Screw Ring Goggles
I bought them for my Halloween costume but it didn't work out but I love the way the goggles look so I'm working on something else that I can do using Historical Emporium.

Fun item
These goggles are comfortable and fit my eyeholes nicely. The rear strap and size adjusters are seriously flawed, cheap plastic clips do not hold elastic tight and are unusable without some repair. If you are slightly crafty you can figure out a solution, mine work fine with two safety pins holding elastic together. The metal is thin and light in a good way, although I am careful not to bend the rings when changing lenses. My custom lenses fit perfectly in these goggles, magnets stick to 'em!

Goggles for every occasion
I love these goggles. They have a nice authentic feel to them and I've made them a part of multiple costume ideas so far. A quibble with the band though, it seems to be geared toward smaller heads (which I do not have) and the adjustment clips on the side don't hold the strap very tightly, so I did have it fly off at one point. Not a huge deal, as I stuck a pin in to keep everything together and they remained comfortable, but I found it worth mentioning.

Just what I wanted
I mean, who doesn't want some goggles? These are great. They ruin your peripheral vision, but that's to be expected. The lenses are lightly darkened, but not in any way that helps you deal with the sun; these don't stand in for sunglasses. They are a comforting aluminum that clinks metallically and and has some heft, while still being lightweight. The lenses are just a bit recessed past the edge of the frame (I'm not sure how they might unscrew; everything looks riveted together). Unless there's light shining in on your eyes, the lenses keep your eyes pretty shaded and hidden. I found the strap to be a little small, and the straps have a tendency to slip out of their...strap holder thing. Maybe I just have a big head. But it was easy to set them so that they were comfortable on my face and forehead. I want to wear them all the time.

A little pricey for what the are.
A little pricey for what the are. cheaper on ebay, but I bought them last minute & I needed them fast. one good thing is your fast shipping. They worked out ok but the straps kept coming loose until I tied a knot in them.

Great fit
These are actual working cutting goggles meant for use in the lab or workshop, not the plastic stage props sold elsewhere! Just blacken the inside with a marker to cut glare and you're ready to go.

Nice, but cheap strap.
Nice goggles, but the strap and the strap tighteners are notably chintzy. The goggles themselves are fantastic.

Now I look better
I searched around for goggles and while some were cheaper and not as decorative, I had the preference for the leather bridge and padded leather eyecups on this one. I made sure I got the clear replacement (plastic) lenses for the evening parties (don't forget this!). Perfect for my minion costume and future steampunk wear. I took one star off because the plastic clip that holds the adjustable elastic headstrap will easily slip off from all the constant tugging during wear. I wish there was a more secure way to keep this on. Losing that clip would be a party pooper.

Great Goggles Cheap Strap
The goggles are great looking and I love them...mostly. Get some better straps for these puppies (the ones that came with are flimsy and undependable) and they will be the perfect accent for any steampunk adventure.

High Quality
These goggles look amazing and feel lighter than you might expect. I'm not sure that my husband should be using them as protective goggles while he does his real "mad science" but he does. Highly recommended.

a nice accessory
These goggles are well padded and comfortable to wear, they seem well constructed too. The lenses are easily changed out, but secure when screwed down. The elastic band they came with could stand to be a little longer, it kept pulling out of the buckles. I replaced it with a strip of upholstery leather, now they stay on fine. All in all, I am pleased with them.

This Googles will change your view of the world.
My steam punk group, TEOS (Temporal Entities of Syracuse), had a booth at a local horror convention. We were acting as staff and promoting our group. I wore the Screw Ring Goggles [002684] and Mad Scientist Howie Lab Coat - Red [004617]. I got tons of compliments and many people asked to have their photo with me.

Safety first on the road. These goggles make that historical impression, whether one is an early motorist or, as I suspect, when worn with the aviator's helmet, a barnstormer

had to adjust a bit....
googles are as described, but are quite wide so they didn't seal around the eyes well. Discovered that the thick gauge wire across the nose is adjustable, so they fit fine now.

Not so much...
These things LOOK super cool... They do not hold up. 4 sets were purchased at the same time and 4 sets were broken/fell apart. 3 were apart when they arrived. The issue is the thin wire frame holding in the glass. It is thin and when it bends to contour the face, the glass falls out as it is one frame piece. This gets some points for looks but I would stay away from this if you are looking for quality. Go with the better screw type goggles for better quality (and comfort).

Great look...kinda fragile.
We, its nothing i cant repair...but the little wire thingy that acts as the should really be something less feels like metal similar to a paper clip. But....its easy to fix if you bend it weird with small not too worried....but they should be treated carefully...But the bendy bridge makes it so you can custom fit it to your face pro and con on that....better metal is all. On the other hand...they add some amazing sexy to your outfits. outstanding look with the reproduction angle. Perfect for any dressy event! :)

Great goggles
These goggles were bought as part of a Plague Doctor outfit for Halloween. I was looking for something that was sort of not-too-labcoat and not-too-WorldWar, and these were perfect. The one issue is they have no ventilation, but a drill fixes that. I'll likely buy a second pair just to wear in my Miata. :PConstruction-wise, very durable, though I didn't like the rubber head band, and replaces it with an elastic band (very easy). The lenses themselves are held in by a sort of spring-steel construct that holds them in with three little claws. The whole spring steel assembly is the same that forms the bridge. It's thin and floppy, but it's spring steel, and it's not going anywhere.

I ordered these for use in a theatrical production and they were great! The director loved them and they looked fabulous on stage as well as being comfortable for the actor to wear.Thanks!

Not terrible at all
Pretty good goggles. They seemd a littlewonky at first, but after surviving my 1yr old daughter trying to put them on and off my face they definately earned their merrit. If you're going for steampunk these are the way to go. Durable and definately giving the wearer no less than a +3 to his/her charisma.

Cheap Plastic
This was my first order with HE, and I guess for the price I was expecting the goggles to be a little more durable and not feel so much like a toy you would get out of a gumball machine. Although we won't be "using" these goggles, I just felt a little disappointed in the quality.

The goggles are exactly what I was looking for and very comfortable. My only critique would be to suggest a metal framed pair as an option. I would gladly pay for them.

I am very happy with the Glacier Googles, however, to use a euphemism, they seem a little "lightweight" (which would likely be an asset were I actually hiking glaciers and weight was a critical factor), but as a fun tooling around pair of googles it just seems like they could be a little more "beefy". I would not let this minor criticism prevent you from enjoying these yourself.

Costume Trash
These so called Glacier Goggles wouldn't serve you in any functional manner whatsoever except perhaps as a costume prop. They are poorly made, poorer quality, and misrepresented. If I hadn't already spent good money to buy and have them delivered, I would send them back with a nasty gram. As it stands, I will not waste more good money on this trash. I will, however, spend some time warning the unsuspecting public via blog about Historical Emporium's misrepresentation of this expensive but useless product. David Williamson

When my daughter saw these, she was impressed by their quality - for the same price, they were better than a pair she'd purchased the week before at a convention. I love the dark lenses - great for winter and my sensitivity to outdoor light.

I've had alot of fun with the goggles since purchasing them. I took them with me to visit my grandchildren and they both wore them. My grandson put them on in a resturant and wore them the whole meal. Several people stop and made coments about how cool he looked. Alot of fun thank you. I haven't problems with them an they fit well.

not so fussed with the glacier goggles
I bought this in addition to another pair of goggles, only because I thought they were really cool. However, it turned out that the glass in both lenses was scratched and no matter which way you put them on, they looked upside down. The strap wasn't of the best quality either. Disappointed.

Loving these goggles
These goggles do exactly as I wanted to use them for! To repel wind and glare.

The goggles are comfy and really cool looking! I wear them around my neck every day and it's the perfect addition to my steampunk outfit. The only problem is that the strap over the nose stretches out really easily.

Like sunglasses, but stylish
I love these goggles, they were a great value and very comfortable to wear. I wear them on an everyday basis as sunglasses, sunglasses that instantly identify me as the coolest person in the area. The only thing I would say to someone thinking about buying them is to remember that they restrict your peripheral vision, so remember not to wear them over your eyes while driving or crossing streets.

Perfect with Aviator Helmet
These goggles are super cool! Wore them with the leather aviator helmet in brown that I also purchased to complete my Amelia Earhart costume. I buffed the espresso brown helmet with a light Italian leather polish so it perfectly matched my leather jacket, and also the goggles. Perfect! Very high quality products - I will have forever. All evening I had people asking me about my costume, they were very impressed. Thank you Historical Emporium - your products are very well made, not party store "stuff" and that contributes so much to authenticity. I will purchase other items in the future.
