Review: Plain and simple, this is one of, if not the best masks ever made. I heard about it though TechPB's own, Mike Phillips. It's his mask of choice and many of the other TechPB staff use this mask. It's very lightweight and fits great on the head, but the best part is the field of vision. When you put the mask on, it's like you're not even wearing a mask. It doesn't restrict your peripheral vision at all, which is great. Another great thing is the fact that it won't fog up the first few uses. There's some sort of spray on the lens that will keep it from fogging up to bad, unless you're playing in some crazy humidity.



It's not one of those masks you can just whipe down and say "it's clean" with. Because of all the ventilation holes on the front and side, you have to take it all appart to clean. Kinda sucks when you get goggled and you have to do it there on the field.

Swapping out the lenses are a pain as well. While it sounds easy on paper (move a few tabs), it's not. Most of the parts don't like getting put back together and you often end up putting a scratch in your lens just trying to get the damn thing in.


Conclusion: This is an awesome mask for anyone who plays paintball. From airball to woodsball, this should be your next mask of choice. Great lense, great body, and while it can be hard to take appart, it's well worth it. When you see that rogue enemy player at your far nine ( a place you can't see with many masks), you'll know what I'm talking about.

I do agree with GryphisOne about changing lenses, but at first only. The switch goggle strap is very stiff at first and gets a lot easier to change over a few times of doing it. It isnt a pain once it gets broken into. Plus do you think Mike from PBtech would use this if it was a pain to change the lens?
