Dragon Eyewear and 686 are introducing a collaborative capsule collection for Winter 2020.
Inclusive of 686’s Gore-Tex Hydra Thermagraph Jacket and Dragon’s PXV and X2S Goggles, the collection is a creative collaboration between both design teams using a shared dual camo color.
Their approach provided a platform to focus on the style and performance of each brand’s products while giving riders the ability to pair their outwear and goggles on the slope.
“Dragon has been a successful collaborative partner in the past for 686. As we both have matured over the years, it was time to come back together again. Dragon has always had a real connection to snowboarding, skiing and the culture which aligns with 686. The Dragon x 686 capsule’s technical Gore-Tex Hydra Jacket with matching Dragon PXV or X2S Snow Goggle is a perfect on-mountain synergy,” said Patrick McCarthy, 686 team manager.
Dragon and 686 are similarly known for their team roster. Both brands jointly support professional snow and ski athletes, Gigi Rüf, Forest Bailey, Laurent De Martin, and Chase Blackwell, which lends itself to the creation of the capsule collection.
“Our design team works continuously to develop new technologies and innovations,” said Thomas Burkhardt, senior vice president, global brands, marketing and design, Marchon Eyewear, Inc. “Both goggles pair nicely with the 686 jacket making it a collaboration that we are very proud of and giving riders the total package.”
