Review: I got this mask when I first started, and it did ok. Like, when I got it out of the box. I played about 3 months before I got the thermal lens. And for those three months, I would be found behind a bunker wiping the inside. So I mean, the lens that came with it was terrible. And when I say terrible, I mean terrible. It only stopped paintballs from my eyes, and nothing more.

The plastic is pretty hard. I have gotten a few bounces, but for the most part, the hits on the sides of my face usually pop. Also, the ventilation could be better. But, it stops paint for the most part.

I don't use the chin strap, Ehh, I don't know why, but it just doesn't appeal to me. Also, the head strap isn't all the most comfortable, but it does suffice.

The lens change is pretty hard, but once you do it once, you'll know what to do. It's not the easiest, but it's a pretty tough process. One thing that you want to do, though, BUY THE THERMAL LENS!!! Or, you can get the JT Flex7 I think. It's about $30 at Dick's, and it comes with the thermals. I got the thermal lens for Christmas, but I payed for the mask myself.

$15+$20=$35 spent on my mask. I should've gotten better. -_-
Conclusion: Found at Wal-Mart, not the best, but just get the thermals, or a better mask. It's up to you. Pretty much the only reason I got it is because I left my other mask, which I borrowed from my friend, at my house, and I was already half-way to the field. So, it's you call!
