Sly Profit... WTF?

Okay this mask has given me issues numerous times no matter what kind of weather I am playing in or even being indoors. This mask is just not cutting it. I have removed the ear foam to drastically improve my hearing while wearing the mask. I also cut down the profile of the mask which was recommended by Matt off of New England Avalanche. But even with these changes and everything, the mask continues to fog. The clear lens that I recently bought for it has just let me down again and again by fogging up and it is more than frustrating to say to a teammate, "Sorry I cannot shoot that guy because I cannot see him or anything else."

I have owned and used Dye i4's before this and never had any issues with them. Never had them fog or anything and considering how much closer those are to your face and their profile. I am just struggling with how many issues I have had with my Profits when they are used and well liked by many others.

Anyone have any insightful thoughts or ideas as to what could be causing these fogging issues?

Thanks,

Maybe ur a heavy breather? Anywho i think u should try picking up one of those mask fans, some of them are pretty quiet and not that heavy. Otherwise i would consider picking up an eflex. They have a great field of vision, hearing, breathability and never fog

I am wondering if other users of the Sly Profit have had this issue and what they have done to fix this issue. Whether it be a defective lens and just needs to be replaced, or any number of other reasons.

If the lens itself Is fogging, Right under the lens on the bottom there are little vent holes, I would suggest e-taping them up and it helps a lot with LENS fogging, not so much glasses.

Ive been using them for some time now. I have only had them fog in cold weather. And ive had literally every mask fog on me in cold weather. From events, eflexs, and i4s. When jts cold out I just use some cheap antiflog spray. Which helps.

I've never had a problem with mine. I've used them for a good year now, and they are great, in my opinion. Well, they did fog once. But that was my fault. I fell in a pond. Try breathing primarily out of the nose. It helps a lot. Don't pant while running, wait until you get to where you are going. Talk minimally. Also, the stock lens of the profit tend to cause less problems than any other.

Mine fogged until I used FogDoc and made some cuts in the vents at the top. No more fog.

During the winter EVERY mask will fog.
