Thumbs up Oakley's saved my life.

This is the story of how my goggles saved my life <---(exaggeration)

It was probably my second or third season riding a few years ago. So im cuttin sideway to try and make it closer to the lodge when i got on the the bottem side of a large hump in the snow where the mountain got steeper. i was cutting heelside so my back was up the mountain (Dont worry i learned my lesson). So, you know that best guy at your mountain, who shreds harder then anyone, does crazy shit you wish you could do, and is there riding every day no matter what. Well "that guy" was cruisin down and ollied off that previously mentioned hump in the snow, floats over and sees me... in the way. He yells while still in air, i look up right as he collides into me going probably about mach 3. So i looked up and first contact was the side of his head, hitting my goggles. We got tangled up and tumbled down and down.... and down, about the distance from 1 lift tower to the next, maybe 200ft. i stood up all confused with some minor aches, but my head was fine thanks to my Oakley's. He just laid there not knowing what the fuck was going on. Once i realised what happened, i felt like kind of an ass for being in the way. When ski patrol came and i found out he had a concussion, i felt like a bigger ass. Then when i found out him and his crew were driving up to whistler the very next day, and he couldnt go cuz of his new injury, i felt like the biggest douche bag ever.

however the purpose of this post is that my Oakley O-Frame goggles left me without a scratch, bump, or bruise. And my goggles weren't even the slightest bit scratched or broken or anything. Buy Oakleys.
