Thread: Are Anarchy Radney Goggles Shatterproof?

  1. #1

    Default Are Anarchy Radney Goggles Shatterproof?

    Most people who go out and buy goggles like this intend to use them at relatively high speeds, as in downhill skiing or snowmobiling. At such speeds, if you should happen to stop abruptly in a crash, you really don't want something to shatter when it's an inch from your eyes. Can you trust Anarchy goggles not to do that?

    Yes, according to The Snowboarder's Guide (to the Galaxy?) Anarchy Radney goggles are shatter resistant.

    Now I'm curious, can you shatter sunglasses in the snow?

    I don't think you will shatter your sunglasses in snow; most collisions don't happen to a skier or a snowmobiler hitting snow. They hit things like rocks and trees. Those will mess up your goggles.

    That's good to know, Jawa. Thanks for posting an answer to the question, and for making an oblique reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

    You're welcome Jawa. Do you know where your towel is?

    No, you're Jawa. I'm Privateyez.

    And yes, I know where my towel is at all times. I'm so secure that I can confidently begin my post with a conjunction.

    Oh. Right. How could I have gotten so confused? I guess it has to do with typing instead of speaking and directing my comments to someone I can't see.

    Maybe it's the coffee . . .

    It's okay, Jawa. This world is a confusing place. Even for people wearing Anarchy goggles.

    Perhaps Jawa needs to locate his or her towel or maybe get a new one.

    I bet. Thank you for your medical opinion, Nursenancy.

    What if it gets really cold? Are sunglasses brittle in freezing conditions?

    I don't make sunglasses, but I do wear them a lot, and I've not noticed them getting brittle in cold weather. It would probably be best to wear Anarchy goggles though, if possible.

    There's your highly unscientific answer.

    Sunglasses may becaome brittle in the cold, but I doubt that ski goggles--designed to be worn in snow and ice, mind you--would have such a disadvantage.

    You have a point there. Nursenancy. Thanks for helping us see the obvious.

    You're probably right, Nursenancy. I think that the lenses in a pair of goggles are a little on the soft side, aren't they?

    True. Cartoon characters don't need protection, although they may go through the motions.
