Products Used:
Marker Setup: A5 w/E-Grip, flatline, red dot, drop forward, cammo'ed, & modified action (#1 gun) or;
98C, w/resp trigger, expansion, modified flatline, turbo-hopper, stock (cuctom SNIPER), cammo'ed, & modified action, (heavy backup gun) or;
98C w/16" CMI barrel, turbo-hopper, cammo'ed (light weight - long range gun)
Strengths: NOTHING - hard to mount, super difficult to replace batteries, ultra low air flow
Weaknesses: LOUD - very low air flow - needs mask mod. to improve
Review: This fan is the same as the JT just that both eyes get some very little air flow. It still sucks your hot moist forehead/face air and blows it onto your glasses/mask lens. You got to take your mask a part everytime you need to change the battery. If you wear contact lens it might help your inside mask face plate but forget it if you wear glasses!!! The fan CFM is way to low for any practical use with glasses.

I'm the old man x-Nam Vet and Sr. Engineer. All the current fan system that fit above the face mask are flawed as they take in your hot moist body heat and blow it upon my glasses & mask lens. They are all "LOUD" killing stealth sniper hearing/OPs. It is usually HOT/humid where I play and no matter what I do I'm plagued with severe mask/glasses condensation. No, low air volume fan works especially this one. All current fan systems stink as I suspect the designers do not where glasses just like I've found with mask makers.
Conclusion: Don't buy it you will be disappointed - but the best of any on the market today! They need to place the fan behind the users head (or on the belt - better) and use plastic >0.5" air-duct tubes attached to the head straps (to both sides) of the mask.This will remove most all the noise from near the face/ears. But you do not want to increase the rear weight on the head strap pulling the mask out of place on the users head. So place the battery in a belt pouch (allows for bigger 12V type battery) with an easy access 100% speep/powerd control (like a blower voltage potentiometer). Use a 2.5-3" BLOWER not a 1" mini-fan that has NO CFM - get >10CFM into the mask to each eye.

You crazy!
That would be tight, though. Central air conditioning in your goggles.
