Oh yes, it has a grill, it's just that when the snorkel is ploughing through the foliage on tight lanes it's all going to get sucked in.

I meant to add that snorkels arn't really designed to operate in greenlanes, they're ultimately designed for wading and desert conditions, not for being pushed through bushes

P.s do you find the snorkel aids cool air in day to day driving? What about torrential rain does it pull in much water?

You get cooler air in the snork being higher up(why they fit then in hot climates ,also away from "some" dust)

Torrential rain has never been a problem no matter how bad with it facing forward.The head has channels in to drain away any water.

If very dusty/dry as it can be on some lanes ,I would turn head back as it can gather inside as I found out after a very dry dusty peaks run.Mine has always been forward facing for a few year,issue free(apart from dust once) but like 1st post if dense with leaves its wise to turn head back Very Happy
