Glade Optics MagFlight named best of new goggles in Blister Winter Buyer’s Guide

October 25, 2021

High praise for magnetic lens tech from “the bible of ski gear”

BRECKENRIDGE, CO /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – The new MagFlight goggles from Glade have been named among the best of new goggles of 2021-2022 in this season’s Blister Winter Buyer’s Guide, and both the buyer’s guide and the goggles are available for pre-order now.

Glade’s MagFlight goggle features an innovative quick-change lens technology, powered by rare earth magnets. Unlike other magnetic goggles, no additional fasteners are required to keep the lens in place, so adapting to changing conditions is super simple and fast.

The Blister Buyer’s Guide is an annual, encyclopedic overview of the best new ski gear, the product of an entire season’s worth of testing by a team of expert skiers. Blister is known for producing in-depth, nuanced reviews for avid, core users who don’t take their gear choices lightly.

“If you’re not familiar with the Blister Winter Buyer’s Guide, it is considered by many (myself included) to be the bible of ski gear,” said Curt Nichols, founder of Glade. “Their reviews are 100% independent, unpaid, and unbiased – so this award is a huge honor.”

Glade Optics is a skier-owned company out of Breckenridge, Colorado, founded on the idea that ski gear should come from core skiers who live in the mountains — not from sterile conference rooms hundreds of miles away from the nearest hill.

“This goggle truly comes with all the bells and whistles, and it’s a full $75 cheaper than the next best goggle recommended by Blister this year,” said Nichols. “This fully backs up our claim that our goggles are both better and cheaper than any other goggle on the market right now.”
