Good field of vision
Have yet to fog up
Quick and easy lens replacement
Poor coverage of neck, lower jaw and top of forehead.
Lenses stain with some paint.
While this mask looks cool and provides a very low profile it also provides rather mediocre protection. Don't believe the hype about bounces, there is no perceptible difference between this mask and others in that department. After playing against someone with pink fill paint I noticed little pink stains on my lenses, this may be a fluke as I've never heard of this happening to anyone else. On another occasion a ball hit the upper part of the mask and the little deflector thingy that goes on top put the ball right into my scalp; the ball not only broke but drew blood along the front of my scalp, while it didn't really hurt I sure caught hell from my girlfriend. Despite all my complaints I still feel that this is a solid mask, the field of vision is excellent, they're comfortable and the lenses are easy to change.
Given the high price of this mask it really should preform better.
wow, this is probably the first person talk about masks without crying because they got shot in the neck or some other thing, sorry to hear about being shot in the head but you seemed to have sucked it up enough for me not to call you buttercup. lol
I have a huge head and this thing still covers my forehead. My jaw does hang out but I haven't been hit there yet. So if it doesn't cover your forehead then your head is bigger than mine and that is a scary thought.
Dispute: this review is inaccurate because any high end mask doesnt have full coverage of ur lower jaw neck and forehead. take a dye invision or a flex for example. both of these masks have the side of your face and your jaw and your forehead. people make hats and beanies and sandanas for a reason. to cover that area up. if u want full head protection and a foggy lense then get a jt specrea full head cover. and about the lense getting stained from paint thats probly because u dont clean ur lense when u get shot. i have had a profiler for 2 years now and have had the same lense, and it is not stained, if urs is, use windex, its good.
If you read the manual, it tells you not to use windex cause it messes with the thermocure. But if it works for you, thats cool too! Any way. if it stained, this guy obviously didnt clean his mask for about.................5 days. Or he had some craptacular paint.

i had a problem with paint staining the lense too. but the paint stained the inside of my lense. some how a paintball came through the back of my mask and broke on the inside of the lense. there was no paint on the outside, just all over the inside. but thats just one crazy freak accident. im probably the only person on the planet it has happened to. i still love this mask, its the best out there.
doif you were so concerned about forehead coverage then you'd stop being lazy and put the deflector on, and as for the neck a proflex only has a 4/1th inch more neck coverage and an eventz is just as small so your not gonna get any better a mask. As for the lenses I have a small stain from pink paint, you may have gotten a bad pair, just get some new ones.
you can always wear a skimask under the helmet or a balclava(sp?) if youre worried about jaw and neck(which on my face it is almost completely covering) granted the ski mask MIGHT cause a little bit of fogging...but never a full lens.
