Carlsbad, CA (November 21, 2013) – Dragon’s game-changing H2O Floatable Collection has been nominated by the Surf Industry Manufacturing Association (SIMA) for the Accessory Product of the Year for the 2013 SIMA Image Awards.

Created to support your active lifestyle in and around the water, the Dragon H20 Floatable Collection employs a specially formulated injected frame that stays afloat in the ocean, pool, or lake-meaning you’ll never lose your favorite shades in the water again. The H20 Floatable Collection includes The Jam, The Shawn Watson Signature Jam, Vantage, Double Dos, and the Chrome 2 frames.

Worn by world-renowned big-wave surfer and 2013 Billabong XXL Award winner Shane Dorian, Dragon’s Floatable Collection is performance-tested and water ready.

“The Floatable sunglasses are super functional,” says Shane Dorian. “For people who spend our lives around the ocean-surfing, fishing, boating, stand-up paddling or anything else that’s active-knowing you won’t lose your favorite pair of shades if you drop them in the water is key.”

Constructed from a durable, lightweight injected frame, all H20 Floatable shades come standardized with Dragon’s top-level Performance Polar ®, custom water-resistant rubber logos on the outer temple, nylon lenses, hydrophobic, and oleophobic coatings, offer 100% UV protection and include rubber nose pads and temple tips for performance fit on select models.

Look for an expanded line of Dragon’s H20 Collection coming out in 2014 at all core surf locations. For more information or to purchase a pair of Dragon H20 Floatable sunglasses go to Dragonalliance.com.
