Review: I bought these skins when i was painting my Elite Headshield camo, and adding a green goggle frame, and straps. I wanted to get as much of my mask camo as possible cause i'm a woodsball sniper.

These skins seemed like a great idea so i went ahead and ordered them online. A few days later they arrived and i set to installing them.

First off, the skin did not fit over the entire lens, there are gaps around the sides and you simply have to figure out how you want to put it on. Secondly, you cannot pull this off and re-attach it if you jack it up, and its really hard to apply this evenly without getting a few bubble or creases on it.

I finally got it on, but now had to wait the 3 day period for it to completly set in before i could use it.

When i got it out to the field, everyone was very intimidated with myself becuase of the skins. I got alot of comments like "i'm on his team" and things like that.

When i got out to the woods for the first game and finally put my mask on, i didn't think that that skinz would degrade my vision very much... I WAS WRONG!!! even though it looks like sticking your face up to a screen door, it takes away from your vision. I was having a very difficult time making out minute details because the skinz were getting in the way.

Also when i tried to use my 4X30 scope (yes i scope when i snipe) all i could see was the criss cross pattern of the skins reflecting back at me.

Next we tried to play speedball, and i was getting out almost right off the bat every game because it was taking me that extra second or two to focus on spools to see if there was anyone crouching behind them.

Finally i just got pissed and peeled the skin off, it left a little residue from the adhisave, but i simply took some cleaner spray and it wiped right off.

Speaking of which... if you have skinz and you get hit in the goggle, I hope you brought a spray bottle, because wiping and even blotting just smear the paint all over your goggles and make it an even bigger pain in the butt to clean.
Conclusion: I really can't recommend using this product, it was a good idea, and i was willing to give it a try, but when it comes to paintball, if you cant see, you are going to get killed.

I'll give it a 3 cause they do look intimidating, and it was a good try.
