Review: I have bought this one used fan in good condition for reasonable prince (8$) from friend who finished with paintball, because I wound testet "Profi-fan" (I have used cheap single lens mask with small PC fan and it works well). I wear glasses so a fan is worth. But this thing makes nothing - lens still fogging, its makes no perceptible difference when the fan is on or off... and its so loud, that person who wearing it can hard get to hear what's going on around.

Maybe others have better experiences... bud my JT Vortex fan goes for nothing. I really know not why all others here are excited with this... but I guess when you have good mask with thermal lenses and you not wear glasses, you simply do not have a need of fan... and this fan looks good on mask and gives you some additional moral support :-).
Conclusion: JT has a good idea here, but the fan is just way too small and weak. And loud. Tiny engine powered with one AAA is not up to do his work, especially when is placed so that so the mask body sightly disturb its air flow.

My recommendation: make our own fan from small 12V PC (Notebook) fan and 9V cell - its not so loud, works sightly better, is much cheaper and you can adapt it better on your mask.
