Review: Look guys, Im not flaming this product, just putting it in its rightful place. Above they admit that its entry level. I think even this is a stretch. I have to ditto the guy who said that the nose piece was coming apart. I have electric zip ties holding mine together. I NEVER use this on the field and never let others use it because its not safe. I only still have it so my kids can run around the house with the tigershark I gave them and they play pretend paintball.
Conclusion: OK so you just dropped every dime you have on a new marker and all you can afford is this piece of junk. I understand. But when you begin looking at marker upgrades, clothing, etc. do yourself a favor and get a better mask. The two top dogs as far as masks go right now are the JT Proteus and the Dye Invision. You can get either one on ebay new, rather cheap. I say cheap...yet your going to drop like $75. But are your eyes worth it?
Plus both come with Thermal lens...say goodbye to fog. This improves your game more so then 3/4 of the marker upgrades out there. Take it from someone who has been shot by people he couldnt see because of fog, and shot others with ease because they are fogged up and cant see me. Believe me, seeing is better.
Any pro or semi pro, or anyone thats been playing for awhile will tell you that a mask is not the place to skimp. Dont be ashamed because your shooting cheap paint for awhile so you can get a better mask. We will see who laughs last, well us with good masks will see.
If your using this mask(airstream), at least youll HEAR us laugh, assuming your mask didnt fall apart and you got plugged in the ear!

At least upgrade to the nvader. It is alot more rugged. I put thermal lens in mine and they are almost as good as the dye or proteus. Only thing that makes those two better is the peripheral vision and the comfort.
