Now, I need some thermal goggles. I have JT Raptors and they're garbage. They fog and fog and fog, to the point where I can't play safely.

I need some thermal goggles. Where should I but them? What should I get? and finally, how do I get rid of my old ones?

Anything with a dual pane lense.

I love i4s, but lots of people find them small. As for how to get rid of them? Try and sell them here, or on craigslist or a similar site.

i was thinking about starting a thread like this... but to talk about the Differences in Regular anti fog goggles and Thermal lense goggles..


I would hold on to it... (if you got other gear you can keep it as a loaner) or to mess with people on the field by setting it in a bush or on a bunker wall.. im gonna take an old mask with on sunday and put a hat on it.. and take a gravity hopper and set it next to it..

see if anyone falls for it.....

i use to donate my old masks to the police department..

they use 9mm paint rounds for training called SIMS

and they use crappy masks that fog up way to easy..

i was wearing my proto mask one day at swat training (i was roll playing as a hostage) and one of the guys on the team comes up to me and asked me where i got my mask, and asked if it fogs..

i said it dont fog at all and i got it at Action Village in Woodale.. he asked for directions...

now most the guys on SWAT have their own mask.

I recommend looking at either the JT Spectra series of masks (Spectra/Flex7/Proflex) or the Vents lineup of masks.

JT Spectras have a long standing reputation for their thermal lenses and good ventilation. Just make sure you wash them properly and do not get water between the two panes and they will stay fog free for a long time.

Vents also make a pretty nice lineup of goggles, all will take the same thermal or single pane lens. Their designs are a little more close-fitting and form the face a bit more. They sacrifice a bit of ventilation and protection for that in my opinion. I prefer JTs, but it's another option. The advantage they definitely have over JTs is that the lenses are much easier to take in and out.

V-Force's Morph and Shield have been my favorite lately. They're an older design, but offer excellent ventilation. All V-Forces use a single pane lens, but the anti-fog coating works extreme well. I replace my lenses about once a year, and with mild California weather they've never had a problem.

JT Flex's are the shiz. A year ago, I would have recommended the VForce Grill, but their lenses are pretty fragile (scratch easily).
I've had a pair of Flex 7's for a while now. They take abuse and keep coming back for more.

Those don't look too bad. They're in the Spectra line, so the lenses are good. Not totally sure about the mask itself, but they should be good for a while.
Not top of the line, but definitely a solid middle of the line mask.

Proshields are great, they're identical to Flex 7s and Proflexes but use hard plastic parts. They don't have the rubberized plastic bottom part of a Flex7 and don't have the soft ear pieces of the Proflex. Outside of that, the goggle portion is identical. It's a solid lens, and offers full peripheral vision. They use a slightly dated "mushroom cap" system to take the lenses in and out which can be a bit difficult at first, but with a few tried you get used to it.

It was the only one I could find in solid black, or is it possible for me to get thermal goggles and put those on my mask?

Possibly, what kind of mask do you have?

Those are thermal, and should fit your mask.
