RAP4 Hawkeye paintball goggle is designed for tactical paintball, military combat training and law enforcement force-on-force training. The Hawkeye goggle is designed with a head and chin strap for your safety. This design prevents the goggle from being pushed down your face, or getting pulled up off of your face. This safety feature is a must for running, jumping, crawling, night play, and other strenuous operations in rough conditions. These straps secure the goggle tightly in place with comfort, too.
The Real Action Paintball Hawkeye Paintball Goggle is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
V-Force Rental masks....Not nearly as good as this product
Very Comfortable. Breathes nicely
They seem a bit heavy.
The first time I went to play paintball I figured I would hate it and never go again. I don't particularly like being outside and I hate exercise even more. So I go to the local field and fell in love (or lust or at least get a crush). Now all I can do is think about when I am going to play again.....
The first thing I decided to buy was a mask. So I did some poking around and decided to get the RAP4 Hawkeye. I have to admit this was because I liked the tactical harness they had and I did not want to place an order at two places so I thought I would get the mask as well. I was also thinking about getting the V-Force Profiler mask. I am glad I got the mask I did.
Aside from the badass looks to it, the mask is really comfortable. The foam around the eyes and nose area is very thick and nicely padded. There was no uncomfortable rubbing on my nose or anywhere unlike the rentals I have used.
It has 3 straps on it. One for around the head, one on top of the head and one under the chin. Using all three straps makes the mask very stable. It did not move around at all. The chin strap is easily removable if it is not to your liking.
A baseball cap fits nicely under it. I am old and going bald so I need something to keep my bald spot from burning. I was glad I could wear a hat under the helmet.
It has a nice field of view. No loss of peripheral vision at all. I did not wear glasses underneath but I suspect it would not be a problem at all.
It was hot when I wore these the first time. No fogging at all. The lens is a nice double pane. They washed off easily in the field with water and a paper towel.
When I got them home to make a thorough cleaning the lenses popped out pretty easily. The mask cleans up really easily and nicely.
Mine came with the optional neck guard. Not sure if it was supposed to but I am glad it did. It saved from a couple of nasty welts. The neck guard comes off very easily.
The only downside is that they seem a little heavier than the V-Force Profiler. Its not a big deal at all, and I think these actually give you a little more coverage, so of course they will be heavier. I just wanted to point this out.
This is a buy. They are comfortable and easy to clean. It looks great and has a nice field of vision. I would definitely recommend these to other players as well.
Extreme Rage single lens X-Ray goggle. Cheap, comfortable, but fogs up easy and slides down your face. Scratches pretty easy too.
Tippmann A-5 with reasponse trigger and remote line and low profile hopper
no fog after 5 hours
soft comfy foam ear pads
Easy lense replacement
Have yet to find any due to lack of use.
This mask is awesome! My first mask was the Extreme Rage X-Ray Single lens. They were comfortable but after the second use fogged up really quick due to poor venting in my opinion. The Rap4 Hawkeye goggle/mask is very comy, has yet to fog on me, and has a very wide view. In between games I forgot I had them on until my buddy reminded me that i was still wearing them. They fit ove my glasses perfectly and never pulled them off my face when I took the mask off. Another good feature of this mask is the fact that when the lens needs replacement all you have to do is pop it out. I know how hard replacing lenses can be when I tried it on my Extreme Rage goggles. I almost broke them trying to get the lense out. Great mask to have.
I would strongly recomend these goggles to anyone. Its designed well and as a player who wears glasses under their goggles, design means alot. My glasses fogged up before my goggles did and thats how it shoiuld be. I give this product 10/10
10 out of 10
