Does anyone know what the size of this goggle is compared to smith i/o and i/o x? I currently have i/os, which fit my face and helmet well but could have a better field of view. I just tried on some i/oxs and they were a little too big for my face and definitely too big for my smith maze helmet. The maze has a very small brim and the frame of the i/ox stuck out passed it, which looked ridiculous.

Are those of you who have experienced ripped seems predominantly skiers? I'm a snowboarder with oven mitts, and they've held up just fine. There are some nicks in the palm's leather, mostly on my right hand, but carrying a snowboard does that to every glove. I'm asking because I want to get a pair for my mom, who skis.

These were great right out of the box for the 1st 7-10. I'm a pretty agressive rider, so I like responsive and fairly stiff boots. I had driver x's but thought they were too stiff in any situation besides going mach 5. These were a great middle ground - stiff and responsive enough for charging, but with enough feel for freestyle and cruising.
However, after 7-10 days i started to get borderline crippling pain along my back foot achilles tendon and had to return them. Thought it was very weird that they became uncomfortable around the time most boots break in and become comfortable. Still can't give them a horrible rating because they were so good at 1st and others might not experience the same problem.

These were very comfortable out of the box, but they were too soft for me as a fairly agressive all mtn rider. I guess I should have known better as that's not what they're billed for, but even so they were really soft. There was no stiffness putting pressure on the toe edge, it felt like the things almost folded in half even when tied pretty tight. I guess if you only rails and smaller park features/don't like making real turns they would be good.

I have a different color than pictured here, but they look great. Good summer shoe, as you can wear them comfortably without socks, although they can get a little dank when it's hot - problem is erased with thin socks. They are on the narrow side, so if you have a wide forefoot like me you may feel a little cramped, but once they break in a little they feel fine. A little space is showing between the wrap and sole in some small places, but that's probably because I've gone hiking and cleared storm drains with them, which is definitely not what they're designed for, and some little pebbles got wedged between. Since I haven't seen any growing space though.

Agree wholeheartedly with Pat.It's warm and has less sag than the normal Frena, but still fully covers the ears - must have requirement for me. As someone who wears a beanie under his helmet, this is great because there's no extra bulk to ruin the fit under the helmet.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great dexterity, very comfortable, durable and pretty warm. They're a pretty thin glove, so obviously not for single digits, but they have a comfy thin fleece lining and i used them with some thin burton glove liners and was warm down to about 15 F. I had my hands in the snow a lot and they never got wet using the provided waterproofing wax.

I haven't done any real backcountry since getting then, but some sidecountry hiking, and I would say they would well in that situation. For me, unless it's really cold (single digits) my hands usually only get cold on the lift and generally when I'm not moving (my hands get pretty sweaty hiking in thicker gloves) so these are great when you need the dexterity in BC for switching from ascent to decent but it's cold enough that you don't want to take your gloves off.

For those complaining about the grayeen color, it's your fault for buying something labeled as grayeen in the first place.

I just found my bro's old skate banana and want to make it into a dedicated jib deck, but I need some relatively cheap jib oriented bindings (160 and under at dogfunk's current sale prices). So far I'm thinking these, union contacts, and flux rk30s. What should I get? I'm open to other suggestions too.
