Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using the Smith Turbos for years. I don't know how many different types of crap I put on my goggle lenses to prevent or even reduce fogging, but nothing was ever good enough... until I found Smith Turbos.

The design has improved over the years and the initial issues have been resolved. The battery pack is minimal (holds one AAA battery), stays out of the way, and is sealed. The fan noise is almost imperceptible.

I've been out of the wettest and snowiest days and as long as I can keep my wipeouts from filling my goggles with snow, they stay fog free.

I wear sz9 street shoes, sz9.5 snowboard boots (Vans & Flow), but had to get 10's in DC. So I'd say size up at least a half size, but probably a whole size.

The Judge boot is awesome though. I just got mine and can wait to get them on the snow. The dual zone boa is great for getting things dialed just right, especially around the ankle. And, the boot has a really big toe box. I have a wide foot and sometimes have issues riding the hairy edge between wearing boots loose enough to not cause massive pain in my arches while still having them tight enough to keep my ankles down.
