View Full Version : Fan goggles

Interesting product showed up at WGC recently:
Satellite Tactical Goggles have been specifically designed for airsoft. The lens has been protected against fogging on both sides and you can easily fit spectales inside. As additional feature you can easily disassemble STG for cleaning and replacing of lens. Wide field of vision.
No details on lens impact resistance as it pertains to testing standards (ANSI Z87.1+).
Quality looks lame for an $80 price tag. Not impressed with holding a battery box to the strap by a large zip tie.
They look cheap all around, I would rather spend 40-60 on a nice pair of ESS Profile NVG's.

Agreed. Military goggles get my vote over something like that. Although last night in the mist I was fogging really badly with my ESS's and a fan would have probably been nice, I might try some of the ESS fan ones. I cant completely blame the goggles, I have been hit before in the lense and theres a nice spot where the coating flaked off there. I probably should replace the lense anyways. Anytime you get hit in the lense thats a good idea. It sucked because the left half of my goggles were fogged hardcore and the right side was fine. As long as the coating is on there and in good condition those ESS's dont fog too badly.

Those look all kinds of uncomfortable and poorly made. Won't be trading my ESS in for those any time. Ever.

You won't regret it. I use them, and have never once had a fogging issue.
For years previously, nothing I tried worked. JT thermals, other ESS, some off-brand that I was told about. The price tag is a bit high on the ESS TurboFans (http://www.essgoggles.com/Profile-TurboFan_53_detail.html), but my visions is always clear.

The best goggles I have used so far are the goggles from revision eyewear. They will withstand a 12 guage shot gun blast at 16 feet with zero penetration. I used them at the weekend and they did fog once of twice but cleared within a couple of seconds.
They come in three different styles
Bullet Ants (http://advancedbattlefield.com/photo/BULLET_ANT.pdf)

The "Ant" link is broken, but the "Sawfly" aren't full sealing, so I'd advise against anyone using them for airsoft.

Bullet Ant link has been fixed.
Yes you are correct the sawfly's are not fully sealing and We do stipulate that they are not recommended for airsoft protection when ordering.

AB, many quality goggles and glasses will do that since those are impact tests to meet regulatory standards, such as ANSI.

The funny thing about goggles is that what works for one person might not work for the very next person due to face shapes, tendency to sweat, etc.
