Difficulty changing lenses
Strap loosens during games
The Proteus is fantastic. I wouldn't call it a mask as much as I'd say it's a HELMET. The thing feels like you're about to jump on a Kawasaki in a leather jacket. The Proteus does tend to hit my chin when I talk though. If you see a profile shot of it, the chin guard angles inward quite a bit...but it's not a big deal. The mouth protection on this one is flexible rubber. The strap on Proteus is iffy at staying in place. Changing the lenses are a nightmare, only thing really wrong with this helmet. It's not the hardest thing in the world to do, I'm sure childbirth and the Bar Exam are tougher. It's one of the better masks out there. Intimidation factor of 10.
Style to spare, great lense, you can almost see behind you, and plus you can put a fan on this thing. If you have a small head though, this mask will feel bulky and loose.
9 out of 10

I've worn the v-force armor. It's a great mask. I'm not sure the Proteus would be an upgrade for you though...more of a shift-to-the-side-grade. The Proteus probably does have a smaller profile than the armor, but if that's your concern, I would look into the new V-force Profiler. Same lens as your current mask, much tighter package. And then, the smallest mas you can possibly get has to be the Dye Invision. I love the proteus, but if you're somone who runs around and dives alot, I would think twice about getting it.
no! overpiced! if youre lookin for equipment go to pbnation.com great stuff, you can find anything, but the thing is, porfilers are new and go for like 80 on there while you can find a proteus (GREAT mask btw) for like 35-40...I've got a proteus and I love it, very very comfortable and great range of vision...but I'd have to say, I do like the profiler more, just don't know if I like it THAT much more
