Ok i am looking for great visability, great breathing. I cant deal with fogged up lenses its like a pet peeve. Hahah
But anyway. I have narrowed it down to about two. See the thing is i am trying not to spend over 70. I know this is something where i should not penny pinch but times are hard and i cant stand my JT goggles as they keep fogging. Even with anti fog spray. So i was thinking the Empire Avatar Vent Goggles or the Vforce Provantage. Whats everyone views on some great breathing goggles with good visibilaty.

I have the Avatars, nice mask, it breathes well and has has a good field of vision. However, to me the lenses seem to scratch very easily.

Hmmm ok. Thanks for the advice. See my deal with the provantage is it doesnt look like it has very good view.
But yeah the avatars was what i was leaning to.

the lenses do scratch a bit easily, but a single clear lens can be found for about $10. not a bad price. i've only had to replace the lenses once in the 6 months i've had it. the singles are also easy to clean. take em off, windex, or soap and water.

I have Avatars, love them. They come with smoke and clear lenses (Thermal lenses, no fogging) and have a wide field of view. A lot of people complain about breathing in the mask, but I personally don't have any problems with that. :)

If you can find Proflex's for $70, you're set.

Nothing can beat them IMO other than Grillz, and MAYBE i4's.

I've got i3 Pros and I love them. I've worn Dye masks for about 5 years now and the only time I hate them is when it's time to change the lenses, and then BOY do I hate them. With the burning passion of a thousand suns. Fortunately, it's only for about an hour or so, then I go back to loving them :)

That said, many of my teammates swear by the e-Vents and I admit, they do look pretty sweet (not to mention my jealousy at the easy to remove lenses). i4s haven't impressed me in their looks or face protection, but I only wore them in the store and for a quick scrim, so I can't really judge.
