About us


The Ripclear story begins in 2014, when co-founder Ryan Doherty destroyed his third snow goggle lens of the season from MT Bachelor rime ice.

So he contacted his best friend and product designer extraordinaire, co-founder Zach Hines.

They did a google/amazon search for something (anything!) that could prevent expensive goggles from scratching and nothing of the sort existed!

That launched Ripclear!

The biggest hurdle the two faced was developing a plastic that could fit on all surfaces while remaining optically clear.

There was nothing like it on the market, so the plastic had to be created from the ground up. After years of creating and testing plastics, they finally found the right design.

Once the plastic was created, Zach and Ryan brought their product to market. They started at trade shows, where the response was overwhelming.

They quickly realized that snow goggles were not the only optics whose protection needs were not being met, and that there was the whole world of optics and devices whose users were scratching their gear.
