ELECTRIC MUDSLINGER honored by OUTSIDE Gear of the Year Awards 2015
This year, the OUTSIDE team of adventure sports experts hit the trails on foot and on wheels, and took to rivers and lakes around the country to put all the newest shoes, bikes, boats, fitness apparel, accessories and gadgets to the test.
The Summer Buyer’s Guide offers readers everything they learned from field-testing hundreds of products, making it the top resource for everyone from seasoned adventurers to venturing out for the first time. Reviews are organized by sport and activity, and include the ideal setting or experience level for each product, as well as tips for getting the most out of each gear pick. Only the best items on the market are featured in the guide.
“We at Electric are extremely honored to have the Mudslinger selected as best of class for 2015 by Outside. We share their passion for living an active lifestyle and have worked to create a sunglass that not only functions seamlessly and feels comfortable, but also provides industry leading clarity and protection at an amazing price. The Mudslinger is the second release moving toward Electric’s upcoming launch of the ‘S-line’, proving that one doesn’t have to sacrifice style to wear product that performs,” commented Electric’s CEO Eric Crane.
“The innovations in the field of adventure and outdoor gear never cease to amaze us,” says OUTSIDE Buyer’s Guide editor Sam Moulton. “Our team of gear experts had plenty of difficult choices to make in putting together the Summer Buyer’s Guide this year, but after testing everything from hiking packs and running shoes to wearable tech and commuter bikes, we hand-picked the very best 350 products, including the fourteen very top performers that received our coveted Gear of the Year award. Once again, the issue is packed with everything you need for summer fun and adventure.”
The Mudslinger by Electric is a purpose built performance sunglass with superior coverage and lightweight construction. This Italian made mold injected grilamid frame features ELECTRIC’s innovative double action hinge system and 8 base melanin infused polycarbonate lenses standard.
