<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by KevinH:And what is up with those funky Oakley glasses/goggles they're all wearing? I don't remember ever seeing a pair of those on the mountain. They look like they took the lens out of a pair of goggles and bolted it to the ear pieces from a pair of glasses.
for those of you who still don't know what these are.. here is some that were on ebay:
Those are Oakley Factory Pilots
they are what put Oakley on the map, dude. Find yourself a pair of these... they are true retro-freeskier. I had 2 pair... broke the first pair and was real bummed when I dropped the second pair and lost them... What was ironic was that I called it... I was at Montage ski area on the East face.. where the parking lot is at the top.. I was riding up the lift after the last run... I put the glasses on my zipper of my jacket and then turned to my ski buddy and said "Watch, as sure as $hit...when I get off lift, I will skate over to the parking lot, click out of my bindings and when I bend down to pick up my skis, my glasses will fall off and I will leave them" Sure enough, when we got over to the car.. my Factory Pilots were gone.. never to be seen from again. I guess, it was all for the best...if you ask Kevin
