Review: I've had this mask for a year now and have had much experience with it. The vision it gives is great, you don't even see the mask in your field of view. Fogging is rare, only has happened twice, once during a mild, misty rain, and once right after a storm. The design of the mask sends all of your sweat from the foam down to the bottom od the front of a mask, so it acts as a drain, I think this is what helps prevent the fogging. The mask also offers a unique look, and I get many comments on, and off, the field. However, this great mask does not come without it's problems. I play speedball alot, and I'm always running around. The Gladiator is very big and bulky, so it shakes a lot and bounces around. Once during a dive to the snake, the mask competely POPPED OFF OF MY HEAD!!! At the time I was being fired upon by an Ironmen timmy so splatter was going all over my face. Constantly I have to adjust the mask during games, which takes up valuable time that I could use loading my hopper. The mask does not come with a chin strap which worsens this problem. If you have I big head, I guess this wouldn't be a problem. The large lense also gives away I bad glare. I know this because I have to friends that use them and one is a big time scenario baller. lol however his mask makes him easy to spot even with his camo gear (he's getting the predator kit for it). Without a doubt, I big factor in this review is in the price. Rarely do you get a fogless mask with great vision for $40.
Conclusion: If you have a large head, or at least you get one that feels VERY tight, go ahead and grab one. The vision is great, the lack of fogging, unique look (all the other masks look the same), and the great price help to balance this out. However, the lack of maneuverability this mask has caused me from the size forces me to lower the rating
