Jt has the 260* thermal lense(JT protues and Flex-7) to reduce fog. So I would suggest the Jt.

vforce also has a 260 field of vision with thermal lenses as well. also they're lenses are spherical so your peripheral vision suffers less than wearing a JT mask. however, i think that the longer distances might take a penalty in exchange for a more clear wide view.

JT. The Vforce users at my field constantly complain about the anti-fog coating wearing off.

Yeah thats also a problem at my field. The rental masks have anti-fog and the coat wears off constantly.

I have never fogged my V-Force Shield.
So I highly recommend it.

The Morph hands down! It covers alot more of your face for one. Two, the lens pops right out for easy cleaning. And three, it is a lot more comfortable then the JT.

fogging

The vf masks are not thermal.. they are coated... eventually the coating will wear off and the mask will perform as a sinlge lens mask... meaning it will fog. The coating does not last forever. Thermal lens do not rely on a coating, thus they will work untill you mes up the lens...

The Dye mask is really nice.... however, if your a person the sperspires alot..... the mask will fog, even with thermal lens.

yes I have used all three.... and to this day I still prefer my JT.. not as nice or pretty as the Dye.... but it performs better for me.

I just bought a V-Force Shield, and its pretty cool. I can't wait to play with it. I tried it out, and the vision range is awesome, and the neck guard that cons on it is pretty cool.

I've been playing on my original lense with my morph for over a year now, and except for one tiny nick on my right side, its as clear as anything, and hasnt fogged one iota since i bought it, be it in the rain or high humidity.

And the vforces have an impregnated thermal layer cooked into them, so while they are not "double paned" lenses, they are still "thermal". its not like single paned lenses on other masks where the anti-fog is just a chemical coating that washes off... this is a hard coat on the lense that is an actual physical layer.
