Unanswered Question

I'm trying to figure out what the extra lens mine came with is for, I got the sensor mirror as the main lens, and the second lens doesn't seem significantly darker (or darker at all), sort of amber but with no reflective coating

Some things are corky, some things are unique, some things are stylish and some thing are just stupid

These are just stupid, you will never see a worse sight than you wearing these in the mirror, the fold up tight up not any more compact than the lowriders, and the sound is basically what you would expect, pretty awful...but that's %100 to be expected so I didn't knock any stars off for that. They are just so weird, which was also to be expected, but once you open them up and put them on it's on a whole new level of weird.

I bought these for 8 dollars (shipped) and still regret it, I'm puzzled by their very existence in this universe and am currently looking for someone to take them off my hands.

These are modeled of the Koss Portapro, at this price you might as well get the real thing since the portapro headphones are supposed to be very very very good sounding, and if you want something "stylish" then get the Skullcandy Lowriders, I hate the lowriders but finally found something I hate more...the pick ups

This jacket doesnt really have much technical performance, but for some reason i still wear it 4+ days a week in the nothwest. In my opinion is is quite fasionable, clean and simple, but a little annoying when you can start a club of Denali Wear-ers everywhere you go! Its very warm, and really comfortable because its soft fleece inside and out. I like the pockets and pit zips (not mesh lined), and its sooooo light too. The bad part is that its not windproof at all, after you've worn it for about a week the fabric stretches and just lets all air pass thru without a fight, and that makes the warmth of the fleece useless. In your normal size it is pretty roomy and too bulky to layer under a shell, but in a size down it will work ok as a layer, but be REALLY hot so high-output activites like snowboarding would not be a good idea with this as a layer. The nylon panels are very waterproof with the DWR and can easily withstand a light shower, but the rest gets wet and nasty and doesnt dry very quickly.

The optimal use ive found for this is just casual, with a sweatshirt under it most of the time...besides that its good for any cold weather environment that is not windy or rainy - which i cant really call an example to mind.

I gave it 4 stars because i really like the jacket as a casul piece, but its lacking performance.

I'm a guy, and picked up the 09/10 models for $80 from an undisclosed location to use on my park board...Ideally I would have bought pair of guys binding but they fit by boots and I couldn't pass up the deal.

That said, these are really comfortable. From a board feel/response perspective these were indistinguishable from my [men's] cartel ESTs....I wouldn't be able to tell the response of the two bindings apart if my life depended on it.

From a comfort perspective however they are worlds apart. Since I bought them my cartels have cut off my circulation after half a day and pinched the toe box on my boots. These solved both problems and for the first time ever I couldn't "feel" my bindings...I was just hooked to by board securely with no discomfort

I got the "Shoe Blue" colorway, and after a few weeks of basically no use, there's been some really severe discoloration of the soft touch rubber. I used these snowboarding for a half a day and then for a few hours casually hanging out at Starbucks. After those two uses most of the edges have been discolored to a nasty green color, they look absolutely terrible and the wear does not match the use at all. I haven't abused them at all, most of the times I've stored them they've been put back into the included soft bag! The only other place I've stored them naked is in my Dakine mission which has a grey interior which I don't think would rub the blue and make green.

Thanks to Backcountry's awesome return policy I get to recoup this bad purchase, had it not been for the discoloration I'd be totally happy keeping them because they're just fine for what they are, yes they are definitely not studio quality reference monitors, but you can't snowboard in those can you?

These goggles hands down solved all the problems I had with my previous pairs, I'll break it down

-EG2: Fogged almost instantly in all conditions except bright sun, couldn't wear a helmet or face mask as both made the fogging much worse
+Phenom: Never fogged on me all day, from a little rain in the morning, to getting pow blasted in my face while riding, to a break in the clouds, to hiking a little uphill and getting pretty heated while wearing my variant brim, to the blistering cold after the sun went down these didn't fog once!....and all in the same day!

-Mace: Really heavy and stuck out way far from the face
+Phenom: Totally light and have a low profile fit

-Fenom (VZ): bad selection of low light lenses
+Phenom (Smith): Sensor mirror is INCREDIBLE!!!! I've never seen a lens that can make the surface appear brighter and more natural looking in cloudy "blue" light, it's like shining a flashlight on the entire mountain, even at night I've never been able to see so clearly, much better than VZ's blue night lens

-A Frame: terrible pressure on the forehead and just tiny all-over
+Phenom: It's been a while since I had my A Frames but these are about the same size if I remember correctly, they provide a more even fix because the frame appears to distributes it's size horizontally instead of vertically, giving you more side to side vision and keeping pressure even and off the forehead

The only con I can think of for these is the lack of mirrored lenses, but other brands have those covered pretty well. If you want pure function then these have to be the way to go.

After riding in these two days I sold my EG2's and bought another pair with the Platinum mirror lens. I've been sold on Smith's optics, they don't mess around and really know what they're doing instead of just trying to look cool

First day riding with this I flipped over and off a rusty pipe jib, a few ligaments in my shoulder didn't make it out alive, but my $1200 camcorder in the nape/goggle pocket came out fine, not a scratch!!!

I'll update after a few more days of riding but so far it's comfortable, roomy and secure thanks to the straps. Great price too

Build quality out of the box is a bummer. I've had the SK Pros, Skullcrushers, Lowriders, Ti's, Icons 1 & 2 and they all felt more solid than these, these feel very hollow and cheap. How much that matters has yet to be seen and does do a good job of keeping weight down

These aren't very comfortable, but it's because they have a tight grip and holding power almost equal to the Icons, a huge advantage over the SK Pros and you wont have to put your goggle strap over these for them to stay put

Sound quality is as I expected; pretty bad, borderline terrible. Very non immersive and weak...but that's exactly what I expected (any WeSC headphone will do you better if you want good sound, the Oboe's rock)

High five to Skullcandy for the color ways this year, I'm glad that they opted for some solid colors instead of previously childish patterns, purely my opinion but I turned into a WeSC convert until these awesome styles came out


The colors are a little skewed because I was too lazy to set the white balance but the blue should blend pretty well with all your other blue stuff, companies don't seem to deviate very much when it comes to turquoise

Also they are pretty low profile as far as over ear's go. I'd like em to lay a little lower for boarding but what you gonna do



I'm pretty sure the stock photos are prototype mock-ups and not even photographs, and definitely not true to the product


Graphic on cans is extruded and much larger

Skullcandy lettering extruded on headband

Cheap small hinges instead of the burly ones in the stock photo, they are also navy colored

Velcro strap/bottle opener is on the other side

Can shape is in the traditional low profile GI shape instead of the conical TI shape that's in the stock photo

Cord is red and blue

Headband does not have glittery texture

The stock photo is basically the old Ti's with the new colors, check out Skullcandy's site for some more photos of the real headphones

Stock photos should die

Stock photo fail

I used my old Icons on and off the mountain, but these new ones are pretty uncomfortable unless you're wearing a beanie. I originally praised them quite a bit but looks like I will end up returning them because I can't use them without a beanie. Your milage may vary but if you have sensitive or oddly shaped ears you might want to stray away
