Review: I used to paintball 3 years ago, and quit. Now that I'm back in the game, my buddy told me to buy this mask. Said, mask wise, it'll be the best investment ever. He was right. Pros and Cons are below.

Pros

Comfort - This mask is super comfy. fits like a glove and doesn't move when you run or when you get lit up. Stay where you put em and don't move until you make em move. My only beef is with the padding behind the ears, was easily fixed and will be elaborated below.

Great Protection - These things offer some awesome protection. I actually don't mind getting gogged with this as you can't feel it. On the odd occassion you can get bounces off the visor.

Lenses Don't Fog - This doesn't need elaborating, this goggles are known for this.

Looks Pimp - I've heard people talking about how these look like something the military would wear. Forget that, they look pimp! The vents in the front for breathing look great, add the smooth lines from the mask to the ear piece, big eyes and the visor. UNBEATABLE!

Many Upgrades Available - There are many upgrades available for these. Fans, frames, lenses, ear pieces, visors, foam and straps. Could build a whole new mask!

Cons

Padding Behind The Ears - This was my only beef and here's why. I where an old baseball cap backwards when I play. The hard foam around the ears put so much pressure on my head that it would actually give me headaches. I fixed it by setting up the straps so they will still stay on my head, but I used a knife and cut down the padding until I could wear them without getting headaches. Simple.
Conclusion: My final conclusion is that if your in the market for a new mask, why get a Proteus or other high end JT masks when you can get this which is light, comfortable, looks good and will protect you in the midst of a firefight? Exactly. 9/10 For the foam.
