LOOK OUT SMITH, cause the Airbrakes are here!
BEST goggles hands down. Very comfortable and the quick lens change is easy breezy.

For me, the big issue about goggles with quick lens changing technology has always been ventilation. I've tried POC corneas, lobes and the Smith I/O s and what they all have in common was they had too much airflow coming in, which made my eyes tear up when I bombed down the slopes. With the Airbrakes, this is completely eliminated. Ventilates well without the hassle of dried contacts. They also did not fog at any time when I used them. The goggles have the comfort level of the crowbars with the widened vision of the splices.

Love everything about the goggles. In my opinion, they are the most comfortable oakley goggles to date. They feel even better than splices and crowbars. The lens switching is a breeze. Easier than the I/O. Very sturdy design too.
Just waiting to test it out now. Let it snow!

After encountering some minor problems with the Corneas, I decided to go with the Lobes instead. Initially, the size of these goggles is what deterred me from getting 'em. I was completely mistaken because these are actually a tad smaller (length left to right, top to bottom) than the Corneas. The spherical design is misleading. (makes it look larger than it actually is)

The goggles are just as comfortable as the Corneas but with an even sleeker look. I got a few folks ask me what kind of goggles I had on. They certainly attract attention. The black lenses worked out perfectly. They are definitely for sunny conditions but I can also see them working just fine for low light and overcast days. I do intend on getting different lenses for night riding.

I love me some Unions. Luckily I was able to get my hands on a pair of the yellow ones this season for cheeeeeeeeeeeap. Anyway, these bindings are 100% cream of the crop - legit to the max. Had the 2008 reds and now the 2010 yellows. My favorite color combo to come out so I'll probably be sticking with these for a loooong time.

I purchased this helmet for my girlfriend and I couldn't be happier. I surprised her with it and she absolutely loved it. She likes the design and she said it's very comfy. I for one am really diggin' the visor. I opted for the EPS system instead of the Brock Foam.

Now I can snowboard without worries because I know her noggin is going to be protected no matter what.

Thank you again Dogfunk! A++

Exceptional styling and very very comfortable. It will set you apart from all the Oakley and Smith crowd. Unfortunately it didn't work out for me.

They let in too much air from the ventilation shafts. On a windy day, it could very well dry out someones contacts.

I had to return these goggles. I am quite disappointed because I really wanted these.

As usual though, Dogfunk customer service is incredible. A++

Excellent comfort + killer looks...everything you can expect from POC. I love POCs design with the ventilation system.

Update: Mid-season I also purchased their Frontal model. The Frontal is a bit lighter and although it's got a fixed foam design (Receptor comes with detachable pads) it's also a bit more comfortable for me. I guess I just have to play with the settings on my Receptor.
