Bogner sportswear is worn by James Bond in several Bond films. The Bogner brand was founded by Willy Borgner Sr., and continued by his son, alpine ski racer Willy Bogner Jr. Currently the Bogner brand offers Ski and Golf clothes and accessories.

Willy Bogner Jr. has worked as a cameraman in several James Bond films from the 1960s through to the 1980s, specifically On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1967), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), For Your Eyes Only (1981) and A View to a Kill (1985) for which he won the Bambi Award in 1985 and the Bavarian Film Award, Special Prize, in 1986.

George Lazenby wears a blue Bogner suit in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Roger Moore wears Bogner ski wear, as do many other characters in skiing scenes. Bond wears a yellow Bogner suit in the famous opening sequence for The Spy Who Loved Me, when Bond eventually jumps of the cliff with his Union Jack parachute.

In For Your Eyes Only, Bond wears a blue Bogner ski jacket, Bogner pants and Bogner gloves in most of the scenes in Cortina D'Ampezzo. He wears a pair of black Pierre Cardin 30/7 goggles to complete this outfit. Bibi Dahl (Lynn-Holly Johnson) wears a red Bogner ski suit with black 'western' hat. The clothes can be recognized by the B logo on the zipper, and Bibi's suit also features a large B logo on the belt. A good photo of Bond wearing the blue Bogner jacket and Bibi wearing the red Bogner ski-suit can be found in the James Bond Encyclopedia on pages 107 and 143. Kristatos's henchman and olympic athlete Erich Kriegler (John Wyman) also wears a Bogner suit, black with green stripes.

In the pre-title sequence of A View to a Kill, another ski-scene, Bond wears a completely white Bogner outfit, including a jacket with a fur hood, thermal shirt with zipper and gloves.
