Period of
Product Use:

Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
Dye i3 Pros with Dye Invision Turbine Goggle Fans;
Proto Goggles with fan;
JT nForcer and nVader and Flex 8 Goggles with JT Vortex II Goggle Fans
Marker Setup: 26 A-5s in various configurations with remotes, etc. (I loan out my stuff for people to use.)
4 Tacamo Type IIs
Strengths: Really comfortable and quiet. Great price.
Weaknesses: Colors suck. See review.
Review: First the weakness. I (and my friends) play woodsball so the bright colors suck. All the ones I have are blue and I've not been able to acquire any black ones.

I have 8 of these Extreme Rage goggles and I have used them extensively with a variety of people. The fans are super quiet compared to other goggle fans I've used. The flexible chin guard does deflect shots and prevents ball breaks. The protection is totally adequate for the face, even though they do seem small. (Psychologically, I guess I would prefer if they were a little bigger.) On top of that the price for goggles and fans can't be beat!

They are very effective at preventing fog. I and a lot of my friends sweat a lot. Without fans, we wouldn't be able to play - period. Never had a complaint from anyone about fog while using these fans. Everyone thought the goggles were comfortable.

FOR COMPARISON: On my Extreme Rage goggles with the built-in fan, 8 out of 8 were quiet. For my Dye Invision Goggle fans, 3 out of 4 were quiet. The Proto fan was noisy and useless. Of the 20 JT Vortex II goggle fans I own, which I use primarily on the JT Nforcer goggles, only 5 are what I would consider quiet.
Conclusion: If you need a fan and don't want to spend a bundle on goggles and a goggle fan, these are the goggles for you (if you can get past the colors). They are (almost) everything you'd want in a goggle - seriously.
