Adamwrote a review of Smith I/O MAG Chromapop Goggles on March 14, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love Smith goggles...have had many pairs over the years. My biggest issue has always been changing the lenses. My IO7's are super annoying when it comes to swapping out lenses. Other manufacturers have figured this challenge out, and I was excited when Smith came out with the IOMag. I like everything about this goggle except for 1 critical flaw, and that is the plastic swivel where the strap connects to the goggle. I broke 2 separate pairs of goggles in the same exact place: the plastic cracked and broke off where the pivot point of the strap meets the goggle base. I wish I could explain this better...but...it appears to be a very weak design, especially when this plastic gets cold. I want to love these, but am now returning my 2nd pair.
Smith Warranty will only allow me a $240 "credit" that is good for 1 year. Not super helpful now that I've already replaced the Mag's, and lord knows I don't need another pair of sunglasses.
Absolutely cannot recommend these unless they change the design. I've seen plenty of other reviews on other sites of people having the exact same issue.
