Goggles are standard equipment for alpine journeys, but how can you keep them from breaking in your pack?
Like this: Get a pair of two-liter soft-drink bottles and chop off the spout ends, creating two cylinders. Put the goggles inside, and slide one container over the other to make a reasonably solid but very light container. The bottles can double as cups or bowls, but do your dishes, or you’ll get Top Ramen all over your lenses!
