WarlockMercer Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007
Period of
Product Use:
3 months
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
JT fan
Marker Setup: Tippmann X-7, M4 stock, remote line, aimpoint red dot, RIS foregrip, sight elevator
Strengths: None. To be honest, this doesn't have strengths.
Weaknesses: LOUD, doesn't cool or vent.
Review: I thought this would be a great fan. Made specifically for my mask. Boy, was I mistaken.
First, it's LOUD. I'm not talking "gee, that's a little noisy"...I'm talking "hey, is that HIM over there" loud. You can hear the fan, and that's about it when you're on the field. It is REALLY loud. I can't stress that enough.
Second, it's useless. It doesn't circulate the air, it doesn't help cool, nothing. Now, I wear glasses when playing, so that doesn't help. But, it's supposed to work with or without them. I called DYE before buying it, and they said glasses? Sure, no problem. Well, guess what. It doesn't work. First, my glasses fog, then the mask fogs to the point that I have to actually leave the field. So what's the point of having a fan that doesn't allow you to play?
Third, it's not very well made. The first one I got literally had a piece fall off it when I fired it up the first time. Then, when it was replaced, the housing didn't lock in very well. So, it's not very well made.
Conclusion: Don't buy this. I hate to say this, but don't. It's not made well, it's extremely noisy, and it just plain doesn't work. It doesn't circulate air (with or without my glasses), it doesn't cool and it just plain doesn't do what it's advertised to do. Save your money, buy some diver's goggles no fog. The stuff you use to scuba dive. It's cheaper, and works better.

Get a Empire Vents, they're awesome and have slots for the glasses so they don't get wedged inbetween your face and the foam.
