Review: This is going to be the first thing i replace. When i opened up the mask bag it was folded in half in 3 pieces, these things did not want to be straightened out and put together. Then I went out the the Field and played some ball in 40 degree weather and spent the whole time sneaking my goggles off to wipe the inside out due to fogging up(good thing i didn't either get caught and have to leave by the ref's or get popped in the eye by another player). Then I got popped in the goggles, pulled out my clean rag and proceeded to wipe for 5 minutes just so i could see again, I don't know if this is due to the paint we were using but everyone else had no problem wiping it off of their goggles. So i continued to play for the remainder of the day fogging smearing and worst of all I have what you would call "larger ears"......This mask ate them up....my ears hurt more at the end of the day than the point blank shot in the upsey daiseys i received from a very well timed 3 shot burst.....there are more comfortable masks out there

as for appearance this mask is pretty sharp looking if you are into that kind of thing. But dont expect to have any balls bounce off of the mask seeing how its pretty simple and not designed to help you edge by the rules by having a bounce.

coverage is also fairly good on this mask unless you have large ears such as i do..there also is not any coverage to the top of the head or to the back of the cheak bones. If you are looking for extreme coverage this mask is not for you and maybe you should concider an elite head shield instead

since this mask came with my marker i was not afforded the opportunity to try it out with a thermal lense, some people say its a good mask with a thermal lense but in my opinion why should i go out and spend money on something just to make it work the way it should....hince the fogging


Conclusion: this is a steady 5 in my opinion, if you can stand the fogging and the sheer uncomfortableness than get it but if you cant maybe you should look into a different mask or at a minimum a thermal lense.......one more positive is scott has been it the google business for many years so they know how to make a set of goggles but have on experience in anti fogging stock lenses

As far as the fogging...should have bought the thermal one or anti-fog solution.

i really had no chance in purchacing the thermal on seeing how it came in my gun package....im not rating the thermal goggles or the anti fog solution im only rating the scott goggles that i had purchaced. if i would have bought the thermal lenses i would definatly bring the rating up to at least a 7 but the sheer uncomfortableness of this mask made my decision to mark it so low

Yeah a lot of the folks that I know that bought the power package have had numerous problems with this scott mask, it is a shame that JT isnt in on the mask support for tippmann

ya i would just say buy a thermal lense for it or buy anti-fog like Xjong Chiamiov because i use to use them and all i did was put anti fog on it and it would never fog up, and the anti fog even got of the paint to. and i actualy thought they were pretty comfortable.

If you aren't going to buy a thermal lens then you better get used to the fogging. Or go to www.fogtech.com. They have an incredible anti-fog product that works amazingly. They are $15 for a bottle or $7 for a box of 5 pads in these little packets which are VERY convenient. Take a look at their website.
