pic looks like it is b-short of ironmen at sc village or hollywoodsports park in california. I used to work in paintball industry and ocassionally use my cut up events for snowboard goggles. I cut the lower portion off so it is just the lens and straps, they work amazing.

i also worked in the industry for a while, and have been playing national events (nppl, psp) since 2003. lived in long beach CA my whole life till i moved about 3 months ago

On a few warmer days I've worn (some of) my airsoft loadout on the mountain for something different (see pic below). That said, I think the paitball goggles/mask could be a cool idea. However, I'd have to see a pic of more than just the mask to be certain (post a pic if you have one).



w/German WWII helmet

That is a sick getup!

im usually not digging bulking shit, I dont rock helmets and hardly wear goggles for that matter, but that painball mask is kinda tight. Id like to see what it looks like with a snowboarding getup also.

Bigger doesn't always equate with being able to kick smaller people's asses. Just saying...

On topic: How do the goggles perform fog wise? If it doesn't fog, I can see it being a really good alternative to actual snow goggles because you have a very large field of vision with those. Also protects your face from minor falls no?

they have an anti fog coating thats probably alot stronger than snowboard goggles because it needs to withstand the oils and crap from paintballs. ive never had my paintball goggles fog up on me. The facemask part works great for blocking spray from the snow machine, and other peoples boards and crap. aswell as if its snowing pretty hard, you wont get snow built up on your face.

Anti fog coating is on the inside of the lens, not outside. Sometimes it is actually burnt into the lens or is in-molded like what Zeal does with theirs.

At any rate, those should be some sick goggles to use for snowboarding. I'm not too sure about the looks though
