JT Flex 8 (yes, another goggle review)
Another week, another goggle review. JT Flex 8's this time.
I really liked these.
-Good, inexpensive, widely available thermal lens
-Very high quality JT foam
-Good chin coverage
-Built-in brow shield
-Hard ear protection
-Nice tight profile, without being too tight
-Just $53 new, great value
-Option of full head coverage
-Bunch of color options
-All one piece, less interchangeability
-PITA lens change
-Not as breathable as proflex or e-flex
-Poor ear coverage
-Uncomfortable around the ears (for me)
-No all black option
-Good-but-not-great jawline coverage
-Chin strap; I don't care for it, but other people might like it.
Overall, I thought these were pretty great. The only real gripe I have is the ears, which I plan to fix by putting a set of the larger soft ears underneath these. That will make everything more comfortable, and improve the ear and upper jaw coverage. With that modification, these will probably be my new mask. The jawline coverage isn't as good as it could be, but coming from i4's, it's a considerable improvement, so I can't really complain about that, can I? At $53 new, it's really hard to not like these, excellent mask.
