Ok, you got me, it isn't air conditioning. But it sure feels nice to have a cool fresh clean air blast down over your face and against your body. Also seems to lower the dust in cabin!
I have the Honda full glass windshield, and I left out the giant weatherstrip they supplied for the top edge. Then I noticed there was great airflow through that gap, but all the air was going over my head, up against the inside surface of the roof. So I fashioned some curved deflectors, made a square tube mounting system, and fabricated an operation crank. Just took it out for a test, works great!
Photos attached, hopefully.

I like it, I like it. I have been looking for some way to direct a little air flow to me, and I think you just solved it.
I already have a cross bar installed up there with my VHF radio and intercom system mounted to it. So will probably make two smaller ports.

Thanks, JimmyTalon.

My alternative to the overhead fan. I did not want the extra noise of a fan and wanted to be able to control my air flow.
I am really happy with the adjust ability of these side wing vents and they did not cost me anything, just used material I had laying around...DRK

nice work. I do believe we will see AC more common on UTV's in the future as well as the heat for total comfort

Bought the pop up vents last week and got them installed tonight. Waiting on some correct hardware to make them look better but very happy with them. If I did it over again I would put low profile in front and high profile in rear due to the rear one sitting down in the recess and not getting as much air. They really do push some air in the cab and the venting part where it pulls air out works surprisingly well.

No pic of rear one yet, it only has a few screws holding it in
