Review: Other than having to read the instructions on how to install the visor once you take it off, which tell you what to do but still don't make it easy, this is a pretty great mask.. Their website has a video walkthrough if the written instructions aren't enough.

Mine does not have the thermal goggle, but it's still pretty tough to get it to fog up. I've played in some really hot weather, and the only thing I've had to worry about so far is sweat running in my eyes, which isn't really the mask's fault.

It's fairly flexible, and I could wear it all day. Last week I was walking around for about ten minutes after a game with it on because I simply forgot it was there. That being said, it does echo a little when you talk, so if you've got something to say, make sure it's something you can say loud.

EDIT 3/2/07: Picked up an amber thermal lens for it. Man, if you don't have one, you really need to get it. It's no good for night games but during the daytime it's absolute dynamite.

EDIT 9/10/07: I got a chance to play a couple games with a friends Profiler the other day. It is a very nice mask, but I don't like it as much as this one. It had the same thermal amber lens I've got, but somehow it didn't seem to bring out the shadows the way mine does. Also, the Profiler feels looser, like it's too far away from my face. Strapped down tight, I have enough room to stuck my whole hand between my face and my mask, and I've got a big head. I like how the Vents tucks up nice and close to my face.

Story/comparison time:
The reason I got to use the Profiler is because my friend got hit in the forehead, leaving a nasty lump. Looked like someone had surgically implanted three quarters under the skin. The cool looking bat-wing upper edge of the Profiler's brow shield let a ball right through and hit right on the forehead. We put my mask on his head and it covered his whole face, forehead included, so we swapped masks for the rest of the day. I know it has no relevance on the actual mask but the thing smelled like cheese, so maybe that has something to do with why I'm not too fond of it. It is probably worth noting, though, that I didn't seem to have the same kind of forehead exposure problem my friend did. He also said that my mask didn't have enough nose room for his liking, but he's got a fairly significant proboscis. On the other hand, I felt his Profiler had too much face room.
Conclusion: Bottom line: this is a very comfortable, cheap mask that provides excellent protection and even manages to look cool. Definitely worth it. I'm giving it a ten because of the quality you get for the cash you put down.
