Cookie 3G visor

Recommended Posts

Just bought a new 3G from Chutingstar, all good, sizing good, but.. There is a noticeable visibility reduction when I close the visor.. I mean I never jumped with full face helmets but I feel it should not be so drastic..

I know people reported problems with the anti-fog coating in the past, but nothing seems to peel off or anything like that.. just the lens itself is like.. foggy? It's not fogging up when I close it down, just the visor itself is not super clear..

Is that a problem or something I have to get used to? I expected much clearer lens to be honest..

Also, a side question - do people jump these helmets without a visor? If I take it off and just jump with sunglasses?

Thanks!

There is a plastic film covering the front of the lens peel it off.

Ok, emailed Paragear (sorry for misinforming at the beginning, baught it from Paragear), they are sending a new visor free of charge, pretty prompt and cool about it, very pleased with them. Another question popped up though.. So I tried wearing my sunglasses under the visor and while visor is not fogging up, my sunglasses do :) how do people deal with that?

Option 1. Try it in freefall.
Option 2. Try the 2 different mouth pieces that come with the G3, and try without any mouth padding (in freefall).
Option 3. Try different sunglasses that fit properly under your $300+ helmet.
Option 4. Get a tinted lens and stop using sunglasses.
Option 5. (Not recommended, but this is the route I took.) Jump it for 500+ jumps, put it on the ground when packing, drop it occasionally, forcefully shove it in your dz locker 5 days/week, accidentally close the chin strap in the visor every other time you land, get kicked in the head all the time doing 4way, forget to close the visor on a bunch of jumps (until breakoff, while tracking, when sunglasses rattle and you notice the movement); then the hinges are worn and you might have a 2mm gap between the bottom of the helmet and the visor, providing enough airflow to prevent fogging... that's what works for me. 600 jumps in the 12+ months since I got my G3. No fogging, lots of wear.

Haha Sammielu, I'll try your option 5 lol :)

I am using the thinner foam insert in the helmet cause I feel like in the event of impact it provides a little bit of extra cushioning. I also close it right before exit and open right after opening.

I am using pretty well fitting glasses but never tried them in freefall, don't want to struggle with fogging in the middle of the jump.
