Review: What a disappointment!
From the moment I opened the box I was disappointed - only 1 lense - for £85 you cheeky buggers! The previous versions came with two thermal lenses - so why not this one???
Secondly, and most importantly, the construction of this mask was of very poor quality. The face-plate was distorted (bad mould) & consequently, getting the lense to fit was very difficult. I guess that the factory doesn't have any kind of quality control, because I could tell, even before I put the mask on, that something was not quite right.
Finally, what can I say - £85 !!! what a con! For something that is supposed to be a 'High-End' goggle system, I would say that there was vitually no effort made to produce a 'High-End' goggle sytem. Cheap materials & poor construction quality make for a second rate product - considering that you can buy the equivalent Helix system for £20 - what justifies the extra £60+??? Value for money??? Don't make me laugh!

HOWEVER, where it matters, the mask excelled. Superb distortion free optics made it a pleasure to use. Coupled with the ease with which you can change lenses, this makes for a very good mask.
Shame about the quality issues.
Conclusion: I have been a long term user of Vents products & I have generally been very happy with them. Not this time though.
The whole thing smacks of 'Lets see how much money we can bleed out of Rec-Ballers'.
I would dearly love to know what the manufacturers costs are - if anyone knows, feel free to reply.
In the mean time, yes, I would recommend this product, but try before you buy!
