This is a protector to protect the hearing and vision of people who work in noise for long periods of time (like carpenters and weeders). They can use it and slide off glasses when needed. Considering the communication between workers, the gap can be opened by rotating and pressing, so that the voice of the other party can be heard clearly, and the gap can also be narrowed for protection, so there is no need to remove the earmuffs completely. The glasses can change color according to the intensity of ultraviolet rays, reduce the transmission of light, and protect the vision of outdoor workers.
