Lineup Includes New Colorways and More Versatile Lens Options Built for Every Skier and Snowboarder
BOULDER, Colo. (December 13, 2018) — Native Eyewear has expanded its 2018-2019 goggle collection to include new colorways and lens options to complement its existing goggle portfolio. The brand reentered the goggle space in 2016-2017 season and has since introduced several leading technologies, including a photochromic lens that reacts to UV light, lens interchangeability systems and superior fog diffusion coatings. Additionally, the goggle collection is designed for hard-charging skiers and snowboarders who spend their season on the mountain as well as those looking for a comfortable, high quality goggle for their winter vacation.
“Overall, we’ve found a sweet spot in the premium space: We have exceptional technologies at an attainable price tag,” says John Sanchez, General Manager of Native Eyewear. “This year we added even more versatility to our line with several new strap and lens combinations starting at just $99. We now have a fit, function and style for every type of skier and snowboarder.”
“Trying to find a goggle that will hold up all season long with the latest technology and style always seemed impossible, but I can honestly say Native goggles do that and more,” said Native athlete and professional snowboarder, Chad Otterstrom. “Riding in Native goggles has changed the way I ride because they perform and adapt in all types of conditions.”

The Tank-7 offers additional versatile and safety features so you can have confidence and peace of mind out in the backcountry.

New for 2018-2018, the Upslope includes an additional bluebird day gray lens for sunny days.
SNOWTUNED™ Technology All Native goggles include SNOWTUNED™ lens technology which also features color-enhancing filtration that helps subtle colors and details of a snow-covered landscape appear livelier, while selective filters reduce eye fatigue from HEV light. Combine this with the multi-mirror, hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings, and you have long-lasting quality that will repel oils and water in any snow condition.
Bio-Based Frames All Native goggle frames use a castor-based resin that provides one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios in the market. Frames also include a tapered nasal fit and hypoallergenic, fluted face foam that enhance airflow through the goggles even further, providing maximum comfort and clarity for every snow-filled adventure.
Native Eyewear believes that quality gear shouldn’t come at the cost of our outdoor playground. In addition to bio-based frame resin, the Native packaging has been thoughtfully created. The FORT™ goggle case, a complimentary storage case, is highly functional and reusable in an effort to eliminate our reliance on wasteful packaging. With space for sunglasses, phone, cards, an ID, and other small adventure necessities, it’s easy strapping system seamlessly attaches to your pack allowing for quick venting and drying.
