Goggle Question

I have Flakjak goggles. These work very, very well in terms of not fogging up as I am running, jumping, and tearing through brush during events. However, I am looking for something more low profile and at the same time will not fog up on me to wear under my operator hats. I know that Bolle makes great goggles and I've heard good things about Bullet Ant's, does anyone have any experience with these brands? Or can anyone refer me to a brand that they've used and are pleased with?

Thanks,
Mav

What a lot of people wear are ESS turbofans.

There expensive but are worth every penny.

The Turbofans seem pricey, but are worth every penny in the long run. I've had mine about a year and a half and have never had a fogging problem, not in heat, cold or high humidity. They are the best money I've ever spent on gear.

ESS advancer V12's have become popular among my team and people I play with. I personally have little troubles with fogging with them. To the best of my knowledge, Bolle no longer produces their tactical goggles.

I've been lucky enough to use Regular ESS Goggles with Thermal Lenses. They don't produce these type of lenses anymore, so your chances of finding them are slim to none. However I've been fog free ever since I switched to these types of lenses, no fogging what so ever

As they have all said. ESS turbofans, pricy, but worth it. But there are alternatives, like getting fans for goggles. Here's a thread from a while ago about Scott brand Fans for goggles: http://www.airsoftohio.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=29076

I believe ESS still makes thermal lenses, they just won't sell them to airsoft stores anymore.

According to the ESS Rep, I got the last set of Smoked Thermals on the Striker Series Goggles, you might want to jump on it

Hi, you may try Pinlock anti fog lenses for Revision goggles or for ESS goggles!

Please check the thread date. Pretty sure that if he doesn't have goggles by now, he's been blinded.
