Tried on Vforce Profiler -Very comfortable and Breathable
Tried on Proto Switch FS- Foam is comfortable, but doesnt fit my face
JT Alpha Radar - not comfortable at all, good protection though (backup)
smart parts linear 14" (old)
smart parts all american 14"

-Restricts breathing a little bit
Basically I got this mask because I was sick of my cheap old JT's foam and impossible lens change, so I decided to try a better-but-still-cheap mask.
The Vforce vantage pro thermal, is an insane mask for the price.
This mask is like 30$ max now-a-days and new lenses are around 10$.
Fit and Comfort:
This mask fits my face very well and the foam is really nice and soft. This mask is not big and bulky like my old JT was, this mask has very good protection while keeping a low profile that wont stick out from bunkers / trees.
The lenses on this mask are very cheap, only about 10$ for clear or tinted thermal coated lenses. The lens changing is insanely easy, you could do it in probably 12 seconds if you really wanted to. The anti fog was very good, but wore off.... This was my fault because I rubbed the inside with a towel. Vforce lenses come clean just by rinsing under water.
The only complaint I have with this mask, is that It can be hard to breathe sometimes. If you look at the profiler, you can see that the part around your mouth is far away from your nose/ mouth, the vantage actually has a "dent" there so it is a little harder to breath in some situations.
With all these great features minus my breathability complaint I would give this mask an 8/10, but for the price I have to give it a 9/10
You could buy this mask and a spare tinted lense for the same price as just a lense from a dye/proto or profiler / grill
9 out of 10
