Review: I was thoroughly impressed with this mask right out of the box. Clean fit, not too "alien", excellent vision. The tint also isn't too dark or light. I was able to play all day and night at a scenario game a couple weeks back and had no vision issues. Ton of positives for it's lightweight and breath-ability. Hasn't fogged on me yet. Great ventilation and doesn't get hot.

As far as negatives, the mirror (grey version for mine) is nice, but tends to scratch. I currently have a paintball sized ring/scratch on the lens from when I got shot from about 30 feet away. It's faintly noticeable, but I can see a blur if I try to look out that part of the mask. Luckily it's just below eye level, so It generally doesn't affect me.
Conclusion:
In the end, I'd steer away from the mirrored version and go for something less prone to damage. I'm in the process of obtained one of the photochromatic lenses or just the standard gray lens for day play and maybe an amber for night play. I'll keep these for extreme sun, which is definitely possible for Florida summer play, but a couple more shots to the goggle and I would probably toss these.
