Wondered when some type of face protection enhancement might take place. New LSU helmet with extended Splash Shield. Would appear hot and probably fog up

Will it not steam up? They could have at least added breathing holes like some of those fancy face masks I see online.

If you look carefully you will see that there are air gaps on the edges of the face mask (where the strap goes through and just below it. I don't think it will steam up that much they don't in hockey which is probably the sport they got the design from.

Some do in hockey but you can apply a product to it that prevents it from fogging up.

I still think it will fog up with that in the south.

Bauer and CCM make shield masks, but they are much more open

I grew up in Massachusetts playing hockey and using a shield mask - there is an anti fog product that you apply, but since hockey is played in 30 degree rinks, fogging usually was not an issue 

I can not imagine it working well on a 90+ degree football field anywhere south of Pennsylvania

Yep, my current helmet has this exact one. I still have to spray it down if I am playing old man hockey indoors or it does fog. I think some people get hotter than others and this impacts the fog (my son’s shield is never sprayed down). Pond hockey is easier as the condensation simply freezes. The bigger issue for hockey is getting scratches and marks on the shield (if you play a lot they don’t typically last past a season or two). In terms of football, I agree I think this would be an issue for some football players outside.
