So I really only use my air hole only if it is the only available mask I have with me.
Lol, you sure aren't helping the Air Hole ad campaign. Thank-you for your honest advice and for saving me $40 bucks.

The fogging up issue is something that will be difficult to avoid. Maybe just make the mouth piece larger and shape it with air trapping material so that when I breathe the air head straight out the vent in the mask instead of up towards the goggles. I'm sure this is possible... Gonna try it.
