KIT OF THE WEEK JULBO TITAN OTG SKI GOGGLES Smart-thinking Julbo have designed their TITAN OTG ski goggles with a photochromic lens.
This means that when the weather and light changes so will the darkness of the lens.
The lens is also ventilated for high levels of air flow and boasts an anti-fog coating.
OTG means the goggles will fit Over The Glasses, if you need to wear ordinary spectacles to see where you are skiing. Other features include a silicone strap for good grip on a helmet.
The Julbo TITAN OTG ski goggles are priced around PS100.

BADGERS' PASTE FOR ADVENTURE BADGERS GO NUTS Peanut butter is being used to guide badgers through gates in a fence near new native woodland in Edinburgh.
It's a treat for badgers and will help them establish trails in Centenary Wood, which is cared for by Woodland Trust Scotland.
Site manager Russell Jobson said: "The gates are specially designed for badgers to push through instead of digging under the fence wire.
"Ultimately the woodland will benefit a wide range of wildlife including badgers, barn owls and bats. We need to maintain the fence to stop hares and rabbits damaging young trees."
