Also, does anyone have experience with it and any comments on if it fogs up much or not?
I have no insurance so I need to stick with full face protection, so no visors.
Thanks - Kevin
My friend has that visor/cage combo and it's great. I use the Bauer Concept 2 full shield and from a vision standpoint, both offer great visibility. My friend and I just started playing roller hockey and it really helped us see the game better.
I never got to use it a real game situation, but just running and moving around in the 920 there might be a bit more airflow but I really couldn't tell that great of a difference.
In either case, some fog free spray will go a long way. My concept 2 only fogs up slightly around the nose area and actually, I don't think I've ever seen my friend's fog up during a game. For context, we play outdoors in sunny Southern California.
