I've had these now for a few seasons, and still love them every day I take them out. The goggles have a sleek look, and the lenses are great- yet again, Smith doesn't let us down! I have a pretty small face, so these fit nice. They are pretty small though, so keep that in mind! Other than that, I love these things, taken them out for days on end, and they haven't let me down!

I have gone through countless goggles in the past 8 seasons I have been riding. They truly have the most premium goggle without the premium price tag. Oakleys splice goggles that are attempting to be faster that have been released 2011/2012 are 220.... Smiths goggles for 2 lenses, precise fit, premium comfort, and optimum vision are 164. You can get a comparable Electric goggle for 150 but only recieve one lens. I'll spend 14 extra bucks for a lifetime warrenty any day. Smith is local to Utah so if anything under warrenty happens to your goggles it takes just a matter of days to resolve your problem and get them back. The clip is SO nice and makes for easier faster adjusting. Silicone-backed strap is great so your strap doesnt slide around on your helmet or beanie. Silicone beading inbetween your double lens makes for a longer lifetime of your lens and actually WORKS with the porex filter. One thing I do HIGHLY suggest is to allow your porex filter to breath after a day filled with moisture to ensure your lens is ready to rock and roll the next day so no moisture gets trapped inbetween the double lens(let it hang outside of its bag in a safe place). Also SO nice to know that they impregnate their fog coating inside the inner lens so you dont have to worry about wiping the fog coating off(still a thinner more sensitive lense, treat with care). Sensor mirror is fantastic night boarding/skiing. These lenses are like veiwing the world in HD. Genuinly awesome company.
it comes with a nice bag to hold your goggles in. and a seperate compartment for the extra lens. If you want a hard box for your goggles check out Smiths website they have them on there and they are real real nice :]

Love these gogs. For the dudes with small heads and the girlies out there, these fit awesome!! The foam doesn't poke you in the eye from being too narrow, yet they don't screw with your helmet from being too wide. Of course the lenses are so easy to change out it feels like I'm cheating. Only downside is that they can be a bit wide over the bridge of your nose if you don't have them snugged up.
The I/O is definately OTG or glasses compatable. I've tried the I/O on with my glasses just for kicks and giggles and they fit just fine. I would suggest going into a retail shop with your glasses and trying them on with the I/Os before you order the I/Os because it definately is a smaller fit than the I/O.

if it doesn't say OTG (over the glasses) the answer is no it's not good.
Even if it fits, your glasses will likely be contacting the edges of the goggles, and your glasses will likely fog up without the extra volume of OTG goggles.

I returned these but before I did Had a chance to give them a thorough check out. Less frame than i have ever seen on a goggle, It makes for a cool look, But THE I/OS is made for Smaller to Medium face, THE I/O is for Larger faces I made the assumption that the "S" in I/OS meant special or super, after trying on my Large face i am left to assume it stands for SMALLER. Bottom line great goggle for smaller faces if you need it larger get the Smith I/O
how big is the lens? is it as big or smaller then the electric EG2 ?

This is the I/Os, which is a slightly smaller version of the Smith I/O. The Electric EG2 is actually a little bit bigger than both versions of the I/O (moreso with the I/Os). Nice thing about the I/O goggs though, is that even with their size, they still fit awesome with a helmet, without pinching down on your nose. Swoop a pair!
