My new/old snow goggles have arrived.
The original lenses were cracked and de-laminated so I’ve swapped them out for some acrylic ones. Brushed up the rims a bit and they are good for another few decades I reckon.

They came in a dinky little tin as well.

Not sure how old there are but the laminated filter glass probably puts them over 60 years of age.

Excellent stuff, they look great goodjob

Out fo interest, did they perform as well as modern goggles? What's the main difference between something that old and a modern version? If there isn't any practical difference just aesthetics?

In fairness, the modern goggles have a better field of view and cover more of the face in extreme conditions. I will still carry a modern pair but they will probably stay in my pack for most of the time.

These are lighter and I think more comfortable. Very subjective thing that.
