Review: I've had this mask for a very long time and I rarely have trouble with it. It has EXCELLENT face coverage, paint is easy to clean, and it is comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Plus, it has that old-school look that I heartily approve of. The lens hardly fogs at all, no matter the temperature. It doesn't get too hot inside, either. The lens can be tough to remove, but it's a quick swap after you do it once. In addition, it's very well constructed, which isn't something you can say about all masks of this vintage. And best of all, this bucket of magnificence is available for a pittance.

There are some downsides, however. Some may scoff at the fact that you have to assemble it when you first get it, but I doubt that there are hardly any in the world today that remain unassembled. And it isn't like it's difficult to put together anyway. Secondly, the hard plastic ears are sometimes irritating when you raise your mask. Third, some people who like thermal lenses won't like the stock lens.

Conclusion: For this price point, this is one of the best masks around. However, I recommend boosting your budget and going for a Vforce Vantage or Pro Vantage instead. These are more comfortable to wear and easier to live with. This does come free with older Tippmann packages, so if you're planning on picking one up, or if you see one of these masks up for sale, I highly recommend you to pick one up.
