Review: This is a very nice mask for a great price. For $50 you get many options typically found on higher end masks or that require an additional purchase, such as the fan. I picked mine up to have as a back-up and loaner mask.

These goggle aren't the most comfortable on my head. The cut of this mask around the ear guards bend in such a way that they rub behind my ear while I play. I have never experienced this with any other mask I've worn. They fit my 12 year old cousin really great, as his head is smaller than mine. I recommend you try them on first.

The chin guard area could have been extended down a bit, the coverage is lacking a bit down there.

The fan is a great feature that typically costs extra with other goggle companies. it works well and does clear fog. That being said it is a tad on the noisy side. If you're playing speedball you probably wouldn't notice it nearly as much, but in the woods, while sneaking around, you will lose some ability to hear what;s going on around you.

The lens itself is also nice. It is actually a double pane thermal lens, not some single pane "thermal" lens with some anti-fog coating. I've yet to have an issue with fogging with these lenses. Field of vision is fine.

The visor works well. The straps stay put when you adjust them.
Conclusion: This is a good mask, with great features, at a price significantly less than other masks on the market with similar features. This is a perfect mask to get a first time younger player.

I would recommend this mask to anyone looking for decent performance while trying to stay on budget.

As with any mask, try them on first and make sure they fit you properly!!

8 out of 10 because I think they should have been a bit more generous in the cut of the mask behind the ears and in the chin.
