I have Smith "Prodigy" goggles. One nasty white-out day at Vail, my lenses got all fogged up. At the end of the day, I brought them in the house and dried them out. Now there are water spots on them. When I used a buff cloth to try to remove the spots, I found out that they were neither on the outside or inside of the lens, but actually BETWEEN the outer and inner lens. Upon removing the lens from the goggle, I found out that Smith has a second lens set into a rubber-like material around the perimeter of the main lens. I can't separate the two lenses.

Any suggestions on how to clean off the water spots?

Hmm....not real sure actually. Did you happen to blow out the foam/gasket that connects the two? If so they may warranty the lens. I'd give Smith a call regardless, they have good customer service and can probably give you some advice.

Definitely check into the warranty option. I live in rain forest so moisture is always an issue. When I get any between the lenses of my Oakley's I set them on my Peet boot drier.

I shelled out the cash for a polarized lens. I wear polarized in all my sunglasses so I figured might as well keep it constant with the lens.

I love it. The depth detail is just incredible, and the rose color is great in all conditions. Icy spots actually "glow" pink.
