The Proto Switch goggle system adds the Turbine fan to its ever-growing bag of tricks. The Turbine keeps fog and perspiration away so you can deal with the real pressure on the field. It features the Turbo 9 accelerator blade that yields higher air flow volume and operates at a lower RPM, resulting in quieter operation and extended battery life. With 2-speed operation, you'll never have to lose your focus again.
The Proto Turbine Fan is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Not much - much easier access to battery than any JT fans.
LOUD - like all the mask attached fan systems flawed concpet! Wish the designers wore glasses.
I'm the old man x-Nam Vet and Sr. Engineer. All the fans system that fit above the mask are flawed as they take in your hot moist body heat and blow it upon my glasses/mask lens. They are all LOUD killing stealth sniper hearing/OPs. It is usually HOT/humid where I play and no matter what I do I'm plagued with severe mask/glasses condensation. No, low air volume fan works including this one. All current fan systems stink as I suspect the designers do not where glasses just like I've found with mask makers not accommodating glasses wearing.
Do not buy - you'll be disappointed. Condsider placing the fan behind the users head (or on the belt - better) and use plastic >0.5" air-duct tubes attached to the head straps (to both sides) of the mask.This will remove most all the noise from near the face/ears. But you do not want to increase the rear weight on the head strap pulling the mask out of place on the users head. So place the battery in a belt pouch (allows for bigger 12V type battery) with an easy access 100% speed/powered control (like a blower voltage potentiometer). Use a 2.5-3" BLOWER not a 1" mini-fan that has NO CFM - get >10CFM into the mask over each eye.

Great alternative to flushing money down the toilet
Well, it doesnt really work
Wow, i sure am glad i spent 30 on this or whatever this junk costed me. It doesnt work and it sounds like theres a swarm of bees in your ears when you turn it on. I bought this piece for woods games in the summer, when its like ultra humid over here on the east coast, represent, yeeahhh. But anyway, you cant hear or see for anything, so just glue ice cubes to your face, that works much better
Its a piece

When I first got this fan I was very excited, but when I put the battery that can nicely with it and turned it on, I was like damm. Very loud, I play woodsball and a key marksmen on my team, so silence is my best weapon, I could not hear anything really except the paintball guns. It does what it is suppose to do.
Dont get this fan if you play senerioball or woodsball, but the thermal goggles keep the fog out, but at a cost.
Get this fan if you speedball but you wont really sweat or fog up then
