Abominable F-Bom Goggles – Regardless of what kind of treatment your goggles may say it has on them, they can still fog up. Abominable is the first company to come up with a surefire way to eliminate fog. Their patented Klair technology places a transparent, heat-conductive film between the goggle’s two-part Carl Zeiss lens. By warming up this thin film, fog virtually disappears. Klair technology can run for 7 hours to give you a full day of fog free boarding, or it can give you 7 days with a standby on-demand Boost mode. It just takes one hour to charge up the F-Bom goggles, and they’re ready for purchase now.
Delfonics for Monocle – You know what I love about this latest release from Monocle? It has nothing to do with Delfonics’ ability to make something with Japan quality for cheap, and everything to do with how they employed PVC. This small three piece accessories collection skips the expensive leather, and does just as well by using a black scotch grain plastic that has the feel and texture of leather. The cases are waterproof and the largest case is ideal for organizing little things like cables, memory cards, and chargers. A wallet and business card holder round out the small collection, and they’re all available for under forty bucks.
