I headed up to Paris for family visits and a dose of cheese. I wasn't anywhere close to the snow but the public fervently demands its Product of the Week from us, so I decided to take out Spy's 2013 Danny Larsen Platoon Pro Model Goggle and put them to the test against some treacherous Parisian conditions!
It was actually sunny as hell and a perfect day for a stroll around the city. The blazing sun was no match against the Carl Zeiss optics with 100% UV protection and I could see everything perfectly. Thanks to the Scoop ventilation system the 20 degree heat was no issue and my eyeballs stayed cool all afternoon. Its velvety, flexy fit lets you easily forget they are even on your face thanks to the Triple Layer Isotron face foam. On top of all this quality, it has been designed and illustrated inside and out by the man himself: Danny Larsen.
Peep some of the sights I saw:
Notre Dame de Paris
Sculpture garden along the Seine
Jardin des Plantes
Mint tea at The Grande Mosquee de Paris
La Place de la Concorde
My pretty girlfriend
Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel
Pei Pyramids at the Louvre
I wrapped up the day with a visit to La Gaîté Lyrique for a digital art exhibit on the subject of the year 2062. Here's one my favorite video art installations they showed. It's pretty wacky, check it!
Take a look at some of the fine detailing on these badass goggs by Danny Larsen:
The goggles did great in the spring sun of Paris, so they will obviously be able to handle all the conditions the mountain has to throw at you. Right? The 2013 model will be available at the end of summer so look for them and get a pair to strap to your skull!
To celebrate these goggles we wanted to offer some gear but it's too early to give this 2013 model out, instead if you can tell us what page number Danny Larsen is on in the new issue of Method Mag 12.4
