Strengths: Review of Raven Nuvis 2.0 in green:
It comes in the best colors ive seen.
Field of View is very good.
Its super light.
Balls will deflect off it, its halfway between flex 7 and spectra plastic in hardness.
Optically correct lens clear as glass.
Can be used 9 out of 12 months of the year in PA right out of the box.
With a visor and photopurple lenses, glare is not a problem ever.
I can take it on and off with one hand.
Weaknesses: The mask does indeed have its problems like the gentlemen below me stated. He definetly has worn this mask in games, unlike some of the other reviews here which are stores just trying to pump this mask.

Is it worth its cost? Probably not, as it does indeed fog during the months of June, July and August in Pennsylvania. Under 50%% humidity conditions and a temp of around 80, it WILL fog. The Thermal replacement lens is another 20.95 plus shipping, so overrall your looking in the 100 to 125 dollar range for this mask. At that range it should perform better then it does Raven, shame on you. Ventilation on the mask is very good however so i must conclude that the reason it fogs is because the foam is so tight to your face that the lens cant use any of it.

There are also sharp edged plastic parts that can be a pain in the ass(or i guess your head, although some peoples are interchangeable:) and the strap even at full adjustment is too big for an average size man let alone a female player.
Conclusion: Overall i give this mask a 8 for effort. It is a very good attempt on a new style of mask, and i will continue to wear mine simply because i believe after you fix its problems its the best mask out there, including the proteus.

Fix 1: Order a replacement strap with ravens exchange program. Do this immediatly if it doesnt fit right, no sense in losing your eyes.

Fix 2: if your playing in humidity, order the thermal lens. Youll be glad you did, change out when playing conditions permit the photopurple.

Fix 3: Use a neckguard to overcome the vulnerability of neck hits. Personally i like it, because i can move my head through its naturally range of motion without feeling the mask.

Fix 4: Take a small file and file down all the sharp edges inside and around the mask. this makes its AMAZINGLY more comfortable to wear and only took me about 20 mins with a modelling file.
8 out of 10
