Lets sound through
Hard to remove the glass.
I went to my local paintball shop to try various masks, as I was determined to put some money into getting a decent mask. The Invision mask was sold from the moment I put it on - a very tight fit with good view of the surroundings. The mask looks good and feels good. The closest i've come to fog is when a ball hit the lens ;-)
The tightness brings me to what's - in my opinion - the only drawback: Removing the lens is rather cumbersome. I knew this in advance, because I've seen others mention it on this site, but didn't care. I didn't intend to remove the lens anyway, alas I forgot about cleaning :-) It's no biggie though, just remember that if you get a few solid hits on the lens you might have to spend 10-15 minutes on the cleaning instead of 2-3.
Some people seem to worry about their chin, but in my opinion that's rubbish. I've got a reasonably long face but it's not a problem what so ever. So what if I should get a ball in the chin? It hasn't happened yet, and I can think of worse places to be hit!
Don't get me wrong.. I love the mask! I don't really mind spending some time cleaning the equipment, so it's no big deal to me. Just bear in mind that you'll need some time on the maintenance here. It's not as easy as the JT goggles - but it's way cooler :)
Try it out , and if it fits your head too; buy it!
