Skiing Like Flying With Bat-Like Cape (Feb, 1940)
Skiing Like Flying With Bat-Like Cape
LOOKING more like a bat than a man, this skier is demonstrating the sail-cape. It serves alternately as a sail and as a brake, and in the former capacity is said to give the user the same sensation as a flight through space. To protect the skier from windburn, a hood envelops his entire head, leaving free only the mouth and nose.
