V-Force Armor Goggles
April 21, 2007
V-Force Armor with thermal lens was the first goggle system I purchased. I made this decision purely based on price. If I was smart I would have read some reviews and talked to some people. These goggles were alright and served their purpose well. THE BENEFITS: They were cheap, the lens could easily be detached, cleaning was simple, and the thermal lens did hold up against fog better than single lenses. THE PROBLEMS: The peripheral vision was blocked a bit on the sides, the comfort level was lacking, and the thermal lens was not as effective as others in the price range. My biggest complaint is that the foam around the lenses is scratchy and uncomfortable and ripped off with wear from taking them on and off. I highly recommend spending a few dollars more in the beginning, you will save in the long run. Proto Switch and JT X-Fire are both great alternatives for a similar price. These are both far more comfortable, are made with softer foam and more foam around the lenses, and offer a bit more range of vision. The Proto Switch Thermals seem to fog less than the JT X-Fire or V-Force Armor.
