Perhaps take some black electric tape and place int inside the frame, on the bottom of where the lens mounts. You are probably getting glare from that part.

Your getting glair off the part of the frame that wraps around the nose. Quick fix is electrical tape. Flat black plasti-dip works wonders and looks better if done right.

the nose line and the fore head is where I am getting most of the glare.. I thought about just painting it but i don't want that strong smell of paint on the mask either..

Plastidip don't have a real strong Oder, Especially after it dries. If you mess up or don't like it you can Peel it right off.

I would follow the mask painting threads suggestions for best results. It shows a step by step process. You will get the nicest results that way. I would just mask off what you dont want painted. If you paint the entire thing it will chip off. I would just paint the inside to remove the glare. (The parts that don't get abused by playing)

I had the same problem and used a Sharpie to color over the white part. Got the glare down to a reasonable level but I am going to go over it again just to be safe.

It's only because you got the white. The I4 fit closer to your face, breath better hold up better and have better lenses and never fog. If you can get the I4 to fit your faces its hands down the best mask on the market. I never buy White gear because it's usually filthy in a few months of use. once you fix the glare issue you will like them. I just went back to them after using a few different high end masks. I stuff my fat face in them and ware them low with two head wraps to wear them because I like them the best.

i4 Glare

I've got a pair of the white camo i4s and I used gaffers tape on mine because it's more matted than electrical tape and it doesn't leave residue if you want to take it off. Haven't had any glare issues since I did this.

Great fix is any type of foam on the top part over the white vents. Creates a shade and doesn't require you to deal with the annoying sharpie or paint smell. You can get goggle type foam at Home Depot and just cut to fit. If done right no glue is needed and it will stay in place. I cut a curved piece and it fit snug stoppered the glare and didn't create any fogging.
