The fugliest sunglasses in the universe. Wear these and you’ll see the world as it is - magnificent and horrible. If you can find something more hideous, send us a pic, or we won’t believe you. This design is familiar already from wartime Germany but for some cosmic reason, Dutch folks wanted to make these even after the war.

Features

The lenses are manufactured from some sort of a flexible 70s brown plastic, and the frame is flexible something. The flaps on the side are made from metal mesh. A rubber band keeps these firmly in place. These can be folded very flat, so if you get enough of these for your whole clan, warehousing will be quite easy peasy.

WTF are these?

Quite similar goggles were used by e.g. German WWII motorized troops. Originally these were made to protect you from the wind, sun, and also some dust. Although the mesh on the side will let some dust through. The WWII glasses often had lenses instead of mesh. These aren’t usable for airsoft, paintball, welding, slaying dragons, and other heavy-duty stuff.

What can you do with these today? Lots of stuff! Put these on and your eyesight is blurred but your sixth sense is activated. Like all sensible folks, you have always wanted to know what the world looks like from inside of a full whisky bottle. Now, these simulate that quite well. When you are indoors and wear these, the whole world turns warm, brown, and fuzzy.

However, outdoors on a sunny day you will experience something mind-blowing. The sky explodes in such a glorious post-apocalyptic glow that you can never get with any chemicals. If you have always wanted to star in Fear and Loathing in Alabama, these are your sunglasses. Or flip them upside down and you’re ready for a roller disco or Elton John concert.

In case your kid wants virtual glasses but you can't afford them, buy these. They will make the world so surreal that the virtual world is a kiddie ride in a crapmusement park in comparison.

Condition

Dutch military surplus from somewhere around the Cold War. Unissued or very little used. In other words, in very good condition.

These snow goggles were also British issue since at least as far back as the late 1940s, used by those such as the British Antarctic Survey and soldiers undergoing winter warfare training in Norway.
The lenses are made from celluloid, which makes the goggles good protection from the effects of sun glare on snow covered plateaux, glaciers, ice shelves etc.
They fold flat, so can be carried in the top right hand pocket of the Smock Combat Windproof Arctic when not worn.
In later years ski goggles were issued, but these goggles are a useful back up pair which don't take up much space.
