Adidas Sport Eyewear - Progressor C Goggles

A pair of good winter goggles can make or break any skier’s experience on the mountain as snow can often prove to be tricky, blinding in bright sun or hard to asses in low visibility. The Progressor C Goggles are built with a Quick-Shift Lenspod System, which caters to the growing demand for easily interchangeable lenses that offer top performance in every weather scenario and lighting condition. The goggles include anti-fog lens technology and ClimaCool dynamic ventilation to prevent lens fogging, and a highly durable and scratch resistant Vision Advantage six base polycarbonate lens that provides 100 percent UVA, UVB and UVC protection. The Progressor C is headwear and helmet compatible, and LST lenses are available in select versions to ensure the best high-contrast vision in low-light conditions.

Adventure awaits with Db Equipment's new technical ski bag, the Explorer.

Designed by skiers for skiers, The Explorer’s ski/snowboard straps attach skis diagonally across the bag or a snowboard vertically under the front straps, and the straps can be pulled inside the bag when not in use. Other features include a tear-proof outer shell with a water-resistant coating, chest strap, protected top pocket for goggles and sunglasses, inner pockets for avalanche gear and compatibility with hydration packs.
