I dont think I would recommended the VIO.
I love smith products and have rarely had problems with anything, however the Serpicos are below the norm of Smith quality. I'm on my second pair of these, and will soon be sending them back to Smith for warranty. The fit pretty good and look sweet however they fall apart. The metal on them is so pliable that regular use will bend the metal a bit. This results in the plastic lenses popping out of their frames. On both of my pairs this has happened, I think the metal is just too weak for a pair of sunglasses. I guess if these were only going to be used for driving, and stored in a hard case they might be fine. I would pass on the Serpicos for some other Smiths or some Ray Bans.
I love Smith for a variety of reasons, but I am not a big fan of the holt. It def fits well, and once protected my brain from a hard impact with a metal rail(that thing came out of nowhere). However unless I'm wearing a neck gaiter, I look like a giant dick. I mean a literal penis. So it doesn't exactly suite me well, but I'm guessing others may look less dick like with this on. I think I would enjoy the maze a bit more. It depends on how your head is shaped.
Ive owned three pairs of Fuses, and I have had zero issues. I love these goggles: the fit, the larger size, and the reliability. If you look around and check tramdock you can often find these in the 40 dollar range. For the price they are unbeatable.
Bought these on Tramdock, because I always wanted the fan option. Before I had these I always skied with two pairs of goggles, but now I'm a one goggle skier. I've noticed I rarely need the fan, because they vent so darn well. When they do start to get a little fogged hiking I turn on the fan, and boom there fog free. I think they vent better than other Smiths because the fan even when not on increases air flow. Very comfy, pretty durable. I did have a mishap after a hard landing where I noticed the little wire from the battery pack was a little pulled off. One other thing, when sitting in a backpack they occasionally turned themselves on. Overall another great product from Smith.
I've been using the pack for about a month or so now and have really grown to appreciate it. I first brought it to Mexico for a five day trip. I was able to fit everything I need in here and still carry it on. Since then I have used it for back country once, and resort skiing a couple times. I hate carrying this big of a pack skiing but for carrying my camera it works great. It's comfy to wear and super adjustable, and seems solid. My major grip is this though, DAKINES NEW CABLE SKI CARRY SYSTEM BLOWS. I have the same system on my other pack and its terrible. When you put fat skis in it pulls the entire top of the pack down because the cable system is attached to the top of the pack. Why Dakine? The old loop worked way better than this. Besides this the packs cool
