These are a bit different than the straits. The shell feels more stiff and they are also baggier on my knees, though they were described as being slimmer I don't think they are. For some reason, the small size does not have the lower piece of plastic under the main pad that the med+ does. I bought the Rage's but I'm still thinking about getting the straits instead from my LBS.

I picked these up on SAC, it's always a gamble to buy glasses online because they can fit so differently. These are the perfect frames for me. I have a relatively slim face and they fit and function perfectly. I've used these on a many runs, 20 road bike rides, backcountry and in-bounds skied in these and they are great. They haven't fogged up even when skinning up 6000' in the sun.

I have to disagree with previous reviewer, I did a tomahawk fall skiing and these thing stayed on my head. I punched my face right into the snow too.

I haven't changed lenses yet so I can't comment on that.

If you want to sacrifice float for all mountain go 178. If you want to sacrifice all mountain for float go 186.

They are an easy ski to ski I wouldn't be afraid of 186 if you're an expert skier.

I went with 178 for an all mountain PNW setup. I mounted these +2. I'm pretty happy with that mount so far. They aren't my deep pow ski so I don't worry much about float over 6". These ski bumps pretty well, pivot quickly, carve crazy good. The tails are stiff enough landing drops is pretty forgiving. The elliptical rocker is awesome.

Wow, I am shocked by how condescending the women are on here. Leave it to woman to get offended that Backcountry is offering woman's coats in women's colors! How archaic!!! [dripping with sarcasm].

I got this coat for my wife for Christmas, despite the fact that I totally agree buying a gift for a woman is demeaning [sarcasm] and she loves it. We went skiing and we had to do a bit of climbing in some areas, and she said it breathed very well, which is good as it doesn't have pit zips. She looks great in the pink color, although I married her for her inner beauty {hot snow-bunny}. It was beautiful and sunny out so she couldn't test the waterproofness. I will be picking up an Event coat for myself as soon as one shows up on SAC.

I almost forgot to mention I am writing this review for my wife because I bought it not because I am oppressing her individuality. :P
