In this blog I will write about traditional snow goggles, and in the next blog, I will post a video on how to make them in the wilderness.
Each pair of snow goggles is made to fit whomever they were made for. Typically a fine piece of wood or ivory would be used. The piece would be wide enough to reach the wearer's temples. Then a slight curve would be applied onto the "mask" of the goggles, so they would fit around their face more comfortably. Then they would coordinate where the eyes would be at, and make slits approximately an inch and a half in length, and a few centimeters in height. Then a strap of braided sinew, or some string would be used to securely fasten it around the wearers head.
