These are Oakley A Frame goggles that I bought last year and never used. Thought I would try skiing but never did. Don't have the box but I do have the receipt from REI. Paid 110+tax but selling them for $80 shipped. These have the persimmon lense which according to the guy at REI are the best because they work great for both bright and gloomy days, eliminating the need to change out lenses. These goggles are like new in flawless condition. Thanks for looking. Price droppped to $75 shipped.

The weather's too dull here in Britain or I'd be interested, but eye protection is essential for preppers in hot sunny places or where the sun reflects off snow.
African explorers often used to go down with eye problems due to the bright sun and dust because they never wore eye protection. John Speke got it and wrote- "We finally reached the lake but I was unable to see it".
And some polar explorers got snow blindness.
You can also get "sand blindness" in the desert from the glare of the sand.
Although very painful, the conditions usually clear up after a few days, during which time you have to wear a blindfold to rest the eyes and the zombs will have you for breakfast..;)
