you shoud be able to find it anywhere. If not it'll be easy to order it via internet. this one is from a montreal shop but it's easy to find anyway.

There are really only two reasons you should buy a tinted visor:

A) You are one of the best players in the world and don't give a damn what anyone thinks. ( I'm guessing this is not you)

B) You enjoy being the laughing stock of your crappy rec league and will savor the repeated punches in the face.

Choose wisely.

Do we believe you? Not sure. What's your name?

I agree with you though.

Somebody wants to fight me over the tint on my visor? Be my guest. I'll see them in the parking lot..

Anyone who would fight someone because of the kind of visor he wears has some SERIOUS mental/maturity issues.

Don't get in their way.

Darwinism would love to see them fighting in the parking lot over a visor, and you should too.

The tinted shield by Itech isn't certified so it shouldn't be allowed for league use.

Hockeymonkey.com has it. I've seen a few people wear it and it does look like they are trying to show off but it could give you an advantage. If you are a good passer and people cannot see where you are looking I think it would help. And a goalie cannot look to where you are trying to shoot the puck-if you look when you shoot and for some strange reason he is not looking at the puck. The funny thing about the fighting comments is that about 25 years ago people were probably called sissies for just wearing a helmet. Now if you wear a tinted visor somebody wants to take it to the parking lot, we've come a long way.
