Burning Man

21 Aug

Burning Man is a little over a week away. If you’ve been down to Black Rock City before, you’ll know how crucial it is to have good eye protection. Whether your personal needs are to protect your eyes from harsh glare and UV rays, wind and sandstorms, or just to let your…erm… freak flag fly, Belmont Army has a wide variety of vintage military goggles and sunglasses to help you out.

These shaded Swiss motorcycle goggles come in a durable tin carrying case thats kinda retro and old fashioned and kinda bad ass

These rubber German goggles have kind of a mad scientist/Dr. Strangelove vibe to them, but the adjustable strap should keep them flush against your face and and keep your eyes safe when the wind starts kicking up sand

These hinged, leather Chinese mountain troop goggles have tinted lenses on the front and side so you can check out all the cool machines and art and naked people in your periphery without looking risking whiplash or looking like a sleazoid

You can find all these on the third floor, along with Aviator shades and a wide variety of gas masks, canteens, sleeping pads, duffle bags, knives, ponchos, multi-tools, and camping goods to keep you safe and comfortable on the playa. Check out the 4th floor for Incognito sunglasses, including thick framed, UV-protected clear Buddy Holly glasses, highway patrol shades, Bono-style bugeye shades, weird pointy spangly sunglasses that look like a mix between a sexy librarian and a John Waters’ movie drag queen, along with all sorts of vintage mens and womens items you can add to your costume repertoir.
