Looking for good protection at a good price I tried both the Tasman and the Colorado. The Tasman fit well w/o the side shields, but with them, felt a bit tight. The colorado are much larger, maybe even too large, but this is mainly aesthetic. Even though they are big, they fit well, secure, and offer good coverage and keep the light out.

Fit is quite wide. I measured the inside width at the hinge joint at 5". Behind that the templates spread out even further to a mx of 5.5" before tapering back down over the ears. The profile isn't as round as the throttle lending itself to wider or flatter faces. The nose bridge is also slightly narrower pulling the lenses away from your face slightly. I have a 58cm head and they are almost too wide, but work fine. Lenses go in easily, and slightly harder to get out. This indicates the lenses are held in pretty securely. Haven't had any problems with them popping out. Quality overall is good. The throttles seem to be slightly better as far as lens fit in the templates and overall quality. The rims are very thin and the templates flex a bit if you try to bend them. This causes the lenses to "squeek" as they move around every so slightly which occurs when you clean them. The throttles are stiffer and don't suffer from this nearly as much. The rubber brow area is glued on and made of high density rubber. They are ok, but I like the molded in ones better...they are less bulky. Theses are made in Italy while the throttles are made in Mauritius. I purchased the asphalt, and the finish is slightly different than the throttles in asphalt. The attacks are a flatter black and slightly gray with a almost a soft finish while the throttles are darker black with a smooth hard finish with slightly more luster. The rubber pads all around are grippy and work well. The cam action hinges were already worn out new out of the box. Maybe due to the softer plastic? I like the finish and lens fit of the throttles better, but need a wide template for high intesnsity activities, so these fit the bill.

I have a big head (23" helmet size) on the wide side but took a chance with theses not having tried them. The attack were just a little too big. The fit is really good, any narrower and it would touch the side of my face. There is just enough clearance all the way around. The fit is low profile and very comfy. Lenses stay put and are easy to replace once you get the hang of it. I do it slightly differently than the directions and it works so much easier. I like the blue reflex. Very happy. I own the dash xr and fit OK, but sit too low on my nose.

Great jacket. I'm 5-9 and 160lbs. Small fits well even over a light fleece and down vest. I found the med a bit large. Hood fits over my climbing helmet, and packs small and tight. Waist length works out well for hiking. Sometimes prone to powder entry on deep backcounty ski days, but I usually use it for hiking in the winter. No complaints.
