Not helmet compatible

Used the Wisdoms occassionally during the 08-09 season. Notice the design where the strap connects to the goggle. This plastic connector is not truly compatible with many helmets (mine is a Giro G10 MX), resulting in the dreaded gaper gap. Same problem experienced by numerous friends trying out the same model goggle with various helmets. Unforgivable design flaw in my opinion, thus the 2 star. I'd consider them adequate (3*) for helmetless riders. Nothing special - I'd never pay msrp for these. Mine are black irridium lens. They appeared mirrored in the backcountry.com photo but when I recieved them they looked see-through. When you put them on though, they do look mirrored. That is, your eyes cannot be seen.
