BETTER known perhaps for their extensive and reasonably priced motor and flying clothing, the well known firm of S. Lewis of 27, Carburton Street, London, W.1., are marketing a special type of racing goggles embodying some useful features. Large flat safetyglass lenses are used, and each eye-piece is made of soft rubber and fits the face snugly. They are ventilated by means of adjustable.air-slides which prevent steaming without causing draughts. The nosepiece is adjustable, allowing the goggles to take their correct position however close together or wide apart the eyes of the wearer. The elastic headband is substantial and cannot come unhooked from the frame. The goggles cost 30s. with the standard type safety glass and an extra 2s. for Triplex lenses. A new
model suitable for flying, in which the frame is surrounded by a mask, will shortly be introduced.
For those who prefer visors, these are also available, and the latest pattern has a pocket into which the peak of the helmet fits. This holds it immovably, without making it difficult to remove, should one want to use goggles instead.
