Easily the best purchase I have made so far. I got tired of my mask fogging, and having to spray lens cleaner on my mask after every few matches so my mask wouldn't fog. Once I got the thermal lens system fogging has completely stopped for me. I have been using this type of lens for over a year now and it has given me no problems what so ever. I've played in the rain, 90* weather, 30* weather, and not had any fogging at all.
The only problem that did come up was when getting hot, or raining very hard, sweat/water will run off the inside of your mask onto the lens, which I suspect would happen with every mask.
As for cleaning the mask, taking the lens out of the mask was quite a task. Prying and grunting were both required. I ended up taking a hobby knife and slitting the holes a little so the teeth would go in and come out more easily.
The mask provides excellent protection for me (i have a thin face), and does not cause my ears to ring or hurt my face when getting shot in the head.
This is an excellent mask. I know pro players who use it because it is so reliable. It never fogs. The mask is relatively cheap at around 30$. I'm giving it a nine because the lenses are so difficult to put in. I would definitely recommend.
9 out of 10
