Mutter paint gets on the inside too. i think the anti fog coating on the mask is baked on, plus its dual paned to keep the air between the 2 panes balanced. fog is caused when the inside heats up and the cold outside condenses the heat/sweat into steam. dual pane lens stops that from happening. There are lots of different styles of masks though. these are just the ones i have.

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

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?

NYinfamous2k2 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.

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!
