A mask is the most inportant buy for any paintballer, newbie expert or otherwise. I've had three high level masks and this one has worked out the best. It never fogs and I play in the winter all the time. Balls actually bounce off the lenses and lower portion of the mask. The visor reduces glare, but I would sugest a aftermarket tinted lense to help. The feild of vision is huge. The 260 degree claim on the package is realistic. I have read about people having to replace parts of the mask. I have had mine for a year and none of the parts have malfunctioned. Of course after a few shots off the lense I replaced the lense.
The inside is made of some very comfortable material, but unfortunatly it gets wet from sweat and is gross after six or seven games. It doesn't bother me, but some people won't use the mask because of it. Another problem you will read about is changing the lense and cleaning the mask. I love the mask so the time and effort doesn't bother me, but I can see how someone could be aggrivated by it. Finally the price. It lists for something like 95 dollars. You can find it for so much lower, so don't let your wallet convince you this is a bad buy. I got mine online for 55 dollars. You might find it for less.
This is an excellent mask. As long as you can take the time and effort to take care of it(clean/replace parts) but it. If your masks fog up badly in the feild, buy this mask. If you run a lot or play in cold weather, buy it. If you want to look like your the best guy on the feild, but it. Seriously, the mask works great and if deffinetly worth the money effort keeping it nice.
