Fan Goggles

So I have recently decided to purchase a pair of fan goggles, I have tried a lot of different things to help me with my fogging issues and this is my last option. I am torn between the Revision Locust Fan Goggles and the ESS Turbo Fans. The revisions are a little cheaper in price but I was wondering if anyone has tried either of these goggles. Also, if anyone has ran into any problems with either one of these goggles. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I have had both. Been running ESS since 2005. Never a problem until 2012, but ESS replaced them. Before getting them replaced I was given a set of revisions in 2012. They did the job but weren't as comfortable as the ESS. Also my revisions crapped out inside of a year. BUT as with ESS, revision replaced them. I prefer ESS, bt would have no issue recommending either!

This is not really about fans, but I do suggest trying one more option before buying a fan (not discouraging you from buying a fan, just suggesting an alternative).

Have you tried using Rain-X on your goggles? A friend of mine who sweats a gallon a second and fogs consistently randomly decided to put some of the Rain-X gel on his goggles and he didn't fog at all the entire day. You can find it at most auto parts stores, and I think you can also find it at Walmart.

I never would have thought to try that, I also have ordered some revision anti fog wipes.

I wonder if you can have rain x near your eyes without any issues. Since your friend did it im sure it's fine. Thanks for the suggestion though!

He wears glasses under his goggles, and he coats both his glasses and his goggles. He's never had any issues as far as I know. I've personally never tried it because I rarely fog anymore, but he coats his goggles and glasses every time we head out for a game and I've never seen him fog.

Hmm, okay. I have been doing some research about rain-x and it seems viable. The only thing I worry about is using this stuff and it removing my anti-fog coating on my goggles. I'm using the Revision Bullent Ant goggles, I love them but they just fog a lot.

The rain-x is an idea alright. It works amazing for my car. Did he put it on the inside, outside, or both of his goggles?

The only thing i have seen completely eliminate fog is this
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ski-Snowboar...item2a16ef274a
It is a magnet on the inside and outside of the goggles you just wipe the fog away cheap amazing I had a pair and they worked great until one fell off (which is actually really hard to do).

Everything I read online about it says to put it on this inside of your goggles only.
