ohhh the chinese

not to belittle cancer at all, but the contacts i just got in smell like some sort of strong ass chemicals. ive had burtons that had a faint plasticy smell to them, but these are ridiculous. my forces from this year don't smell, and my contacts from last season did not, but holy hell my 2010 contacts do. they were in my closet, and my mom was in the basement and yelled to up ask if i was cleaning the shower or something, and it makes me a bit light headed.

anyone elses contacts smell like this? or should i be contacting union.

Are you serious?

Who the shit cares what they smell like as long as they perform haha

In all seriousness though if they use glue in the footbed or something it could be that...

uhh because they are smelling up my entire fucking house while in my closet. its winter and the windows are now open to get this out. and im lightheaded. if im lightheaded in my car and crash the shit out of if before i get to the mountain, then what the fuck does it matter how good they perform.

and no im not driving with the windows down.

edit:
chemical smells usually arent good for you...

Put them in a bag haha

I dunno man I've never heard of bindings having a strong smell like your describing...

My Unions don't have an odor at all

Can you pin point what part of the binding has the smell? Has to be something plastic and theres not a shit load of that on the contacts

That's weird man..... I would be careful with that. Maybe a glue hasn't set up and could cause a fracture in "something"?

Or give them a tomato juice bath ( =

They might be Chinese.

Are you sure it's the binding and not something else in the closet that spilled on it?

I was thinking the Chinese thing. They smelled as soon as I opened the box, so no drip

Probably the same thing they put in their baby food.

So in other words, you're gonna die - either from binding failure or kidney failure.
