Unsure of the country of origin but I don't know what MESH goggles would protect against???

What about sniper? It similar to sniper net....
maybe they are motorcycle goggles so a bug doesn't hit you in the eye I don't know.
Why would a sniper want to blur his vision.........?
hm.. its not blured, its like shadow effect and also camuflage...
I like the bug theory better.........
Imagine a hornet hitting your eye going 45mph ouch!
Perhaps they could have been used by AFV/tank crews to protect the eyes against 'spalling' when a projectile hits the vehicle without penetrating but causes small pieces of metal interior plate to break off and fly around the compartment??
I know they used a similar idea in tanks during WW1.
