It came free with my Tippmann 98 Custom
Fogs up easily, Provides very little jaw protection
When i bought my Tippmann Custom 98 i received this mask for free. A buddy of mine also bought the Power Pack and had the same mask. When we got out to Mad Cow Paintball (Ceder Creek Nebraska) we both tried them out for the first time.
As soon as we put on the mask we realized that the lower face mask stops short almost an half inch of protecting your entire chin from the front. From the sides it provides NO protection and if you are hit there you will take a paintball right in the jaw!!! But we figured we'd give it a try anyway.
As soon as we started playing our first game, both of our masks fogged up so bad we could barely see our hand in front of our faces. This happened 3 games in a row and we continued to be picked off right away because we couldn't see anything.
After the 3rd game, we gave up on the mask and had to rent masks from the Proshop for the remainder of the day.
I have since purchased a JT Elite Headshield (see my review on it for more info) and use that as my mask now. I did still bring the Scott mask with me to play just in case a buddy forgets theirs, and wouldn't you know it the next game someone did forget theirs.
They also experienced fogging almost immediately and ended up renting a mask.
I've since retired the mask from any use, its obvious to me now why it comes free in the Tippmann, because its a cheap piece of junk.
I recommend throwing this mask away. If it came with your marker, just junk it, if you are thinking of buying it, DON'T!!! Go spend a few more dollars and get yourself a good JT mask.

Dm4 with halo-b victory board, crossfire 70-4500 low pressure nitro tank
comfortable, hard to break
fog up. GET THERMAL REPLACEMENTS THEY DONT FOG AT ALL.
when i got my 1st gun (tippmann 98) i got this mask also. I was a noob back then and here i am 6 years later and i have still stayed with this mask (with a replacement thermal lense). I think this mask is ALOT more comfortable than all the jt masks and is hard to break. The non-thermal lenses fog like crazy but spend $20 and get thermal replacements. its well worth the money and doesnt fog AT ALL. After you get these i dont think its necessary to buy more expensive goggles because these are just as good and comfortable.
If you already have this mask then get a replacement thermal lense and youll be good to go. If you are thinking about getting this mask then get it and the thermals and dont waste your money on more expensive jts and dyes

I love these goggles! they work really well for the price. i got them with my tippmann 98 and havent replaced them yet. they dont fog too easily and they dont feel flimsy. Another big plus is that the have a visor. I have used the visor a lot for blocking glare from the sun.
i believe they are perfect if you dont have much money but do need some decent goggles
Vforce Shield (better than the vectra, but you get what you pay for)
stock 98c, scott vectra thermal lens
Not the best Protection
Fogs up Without thermal lens
I like the feel of this mask. It is light, and feels solid. It is also smaller than many other masks, which is good for my small head. It fogged originally, but after i bought a thermal lens for it, I have NEVER had problems with fogging. (NOTE: look for the scott "panorama" thermal lens)
As for protection, like i said earlier, it is a little on the small side. This means that if you have a big head, you can get hit in the jaw more easily than with some masks. again, if you have a small head, it should fit you fine.
Mine came with my custom 98 power pack, and of all the masks i've worn, this feels the most comfortable. I like the fact that it's light and has a lot of ventilation.
Bottom line, if you already have this mask and don't mind the feel of it, look for a thermal lens rather than another mask. this one isn't too bad. If you are looking to buy this mask, wear if for a little bit to see if it fits your head well. (This can be said of pretty much any mask.)
I really like this mask. It fits me well. It fogs if you don't get thermals, but for a mask this price, you won't find a mask WITH thermal lenses. If you get them for the mask, this mask will work for you for a long time.
I gave this an 8 out of 10 because, it does fog without thermals, and may not fit all heads.

Plastic (If you don't care about bouncing), has a small shield in the visor
Fog was okay when its dry but it fogged a lot when its raining.
Well I used this twice in two weeks and it worked pretty well for me. I like it but don't suggest buying this. Use it a few times if you got it for free(like me with my Tippmann 98). But get a new mask soon I haven't got gogged in the mouth or anything so I can't say if it would be good. Also the protection for you neck is okay but worry about it a little. Bad thing is it fogged for me really fast when it was raining but thats natural since the hunidity in the air. And a bad thing about the vents under the lenses is that when you breathe the heat and go trought the vents causing fog. And also I got shot in the little clip thing right below the lenses and paint flew up through the small hole and throught the vents into my eye.
Its pretty good if you get it with a Tippmann 98 or a friend gives you it for free. Just use it a few times then get a new one fast because it won't help you a lot.
Green 2003 Autococker with Dye Boomstick, Shocktech Superfly bolt, Evolution II hopper, and 3a 47/3000 nitro tank.
This mask is cheap. You get what you pay for. It will fog up really easily. It is very uncomfortable and if you are planning on buying it dont, spend a few more dollars and get something decent from JT or get the Proto Switch EL for under $30. Its not a good mask at all.
Not a good mask, fogs easily and is very very uncomfortable.
V-Force Armor(yup its $20, but it rules)
Tippmann 98 w/ Whisper 14", soon to be a St!ffi
PMI Piranha G2 EXT
(hey both were free dont bash on me!)
good halloween mask
Sure it might help you hide since its black. But I couldnt even wear it, it's so small and weak. I got this with my free 98 Custom package and I gave this mask to my cousin since he likes to pretend he's the Master Cheif dude from Halo. I wouldnt even takle this mask for free,(even though I did, but I didnt know that it would suck)
If you wear this I wont shoot you, cus I dont want you to die. So Plz dont get this mask!
Inferno Field Mk 1
VL 200 Gravity fed hopper
Good field of vision
Fogs up easy
Not well ventilated
Not anti-sweat (lol)
Cant wear glasses with it
Its very comforable and has a nice tight fit, which is essential as a loose slipping mask can be off putting. It has a good field of vision I mean I can roll my eyes left and right as far as possible and can see everything, tho you cant see down much. Its also a nice and cheap mask, so may suit beginners on a budget.
I first tryed the mask and it fogged up within the first 2 mins, was quite easily solved by anti-fog, but still misted a little, you have to breath out the bottom of the mask for it to not fog, which is hard to do in the middle of battle. I sweat moderately when I play, not excessivly and it just ran down my mask which was annoying as it really didnt help me for seeing things.
[Edit: Forgot to mention that if you wear glasses, then you cant use them with this mask]
In conclusion, its not a bad mask in all, a bit of anti-fog and some breathing out the bottom solves most problems with the mask, it is aduquate for a beginner who is looking to enter the sport on a budget, but if you have cash to splash there are alot more masks to choose from.

Fogs like a b**** in cold weather (playin at night makes it fog 3x worse)
my mom got me a tippy 98c power pack for Christmas. everything was great besides this mask. the first time i played it was at NIGHT in COLD WEATHER against
my best friend blake, who has full auto. so as soon as i started RUNNING for cover, my mask started foggin up, but because i knew the field & could hear him i charged him
(fully auto is noisy) by the time i got there i could barley see but i knew he was in the bushes by me so started firing as fast as i could. i caught him off guard but was quickly
over whelmed with paint balls, so i quickly ran for cover on the other side of bushes but before i could get there i run into a bench because i simply couldn't see resulting in me getting shot in my side and lower back from about 4 feet away!
i played the next day and it still fogged up but i could see. due to it was bight out side and was alot warmer.
some may say that the reason it fogged so bad was because i put it through extreme conditions but its the thing i didn't. i live in St.Pete Florida were it rarely gets below the mid-50's and were was still street lights to light up the field. after i took my mask off i could see over 100 ft. vs. barley seen at all with it on
New Advice !!!
I am still a noob and still learning new things all the time. after asking for advice from a new friend of mine, i decided 2 get some anti-fog and its worked
I wouldn't really recommend this mask unless you get in a pack or if it was give to you for free and even then use should probably only use it until you can save up to buy a new 1 with anti-fog (still don't throw away, you may find it useful a spare or hand me down).
