Review: This is my back-up mask. I've rarely used it because I vastly prefer my Elite X-Fire over the Proflex.

The main things you need out of a mask are:

Protection:
This mask protects pretty much just the fron of your face and your chin. You forehead and nexk are completely exposed and the little "flap things" that wrap around your face are rediculous as far as protection goes.

Vision:
The standard JT Lens is garbage, it just fogs up like any other standard lens. They sell these "Zero Fog" inserts...don't waste your $10, they DON'T work!! Not at ALL. They are actually more of a hazard because they can come loose inside your goggles and bounce around in there. JT does have a replacement thermal lens, which I have on both my X-Fire and Proflex, works like a charm!

The field of view is limited compared to newer style goggles. These are older style, so you're not going to get the 180 degree view you can get with some of the newer goggles/lenses.

Style:
Okay, I guess the mask "looks" cool. It has a visor...which most people take off.

Other:
Weight, it's light...can barely feel that it's on. It's difficult to change lenses. It's difficult to clean.
Conclusion: It's not much of a mask, but it's definitely a step up from a Scott or Brass Eagle mask. I can't really score it very high given the only real plus of the mask out of the box is that it's light.
Rating:
3 out of 10
