I live in Alaska. I've had one of these for about 15 years and it's lasted all this time without falling apart. "Best thing since sliced bread!" It's ugly as sin, but I've been able to snowmachine as cold as -35 F without fogging up my goggles. I'm always warm and comfortable. I always feel sorry for other riders who continually fight fogged goggles while I have absolutely no trouble at all. I am now going to buy 2 more so I have a new one and an extra for friends or family (so I can stop feeling sorry for them!). My original is this model, which I wear over a thin balaclava for added warmth. This time I'm buying the DG model so I have more neck coverage. A great and well thought out product. I'll never figure out why I don't see more folks wearing them. I guess they like being miserable. When you need to be warm and comfortable, appearance is not the first thing to worry about! LOL! Seriously, this is a fantastic product and I ALWAYS use mine.
