It's the Year of the TIGER! Your best Bombers based on your Chinese zodiac
Happy Chinese New Year, Bomb Squad!
Now that it's February 1st, we can officially celebrate the new year in style... the Year of the Tiger, to be exact!
If you don't already know, the Chinese zodiac is represented by 12 zodiac animals, each with its own reputed attributes. The Chinese zodiac animals all have their own astrological and cultural meanings and it’s believed that people born in a given year have similar personalities of that year’s animals. (And seriously, it gets kinda spooky how accurate they are!)
The 12 animals that are represented in the Chinese new year are rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. 2022 is a year of the Tiger (and you know that makes us big fans) and while we could just tell you to stock up on TIGER Bombs, we’re taking it a step further and breaking down the best Bombers for you based on your Chinese zodiac sign!
The Tiger 🐅
Ah, the year of the tiger. This year to be exact! If your Chinese zodiac sign as a tiger then you are courageous, assertive, and a natural leader. And we'd be remiss to recommend our tigers anything but the TIGER Bomb! These frames not only come in several different styles but are also part of our Safety Collection, which means they go with any outfit AND are ANSI Z87+ certified! Your lucky numbers are 1, 3, and 4 and your lucky colors are blue, gray and orange. We carry all of those colors in the TIGER Bomb but our favorite (for a natural stand-out leader) is the orange-tinted polarized red mirror.
The Rat 🐀
You are quick-witted, resourceful, versatile, and kind—Your lucky numbers are 2 and 3 and your lucky colors are blue, green, and gold. Wanna know something even luckier? Our polarized BOOGIE Bombs come in blue and green, and (shhhhh) we're working on gold lenses for a number of upcoming styles. (That's a secret though -- oops!) These frames have been the number one seller for quite some time and for good reason too!
The Ox 🐂
You are diligent, dependable, strong, and determined. You know you can accomplish anything as long as you set your mind to it, which makes you a perfect match for our MEGA Bombs. These are the type of ANSI Z87+ Certified Safety lenses you can depend on, not to mention the grey foam on the inside to ensure you never lose them in water. Your lucky numbers are 1 and 4 and your lucky colors are white, yellow, and green. Good thing the MEGA Safety Frames are available with yellow lenses 😉.
The Rabbit 🐇
Rabbits are quiet, elegant, kind, and responsible. You’re calculated and know when and when not to take risks: and since you'll never take a risk on eye protection, we recommend the CLUTCH. These frames are ANSI Z87+ Certified when worn with side shields, or you can pop off the shields for a classic sunglass look. Your lucky numbers are 3, 4 and 6 and your lucky colors are red, pink, purple and blue. The Ice Blue Mirror Polarized CLUTCH is the perfect pair for you!
The Dragon 🐉
You're confident, intelligent, and enthusiastic. You don’t need to show off because your style because you let your style speak for itself. Our AHI Bomb is perfect for your level of confidence. Your lucky numbers are 1, 6, and 7 and your lucky colors are gold, silver, and white. And wouldn’t you know it—the AHI Frames come in a Polarized Silver Mirror Crystal color just for you!
The Snake 🐍
You're enigmatic, intelligent, and wise. You don’t follow trends—you start them. And there's no trend-setter like our BUZZ Bomb. These flat top visor ANSI Z87+ Certified safety sunglasses with side shields are available in polarized and non-polarized for any level of customized protection you need. Your lucky numbers are 2, 8, and 9 and your lucky colors are black, red ,and yellow. The BUZZ Bomb Safety in Smoke is just the look for you (or you can buy 2, 8, or 9 pairs... we won't judge).
The Horse 🐎
If your Chinese zodiac sign is a horse then you are animated, active, and energetic! This makes the all-new MAGNUM a perfect match for you. These babies were meant to turn heads—just like your personality! Your lucky numbers are 2, 3, and 7 and you’ll want that many pairs of these frames -- including the two in your lucky colors yellow and green 😉.
The Goat 🐐
You're calm, gentle and sympathetic. You’re most likely the one in the group to make level-headed decisions and when you speak, people listen. (They also listen when you're screaming, but we don't judge.) The HUB Safety Frames give off the same authority. Your lucky numbers are 2 and 7 and your lucky colors are brown, red, and purple. Pick up some tortoise frames and a bright lens color to make a statement -- without saying too much, of course.
The Monkey 🐒
Similar to a monkey, you’re sharp, smart, and curious. You don’t see the world as black and white, but rather as an array of colors. People might think you’re a jokester but they should be careful because you're smarter than you look... just like our STINK Bombs! The name might make you laugh but these frames are ANSI Z87+ Certified with 100% UVA and UVB protections. Your lucky numbers are 4 and 9 and your lucky colors are white, blue, and gold. And you know we’ve personally selected the STINK Safety Light Blue frames just for you.
The Rooster 🐓
You're observant, hardworking, and courageous. You work hard towards your goals and push others around to work hard too. Similar to the REGGIE Bomb Frames (which were our FIRST rimless ANSI Z87+ Certified and slip-free foam-lined style), you're a hard worker, but you're not afraid to make a statement. 5, 7, and 8 are your lucky numbers and your lucky colors are gold, brown, and yellow. If you’re a rooster—we recommend going with the REGGIE Safety Polarized Brown Tortoise.
The Dog 🐕
If your Chinese zodiac sign is a dog then you are lovely, honest, and prudent. (Although who in the Bomber community ISN'T lovely?) You don’t stray from tradition and like to keep it classy. Just like our SMART Bombs, which were built for a sporty and contemporary look engineered to keep up with an active lifestyle. These frames come in a Polarized Pink/Purple Mirror lens style -- perfect for you, with the lucky color purple! If purple's not your favorite, you've also got red and green, along with lucky numbers 3, 4, and 9.
The Pig 🐷
You're compassionate, generous, and diligent. Your kind heart is what makes everyone gravitate towards you. Your sense of humor and personality makes you the most popular one in the room. To put it simply—you’re just cool, bruh. Much like our MANA Frames, named for one of the coolest dudes we know. Your lucky numbers are 2, 5, and 8 and your lucky colors are yellow, gray, and gold. Be the coolest person in the room with the coolest glasses with the MANA Safety Yellow frames -- it doesn't hurt that they'll keep you safe while you rock the style!
Wherever the Year of the Tiger may take you, we hope you pick up some Bomber Eyewear along the way. Don't forget to strut your stuff on Instagram (@bombereyewear) -- or, y'know, roar it.
