Vantage Helmet

rated 5 of 5 stars Best helmet on the market in my opinion! The Vantage was designed for hard-core skiers/riders; it features an amazing ventilation system, BOA on the fly adjustment system, and Koroyd aerocore construction which makes it one of the lightest snow helmets on the market. Testing I purchased this helmet at the beginning of the 2016-17 ski season and have now used it for 22 days of skiing in conditions that vary from extremely cold (-15 degrees) to temps just below freezing. On a couple of occasions I've… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, interchangeable lenses. I had to replace my Smith Escapades (Lifestyle) because the cold weather snapped them, so I bought the Parallels with ignitor lenses. Just as the other reviewer mentioned, this color lense is great for varying light levels. I am going to try brown, next. I've had these glasses for 4 years and they have been perfect for cycling and running. The looks is a great mid-way between extreme racing and conventional leisure. They come with an optical-quality bag (you… Full review


rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great glasses! Nice lenses, lightweight, durable, good price. Great sunglasses for a great price. I chose the black frames and am happy with the aesthetics. I was a little thrown off by the boxy retro look but it's growing on me. Very lightweight frame makes them comfortable. A little ear soreness after a couple hours of use but not horrible. Polarized lenses are very clear. I've only had them a couple weeks but they look like they will be able to withstand the abuse of biking, hiking, etc. Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Superb optics and great fit. Super lightweight. Great for running and biking. The Parallel frame wraps my face snugly leaving no gaps for air to sneak in. I have a smaller face (apparently) as Smith "medium" glasses usually fit me well.  The frame measures 135mm from temple to temple hinge. My first outing with these was in full sun on snow. The brown polarized lenses are excellent. Cuts glare and enhances contrast. The Ignitor lenses are fantastic for overcast days or transitioning in and out… Full review

Pivlock V90

rated 5 of 5 stars I have nothing bad to say about these glasses. The best sunglasses I have ever owned. Perfect for cycling and I am sure a lot of other outdoors sports. Very light weight and the feeling that I am not wearing anything is fabulous! I am worried about scratching them, although they come with a hard case and if I always put them in the case that shouldn't be a problem. I bought mine for just around $90, but I only got one pair of glasses with a hard case and a cleaner micro fiber bag and an extra nose… Full review
