Working in surf and snow retailers for the last decade or so has left me in a bitter-sweet situation. So much of my time is spent around the newest, coolest, most progressive products and fashion that I’ve become immune to its awesomeness. Even the fact that I get stuff for free, or at worst – trade price, has lost its shine. I simply find it hard to get excited about new designs and ideas like I used to. I shouldn’t complain, but I’m sure many of you reading this will understand my predicament. It’s my cross to bear….
However, recently I had a moment where I was transported back to being 14 years old, when I received my first snowboard. I’d sleep with it next to my bed so it would be the first thing I’d see upon opening my eyes in the morning. I’d never felt so excited about anything in my life, and I’m not really sure I’ve ever felt that way since. This “flash back” moment was triggered by the delivery of our new range or Dragon goggles. They simply look, and feel, like something the X-Men would wear to fight evil and save the world. The flat-out-bonkers, over-the-top design is so radical that I literally dribbled over the boxes as I unpacked them.
The boxy frame is made from polyurethane and comes complete with a seriously comfortable micro-fleece lining. Naturally, as with a quality brand such as Dragon, they offer 100% UV protection and an anti-fog enhanced lens – which you’ll need whilst chasing your archenemies through the powdery slopes (or snowboarding, depending on your mood).
Quite frankly, if you buy these goggles, you’re going to have it all. They’re insanely comfortable, they protect your eyes as well as any other goggles on the market, but most importantly, they’ll make you look like the coolest kid in town.
