Wy We Like The I/O MAG Chromapop Goggles

We thought the I/O couldn't get any better at keeping our eyes on the prize, snow or shine, and then Smith's I/O MAG came along. The I/O MAG Chromapop Goggles comes with all the same technological advantages as Smith's previous top-tier I/O series, now with a lens change system that's easier than ever to use. Magnets placed throughout the frame resist natural forces when you're ripping around the mountain, yet make midday lens changes a snap when the clouds roll in post-lunch.

  • Enjoy crystal clear vision no matter the weather
  • Chromapop technology delivers color-popping contrast
  • Magnetic frame swaps out replaceable lenses in a flash
  • Durable outer lens is scratch- and impact-resistant
  • Hydrophobic coating repels moisture, grease, and grime
  • Porex filter prevents distortion during elevation change
  • 3-layer face foam offers moisture-wicking comfort
  • Helmet-compatible design promotes ventilation and safety

My Favorite Ski Goggles

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Great field of vision with these. The chromapop lenses provide great clarity when skiing, and the always stay fog free. The googles themselves and the foam gasket are extremely comfortable, and these fit me very well with my Smith Vantage MIPS Helmet (XL), I do not experience any nose discomfort with these goggles. Lens changes aren't the fastest ever, but it's not that difficult, I do always end up with fingerprints on the lenses when changing them.

My favorite of all goggles.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I love these. This is my second pair, after these I’ll buy em again. They fit great and look amazing! These fit really well with Smith helmets. Swapping the lenses on goggles have never been easier and I can’t wait to rock these this winter.

Love These Goggles!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

If you are needing a new pair of goggles, look no further. No issues with the lens falling out like other mag goggles. Only takes a time or two to figure out how to change lenses then it is easy!

Most scratch prone lenses ever

    In 4 decades of skiing I’ve never had less durable lenses. If you fog these, wipe with cloth or finger, you will ruin the lens. I’ve used 2 lenses in 4 days of skiing, ruining both. I was shocked. I’m picky about taking care of glasses and goggles. Had pair of Oakley goggles for years. A third the price of the Smiths. Never had to buy a new lens. My $55 Suncloud sunglasses? Just dandy. Wipe them with cloth, shirt, paper towels. No problem. I’ve never had such an expensive piece of gear be so lame.

    Terribly delicate, easiest scratched len

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I’ve skied for decades, am very careful with my goggle and glass lenses. Had pair of Oakley goggles for years without having to change a lens. Got 4 days on new Smith I/o mag goggles and both lenses badly scratched. First, rose tint lens fogged a bit even though it was plenty cold out and I used my cloth face mask to wipe out a bit. Not particularly aggressive at all. Did that 3 times, rendered the lens useless. So next trip to Wolf Creek, 29” dump, we’re hiking the ridge, getting a bit warm, goggles fogging a bit again. Using brand new darker lens that came with...very gingerly take my bare finger to wipe/disperse condensation. No fingernail came close. Yep, marred that lens. $275 for this? I’ve got $55 Suncloud sunglasses I wear all the time and over the years used paper towels, T-shirts, socks to wipe them off because they’re durable and don’t scratch easily at all. If I were Smith I’d be ashamed. I’m taking goggles back to shop where I bought them. Already called them and said they shouldn’t sell these overpriced lame excuse for a goggle. And I am easy to please, never complain, take responsibility when I break something due to accident or whatever. Not chronic malcontent at all. Be forewarned. Look at these things and they scratch. Buy some other brand.

    Nice Goggles

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Got these to combine separate low light/everyday goggles to one. I wish the swap was just a little easier. It only take a few seconds but if you are doing it on the lift you are taking your gloves off.
    I found that I could not wear my glasses with these and had to get RX prescription inserts but the combination is good.
    So far I have only used the Everyday Violet Mirror Lens. It was great on sunny day with shadows being cast on the runs. Riding up the chair lift was to bright and might opt for the full sun lenses if I am skiing with the sun in my line of sight.
    Be Careful stretching these over the back of your helmet. I have personally witnessed a failure on the plastic strap attachment to the goggle.

    Great lens

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave this as a gift and he said they are a great to wear, very comfortable and helped with the glare.
    Would recommend.

      Great Goggles; Mine Came w/ Defect

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      Mine came with a defect. Great Goggles though. Backcountry has been great with returns. I will buy a new one of the same style.

      Sexy AF

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Love these goggles, especially the extra lens that came with them! They are perfect for flat light days and they fit perfectly with my Smith helmet.

      Solid Googles

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I really enjoyed these googles! I will say changing the lenses takes some getting used to but you will find your self switching them out with ease before you know it. These googles fit great with every helmet i have used them with. I have not run into any issues with fogging either. all around a great product!

      Completely Disappointed

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I bought these goggles as a birthday gift for my bf, and they didn’t even last half the season. He had issues with them fogging up from early on, which was frustrating to begin with, then one day riding the lift without even touching them heard a “pop” sound as they fell to his lap. The small plastic piece that attaches the strap to the goggle broke off. The quality should be much better given the price point. Zero stars.

      Hi Aubree, contact SMITH customer service and they will send you a new pair. Lifetime warranty on manufacture defects.

      Killer platform with quicker lens change

        The IO series goggles have been a staple in the ski industry for quite some time now. The mag series makes swapping lenses even quicker, and all of the other features we love are still there. Wide peripheral vision, comfortable foam with good airflow, and high quality low light lenses are all standard features. People with larger faces might prefer the IOX model, which has a bigger frame.

        Great Lens, hard to change!

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I really enjoyed the fit and size of these goggles. I typically wear medium sized goggle but I am a small woman! I really did enjoy the entire feel of these goggles. I never fogged them once and they seemed pretty resilient to scratches compared to some of my other goggles!
        The only issue I really had with these was the locking mechnism to change the lens. I couldn't get around to change the lens without actually touching the lens and I don't really like that. I had to carefully wipe away my fingerprints from the corner edge after changing out the lens.
        Maybe it was just a personal issue on how I was swapping them out but I will most likely stick with my Anon WM1 so I can swap out my lenses without touching the front of them!
