These are my new favorite goggles. I prefer a low profile goggle and previous to this my other option was Revision exoshields. Unfortunately Revision doesn't make an asian fit goggle, so I had a pretty large gap, which i had to cover with my lower mesh mask. This would end up being slightly visible and also sometimes it would shift and not be full seal. After hearing about the Smith Optics asian fit back in October, I couldn't wait to get a pair. I had to order from another site because they sold out so fast here.
Initial impressions: Great fit. Simple. Light. Just what I was looking for. (asian face)
After a few games they would condense, but not fog. Then I wiped the condensation and they fogged :( I used a revision anti fog wipe and everything was great for the rest of the day. ***Directions say to just use warm water to clean, no soaps or solvents due to the original anti fog coating***
For what they are, it's a good price. great product. Will probably order an ignitor or smoke set from GI in the near future.
-Look Ma, no gaps!
-Low Profile, light, and simple
-Vents can open to help defog when moving
-Will condensate (not fog) at first
-Still needs some kind of anti fog if you're not moving much
-No interchangeable lens... have to buy the whole thing over.
I purchased these goggles as I wanted something with a lower profile in comparison to my Arena Flakjak and Save Phace recon goggles. Be warned that these goggles WILL fog on you no matter what weather conditions you live in or utilize them in. Anti-Fog wipes will only help slightly with the fogging issue, here are some recommended modifications to make.
1) Drill the vent holes slightly larger
2) Remove the regulator system
3) Cut small slits into the foam
After these modifications the fogging is extremely minimal and it only occurs when you're stationary for a extended period of time. I would've given these goggles a higher rating had they handled fog a little better without modifications.
- Extremely low profile
- Unaltered vision
- You can purchase a strap system to mount it to ARC rails
- Will fog without modification
- The rubber straps can break
I am highly impressed with these goggles. They are really low-profile and sit really close to your eyes, which is helpful for me because they don't get in the way when I run NVGs. They aren't completely fog-proof (but, then again, no goggles are), and fog up a little bit when you're standing still. It usually clears up once you start moving again. If it doesn't, just give it a quick wipe with an anti-fog cloth and you're good to go.
A lot of people have an issue with this, which I don't entirely understand. In my opinion, if you're involved in a gunfight, you probably won't be standing around that much. Anyways, I highly recommend getting Smith Optics' shock cord kit in conjunction with these goggles, because the included strap will break after a while and the shock cord straps give you better ventilation.
Overall, I couldn't be more happy with these goggles. They're a great product for a great price. I highly recommend them.
- Low-profile, full-seal and lightweight
- Very clear lenses
- Gives a wide field of view
- Sometimes fog when standing still (This isn't really a con to me, but to each his own)
- Original strap should be replaced.
- No interchangeable lens.
