Default Some Shhtuff on APX

Some cool stuff on APX. First off, a new APXS with a 15% smaller frame will be out now/soon. They are petty cool and actually fit a lot of faces. Second is the NASA fog proofing. Not sure why NASA (is there space fog?) but this stuff works unreal. Lastly, the rubber horizontal support resists ice clearing and won't tear up like foam. There are two removable inserts that allow huge gaping vent holes if you are hiking up. Some pics:

Just to be clear, the photos are of the standard APX.

Damn, those are some steezy ass gogs for sure. I just bought new gogs last season, but these are making me consider another purchase.

NASA uses anti-fog coating on their space helmets because of the humidity that happens inside the suit. Astronauts get really warm in those suits and they have a water cooling system throughout the suit which is powered by their packs. This constant heating and cooling causes condensation in the helmet visor. So they need the absolute best anti-fog protection.

Sorry, astronomy nerd here...

Back on topic... those goggles look so sick.

You know, it was a very good idea for you to post actual pictures of the APX goggles. They look horrible in the stock Dragon pictures. Understandable though as shooting each lens variation would be a pain. Easier to photoshop the colors.

Any Asian workers in your building? Should have them try it on to check fitment on our, well, flatter faces.

Hi Leo,

I worked with an Asian customer yesterday on a pair and in honesty, he passed (not died, just didn't go with the goggles )

I think the new APX S is supposed to do a bit better there, but I have only played with the samples.
