I've been talking to the guy at DevTac, pricey mask. Very pricey indeed. Honestly, for the price, I could buy three or four good masks for paintball. It can't be that hard to find his fans and rig them up for paintball. And his video showing it work is great.

Years ago I made my own fans for my mask. I went out got some tiny CPU fans, ran those wires to a switch and then to a 9v that was attached in my mask next to my cheek. Switch it on lots of air moving and instantly fogless. And I only spent a few bucks on them.

CPU fans here as well. I wear glasses, can't do contacts. most days without fans I last 2-3 minutes before my glasses are fogged without the fans. The big problem with the cpu fans was getting them to stay put, but yeah, they worked far better than anythign i tried on the market.

I ran into that issue, I just ended up using twisty ties to hold the fans onto the top area of my mask so it blows down onto the lens. Doesnt look too bad, but always have to use a visor or the fans are visible.

I posted my review of the FlexR a few days ago and I think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread:

I might have solved my problem today. I have been waiting on an answer for eye inserts for my mask. Let's just say that's an untapped market for now. Anyway I learned a new thing today.

BIFOUCAL contact lenses. Yep I'm going in for a fitting this week

Later,

I thought so too. Appearantly I can. One doctor tells me one thing and another tells me something else. I'm going in for a fitting and see what happens. I guess they make bifocal contacts that are weighted and won't swim in your eye. I just found out Tues. my eye insurance pays for them. Ill let everyone know how they work. Will be nice, then I would only need a fan on humid days. This is also just a trial test. If not I'll end up bying my last option of mask insert lens.

Later,
Blackrain

Those do look nice.

I've taken to keeping a separate set of fanned goggles. If it's cold and rainy, I use them right off. The other end is at sunset around here when the humidity starts to condense on everything. When I've been playing 8 hours in one set, they never seem to dry out. At dinner break I'll pull out my fanned set and start off dry to avoid getting caught in the woods at night with fogged goggles; that's a pita. It's a nice break to have fresh foam too.
