The Protect Our Winters (POW) campaign started with the fairly simple – and seemingly overwhelming – idea of uniting the snowsports community in the fight against climate change. And since the inception of POW, that community has responded in a huge way, with world-class athletes, prominent companies, major resorts, and everyday outdoor enthusiasts coming together to help find a solution to a problem that impacts every one of us.
One of the corporate POW partners is optics manufacturer SPY, who has developed a special-edition version of their popular Ace goggle to help raise awareness of – and money for – POW’s mission. Like all of the Ace goggles, this model features SPY’s Quick Draw lens change system, and comes with a bonus lens for just $120, making it one of the most affordable quick-change-lens goggles on the market today.
Available at spyoptic.com, the POW goggles also incorporate 100 percent biodegradable Plantate material in the frame and feature SPY’s Superior Injected Curve lenses that are designed to provide better impact protection and a higher-quality optic. And to help make sure you always have a clear view of the mountain in front of you, the POW goggles include the Scoop ventilation system and anti-fog, scratch-resistant lenses.
For every pair of the special-edition goggles sold, SPY will donate a portion of the proceeds to the POW campaign, but what might have even more impact is the bold Protect Our Winters band that runs across the back of your helmet and reminds everyone who sees it about the importance of standing together against climate change.
