Greetings!

Does anybody have any idea how much a Vents Predator mask in very good
condition would go for, or how much it would cost to purchase one?  I've
noticed a few people saying good things about them.  Let's assume the lens
has to be replaced.

Take care of yourself...

Alan.

Vents Predators are no longer produced (afaik). i believe the Rage masks
are still available, between $40 and $60 (new). This includes goggles,
hard face protection, and closed cell foam padding armor for the rest of
the head and throat. Sometimes they can be had with an extra lens (usually
tinted).

To my knowledge no one makes replacement lenses for the Predator masks, so
if it needs a new lens you're pretty much SOL. Leave the old lense in and
hang it on the wall as a conversation piece. (i wouldn't play in it with
an old lense)

I've seen *one* place here that had a "new" set of Vents for sale, but
they wanted as much for a set of Spectras. I might know a place locally
that might have lenses, most likely for the "Rage". I know one guy here
who has a set of original lenses for the "Predators", even prism
thermal.

In their time, they were the best. I still firmly believe that if they
didn't shut down, they would still be dominating the market and JT
wouldn't be as big as they are today. No one has even come close to the
amount of protection they offered.

There's a few places that may have lenses, but tourney's probably won't
allow them since Scott stopped making the lenses, they can't be approved
now.

They retailed for about 70 new and the lenses were about 30 new.  That's
going back some time though.  About the only place youwould find them and
lenses would be ebay or some other auction thing.  What they're going for
used i don't know.  They did offer the most protection and looked pretty
cool especially with the mirrored lense.

The Vents Predator hasn't been made for quite a long time now..
When Vents went under Scott bought them and made the Vents Rage goggle for
awhile....
The Rage lenses do not fit the Predators Safely..

When the predators were in production Vents recommended changing your lens any
time you took a hit to the lens or at least once every year even without a
hit. They explained this 'time' limit was due to the fact that the material
the lens was made of started to deteriorate (dry, ect, like any plastic does)
as soon as they were produced. So even if you find lenses "New" in the package
they are still years old and they are Not safe to be used at this point (for
quite a while now actually).
They were great goggles and I still have all minefor nostagia sake, but they
are just not safe for use anymore...

Stinks.. but don't take the chance!!.. get a new pair with current lenses..

Good luck
Charles
