Ziggys Review of the I/O:
 
While the packaging was smooth, it was easy to grip in my teeth and remove from the brown shipping box without disturbing the other box with a round half balling ball looking item. Even without opposable thumbs, the goggles and were easy to remove from the packaging using just my paws and my teeth. The goggles tasted very good, with a bold flavor and with a slight hint of cinnamon. With my master gone, The Smith I/O did give me a good 2 hours of playing pleasure. The strap was very chewy and was also very good for tossing the goggle up in the air and the silicon bead was great playing "tug" with allowing my left paw hold the strap down. 
 
I will put thee goggles ahead of any of my other chew toys but I still prefer a good steak bone. All in all I will give the 2011 Smith I/O 4/5 tail wags.

LOL...I have 2 sets of I/O's for this winter. Both currently stored way above weenie dog eye level. And a couple of old Spy's to run interference.

Can you ask ziggy if he prefers wider goggle straps or conventional width?

I can see the next "Phil's Starthaus Special"...one pair of Smith I/O goggles, slightly chewed, original box shredded.

if he puts a little duct tape on them, he could charge a premium...

I have received new Smith goggles under their lifetime guarantee.  Maybe they will replace them, can't hurt to try.

Nice! 2 hours of fun!

 

Hope my Jack isn't reading over my shoulder and getting ideas. She would love to have at my 2011 Smith Prophecy's.
