Spyder E99 Avant, Smart Parts All American 2000 14'' Barrel, Empire Reloader, JT Proteus Mask w/ Vortex Fan and new thermal Lens, JT Gloves
The JT Proteus mask is a good buy if your looking to get a good mask. Its main rival in my opinion is the Dye Invision, they are both good goggles, but a lot of people like the feel of the proteus mask more. The key thing with the proteus mask is not to harm the lens. Never touch the inside of the lens with anything but water and a micro fiber cloth. Im serious when i say that, it will ruin it if you use lens cleaner, or a harmful surface to rub it. The mask wont fog if the thermal coating hasnt been harmed from the inside of the mask. A vortex fan is a decent upgrade if you want to circulate the air better.
-Small Mask = Small Target
-Doesnt fog without harmed lens (dont touch inside)
-Fits comfortably to your face
-Tends to keep all your re-breathed air inside the mask, can get muggy.
-Not a lot of breathing room, the mask is held close to your face
I recommend that you buy this mask over others. You can get it for 50 dollars and you can upgrade it. The vortex fan works decently, and you can buy new lens'es with colors or just to replace. I have not used the communication kit but that also is built for this goggle. I subtracted a point because this mask has bad circulation. You end up breathing your air over and over again without a fan. When you run fast and breath hard this can be annoying.
edit: took off another point after playing with it more. It really makes it hard to breath a lot because its so tight to your face.
