Icon Variant Helmet Breathbox
I cannot praise this device enough
Awesome idea, very clever implementation, gets the job done and looks cool while doing it. I can even crawl my boom mic into this and since it's a perfect enclosure it actually provides a very silent environment to talk. People cannot tell that I am calling them from my bike!
And yes, if you mount it correctly and squeeze the nose tip adjuster properly, it does prevent fogging. I ride at < 20F (down to 9F) trust me, I know.

Good product but could use some revision
I got this because I wanted to use my variant helmet for Snowmobiling. It works generally pretty well but still has some issues.
1. The way it is inserted is in the 2 front vents making it impossible to close them making it quite cold in freezing temperatures. It honestly isn't that bad but it would be nice if we could shut those vents without duct taping them before inserting the breath box.
2. It doesn't fog at all but it still does have condensation on the inside of the visor. It does a much better job then without any breath box at all but I had to crack the visor so some of the condensation would go away. Again, its better than nothing but it needs to make more of the air OUT rather than go down and come back up.
3. Not loving the price tag, $30? Come on Icon. Wish they would've dropped the price $10 but its just $10, whatever.
Overall I love the look of it and it performs great in mildly cold weather but could definitely use some revision for those cold rides.

Does the trick!
I can't say it's the best value but it works very well, drops right in, and is easy to fit to your face.

Fits perfectly, looks nice and really drives down your breath, contributing to avoid visor fogging.
Icon logo is too beautiful to be hidden when installed... pity!
One issue may show up on winter, since the two frontal vent slots have to remain open in order to allow the device to be attached to the helmet. If it is too cold we would probably have to remove the device in order to close those vents. Let's wait for the winter and test it...

Good product, but not worth $30
Usually with Icon products, you get what you think you paid for. This was a little flimsier than I had pictured. Their stuff is usually pricey but fantastic and high , high quality. But honestly, this thing does what it should. It should just do it for $15.
