These gloves are the nuts. The design is pretty low profile (but they ain't no park gloves) yet they are warm enough for even the coldest days, unless you're a pussy of course. The Gore Tex keeps you dry inside, but here's where there's a little bit of a let down: The cuffs of these gloves are made from neoprene, so they are pretty stretchy, and from the photos above it makes you think it would hug your wrist and keep the snow out in a ragdoll. However, they have made the wrists way too wide! Like an inch too wide, so wide infact that you don't even need to undo the zip to get them on, and thats without stretching the neoprene!
Anyhow, it isn't the end of the world, and apart from that these gloves are the muts nuts, but it's like they put a load of effort into designing a fantastic glove, and then half arsed it on the last yard of design. And that frustrates me. Still tho, its a totally sick glove.

This goggle is the shit. Just got it in Kaleidoscope Block Text with the fire iridium lens and its the nuts. I had the Crowbar before this, and swore I'd never buy another goggle, but this was the exception to that oath. I've used plenty of other goggles before (Dragon, Electric, Anon) and although some were excellent, they didn't touch the Oakleys. But thats just my preference. Everyone has a different face.
As far as the new frame design, it definitely reduces the pressure on the nose and makes it much easier to breath, but dont go buying a new pair just cos they're the new thing on the block. They are definitely a better design than the crowbar, but not by much. If your crowbars are still in good shape, stick with them. I upgraded cos I broke my frame. For those of you not used to Oakleys, I'd suggest an iridium (fire, blue, black etc) for the sunny days, and a high intensity yellow lens for the powder whiteouts.
Overall I'm super happy with this goggle, and will be rocking them everyday this season.
Peace.
