Much better than a hood

  • By Stephen from Albuquerque NM USA on Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Better than the Hood

  • By Hannah from Madison WI USA on Tuesday, October 18, 2016
  • Pros: Easy on and off
  • Cons: A little awkward over glasses
  • Review: The foggles are definitely easier to use in instrument training than the hood; they're easier to take on and off without having to take your whole headset off. They still sit sort of weird if you wear glasses, but they provide a more realistic sense that you're in the soup than the hood.

Good product but I modified them anyway

  • By MJ from Livermore CA USA on Wednesday, October 28, 2009
  • Pros: Well made and they work good.
  • Cons: See review.
  • Review: As most folks know Foggles are a good product, nonetheless they have two bad design flaws. 1) They are not headset friendly and the ends will dig into your head behind your ears. 2) Yellow lenses are horrible to look through and when the sun hits the fogged out portion of the clear lenses it defusses the light and darn near blinds you. I don't have the answer to number 1, but created a great fix for number 2. I taped off every area of the glasses that was not fogged out and painted the rest flat black. 100% better, no more glare.

They get the job done

  • By A Customer from NJ USA on Monday, November 26, 2007
  • Pros: They allow you to see the insturments and block as much as the outside as can be expected.
  • Cons: It makes it a little louder because they break the seal of the headset, but it is no worse than sunglasses
  • Review: They are great at limiting your view. In the Cherokee 140 I have been flying you can see a sliver of the window. They will reduce the noise cancellation of your over-ear headset since it will break the seal, but it is the same as wearing sunglasses. It is about everything you can expect from foggles.

There may be a better way...

  • By Randy from Grayson GA USA on Tuesday, January 06, 2009
  • Pros: Nice price. Stayed in place.
  • Cons: Clear pair expldes light when flying into the sun. Not very comfortable/distracting with my Serengetti aviator sunglasses.
  • Review: They do the job nicely. Were everything they were advertised to be. There may be a better product out there for the money but I don't know what it is. I will probably take dark tape and cover the frosted areas because when flying into the sun I was unable to see the panel. The frosting explodes the sunlight and washes everything out in front of you. My sunglasses underneath were cumbersome and were distracting from all the important things I was trying to learn and do.

Beats the hood

  • By Thomas from Cibolo TX USA on Tuesday, May 19, 2009
  • Pros: light weight, small
  • Cons: breaks headset seal when used with glasses
  • Review: A substantial substitute to using the hood. If you wear glasses, they can be slightly uncomfortable, but the foggles allow airflow across your face, where the hood restricts not only visibility, but airflow as well. If you have issues getting air sick under the hood, this is the cure.
