It does what it is supposed to, protect your head.
You will need to buy a thermal lense.
Great beginner mask. It is cheap and has great protection. Make sure you buy a thermal lense. The lenses are a pain to change. Newer masks have quick change lenses. Anyone elses review about the soft rubber not protecting well, has never gotten shot there. I have had many shots in the rubber "skirt" and have yet to have been hurt by the skirt or the paintball.
Like I said great beginner mask if you get a thermal lense. I would probably buy a newer mask like a VForce for the updated features.
