Review: Simply put, the FX-10 goggles rock! To begin with, the field of vision is awesome. This mask pretty much gives you full use of your peripheral vision. The FX-10 is rarely the reason for turning your head to see something on the field. This mask feels as if it was designed for my head. I rarely encounter any slipage, they haven't fogged once (And I play primarily after sunset). It also feels like I breath a little easier wearing these than my old nForcer (Which I now use primarily for target practice).

The quick release system, while not as easy as I had expected, is still far superior to what I was used to. The lenses are so easy to remove that I'll sometimes take them out of the mask to clean them at the field. Some people have expressed concerns regarding the security of the lenses (i.e., popping out). If something hits this mask hard enough to knock out the lenses, it will more than likely come out the other side of your skull. In other words, these lenses are pretty secure.

After playing with the mask for a couple of months, I decided to downgrade the mask from a 10 to a 9 because of the lack of chin protection.
Conclusion: Although I am about as new to paintball as a newbie can get, I quickly realized that there was one thing about this sport that I absolutely hated; the goggles. That changed when I purchased the FX-10!
