Your lower end goggles will fog. It is a fact of life. Your best bet is to get a goggle system that has at least a thermal lense. If you don't want to do that, there are various anti-fog gels and sprays, but they work sometimes and sometimes not. The other option is a fan. Depending on your type of mask you can get a visor mounted fan that will keep the lense cool.

Or you could go to radio shack, get a cpu fan, a wiring harnes, pushbutton switch and a 9v battery and "customize" your mask with a homebuilt fan.

All and all, I have said it before, and I will say it again. If you are serious about paintball, buy the best mask that you can -- profiler, flex, or invision seem to be the best for construction, visibility and not fogging.

Hope that helps

yup yup, qft. i had a profiler, and i fell in love with it. im a big guy, so i sweat more easily than some. hence fog. but when i got my profiler it didnt fog once. even on a hot day when i went balling. plus the view from it was absolutely superb, i could see everything.

get a profiler. Best there is for profile and looks, in my opinion. The I3 doesn't look very good, the older fade invisions are the ones that look good.

Or you can spend another $10 and get a flex 7, which imo is way better
Yes you can..... there are a few decent masks that are cheaply priced. Thats the lowest I found...if that guy dosent have alot of cash to spend. The masks you get in those kits are junk.... you can tell when you see someone completely fogged up!!! Funny!

Dudes, i know this might be gross, but spit on a paper towel and rub it on the inside of the lens, its an old scuba diving trick, your goggles won't fog for a few hours

Tell me about it. I spent the last two games of the day behind a bunker. I couldn't even see enough to run to the next bunker. I was planning on my next upgrade being a HPA tank. I think I'll get a nice mask instead.

gross?? I do that all the time... but I found under the bush's in the winter time, it would only defog for about 3 minutes... I've got some gel coming in the mail, and I've seen the demo video of it and its pretty great. I got the link recommended from this forum. http://www.fogtech.com check the demo video its pretty sweet.
