Smith I/O Interchangeable Optics Spherical Series Goggles 2011 Review

I love the I/O goggle, the evolve edition is made from mostly recycled plastic, and the super quick interchangeable lens option is sick. I can change a lens in seconds, on the lift, at the top of a line, where ever; it's fast and sweet. They have great peripheral vision, and fit perfectly with smith helmets. With the updated face foam they fit better when worn with a hat to.

The I/O is my favorite goggle of all time. The ability to quickly and easily change out the lens makes my life easy after I take a huge tomahawk. This way I never have to waste room in my pack with an extra set of goggles, just an extra lens is all I ever need. There even better on the on the resort when I don't have a pack cause I just throw a lens in my pocket and I can change it out on the chair.

I choose the I/O because I like the way it looks and it comes with great lens options. The lens' are so easy to change that you can do it out in the field even when it's snowing. I use the sensor mirror when the light's flat and the ignitor mirror when it's not.
