New Snow Collections From Oakley

With temperatures dropping, travel restrictions being lifted, and cooler destinations preparing for an influx of visitors while being COVID-19 safe, many snowboarders and ski junkies are looking for new pieces to invest in. With frightful temperatures and the need for gear to support intense athletic performances, investing in the right collection is paramount. For the most dedicated winter athletes, Oakley is an excellent choice for cold-weather attire.

Today, Oakley launches two all-new snow collections to get snowboards and skiers ready for the upcoming season. The Thermonuclear Protection Collection draws inspiration from the brand’s heritage in motorsports, while the Team Collection garners influence from professional Norwegian Olympic snowboarder Stale Sandbech and his life of travel and adventure. Both collections strive to combine style and performance.

About the Team Collection:

Inspired by Stale’s adventures all over the world, the Team Collection features men’s pieces that can easily transition from mountain gear to streetwear. The range can be adapted for the “on-the-go” lifestyle through modular layering and includes outerwear with premium stretch fabrics, goggles, a helmet and two pieces made from 100% recycled material. Overall, the collection strives to be dedicated to a more eco-friendly approach.

Stale Sandbech is a famed Norwegian snowboarder. He participated in the 2010, 2014, and 2018 Winter Olympics and won a silver medal in Men’s slopestyle in 2014 at the Sochi Olympics. With his Olympics debut in 2010, Sandbech became the youngest Norwegian Olympian in 82 years. His partnership with Oakley reflects his on the go lifestyle as he adventures and trains.

Oakley, Inc. based in California is a subsidiary of the Italian corporate giant Luxottica based in Milan. Found in 1975, it began in the garage of James Jannard with an initial investment of just $300. The company designs, develops, and manufactures sports performance equipment as well as lifestyle pieces, with the new snow collections falling into the former category. Yet, typical to Oakley the pieces retain a stylish flare.

Most famous for their sunglasses, Oakley also counts sports visors, ski/snowboard goggles, watches, apparel, backpacks, shoes, optical frames, and other accessories. A vast majority of the designs are completed in house, with Oakley currently holding an impressive number of patents, over 850.

7 Things to Know Before Using an Auto Transport Service

At some point in your lifetime, you’ll find yourself in need of auto transport services. You could be moving your car or motorcycle from one state to another. In other cases, you may need to ship your vehicle overseas for an extended vacation or work retreat. Instead of grappling with shipping yourself and coordinating tedious logistics, trust the experts at Guardian Auto Transport to oversee the process.

If this is the first time hiring an auto transport company to ship your vehicle, there are a few things you should know before scheduling your pickup date.

What insurance coverage is offered?

Ensure that the auto transport of your choice offers sufficient insurance coverage for the items you are shipping. Be wary of companies that offer low shipping costs and compromise on insurance. Your automobile is one of the most treasured possessions, and you won’t want to gamble with its safety.

Even though your car is insured, your current insurance plan may not be comprehensive enough when crossing state borders. Ensure your shipping company provides adequate insurance coverage that will protect your vehicle from unsightly chips or dents or other catastrophic roadside accidents.

For optimal safety, request a copy of their insurance documents to better understand the extent of coverage. If you aren’t satisfied with the current level, ask them to adjust it upwards. It will cost you a bit more, but it’s well worth the investment, as you won’t have to worry about financially-devastating damage that could potentially drain your bank account. When it comes to your automobile, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Do I need to prepare my car for shipment?

Are you seeking auto transport services to transport your car? Do you know how to prepare your vehicle before shipping? If you identify as a clueless first-timer, below are some vital pointers to keep in mind:

  • Wash your car: A clean car will make any scratches and scrapes visible to the owner. Once you’ve spotted these blemishes, you can document them accordingly.
  • Disable any alarm systems of your car
  • Empty personal belongings from the car
  • Leave minimal gas in the car
  • Lock your car
  • Inspect for any leaks or damages before shipping
  • Ensure it has a valid license

Adequate preparation expedites the shipping process tremendously and saves you from unnecessary delays. Some vehicle owners might be operating under a tight deadline, making timeliness all the more vital.

How much will it cost to ship?

The first question a majority of customers usually ask is: How much will it cost me to ship? Unfortunately, it’s not a simple yes-or-no question that representatives can answer in a few seconds. Instead, pricing shipping depends on a multitude of factors. Some factors bound to influence the total shipping cost include the following:

  • Size and weight of your vehicle
  • Distance to be covered
  • Time of the year (prices tend to increase in the summer due to increased demand)
  • Make and model of your car (Note: classic and luxurious vehicles tend to cost more)
  • Method used (whether open, enclosed, or expedited auto transport)

Is you shipping provider registered?

Safeguard yourself from scams. Ensure that the auto transport company of your choice is registered by the Department of Transportation. A registered company has an active USDOT and MC number. You can verify the validity of these numbers with the US Department of Transportation.

To prevent rip-offs, use caution when dealing with brokers. These professionals bear no responsibility for your shipment and will not feel obligated to maintain your vehicle’s pristine condition.

For those beginners, you’ll need to be able to distinguish between shipping companies and brokers. Unlike shipping companies, brokers don’t have a USDOT number. They only hold an MC number. Requesting their USDOT number is an easy way to differentiate between the two.

Do I need any documentation?

Always have the correct documentation in your possession when shipping your car. At a minimum, you’ll need to have your car insurance certificate and registration documents on-hand. To be on the safe side, confer with your auto transport company and ask about the paperwork you’ll need beforehand.

How long does it take to ship?

The duration of shipping depends on the distance covered and the method of transportation. Your auto transport company should advise you on the likely duration of shipping. A company that values its customers should promptly communicate when faced with unexpected delays for customer satisfaction guaranteed.

How do I make payment?

Consult with your shipping company and inquire about the modes of payment they accept. Some don’t accept checks. Other shipping providers don’t like cash, as it is risky and burdensome to the driver to carry on-the-go.

You may be wondering: Should I pay in full before shipping? The payment requirements and deposits will differ from one company to another. However, it’s advisable to choose a company that bills you only after dispatching a carrier for your shipping order. Remember, a trustworthy auto shipping provider will never charge you for a quote. If they request payment upfront, consider looking elsewhere for auto transportation services.

Final thoughts

Failure to complete the necessary steps associated with the shipping process may result in additional charges or costly damages. To guarantee quality customer service interactions and a seamless shipping process, scan through online reviews posted by former customers. These customer testimonials or negative reviews can point you in the direction of a reliable auto transport company.

Leopara Lighting System

Achieving the perfect lighting, especially on the go, can present its challenges. We’ve all been faced with such a dilemma: dingy lighting in a hotel room bathroom, making makeup or shaving nearly impossible. Or even just brightening up a space during travel for a quick touch up in the car. Luckily, a new product from Leopara solves these issues. Their patented technology features a 360° makeup lighting system that is compact, portable, and delivers bright, gorgeous lighting through wireless GlamPanels that attach and detach to any mirror.

The Leopara Lighting System comes with numerous impressive features, making it the perfect purchase for applying make-up flawlessly, or achieving the perfect shave. The four mirror-mountable LED GlamPanels illuminate even the darkest space as they are engineered with 5000k Daylight White LEDS that mimic natural light. This effort towards natural light provides the ideal color temperature for grooming, avoiding the troublesome overly white or yellow lights often present when traveling. Compact, wireless, and mirror-mountable, the easily portable Leopara Lighting System can travel mirror to mirror, car to house, on the plane, to your hotel, and anywhere else you need to go! It fits right into any bag in its custom case along with a 4-in-1 USB charging cord. Cases come in three colors: Onyx Chrome, Electric Pink, and Leopard Lux.

Crafted from a matte black, high-quality aluminum with a polycarbonate lens, the Leonara is lightweight, durable, sleek, and chic. To attach to any mirror, merely use the GlamPanels to create a vacuum seal. Mirrors aren’t the only option either – any non-porous surface will work with the Leonara Lighting System including other glasses and screens, making it all the more convenient.

In 360’s experience with the product, we found the convenience to be overwhelming. For those always on the go, like 360, the convenience of having excellent lighting in a moment, anywhere, truly came in handy. It proved excellent for grooming needs while traveling. Not only that, but it also became useful in unexpected ways. For those taking pictures on the go, achieving the perfect lighting in content can be challenging. Yet with the Leopara lighting system, pictures are suddenly illuminated by a clean, natural light. Selfies, pictures of landscape, or food pictures all benefited from being a bit more lit with Leopara just out of frame.

The Leopara Makeup Lighting System is the brainchild Rachel Vicknair, a global beauty educator, former pro dance, and film and TV talent who need a solution to a major problem she repeatedly faced when traveling: bad lighting! On her company’s aim, Vicknair states they are “on a mission to change the way the world gets glam by developing innovative tools and accessories that empower women and their beauty routines, rather than limit them.” Before founding Leopara, she worked extensively in the beauty, wellness, and biotech industries. Vicknair also advises FLIK, the Female Laboratory of Innovative Knowledge, a community for female founders and leaders to connect with apprentices in order to provide mentorship. The Leopara system is now available on Leopara.com and Amazon for purchase.
