Review: I bought this mask for 20 dollars at a Walmart, and, while it serves its purpose for protecting my face, I can't really say much more about it that is good. This mask is perfect for those that want a mask to give to their friends if they want to play in the yard or something with them.

The visor does well for protecting your eyes from the sun when it is overhead. This is helpful in outdoor matches, or a long scenario game. The goggles are pretty lightweight, and easy to adjust to your head. They give good protection, and if you are wearing a hat, your head wont get any paint on it.

The lens fogs very easily, so when in a long match, it will affect your play greatly. Once these things fog up, nothing short of taking the mask of and cleaning it can help you. If paint breaks on the mask, because of the many holes and gaps, it is difficult to clean. The advantage to these many holes and gaps is that the mask allows you to breathe very easily and freely.

Clearly, these problems are due to the cost. This is a low cost mask, and gives you low cost performance. Use it as a backup at best.
Conclusion: Step up and buy a better mask, with a thermal lens. This product gets a 6/10 because it is cheap and protects your face, but a thermal mask is so much superior, that 6/10 is almost over-rating it.
