Almost all goggles on the market are double lensed, this one included. Most purveyors of single lensed goggles are cheap off-brand products that you'd probably find in a gas station heading up to the resort.If you're looking at particularly good venting, Smith's goggles with their helmets are designed to work together for no fog. I didn't believe all the marketing hype around Smith's lineup, but after trying it all myself, it makes a huge difference in terms of visibility in any conditions and reduced eye strain with their tapered lens optics.To be fair, I'm burnt out on Oakley because I've had too many of their products fail on me; Smith on the other hand stands behind their gear and gives you better equipment, fairer prices, and a lifetime warranty to boot.Smith Helmets:http://search.backcountry.com/exec/?mv_session_id=L4J2MQQn&aff=1&q=smith+helmet&x=0&y=0Smith Goggles:http://www.backcountry.com/store/SMI0466/Smith-Phenom-Turbo-Fan-Goggle.htmlhttp://www.backcountry.com/store/SMI0462/Smith-Prodigy-Goggle.htmlhttp://www.backcountry.com/store/SMI0391/Smith-Anthem-Spherical-Series-Goggles-Mirror-Lens-Womens.htmlI'm interested to hear what you decide to buy, and feel free to drop me a line if you have any other questions.Cheers!Matt Fuller - mattf@bikemonkeyranch.com

The length of the ski is really a personal preference, I'm similarly sized and prefer to ski on a 167, even in the backcountry. I'd shy away from the 185, if you're looking to ski *on* the powder instead of in it, I'd recommend wider skis over longer skis.The primary difference between the Lines is a narrower tip and wider waist. This slightly alters your turn radius, but nothing close to noticing.If you're not dead set on a twin tip, I'd seriously consider the Rossi Phantom SC80. It's a fantastic all mountain ski, and the integrated binding system makes everything a snap. They're my primary ski of choice, and I just bought a pair for my dad. He can't wait to take them up onto the hill this week.http://www.backcountry.com/store/ROS0395/Rossignol-Phantom-SC-80-Alpine-Ski-w-Axial2-120-Binding.htmlNo matter what you wind up with, I'm interested to hear how it works out for you. Drop me a line if you'd like more help deciding or to let me know what you choose.Cheers!Matt Fuller - mattf@bikemonkeyranch.com

This unit probably won't output enough wattage to support a space heater of any size. Look at any big-box retailer for a power inverter in the auto or electronics section. Make sure it outputs enough wattage (look for constant output, not the peak) for your particular heater and you'll be in business.If your truck is running, you shouldn't have any problems running a small space heater. If it's off, your battery will pay the price rather quickly.

Yakima's fairing is designed to fit around the Yakima RoundBars. You would be able to rig the clips around your aero/oval shaped factory cross bars using some zip ties, but the product isn't "designed" for that purpose.That being said, we all know your sticker collection needs a place to live.

The Limited Edition Roubaix has Windtex Dream fabric, which makes it more windproof. If you're out in the blustery cold, it would make a difference.As for sizing, it really depends on how snug you like your gear. Personally, I would choose the XL if I were in your situation. I'd imagine that it will fit snugly, but not too tight.
