The demanding conditions and perpetual sunlight and UV we faced in the Arctic on our 2005 'Ocean Frontiers 1000 Hour Day' Expedition more than met their match with our stylish Dirty Dog eyewear, and so we're proud to be taking Dirty Dog north again this time around in 2008.
Developed from the discovery of 'TR90' - A lightweight and virtually unbreakable compound, Dirty Dog sunnies and masks are in demand from successful athletes as a brand that can be relied on to perform in extreme conditions. Out on the land we lived in either Dirty Dog sunnies, or snow goggles. Now back at home and out on the streets, Clark and Chris are both still stylin' in Dirty Dog eyewear.
In July 2005, two young Aussies Chris Bray and Clark Carter plunged inside the Arctic Circle to travel unsupported across Victoria Island, the world's ninth largest and largely unexplored island. After 58 days of hauling, paddling and dragging 250kgs of gear behind them in their home-made aluminium kayaks with fold-down wheels, they were only 1/3 the way across! It was such an incredible adventure though - including wolves, polar bears, artefacts, blizzards and unseen landscapes - that they vowed to return. After two years of prep, The iiNet 1000 Hour Day Expedition set of in 2008, and finished what they started.
