I was a long-time user of the I/OX and must say that the I/07 is a little better fit for a medium-sized face. Don't get me wrong, I dug the I/OX, but at times it's seemed a little bit larger than necessary. The lens changes are as easy as ever, and I usually carry an extra one in my hip pocket for days when the light is in or out or I take a particularly viscous tomahawk. In short, if you're looking for a reliable, easy-to-use medium fit goggle, look no further than the I/07
I skied in this jacket all of last year and attest to its durability. The re-inforced fuse form sections of the jacket give a little extra protection from common wear and tear spots, which gives the jacket a little extra life. The FuseForm sections are integrated into the jacket itself, so it doesn't look excessively bulky/over-engineered. The hood is also integrated to wear comfortably with a helmet and ski, not just hunker down. While many jackets claim to have hoods designed for use with a helmet, this jacket allows you to shred without feeling like you have limited neck movement. And, obviously, it has the bomber construction and warmth of TNF.
I was initially drawn to this pack by its no-nonsense, straightforward design. It has everything you need from a pack without the extra bells and whistles that a lot of the time end up being just extra weight. I've used this extensively this spring for ski mountaineering missions as well. While I don't think it's specifically intended for this use, it does the trick, particularly for missions where you're bringing rope and a modest amount of pro. There's no diagonal carry, but the a-frame works just fine. It's the best pack I've come across for its weight.
