Inspired by some old foldable goggles discovered at an Army surplus store, the Mach Schnell Goggles are an inexpensive way to protect your peepers, and their scratch-resistant lenses make the foldaway eyewear extremely durable. Now there is a practical way to be sure you always have eye protection at hand.

The updated Mach Schnell Goggles are based on a 1942 design that helped to protect troops’ eyes from the ravages of windy weather as well as dust, snow and rain. They sell for about $15 and tuck neatly into a pocket or backpack.
