Review: Let's start with saying that this is an awesome mask!

What made me buy this one, I have to admit, is the color! The chameleon color i sreally cool! It's not that camo, but hey, if you're a good player that doesn't really matter.

Do you know the movie "Alien"? Well, maybe you remember those aliens called "facehuggers"? That is what this mask is, it really hugs your face and that's why it is so comfortable, it's like you're not wearing a mask at all! With my Scott mask I often felt like wearing a medieval knight mask, because it didn't always stay in place. This one is really a winner when it comes down to comfort. The strap is very easy and effective to adjust. This one always stays in place while running and jumping.

During the last game that lasted for more than 5 hours I did not have any problems with fogging. Plus you have a big field of vision, very cool!

The quality of the material. It's a sort of softer plastic, wich adds to the comfort and also seems better than the harder plastic of some masks. I think it'll last longer.

Also the visor (big one) helps you to cool of, if you tilt your head a little bit up the air comes flowing in and it really refreshes you!

You can also slap on alot of cool upgrades/replacements. Like new straps with cool designs, diff colored lenses (I have yellow fade and chrome orange), fans etc etc.

As for weaknesses...

It's more expensive, but still worth it's price (check eBay, I got mine there for 'bout 50$)

When you want to replace the lens, it's a real pain in the ass. But after doing it twice I got hold of it. But if could've been easier.

Conclusion: Just buy it, I don't think you will regret it! You get alot of impressed looks in between games and you have a high quality comfy mask that gives you clear visibility!
Just replacing lenses is 'somewhat' difficult. But hey...
