    Posted: 03 December 2005 at 3:05pm

 to me, the most annoying thing is a fog'd up mask. so i've been working on a fogles mask, and i made it happen by installing a gas mask into my JT paintball mask. it doesn't only WORK but it looks awesome! i tested the mask over an 8 hour period, the first hour the mask started to fog on the corners of the lens, by the second hour the lens was fully covered with a very very light fog, the the third hour and on the fog went away. this was tested at room temp i haven't yet got to test it at colder temps. so does anyone have a better idea for fogles masks or what not?

Yep. Always worked for me.

So long as the inner lens is clean... and I limit how often I ever touch it (use a blower to blow away dust... and if I NEED to clean it, use water ONLY and microfiber cloth)... the thermal lens alone seems to work for me.

That, coupled with proper fit, breathing thru my nose when I can, and not blocking any of the vents with headgear... it is a rarity that I ever fog up. For a while, I did have a JT fan as a backup... but it got to the point where I didn't really need it anymore.

i do own a thermo lens and it fogs the same as a normal mask, i use anti fog spray but it never works, and when i clean my mask i clean it with water and a soft cloth, it still fogs. for the first 2 short wars the mask never fogs up, but after it starts to fog it never stops, and thats not just my mask, all my crews masks do it to. so what do you guys have that i don't?...

After playing in Southern California and Virginia during the years before thermal lenses, and then playing with thermal lenses, I've found my personal favorite setup.

The problem is not just the breath coming from your nose and mouth but, also the evaporation of sweat from the skin around your eyes and forehead. No matter how well your breath is vented, this will cause fogging.

Personally, I've also found that the performance of thermal lenses deteriorates over time. I also don't like the way you have to be sure not to touch the inner lens, and trying to dab up dust and splatter with a few drops of water sucks.

Here's my setup: JT Proteus 2 with a single pane lens, and a fan. After every days play (or in between games when necessary after splatter, or such), I clean the lens using the plexus lens spray, and then apply the anti-fog treatment. The fog treatment by itself will prevent fog 95% of the time so far this year and I kick the fan when necessary. Easier to clean, and performs reliably.

Rub the inside of your mask with dish soap. then buff it in till its clear and streak free. best anti fog ever is dish soap

Or get a fan. But a thermal lens should work fine. i have played for 8 hours pretty much non stop with no fogging and only a thermal lens.

i think you have decided to think outside the box. I salute you sir.
