Strengths: These goggles have an incredible range of vision. They are light, and provide decent protection.
Weaknesses: 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.
Conclusion: 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.

Strengths: Best field of vision. 280 degrees is unmatched.

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.
Weaknesses: 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.
Conclusion: 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.

I would recommend this mask.

Strengths: 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?)
Weaknesses: 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.
Conclusion: the best product (maybe the ONLY good product) AE makes. well worth the bucks.

Strengths: 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.
Weaknesses: No neck protection. Some people don't like the way the mask looks.
Conclusion: 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.

Strengths: 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.
Weaknesses: 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 protection either.
Conclusion: I would recommend this mask to anyone who plays fairly often, whether rec or tournament players. It ranks highly among other competitors.

Products Used:
None to speak of.
Marker Setup: Viper M1 Military edition w/ 14" barrel.
Strengths: GREAT vision when first bought. Comfortable and allows good ventilation. No fogging problems.
Weaknesses: 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!!!!
Conclusion: 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.
