Experience:

Products Used:
various Scott masks
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 Custom
CP .689 14" ported barrel
BSA Red Dot sight
Rocket Cock II
ghillie cover
Strengths: Good lenses, difficult to fog.
Weaknesses: Wide profile, loose screws, chin protection, lenses too far from face, ear foam falls out
Review: Everything negative written on these boards was true. The side screws fall out, the ear foam falls out, you could land a jumbo jet on your chin, the chin strap sucks, the lens frame is so far from my face that the nose piece doesn't even touch me (I can stick a finger between my face and the foam), they are very wide (easily 4-6" wider than my Scott), and the ear/temple area is a no-win situation.

I am 5'11" and 155 pounds. It seems like the mask would work well if I were a LOT larger and had a chin like The Tick. Despite the incredible gaps in the foam, I could barely get the goggles to fog even when trying. I can't get the Spectra lens frame to fit any of my other face guards, so I'm out $40 unless I eBay it.
Conclusion: At least where I live, you can't go try on a goggle before buying it. That needs to change. If you're close to my size, I'd avoid this mask. If you're a very large person with a big head, it might work fine. Usually I try to read negative reviews (and perfect reviews) with a grain of salt but in this case, it turns out I should have bought something else.
