best large mask for humid areas?

im relatively new to the sport and currently looking to buy a mask. i have looked at the profits but those seem to not completely fill my needs. i have a larger head than most so i need something that can cover both my ears and bottom jaw nicely (the later im told the profits do not do too well) and i live in a very humid environment so the lenses need to be some of the best in anti fog. ventilation doesn't need to be too good, 10 to 15 mins of low breathing doesn't bother me. Preferably in at most the 120 price range but i will be willing to check out the higher stuff. any advice on were and what to look at would greatly appreciated.

you need a mask fan if dual pane lenses are still fogging on you.

I live in florida. I can put money on it you are not more humid than me.
Back on topic i love my profits. Never fogged up on me. I can hear everything and speak fine. I also wanted a new mask in the last few months just to get a new one and ive tried them all on. None of them felt right to me IF and i repaeat IF i was going to get a new one id say vio's but your head is bigger than mine so ultimatly your call.

I also want to point out that mask preference varies from person to person. There's a lot of really ncie masks that I personally hate; they just don't fit me right. You should try on as many as possible to see what works best for you.

Flexes are great for big heads. Take a look at those. Hear great things about those. I personally use Grillz.

Not sure where you are but here in Houston there's a fair bit of humidity. I use Vios with the extend bottoms and haven't had trouble yet and it fits my big ol' noggin when lots of other stuff doesn't. I also own a pair of Profilers and I hear good things about the Eflex/Proflex for larger heads.

Fog is no longer an issue and I'm sure when I throw a mask fan onto the Vios they'll be even better.

I would go with a flex/eflex or even the vios with the larger bottoms, or you can go with a vforce profiler with a thermal lens.

Any mask with a thermal lens should not fog

^ what those guys said, & I really like the older vents too. Events are great too but the vents felt better on my face. Vents or grills, or if you rock a beard or have a HUGE head then Flex.

You do need to put them on YOUR face to judge, the face makes the choice.

I like my EFLEX 8. They rarely fog (and when they do it goes away quickly), and they fit my massive head.

I've got a pretty fat head and I dearly love my Grilz. Grab some dual panes and you'll be fine.

IMO the Empire E-Flexs are the best goggles in the industry, for large heads and small heads. Never had a lens fog up on me. Also, V-froce goggles tend to echo, so the only thing you can hear on the field is your own breathing.

The proflex is pretty big and roomy. Not sure if the ears would cover you but like everyone else said you gotta try them on to know for sure.

Dual pane(thermal) lens is mandatory for starters. No single pane system will work well enough in those conditions. Goggles with good air flow through the mask and not too large of a mask either. That being said, what's even more important is NOT TO OVER DRESS.

I see so many guys with head rags, neck protectors, those dumb solid JT helmets, layers of clothing, padded shirts blah blah. All that crap is holding in body heat and moisture. Get rid of it! Especially on your head. The more your sweat out of your face, the more likely you're going to fog up.

Goggles with a padded headband on your forehead(for those forehead shots and to suck up sweat from dripping down into your gogs) and that's all! No head rags, no throat guards. If you must wear more layers than a jersey and pants, make them some type of clima cool material or athletic gear designed to wick sweat away and keep you cool.

For bad bad situations you can also apply antifog coating to the inside of your lens every game or so if it's really bad. Water with dish soap........spray in, wipe clean. Fast and simple. You can even try rotating goggles every few games just to let one dry out while you wear the dry pair.

i love my events. i did do a mickey mouse mask fan for my glasses, but ever since ive done that, no more fog.
they are a tad bit on the smaller side though. i say go for flexes. theyve been the roomiest ive tried on.

Nothing breathes easier than an E-Flex or a Flex.

My team and I have been using JTs Flex,Spectra, and Flex7 for many years with great success. We are in central FL and have played in most every weather condition FL can throw at us. We also supplement with some of fogdoc on the really bad days. While everyone else fogs, we are still up. Very usefull for those 24 hour games.
