Review: I had earlier had the Jt Proflex, and believed it was the cream of the crop. However, the only things I didn't like were:
1: The ears! The ears on the original Proflex didn't cover my ears all the way sometimes, especially when running around and diving everywhere. I got shot in the ear once, and from then on vowed to find a solution.
2: The plastic bottom! The bottom is almost too thin to be comfortable, and is way too wide for a human face. Also, if you leave it sitting for a while, the bottom gets even wider!

FYI: Both masks are EXTREMELY comfortable! Also, both masks have the same lens; only the body differs. Therefore, neither mask will fog. Ever. I've even done high school track practice (sprinter) in this thing, and NO FOG whatsoever! And trust me, you will probably never work harder in a 20 - minute paintball game with this mask on.

However, with this new Proflex Revolution, all my problems have been solved!
1: The new Ears! They are so comfortable, being made of rubber with ventilation, and cover my entire ear and more. I no longer have to worry about a bleeding earlobe, and deafness. Also, the chinstrap helps the mask not wobble around at all.
2: The rubber bottom! The new bottom is not as wide, and is more streamlined. However, do not worry. I have a big head compared to others, and this mask cover every bit of it. No more worrying about a split, bleeding chin; or a nasty forehead welt. This covers ALL!
I mean, isn't that why we wear masks? So we AREN'T bruised or bleeding near the face?
Conclusion: Overall, I would recommend this mask to anyone who want full protection, extreme comfort, and doesn't like bleeding or bruising near the face. It is a full protection mask; unlike those other ones that leave the chin exposed. This means that anyone over the age of 14 should love this mask, or those with a big head. However, it does not fit as tight on little kids (13 & below), so if you're that age, and don't have a big head, wear the chinstrap. However, if you've ever waited to put on your mask until last because it's uncomfortable, fogs, doesn't vent, ect... Wait no longer. The Proflex Revolution is here, and can solve ALL those problems!
