Review: I decided i needed a change from my trusty JT Proflexs...Not impressed with the I3 Pro...

Well, I'll start with the good things about the mask. The looks. This mask is of the best looking masks out as of now, with the wide range of colors, it hard not to find one you like. Next is how extremely comfortable these goggles are. These are very nice to wear, even though all I have to compare it to is my proflex. Finally there is the HD lens. This lens has the dark amber fade which dampers the sun, but, isn't too dark in the shade.

Now for the bad. I expected better for $100. The first day I had these at the field, I put them on for 5 min and they were already fogging. It was about 90 with 80-90% humidity. After the first game I couldn't even see out of them. This to me is the most important point of all...If you cant see, you cant play...After the day at the field I took them home and proceeded to try to take the lens out...I struggled with this for over 20 mins. And then spent another 20 trying it back in.
Conclusion: This is a very comfortable mask that looks great, but to me its not worth the $100 price tag with the fogging issue. I'm going to stick to my proflexs that have never fogged.

get a thermal lense thatl completely sort your fogging problum, ANY single pane lense will fog.

i have NEVER had fog in my i3s or pro i3s (with thermal lenses), and have played in over 90 degrees faranhight, and in snow.
