Trainers!

It is coming on winter for those of us in the northern hemisphere, and I'm not too interested in biking in snow and cold. Further, my mountain bike fits me perfectly; the bike fitter said he couldn't do anything to improve it for me. So I'm thinking of getting a trainer.

Has anyone used them? Thoughts, opinions, reviews, warnings?

This year I'm planning to bike farther into the winter than I've done before. One thing I'm thinking is that it might be convenient to get a different lock, one that's easier to open and close with gloved or mittened hands. (Right now I'm using a combination U-lock, one of the ones with four dials that each need to be turned to the right setting before it will open. I like not having to carry a key, but it's hard to turn individual dials with gloves on.) Do you have any suggestions for easy-to-work U-locks?

I'm also thinking of getting some goggles I can wear over my glasses--lately my eyes have been tearing up when I ride, and I don't want to have tears freezing on my face this winter. :-) Any advice you have there beyond "try some on at REI" (my current plan) is welcome.
