These glasses were made for use with open motorcars, motorcycles and airplanes. The most notable design feature are the amazing steel mesh side blinkers, and they rotate on hinges to contour closely to the face to give you added protection on the sides. These safety goggles are original, not a reproduction. The ear wires or bows are very curly. They were new in the box, when I got them, but have now lost the box. Perfect for your new pair of glasses, just pop your prescription in.
