Does the HK Army rain guard eliminate glare?

From reading these forums it seems like all masks have glare on sunny days. Vision is so important to me and I don't want any glare. The HK KLR masks have a plastic rain guard that can be attached to cover the vents on the top of the mask. It's not a visor, you can't even see it once its on, it just covers the vents. Does this completely eliminate KLR glare?

What masks don't have glare?

I always have less glare with darker lenses...

Best solution to to use a visor. Im sure you could mod some other visor on to the KLR.

I went outside with my i4's and the glare is way worse on the mirror lens. The clear lens has minimal glare. I noticed that if I covered the top vents with my fingers the glare was almost 100 percent gone. I guess I will just try the tape trick on the i4s and hopefully they wont fog. I just wish the i4 was a tiny bit bigger.

Well glare from the top vents is different than just having glare from the sunlight on the lens which is what I thought people were talking about.

Just find or buy any vforce visor and attach it with some zipties.

that would work but wouldn't that defeat the purpose of having a mirror/tint lens? At that point you would just want to use a clear or yellow lens with the visor.

Not at all, direct sunlight isnt the only source if eye strain. Personally on sunny days I need both a visor and tinted lens unless I want a headache (white bunkers).
