Strengths: First of all, this mask brings some serious intimidation into play at the field :-) I believe in EVERY advantage and that is definitely a big one. Second, it fits perfectly around my eyes and nose and doesn't slip at all, very comfortable and doesn't feel like it's smashing my face. Third, The lens design is sweet, I ordered mine and at the same time ordered a blue mirror lens and this thing is beautifull. It is VERY close fitting and gives a nice low profile. The air flow is great! I don't know about the whole "paint deflection" thing, but i can breathe easily in the mask.
Weaknesses: The foam is glued in with some nasty, prickley adhesive. That stuff gets hard and can poke the heck out of you. Pull it out and get new foam and use shoe goo to glue it in, much better. The decal up front needs to be shoe-goo'd too. The thermal lenses are very PAINFUL to replace, and it isn't easy to clean the inside of the lens. Not much upper coverage, wear a hat under it.
Conclusion: I would definitely recommend the mask to my friends. There are a few workmanship issues when you take it out of the bag, but a little time spent will yield great results with this mask. It does flex a lot and will allow cheek hits to smack you, but thats just the way it goes, get over it :-) Overall this mask is great and will fit most peaople very well. If you're used to wearing a "whole-head" helmet, this mask might seem a bit skimpy to you. Try it out first if you can.
