"Blinders can combat a multitude of different problems you may encounter on the range or trap line. Side blinders keep wind and debris from bothering your eyes, help stop the glare from creeping into your vision, and can keep you focused on a specific direction. There are drawbacks, however. Your peripheral vision is essentially non-existent when dawning on side blinders. If you are someone who frequently traps shoots or are in events where situational awareness is key, then wearing a pair would not do much to help you reach your full potential."
