Stupidly Expensive Goggles with Built In Display (Recon Zeal)

Has anyone seen these yet? The Recon Zeal. They have a display built into display to show a bunch of stats. Speed, alt, and apparently google maps?

YouTube - Recon HUD Goggles - The Most Advanced Snowboarding Goggles

they run about 400 bucks I think? As much a cheaper board. Man, I'd hate to accidentally smack into a tree with those on.

We had several of those in stock. They all sold out. Must have been during our 20% off deal which brought them down to around $320. They retailed for $399 if I remember correctly.

Did you try one, even indoors to see how well the display is presented?

Did she say Strap-in or Strap-on?

Unfortunately not. I'm not a shop employee. I work at our offices. Our warehouse is a separate location which I never go to, but I should for the very reason you state. Try a bunch of stuff on

I don't think we had any of these in the shops though. Internet only.
