I demoed these for a recent storm out here in UT. 10 hours of riding 2+ feet of fresh really let me get a good feel for these skis across a wide range of conditions.
In straight powder, they're incredibly responsive and agile. I felt very confident sending more stuff than normal in the woods, and never had an issue with landing.
The rocker is a dream, not too much of it (see surface's rocker) and definitely not too little. Landing switch in deeper snow was much easier than on my previous skis ('12 kung fujas).
All in all- highly recommended. Be sure to mount close to, or at the dead center of the ski, otherwise you're limiting yourself on the performance the skis will deliver.

Just picked these up since my persimmon lenses were making me a little blind on sunny days. I had planned to swap out the lens for varying conditions, but the Dark Grey handled bright sunlight and flat-light like a champ. Not to mention if you have black frames, the dark lenses make you look like a boss.
On the durability side of things... I didn't set out to test the durability, but in my first day riding with the goggles I tomohawked off a small cliff (thanks to the lack of snow in the wasatch so far) and ended up catching a ski to the face... My goggles didn't see the slightest scratch from the incident.

My only problem was the difficulty with swapping out the lenses. It's a simple method, but next to impossible to do without smearing fingerprints all over the goggles, which I'm sure has completely ruined the anti-fog treatment.

The Arctic Yowie has gotten great reviews across the board. I wanted to see what the buzz was about so I picked one up and took it for some laps at Alta. Temps were in the upper 20s and the Yowie handled it like no other face protection I've ever worn. The polyester that makes up the printed part of the Yowie seemed to wick very well, as I had it up over my face the entire time. The fleece was nice, but was actually a little too warm since it was calm. My only complaint is the un-hemmed ends of the Yowie. Both the fleece and the polyester had raw edges, which seem like they'll be prone to fraying, and are distracting.
