Each one of the two guiding mechanisms is further provided with a guiding track arrangement which comprises a first track portion and a second track portion. The first slider slidingly engages the first track portion while the second slider slidingly engages the second track portion. The pre-determined trajectory extends from a retracted position where the visor is substantially proximate a front portion of the shell and substantially outside a field of view of the wearer to a deployed position where the visor is substantially below the frontal lower edge and within the field of view of the wearer, and further towards a rear portion of the helmet to a resting position aft of the deployed position. In use, the face seal, which is located at a lower portion of the visor, is operative to substantially perpendicularly contact a face of the wearer at a position between the deployed position and the resting position.07-26-2012
20130117899Slip-Over Light Blocking Sleep Mask - This invention describes a slip-over sleep mask, having a tubular-shaped body consisting of a soft cloth or fabric material, which is to be used to effectively block out any light from entering a person's eyes while sleeping. The sleep mask is to be slipped over and worn around a person's head, as one piece, covering the eyes and ears. Permanently attached to the inside lower frontal portion of said tubular-shaped body is a separate ruffled or pleated piece of soft cloth or fabric material. This attached material fills in any gaps of space that exist in the areas between the eyes and nose of a person's face which would otherwise allow for any unwanted light to enter inward. The one piece, slip-over design of the sleep mask stretches and clings naturally to a person's face, thus preventing any movement or shifting of itself during sleep.05-16-2013
