First of all I love this watch. I have a smaller wrist and the dimensions are perfect to give a nice masculine large watch look without it looking ridiculously huge on me. Movement has been smooth and accurate running at ~+10 secs a day which is well within spec. It also only deviates about +-2 seconds from the +10 so I but if I had it regulated it would be close to spot on. Quick change date is sweet as well and seems to turn over about 4 min before midnight.

One nitpick is the bezel on the all black edition. Tungsten shouldn't really scratch...but this is tungsten that is coated black. I got a scratch in the coating and you can see a bit of the silver metal underneath. Pretty dumb to do this with tungsten, they would have been much better using the titanium carbide stainless steel on the bezel as well. The rest of the watch (with the exception of the clasp that I rub on my desk all day) is looking perfect!

Let me start off by saying the sensor mirror is the best non bluebird lens I've used. If there is even a hint of a cloud in the sky I reach for that lens. I had a pair of the prodigy frames and while I loved the lens, the frame didn't fit my smaller face so well. I picked up the phenoms on steep and cheap after reading reviews that the frame was bit smaller. Indeed it is, and it fits my face perfectly. Strange thing is that while the frame fits without any gaps it seems the nose foam is a bit too close to my eyes unless I situate it just right. I also have a pair of Anon Solace goggles that have about the same fit on the face, but the nose foam on the Anon's seems to be trimmer and doesn't require any adjustment to feel right.

Used these pants twice so far and have nothing but good news to report. eVent truly does live up to the hype and breathe better than your normal pu lined waterproof/breathable membrane. Its warm out in CO early season and the pants never felt sweaty or clammy, and my ass stayed dry even with my riding buddies constantly spraying me with snow ;)

Fit is more "relaxed" style I would say. Not a super baggy park fit, but not an efficient backcountry cut either (I tried on a pair of Oakley Alps pants and found them to be quite a bit baggier). Got a Medium and I'm 5'9" 160lbs. I got quite a bit of room in the waist (waistband adjusters work well to suck that up) and the length is a tad on the long side for me but not bad. I am using these for snowboarding (no snowboarding companies use eVent this year as far as I know), so keep in mind my boots are likely a lower height than a ski boot.

Vents work well and have been snag free, same with the pockets. Nice pants!

Wow, I'm really impressed with this board. I used to ride hard boots so I wanted a stiffer freestyle board that could still lay down a carve without the board turning into a wet noodle. Man, magne traction is no joke in these early season conditions. It really works and surprised me that it didn't seem to interfere at all with laying down some turns (I thought it was just for sliding around the mountain with detuned edges). Base has also seemed really durable too. Nailed a number of rocks pretty good and it just has a few small scratches in it. Heads up that this board is STIFF though. I don't buy lib tech's scale as this thing is way stiffer than the banana despite it being only one or two numbers stiffer on their scale. Sweet ride, and seems to do everything well.
