  1. Hi guys I’ve been testing this system I’ve designed for a year now and it works fine, no fogging issues anymore. This type of goggles are designed to be worn with a helmey which restricts the airflow behind the lenses. Furthermore in airsoft a mouth mask is a good idea but this reduces the flow even more and it potentially make humid air from breathing getting inside and worsens the fogging problem. With this air pump the air is pulled from inside the goggles and fresh clean air enters through the surrounding frame. This way humidity decreases and the temperature in the interior gets closer to that of the exterior. It works also in 100% relative humidity. The disadvanges: it adds complexity to setting up your carrier and googles, a little bit of weight, the tube that attach to the goggles is a bit incomodating but at least for me it’s not an issue. It makes some noise but you can turn it off when needed. Thanks
  2. You'r right. They make too much noise it would be very hard to make them silent enough. Also power supply, I agree, could be a problem.
  3. How about using a portable minicompressor in your hpa tank backpack and keep it connected to your tank. I've found a digital 250psi 12 car compressor that automatically stops when desired selected pressure is achieved. I din't wether it stars again when pressure gets low, I did't buy it. Basically a 200-250 psi is more than enough for the polarstar engine to work. You shoul be able to shoot 30-50 shots until the compressor will have to pump air again. Advantages of this setup: -Safety: 250psi is way safer than 3500-4500psi -You don't need an expensive manual hpa pump or to go to your local airsmith, thus you save time and possibly money(filling the tanks at airsmith is not expensie though) -you don't need the expensive carbon fiber versions of hpa tanks anymore only bigger volume will be prefferable. Drawbacks: -Added weight and volume to the already heavier and bulkier setup -you need to be careful not to connect a highly presurized tank to the cheap pressure but only if pressure inside it less that 250psi. -You ll need a good lipo battery like 11.1v 5000mah to operate the compressor. Caution : never put the hpa air tank and your lipo batteries close one to another or in the same puch/bag especially when tha hpa tank is higly pressurized. -Noise from operating the compressor - makes thing more complex on fileld- if you work with the compressor manually you'll have to switch it on and off and determine when to stop by the sound it makes - possibly filling line and adaptor for compressor - you'll probably need an air filter for the compressor. You ll not like dirty air into your performance hpa tank. I don't know if the setup will actually work but I think it would.
