by boyscout111fromExpensive for what you get...I used it about 4 times before taking it back to rei. What I liked was obviously the speedometer, the odometer, and the temp gauge. But one of the main problems I had at the beginning was that I could not get the screen to adjust so I could not see it properly when skiing. After calling zeal I sorted the problem out by removing the lens. and manhandling the screen housing. But overall, one of the best parts of the googles is the lens. The photo chromatic tech works fantastically and helps a skier see in any light condition, from miday sun to midnight runs. Also the polarization gives increased visibility down the mountain to spot hazards ( which is an obvious benefit) but in the end I returned it because although its a cool piece of gear, it is not worth the the outrageous price, instead I opted for the zeal sppx photocromatic without the gps option, which was much more reasonably priced and included the great lenses that I found most attractive on the z3 gps googles that I returned

by mjndaofromAmazing !!! these goggles are fantasticI use the goggles for skiing and they are extremely convenient in providing me all the information that I need while I'm on the slopes like speed, altitude, time etc... the style and the design are cool. The ability to choose screen feature with a remote control is awesome.
The 2 things that bother me a bit are the weight and the fit specially on my nose.
