Review: Vision
The Spectra Gives a Full Line Of Vision as Most Basic Masks will. I Think Its Double Lens (Not 100% Sure) So Its Not a Full On Cheapo Mask Even Though Its a Great Price. Although this mask does sometimes fog up on me but under harder conditions such as: Sweating,Extreamly Heavy Breathing, Cold Weather, or Other Natraul Causes. Rest Assure, this mask doesnt just MAGICALLY FOG UP! I Recommend You Go And Spend 3 Dollers on Some Anti Fog Spray, It Really Truely Helps.

Light
Comparing to my Invision, the material seems to be lighter weight. When I am using these it feels like nothing is their besides on the eye peice. While on subject of what its made out of, I must say, the Spectra gets hella lot of bounces unless your that unlucky person to get it on the open mouth.

Safe
This was my first mask and I didnt respect my own gear as much as I should have, but after using them from time to time within a 3 year basis, their is no cracks or stress marks. I Have dropped them numourus times and still no damage.

Breathable
This could be good and bad, due to the massively big holes near mouth peice means that all your hot, dirty breath leaves the mask. Although that is good, their is also a dark side to this; If you get shot in the mouth and it is open....Lets hope it is one of those $120 bannana paintballs. Breathing ussally wont fog these up but sweating will. I fully recommend you to wear a hat or a bandana of some sort, as your sweat will wet up the foam and get trapt in the inner lense...in result....Foggination.

Comfy
Aint The Best But Far From Being the Worst. Theirs Foam surrounding the Eyes, and Ears, it seems liek its layered up 2 but whatever, I dont really care how many layers long as its good feeling.

Strap
Well The JT Strap itself is extreamly comfy and has little geleton holds to stick to your head i guess but the Spectras Hold Kind of Sucks. You have to readjust your strap atleast 2 times a day (For Me That Is) Not to big of a deal, one of the minor problems that you get with a cheap mask.
Conclusion: Great Mask! Mainly for New Recreational Players but If Your Serious about Playing Then You Might Want To Save up for One of those worth While Expensive Masks (In My Opinion Atleast) But For The Mask, I Must Say It Is Great For The Price.

I have this mask and it is a thermal. You can tell if you take the lens out of the frame - it has a black line around the edge of the lense which is a layer of foam used to separate the panes.

BTW this is an excellent mask, very good value for money, never lets me down.

Ok Thanks again marmot, I wasnt to sure because I have only used this mask like 7 times and fully stripped it twice with only a little knowledge when I was new.

I Double What Marmot Says about this being a good mask (Not like I would have ever thought of just saying that in the review xD)

---Edit--- Wow I double that thanks marmot, I still am stupid about masks as I just learned that the black line in my Invision is just foam, truthfully I had no clue what it was so thanks
