okay starting tomorrow I will be adding a fan/ rebreather to my armor. this will have two cpu fans and a 18v battery in it that will be on a switch to turn off and on, i will post the WIP starting tomorrow. the main idea for this is after testing my helmet out i found out that i fog up to much and it is hot. so add a intake and a outtake and you have fresh air moving with a cooling effect.

The fog and heat problems are a constant battle too.  The heat problem is nearly impossible to really resolve without being in cold weather.  Any fans you put in there will help, but not a whole lot.  The idea of putting a larger more powerful fan in a backpack and then somehow piping the air into the bucket has been something I've seen a few try, but so far, to my knowledge, no one has reported success...  maybe you can be the first? 

However, it is very possible to solve the fog problem with the fans.  I did it by putting 2 small 12v computer fans inside my bucket each running off their own 9v battery.  I modified them to suck in fresh air from the outside through some vents I cut in the front of my bucket and blow across the visor.

Here are a couple pics of what I did:

Outside vents, cut into either side of the visor area of bucket front mid way down the "T"


Inside the bucket, the placement of the fans, batteries, and switches.

I don't see why it couldn't look like a breather system.  Just dress it up a little with some greebs and it should be fine.   ;D

okay up date i will have to make a small change to the system but i think i have it right. air blows out hard and sucks air in very well. battery seems to last a long time. once i adjust the hose length i think i will have it right. more to come

This is an interesting build.  I have thought about something similar, especially after the 4th or July parade this year!

I am very curious to see how this goes!   ;)

okay from playing around with the fans i have now figured out how to get more air pressure into the hose, what one needs to do is make a funnel around the out-put fan, by doing this this will channel the airflow right into the hose. will be testing this on the weekend.

unless that paint brush is absolutely huge, It looks like that toy is quite small.  You may be looking at having to add a bunch to make it look of a reasonable size as a pack.  What ever happened to your other pack idea?

grounding issues on the back if you look at the pic the back piece to my helmet is in the pic. it takes up a good part of my back. i will be adding two air flow pieces and two fans into the body. then attaching it to the back plate. one that is down the on off switches will be a belt clip and I will greebie them up.
