Review: This is a great mask! Hasn't fogged on me once (playing in Southern California) and is well-ventilated enough, that w/o a fan... my glasses haven't fogged over either. Did I mention, it fits well over glasses? I had a cheap JT mask, that made my glasses fit at about a 30 degree angle... but with the Proto, its fit flawless. The lens area, is well shaped and large. Gives you a very large/wide field-of-view.

Only complaint, is that the lenses seem to scratch pretty easy. A quick change system however, makes it a snap to swap it out.

EDIT: Horrible fogging problem this past weekend. Don't know why, as previous use did not. It was slightly hotter, but not by much. However, out the break on the 1st game... I'm suddenly blind. Glasses fogged over and goggles were literally dripping with condensation almost instantly. Made for a very poor day. If you wear glasses... you best buy the fan and do it ASAP.

2ND EDIT: Bought the fan for this. It is NOISY. It also has to be running from the time you pull your mask down. It is not something that will DEfog your mask. However... it does its job. Plus, once you're in the heat of a game... the noise isn't as distracting as I thought it would be. If you play in warm-weather climates, the fan is definately a must-have with this mask.
Conclusion: Would recommend this mask to anyone looking for the best deal for the money. You will not be disappointed.

Gave it a 9 because of the neck coverage. But, just get in the habit (which you should already) of keeping your head down. Don't want your neck to be exposed anyways.
