German Dust Goggles
These military surplus goggles are great for protection from dust and other airborne particulates as well as the sun and wind. These goggles were originally designed for and used by service men and women enlisted in the German heer, or army, which is one of the five service branches that makes up the Bundeswehr, or unified armed forces of Germany. Though we cannot confirm the issuance of our German dust goggles, each pair appears to remain unissued. As such, they all remain in excellent condition, free from use and the typical wear that hampers the practicality of many pieces of military surplus equipment. And because they were never issued, you can count on these goggles to provide years of protection while cruising on the boulevard or undertaking your next home improvement project.
Featuring a unique design that lends itself well to concealment and easy transportation, the German dust goggles are pieces of field gear that were originally issued to German soldiers for protection from dust, wind and the sun. As you can imagine, combat operations undertaken by military forces often take place in environments that offer less-than-ideal conditions, which may present hazards to the eyes. The use of these goggles was intended to reduce those hazards by presenting a tinted barrier that blocks out wind and the dust and debris it carries as well as the harmful UV rays emitted by the sun. Each pair of German dust goggles boasts a simple folding design that allows them to be safely stowed in the included olive drab vinyl carrying case, which measures approximately 4 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. The goggles themselves feature a soft velvet material that borders the tinted lens, as well as an adjustable elastic headband that offers a comfortable fit.
