Review: This was my first mask so I did not think bad of it (mostly cuz I didn't know much about paintball at that time). The truth is that there are alot of flaws in this mask. One is the crappy color it comes in; I have yet to see this mask in another color. The color is somewhat of a puke green mixed with baby crap (but this is all my opinion). Second of all is the fogging you have to deal with, I had this mask for about a year and it didn't fog until about the second time of use. I was breathing hard and the damn thing wouldn't stop fogging up no matter how many times I cleaned it. The fog clears up fairly fast, but by that time you would have exhaled again and made the fog even worse. One time I had to sit out for a few games and let the fog clear up for awhile before I could use it again. On top of looking lame and not being able to see you have to deal with the terrible foam padding. Its not squishy at all and soaks up maybe a drop or two of sweat.; and in my opinion its quite itchy. On the plus side however its cheap and affordable, I pick one up for about $20 at the local pro-shop. Also paintballs tend to bounce off the rubber guarding that surrounds the mouth and acts as a crappy vent system. I was hit there a number of time one game from about 10 feet away and 1 out of about 7 didn't pop.
Conclusion: I advise not to get this mask at all (spend $10 more and get the Headsheild). This mask is and will always be a rental mask in my book.
