It prevents fogging but buy thermal lenses instead of it. It was a little bit difficult to install and visor touches the button permanently so it happenes the fan started when a branch touched my visor. I don't like the noise it makes and you won't hear anyone moving towards you. This product is intend for people who have a single lens mask and are fed up with the fogging but you're better of when you buy thermal lenses which are available for most single lens masks.
No other fan, that's kind of why I bought the fan.
Spyder Sonix(of course), 14" Progressive barrel, 32 degree venturi bolt, 47 ci 3000 psi Crossfire air tank, Gold Proteus mask with X-Wind fan, and normal hopper
It's compact and it has two fan motions.
I hate the cheesey plastic fan and how hard it is to install.
The fan works but I wish that it could just work a little better. The fan is cheesey and a lot of the wind doesn't get to you, but it beats taking off the mask because its fogging up so bad. But you risk getting your eye shot out. So I say for only 22 bucks this fan is worth it, even with thermal lenses. The battery isn't a pain to take out as most people have said, but I don't know whats the best mode for it. Is it better to have have it suck the air or blow it away?
For only $22 you should buy the fan. It's not loud at all and cools you pretty well. I havn't used it in battle yet but it has been hot here and it cooled me off. Its not as bad as the reviews. It should be at least an average of 8-9 on the review....but I have no clue why it's not.

-instead of fogging, sweat collects at the bottom of your eyes
I bought this a few months ago to stop my glasses from fogging. After struggling to install it (It's easier to install if you use an exacto knife to make the holes bigger), It worked great. With my luck, though, the first time I went out with it, I took two shots to the switch. Luckily, it didn't break. I'm not sure though, if the battery lasts for the 30 hours advertised.
If you have fogging problems or glasses, I would recommend this fan.
It gets a 9 because it's a pain in the butt to install.

Doesn't really help as advertised, and it's loud to you
It really didn't do jack squat. It was merely a nuisance. With a tiny little fan such as it had... you couldn't expect it to be that helpful. In my experience, it was a waste of money and I rarely used it, for when I did, it was just loud (to my ears) and had no tangible affect. :(
Buy a better mask, like a VForce Shield or Morph. It was not a good upgrade, at all.
I have used this fan for quite a while. Never seemed to do much to help. It is noisy enough that you can't hear what people are saying to you if they are talk even kind of quietly.(Makes sneaking around with team mates hard because you can't communicate). A few weeks ago, my mask kept fogging up and the fan was doing no good so I took it off. My mask didn't fog up the rest of the day. I think it restricts more airflow than it supplies. All I know is that I havn't had much of a problem with fogging since I took it off. I was using it on a JT Proteus mask.
It is my personal opinion that this fan is a waiste of money. I am very dissapointed.

Turn it on. Vrooooooooom. 30 seconds later, no fog. And I don't have a thermal lense. I have a single lense JT nVader. I am so glad I bought this. I used to have the thing fog up all the time, but now I don't have to worry if I see that it's starting to. It is also very inexpensive, only about 25 bucks.
Loud. It makes this incessent buzzing noise when you have it on, but you usually don't have to have it on for more than 30 seconds.
Kind of hard to install, but once you get it in, you don't have to worry about it popping out.
I would highly reccomend this to anyone who has a single lens, or even a thermal one. No more games where you can't see a foot in front of you because your mask is fogged up. A good, inexpensive solution to a really annoying problem. I give it a 9 out of 10 because you can't hear very well with it turned on, but thankfully, it usually wipes out the fog in less than 30 seconds.
It is definitly effective at preventing your goggles from fogging up during a game. Its the best thing out there by far... better then thermal lenses. Though they don't really cool you off at all, they are excellent at keeping the airflow moving through the mask and clearing/preventing the fogging in your googles. Mine worked in 90 degree weather with high humidity.
Cheap! And I dont mean price... in fact its not really worth the price. First off it's a pain in the ass to install onto the top of your goggles without breaking it or your mask. Also, it likes to crack as mine did.
Its probably the best thing on the market to clear the fog out of your goggles. However, its hard to install, expencive, and tends to break. If you have the money and patience to install it, it definitly won't let you down. I gave this product a 7 because it works, however it can be a pain in the ass.
