For those of you who don't know what goggle skinz are: They're, in way, like "stickers" that you place on the lense of your goggles to either give yourself more camouflage, or add some "style" to your game. "Style" as in, eye designs, flag designs, as well as team designs you can design yourself.

I ordered 2 "camo" skinz. The "Stripz" and the "Spotz". After placing the "Stripz" design to my JT spectra and taking some field shots, I immediately saw the difference. I noticed how well the design blended in with the surrounding plantlife as well as the rest of my camo gear. But I'm sure you guys want more than that, so lets get to it.

Application was easy. A five year old can accomplish it with ease. Just unwrap the package, peal it off the base, then place it on the goggles. But as easy as it sounds, I highly suggest reading the instructions before doing so. When your gogged and have paint all over your lense, you can simply spray (not dunk, pour, or bloch) water onto the sticker. And then bloch it with a dry cloth. You can also use an ear swab for this job if you have any laying around.

For those of you who wonder what vision is like, simply put your eyes up against a screen door and see through it. It's quite literally just like that. Although you won't see as clearly as opposed to seeing through a glass window, it won't be problem. If you ever feel the need to remove the skin, you can heat it with a blow drier (yes, you heard me right) until your goggle lense is warm to the touch. At that point, you can just peel it off. However, putting it back on and making it stay on will be a chore.

Unlike the stickers you find at 7-11, these are tough as nails. Once applied, they won't simply come off. They will stay on even when your goggles are bobbing up, down, side to side, ect. The wind won't brush them off either. Heck, you can head bang to Metallica till' the cows come home and they still won't budge. However, I have no idea how they will react in rain. But considering the way they were made, I wouldn't worry about it. If your wondering how much of a "beating" goggle skinz can take, you'd be suprised. They can stand a direct hit from a paintball quite well. As for branches, well, you'd have to get scrapped by a tough branch for the goggle skinz to be effected. But I'm not saying they're indestructable. They can be scrapped. But when they do, you'll hardly notice the difference. You can expect a "skin" to last about 3 months or so on average use.

Now before you get yourself one, you'll need to know that the skinz won't be compatable with every goggle system. Here is a list of goggles they fit:

-JT Spectra series (260 / Flex 7 / IZE / Proteus / nForcer/ BrassEagle X-Shield / ProShield / ProFlex)
-JT X-Fire series (Tactical / Crossfire / Elite / Whipper Snapper / Soft Stream / nVader / PMI X-Ray)
-BrassEagle Xterminator /BrassEagle Xact Vision / 32 Degrees Head Case / Alpha 2000 / Sheridan "Full" / Java Guardian)
-Scott Intruder Series (Extreme Stalker / Strike / 32 Degrees Defender / Hot Shot / PMI Regular)
-Diablo Skul / Sheridan Prowler
-Raven Nuvis-1 2.0 / Java Type-V & Type-X

Unfortunatly, Skinz won't fit the following due to the "bulb" shape of the lense:

-DYE Invision
-B.E. 280
-B.E. MAXX
-V-Force series

Okay, maybe that was a stupid question. But look how well the "Stripz" design blends in.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me or the goggle skinz website.

Lemme add in a few cents.

I used to use these all the time, the "Tiger eyez" are probably my fault, and so are some of the camo "specialty" designs.

I really do enjoy the desings and the product. The only downside are cleaning and water. If you use these, bring a FLUFFY towel and a spray bottle of water. The only way to get spray or a direct hit off the lens is to spray it down, then "dab" at the lens with the towel until it's dry.

I will say the skinz can take a direct hit, which is VERY cool.

In the rain, the adhesive won't give. Another good thing. But the rain water gets trapped in the holes of the skinz, which is bad. I've been blinded by rain before, which really isn't much fun. If you think it's going to rain, bring a clear thermal lens so you can swap it out if you need to.

Why don't I use them anymore? Mostly because I've been wearing the V-forces more, and they don't fit that lens. Also my style of play has changed a little, and I don't need the extreme camo anymore. That being said, I sometimes swap into them, just to have fun.

Quick question, I know the JT flex 7 is on there, would you say the flex 8 is similar enough for it to fit?

It should, it uses the base "Spectra" lens.

I have a couple pair of goggles with these skins. Aside from rain as Tyger stated, also beware of dreary, cloudy days. I had them on two weeks ago, and when it was already dark in the woods from the cloud cover, the skins were impossible to see out of.

I have the OD camo flag and love it for bright days in the woods.

I also did some wonder-work with realtree screen-mesh and my PCS mask. It's Turkey blind screen material found at WalMart in the hunting section. The lense is a mirrored smoke thermal, which is why you might see some gleen through the mesh...

Here are a couple shots of what you see from outside the mask and a few looking through the lense. I did not use the flash on the camera. The shot of the curtain is to show what it looks like through the darkened lenses, in a darker environment (no lights on in the room...just daylight coming through the window), through the mesh. The shots of the vehicles was taken through my kitchen window. The window itself is dirty and there's the little matter of the screen on the other side of it too. It's actually alot more clear than what you see here....
