Lenses are fantastic, Technology is out of this world, Interface is truly amazing. but the visibility OUT of these goggles is downright dangerous. They sit significantly farther OFF of your face, forward, and the components on the either side of the goggle itself restrict your peripheral vision. There is restricted visibility also, up and DOWN while looking ahead. Using these on a busy mountain, resort, or trail is very risky, esp for snowboarders who already have to over come blind spots. Its sort of like looking forward through a shoebox. very disappointing, because these would have been awesome, they would have been my last goggle.

I feel its much safer to use a regular wide view goggle with a good GPS strapped to your arm or pack that you can glance at. The HUD in the goggles is not restricting, its the goggle conforming to accept the hardware that makes the field of vision so closed in. total bummer :( hopefully in the near future this will be sorted out, and i can buy the next generation.

Jacket fits, looks and works in every way imaginable. This jacket is highly flexible. Ive used it for hiking in freezing rain, and snowboarding. whenever i wear it im always comfortable. It does well in very cold temps and it was also comfortable to wear when afternoon temps got into the 40's on the mountain by stripping off a few under layers. It does pick up some dust, pet hair easily but otherwise its very durable, highly cleanable and very tough. I went sliding down ice while snowboarding several times the jacket holds up like a champ. It stops wind and moisture from getting to your core.

Ive owned it now for about 3 months, not sure how i lived without one. Im 5'11" 180lbs. and the Large size fits me very well, plenty of room for movement.

I needed a jacket that could withstand low temps and pack up SMALL into a suitcase. THIS JACKET IS IT! It's light, folds up small, and it's warm. The 'shell' isnt a typical hard shell, it's a soft material. The skin has a feel to it that's a blend between a wetsuit skin and fabric. It is very water resistant and keeps the wind and elements out. I'm a 16 neck (about 175lbs), bought a large, and it fits perfect. The jacket has draw ties at the waist and hook-and-loop closures at the arm ends to keep drafts out.

Great Value
Weather resistant
Folds up small
LIGHT!
Excellent service. Thanks!
