    Posted: 25 December 2006 at 6:30pm

Hey, this Christmas I got an Extreme Rage Xray Protector goggle system. I tried running around outside in the cold to see if it would fog up, and it didn't! However, will it always be as "anti-fog" as it is right now? Or does the antifog wear away?

If it does wear away, what thermal lense do you recommend?

(sorry if i posted in the wrong forum, I wasn't exactly sure where to post this)

I don't know about Extreme Rage goggles, but most goggles with "anti-fog" have the "anti fog" wear off after a few days of play...

By the time you invest in a thermal lense you have pretty much bought yourself a new set of googles anyways.

I would suggest investing your money in a pair of high-end goggles like the V-Force Profiler, Dye Invision, or Empire Vents...

You will tank yourself in the long run.

I don't know if any will fit...

Let me look.

Most Low End goggle systems like that don't accept thermal lenses.

The anti-fog wont last long. As mentioned, you're better off buying a good pair of goggles to last you a long time rather than replacing lenses.

In general I agree with those above that say get a "better" goggle system if you want to switch to thermal lenses ,,,, but ,,

Extreme Rage also markets an anti-fog polish you apply to the inside of the lense , even if you do upgrade , those higher end goggle systems would eventually benefit from using it .

If you haven't used them much or at all stick them back in the package and get vforce profilers or events.

Upgrading would be the best. If you can find thermal lenses, it will be around $20 I think. Also the fog spray and an other anti-fog things don't work too well. They will help clean the mask lens, but doesn't necessarily help with fogging.

my little brother has xrays and they came with a thermal lens

so i would assume you can buy them

 

you may want to switch them off eventually because they are the biggest, bulkiest, uglies googles i have ever seen... not to mention very uncomfortable.

but they are very safe and cover 90% of the head (part of the reason i got them for my little brother)

but man a simple google search turned up:

http://www.amazon.com/Extreme-Rage-XRay-Thermal-Lens/dp/B000 6A59LO

edit: hm... says it is not currently available... oh well you get the idea that google is the way to go
