Products Used:
JT nVader
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 Custom (Black)
10" Black Dye Ultralite
Black Kapp Drop Zone 3
Black Empire On/Off Valve
88ci 3000psi Fiber wrapped CrossFire N2
Shortened and Lightened Trigger Pull
Polished internals
Strengths: Excellent field of vision, Easy to Breath, Confortable, Price.
Weaknesses: Face foam although the most comfortable i've felt soaked up lots of sweat.
Review: This mask is AWESOME. The flex part actually works. Took a hit to the face and it bounced right off. The foam inside the mask is 110% more comforatable than that of the JT nVader or it's PMI remake. No forehead protection IF you do not use the visor, with the visor it's no problem. Breathability on this mask is unrivaled, and there's no echo in the mask when communicating with my other team members. Snug fit with a low profile.
Conclusion: For 40 bucks this mask is definately worth it. I was told too late that the FIRST big investment when getting into paintball is not the gun but the mask. I just got done playing with some friends, who also use tippmanns, but bought cheap masks. I owned them when I was walking right up on them and they could barely make out my silouhette due to fogging of their masks. This mask barely fogged on me and it was about 88 degrees, VERY humid, and I was sweatting buckets. Definately worth the money for it's comfort, field of vision...speaking of vision...when I was playing today...other than feeling the pressure of the elastic head strap I forgot I was wearing these goggles. it's optics are so clear, and the range of peripheral vision is so wide (260 degrees), it's unreal. I cannot say enough good things about this mask. So let me just say this: Flex part Really works, Vision is great, Thermal lens is the bomb, and as far as comfort goes....feels so good you'd have to buy it to experience it yourself. Pro's are using these goggles for a reason.

360* is on the back of your head- 260 gives you full peripheral vision

yes, due to he shape of your eyes, 260 is full peripheral vision, but i doubt any mask has that much vision.

you're wrong punk rocker. 260 means that it is about 130 degrees from either side of your nose to the edge of the viewing area, placing the edge of the lens right in front of your temples. Now unless you can see your own earlobes, which I highly doubt you can, that's you whole field of vision.

A full circle is 360 degrees. If the vision is 260, that would leave 100 left. A right angle is 90 degrees so 100 is a bit more than a right angle. That means that if 260 is right, you can see a little bit less than three quarters of a full circle. That would bring your field of vision just past your ears.

Great review that tells the truth. JT makes the greatest mask in the sport of paintball.
