These goggles have an incredible range of vision. They are light, and provide decent protection.
I think that they fog too easily after being shot, and they should provide a little more neck protection, the addition of a "no fog" lense would be the best thing.
Overall I think these are excellent goggles, the vield of view is huge, and I think that how well one can see is the most important aspect of purchasing a pair of goggles (other than protection), because you can't shoot what you can't see.
Protective lower half. While playing in the woods, I tripped and landed mask first into the mean end of a thick tree branch. If the lower half wasn't made out of tough plastic (and soft and flexi like some other masks), I would have lost a row of teeth at the least.
Thermal lenses and neck protection would be nice.
Main downside: The HUGE clear lens means reflecting more light. This can be a pain while moving or trying to ambush because your mask could be a beacon revealing your location. It sort of forces you to be more aware of light and surroundings.
Vision is great. Hasn't fogged up yet...but I wouldn't mind security of thermal.
If fog is no variable, the mask gives you and edge because of increased vision. The more you can see, the more ready you are to deal with threats.
Perhaps I'll try the smoke or amber lens to combat reflection.
Best field of vision out there and that's the most important thing (second only to protection-don't wanna lose an eye, you know?)
Nothing. A lot of people say it's too big and makes it easier to get shot but to that I have to say this A: if you play speedball, you're gonna get shot pretty much all the time and i think a lot of people who play have asses bigger than this mask and should make an effort and go to the gym a lot more often and B: I hapilly trade the size of it for the ability to see peripehrally as well as I can. When I don't play speedball, I need to SEE more than I need a streamlined mask.
the best product (maybe the ONLY good product) AE makes. well worth the bucks.
The BE280 mask offers excellent field of view. The mask is
comfortable and roomy -- especially for those who wear
glasses (prescription or even sunglasses!)
Fog-up has not been a problem in my experience. Anytime I
have problem with fog, it has been my glasses which fogged,
not the mask lens.
No neck protection. Some people don't like the way the
The BE280 isn't for everyone, but don't rule it out simply
because it's a BE product or because it doesn't look like
every other mask out there. It is a well-made mask
offering unparalleled field of view, good comfort, and does
not fog up easily.
If you wear glasses or intend to wear sunglasses (as
opposed to buying tinted/mirrored lenses for the mask
itself), you won't find another mask w/ more interior space
than the 280.
A comfortable, lightweight, and protective mask. It has a
hard plastic, and rubber construction. This mask also
gives a much larger plane of vision than any other I've
seen. The large lense is thermal and scratch-proof.
The Xtreme vision mask is a little expensive, but it is
worth it. It can get uncomfortable after wearing it for a
long period of time. It doesn't provide much neck
I would recommend this mask to anyone who plays fairly
often, whether rec or tournament players. It ranks highly
among other competitors.
GREAT vision when first bought. Comfortable and allows good ventilation. No fogging problems.
Anti-fog coating came off instantly. Don't plan on doing anything if the insides of the lenses get wet, bad situation. Mine cracked BADLY after 5-6 times playing with it, and I was never I repeat NEVER shot in the mask!!! It did not receive any other kind of stress either. I just picked it up one day and noticed two cracks on opposite sides of the goggles. Checked it the next and the cracks had grown and spider-webbed outward. I can no longer play with it safely, and I have been using it for little more than 1 month!!!!
I would rather give up the 30 degrees of vision arc than to have to constantly replace the lenses. Even if I found them cheap, it still should not be happening and is another black mark on the quality of BE products. A good idea not used correctly. If you want maximum vision, this may be the leader of the pack, but if you want something you won't have to fix constantly, buy a different mask. It will sadly save you money in the long run.
v-force morph and jt invision, paper bags, panty hose, and duct tape.
amg vlassic and stufff
Um you could go to a star wars convention.
Tooo much look at my review.
This is just wrong why would anyone buy this brass eagle should be sued for selling this. The lense would pop out like crazy. It smells of bad mojo. You might be better off wearing a panty hose. What it says toooo few words where can i get more words nothing else too put man this isn't cool me no likee. Um paintball is cool
Buy it......if you're a Star Wars junky. Why is there 0 for my vote?
