Really love this hoodie. Consider it a hoodie with a built in liner. The thickness of the hoodie and semi water resistance make this a great hoodie for snowboarding on mild to chilly blue bird days. Has a zippered pocket on inside of chest to hold a couple items. The look of it makes it a great all around jacket to wear whenever and wherever. Just pick your color and you wont be disappointed. True to size I believe.

The glasses stay put nicely when riding chunky sections of trail. Night vision is pretty clear and the glasses don't appear to darken anything at all when it's dark out. They do a decent job during the day but don't expect the photochromic lens to darken brightness too much when the sun is facing you. I mainly got these for afternoon/evening ride eye protection anyway so I'm happy. The price point is good, but if your activity is strictly day time maybe there's something better out there but I'm keeping mine so I'll never know. The zippered soft case it came with makes for a nice place to store things but it's a little bulky just for storing the glasses.

Nice goggles! Face mask is a nice bonus.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The first time I used these goggles the temperature was in the upper 20s/low 30s and the snow guns were blowing full force on the mountain so it was a perfect day to use the facemask feature. This review is mainly about that feature.

The goggles are awesome and changing lenses is still easy and quick even though the lens is not magnetic like some of the pricier goggles. If you don’t mind changing your lenses in 25 seconds as opposed to 5 seconds these could be for you.

The facemask easily snapped into the goggle with one gloved hand. It was easy to remove when I needed a little more air and just as easy to snap back on. The only minor issue was that later in the day the frozen moisture stiffened the mask up so I had to gently nudge it in but it still snapped in place even with ice on it.

I’m very happy with this setup. It would be cool if Anon made an aftermarket mask that was thicker material because I doubt I would use the facemask for night riding when the temps are face numbingly cold (especially if snow guns are on). I plan on doing my own mod with some material and Velcro to make the mask still useful for extremely cold temps. Anon hit the mark with these.

I really like this helmet. I bought it primarily for snowboarding but liked the idea of having a better quality multi sport helmet and was upgrading from a $60 Anon Red helmet (mountain biking and snow for me). First of all I got a XL and I feel lucky that it fit. My head measures 23" right at the point the helmet starts on my forehead or where most people would measure for a helmet. I looked and an XL goes up to 24.4" and I can tell you anything close to 23 1/2 might be too tight of a fit so you've been warned braniacs.

As for the helmet itself It feels nice and solid. The earpieces feel like they wont want to wiggle out after multiple removals switching back and forth from sports. The goggle clip is a complaint I hear on a lot of helmets so I always leave mine in regardless so cant really comment on that.

I wore it boarding and of course it fit the bill. Biking with it was not a hassle but this would not be a primary bike helmet. I only say that because of ventilation which does the job, its just that a bike specific helmet would do a little better (note the word "little"). I dont want to fill this helmet up with the sweat of biking.

The helmet looks sick. I like the small window on the back that shows the kevlar lining (nice little touch). I got it in flat black and it looks low key enough for my taste but bad as hell kinda like a billionaire in blue jeans. Anyways just get the helmet if you dont have a head the size of an alien.
