Review: I just used these goggles for the first time yesterday and the day before at Hollywood Sports. I like them a lot, they are by far the best goggles I have ever used. They are comfortable and fit snugly without a chin strap. My previous goggles, JT Nvader, had a limited field of vision that gave me tunnel vision. The Helix does not. Also, the lens-change system is revolutionary and simple. It takes thirty seconds to remove and replace the lens, but the lens is still secure and does not rattle or slip. They are also much smaller, lighter, and lower-profile than the Nvader, which had the "forehead" plastic area above the lens.
*Edit*
I have since bought a smoke thermal lens. Vents thermal lenses run about $20. It helps a lot, never fogs, and with proper care, does not scratch easily. It's less expensive to buy the lens with the mask.
Conclusion: A good, affordable, reliable goggle system. Buy the thermal version.
