Yule & Bellow answered it perfectly. Make sure after you ski you let the goggles sit in a warm place for a couple hours, then place them back in a dry case or bag and they will be ready to adjust to the conditions again. If you keep them moist or cold from skiing and then go out again the next day they will fog. This Happens to me every time. I always make sure they have time to warm up and dry in a warm room for at least a couple hours.

I will also add, the non-turbo fan series Phenom goggle lens also fit the same as the turbo fan series Phenom. I bought a bunch of the Smith Phenom lens and use them on my Phenom Turbo-fan. The only difference is the lens on the non-turbo fan have an added sliding vent at the top. I like it better then not having the sliding vent anyways... seems like an added bonus to me. I've been using the goggles and lens a lot for over 3 years now.

There's a sensor there! Your choice. they fit though, and no performance is lost, performance improved in my opinion.

Smith Knowledge OTG Turbo Fan: Accommodates a wide range of eyeglass sizes, should fit all types of bulky glasses.

Smith Prophecy Turbo Fan: Accommodate most eyeglasses without the added bulk of traditional OTG goggles. More of a tighter, close fit goggle for glasses.

Smith Phenom Turbo Fan: For everyone that DO NOT wear glasses.

I suggest you look around at buying a sensor lens, or wait for BackCountry.com to stock up on more Sensor versions, if your after the sensor, and assuming you don’t wear glasses under the goggles... The Phenom is the style you'd want to go for.

Hope that helps :)

These boots are a 104mm of a last width (Forefoot) which is a wide boot compared to a lot out there.

If your more worried about comfort for your feet then this boot, the best way is to go to a ski shop boot fitter and get them to punch-out the boot's forefoot sides. It's like a custom boot for you then.

I had this done for my ski boots after unbearable pain because of a wide foot. It can save you lots of money looking for a ski boot that will never be custom like getting some TLC from a ski shop fitter.

Yes they would, the case is plenty big enough width wise, and definitely hight wise as well.
I bought it for my Smith Phenom w/ Turbo Fan, I noticed it easily fits other goggles I have.

This case should fit most goggle's, if not all.
Worth it, if your goggles are expensive.
I hope that helps. :)

The lens is not true like a mirror you see...

The lens is not true like a mirror you see from Oakley's sensor line. With a bright light aka Camera flash or night light from night skiing you do see a good sensor/ mirror look. In flat light you see the persons eyes, however it's still mirrored but not 100% true. around the 70-80% and 90% on a sunny day.

I have all the lens, none of them are a true 100% mirror which is a down for style.

Hope that helps. Green Mirror Sol-X lens on Smith Phenom turbo fan goggle.

I own the Smith Phenom Turbo Fan Goggle for about 3 years now. I have a variety of different lenses. They all do their job and I'm happy with Smith rather than going with Oakley like most other individuals. The only thing that I can say that separates Smith from Oakley is Oakley tends to lean more on the straight mirrored lens look that people enjoy, where someone can see a 100% reflection. I was disappointed with not being able to get a lens like that from Smith. Smith lenses are not a true mirror like Oakley can provide. Other then this style difference, Smith lens do the job of staying fog free and provide good vision in the conditions of which the lenses are required.

Performance wise, Smith gets an A-plus. I would have liked to see more of a straight 100% mirror lens like Oakley provides since it’s a popular attraction for most resort skiers and boarders.
