Similar
Products Used:
Besides rental masks years ago, I have only used my V-Force Armor. I find it more comfortable.
Marker Setup: Piranha BL VF G3
Strengths: Comfortable
Excellent peripheral vsion
Weaknesses: Removing the lense frame/lens for cleaning.
Review: My fiance has a couple of these. I tried it out and I like it. Especially for it's price. It's relatively light weight, we both found it comfortable, and you get damn near real peripheral vision wearing them. I did find it slightly bulkier than I am used to.

However, I like to remove the lenses to clean them. When I tried removing the lense frame to clean the lens, I had a VERY hard time. The instructions were great, however, the application of said instructions was horrible. They don't give you an indication of how much force you need to use to get it off. Not to mention safety warnings, and precautions.

The foam by the straps ripped off, though it is no big deal. That would be a precaution. The safety warning should include possibility of cutting or breaking your fingers. The plastic is hard, and the force required to seperate the frame from the mask is horrendous. I suceeded once, and that's the only time I'm going to attempt to remove this lens.
Conclusion: I like this mask, but I don't like the difficulty in removing the lens. The product literature says removal is easy. Far from it when you consider you have to remove the lens frame first.

I'll be getting her a V-Force Armor for Christmas. Just so she can be sure her equipment is clean.
