Strengths: Controls the humidity inside your goggles. Switch is two-way, which controls airflow to the top part of your mask. This is great because the user can direct wind into or out of the goggles, making venting very efficient when you need it most. Since I sweat like a hog, thermal goggles prevent the normal fogging but not the condensation which collects after a few hours of running in the woods or sprinting through the speedball fields. Since wiping down the inside of your lenses is absolutly NOT an option in-game, normal visiblity is impossible when heavy steam builds up. This product saved my a$$ a bunch of times when normally all I could do was wait till the match was done. Recommended.
Weaknesses: Installation is a pain. The actual fan isnt had to install, but the visor that goes on top of the Spectra has weak attaching points which creates headaches for the unaware. And please, please dont be stupid and forget to take this thing off when its time to wash the mask. =P

Noise: Is not much of an issue environmentally (ie. your opponents wont hear the whirring noise) but it could be distracting. I turn it on only when I feel the moisture building up, and turn it off before I make any big moves on the field.
Conclusion: I would recommend this accessory to anyone who sweats alot onfield. Lazy players need not apply, as thermal lenses would do the job of keeping your vision clear since the lazy player doesnt run much anyway. Another nice thing about it is the personal air conditioner aspect. Hanging in the dead zone isnt half bad when I flick the old switch on...catching some air while the dead shoot the breeze. If on a budget, the Cross wind is a similar product (which JT might've phased out, not sure) that a person could look for that does a similar job. The only feature that the xwind lacks is the multi-directional function, not a big deal. In short, its an upgrade that can truly help your game if one of your problems is fog. A great gun and a cool jersey does nothing for you if you cant see where youre running or what youre shooting.
