Super Comfortable. Has not fogged on me yet. Looks cool. Wide field of vision.
Throat / Jaw Protection. Hearing adjustment thing makes no difference.
Mask offers superior anti-fog technology. It is a pleasure to put it on, I'm a newer player and I've used rental masks and have borrowed friends of mine's lower level masks from JT. This mask blows them COMPLETELY out of the water.
After about an hour of playing you barely notice you have a mask on. It naturally fits around my head and face. i bought the steel blue one and have had refs and other teams comment on how awesome the mask looks.
The Vortex fan easily snaps in underneath the visor.
It offers a 260 degree field of vision which makes a huge difference in peripheral vision. Cleaning the lenses is a snap.
If you are a talker, sound resonates well out of the mouth guard.
The hearing technology bragged about from JT means nothing....it really doesnt.
Another half an inch on the throat and chin protection area would do wonders. If your mouth is open wide your chin is exposed.
True story: I poked my head out of a bunker when a paintball came in from my left and smacked me in the side of my head towards the front. The mask held up great as I didnt feel much pain...but the impact knocked my head backwards....almost instantly another one came in and POW!!! i took one flush right underneath my chin. Another half an inch of mask would have saved me the use of a band aid.
It really is a great mask and would be perfect if it had better jaw and neck protection.
Dont be fooled by high internet prices for this mask. (75-100 bucks)
An awesome mask. The pros definitely outweigh the cons. Excellant mask for all skill levels. Go get it!!!
