For those that owned or own one, what do you think of them? Specifically the Bombardier one. The one I'm looking at is an 01 Bombardier. Also, does that "Breath Evac" system work or is it a joke? Thanks.

mine worked good. never once fogged. i found i was always fiddling with the mask though, and kinda got sick of it. i went to a motocross helmet with goggles. they don't fog either, but it gets a little cold when it get down to 10 degrees or so. i still have my mod, and was thinking about selling it on ebay.

We were up in northern wisconsin this last weekend and the temp. hit 10 below when we were riding at night. My nephew has a Bombardier one and he didn't fog up at all. Everyone else in our group had fog problems at that temp. He really likes his.

Arctic Cat makes a helmet TXi motocross style with a fully sealed face shield, you can also get a heated shield.

Helmet is about $250.00 don't know cost of electric shield, but you need one no matter what helmet, if it is snowing or any precipitation.

Do not buy the new BV2S I returned it, it is JUNK.

I've had one for 4 years and love it, it's the only thing that I've found to work with glasses. -10 last Sat nite and it never fogged, but you do have to watch the heavy breathing, and check the evac tubes to make sure they are connected to the mask.
