This has been my primary mask for about 7 years. I've modified it my adding a couple computer fans to the top of the goggles that run off 9V batteries and supply a bit of air through the top of the goggles to mainly keep my glasses from fogging.
This mask is affordable, but the key strength is protection. It's big and it's not "stylish"...so you won't win "Agg player of the month" for wearing it. BUT...it protects your face, your ears, your neck (mostly), and your forehead. Very few, if any, masks avaialble (even today) provide the protection that this mask does. And, it's durable. I should know, I've been abusing it for over 7 years.
Now, the drawbacks. Difficult to get the lens in and out. Field of vision is limited. It's ugly and you might take an extra mask hit from time to time because there is more of a profile to it. It's also heavy, feels like it's falling off your face sometimes. And the stock lens is garbage, just like any non-thermal lens. You'll need to buy the thermal lens for it for the mask to work well for you. I've been through 2-3 thermal lenses, had no problems with my mask lens fogging (just my glasses).
Not a better mask for the money. FAR superior to Scott and Brass Eagle masks. Thermal lens is a MUST! But I've got to give this mask a high mark, despite it's numerous drawbacks, because it does what a mask is supposed to do, it PROTECTS you...VERY WELL.
