That's a really good deal (price has gone up a bit). I have a pair and used for a week's skiing in France over New Years and never had any issues with fogging. I have a small nose bridge and was worried there might be a gap but it was all fine. The lenses are so good (I have the fire iridium and blue iridium), contrast was great in the sun and shadows. I'll be getting the yellow lens for white out days. This is the easiest frame in the Oakley range to change lenses. Unlock the clip and pop out the lens, pop in the new lens and close the clip. Also the best thing about the airbrake is that it is fully customisable. You can change the strap, outriggers (the side bits!), even the little vents at the top.
Is there an advantage to lense switching over a photo chromatic pair which is what I currently use?
If you intend to "own the park" then a spare pair of goggles are definitely handy, otherwise for free-riding & farting around 1 good pair with multiple lenses, stacking soaks foams, which adds to time down recovering / peering through mist & screwing up twice as bad on the next approach, ..though i'm too old now (really) for park duty I often stuck the number 2 pair in with a charcoal pocket warmer, insulated to dry out the wet pair, alternating is easy, go to a lost property department for a pair of mitts as the polartec inners are typically big enough to make for a really good protector for your goggles ...protecting much more than an oakley fabric bag will ever do. always lift you goggs away from your face don't smear them up your face to your forehead (suncream / wear on the glued foam) also helps air them, sweaty brows will start a lense misting in mere seconds, which again is why you wave em in front of your face to balance the air scoop (cold in) & warm out, top foam beyond the face form fitting compression foam. Never had a problem with goggles that wasn't the fault of the user. Easiest if you don't get into bad habits. cheekychops, as I recall the foam scoop & flow intake has simply received an updated moulding covering with this model when I looked at it, however in the early days of the A-frame the foam scoop was different & also was prone to misting up under certain conditions, I find with A-frames that they feed so much air they can become eyeball watering in their own right & need a tiny bit of damping down, that though is more obvious for me on colder slopes going fast (really fast) when doing measured training runs, then though it's usually -25c or colder & in shade, ..condition dependent really, but changing the angle of my head as soon as I felt it usually resolved it, ..were you were in any form of tuck, head into chin & jacket & possibly restricting your intakes!?
Absolutely, seen so many folk not set their goggles up properly with other clothes / hair in the way / covering vents / face block material directing too much of the moist air breathed up onto the goggle intake / straight into foam / too wrapped up to allow the goggles to simply work as designed / wearing on their head (a heat valve) thereafter they have to adjust, ... in other words usually down to user error or sheer incompetence. dry em out properly, wear em properly, rarely a problem unless you stack & lose the goggle filing it with snow, in which case a bit of maintainance is necessary as you put wet material against your skin & get misted!
Comment Do you actually know anything about anything? The opinion of someone who just goes around voting cold with little justification is not really valid...

HUKD is about Deals on anything NOT price bracket.
if you can afford it why not? is it your place to comment, its suppose to be about the deals!
Comment If you can afford it, buy what you want. I do. Don't worry about the chumps who spend all their lives looking over the fence & moaning about everything. Do what you want, it's none of their business.
100 quid for sunglasses. Numpties.
Good find and heat added. Just a pity I'm too fat and old to get away with wearing these.
