None so far.
Exept when i was forcing the visor on(kinda cracked)
This mask is so sick for a long game. i used it at a big senario event and it fogged wait dont panic i forgot to take off a plastic peel on the inside of the lens. An after i did it was so clear. This mask is perfect for all levels. and if you are a heavy breather which i am and not a hint of fogging.

Never fogs up on you.
Easy to take the lens off and clean
Vents Helix is a great mask with great thermal lens. You will never get fogged up while playing. I usually get shot in the mask and this was the mask for me. It is so easy to take the lens off to clean it. This is also a good looking mask made buy a good company, VENTS. Vents in made by he same company as Empire so you know that it is a good mask.
Great field of vision.
Easy to change lens.
I wish it came in camo.
The Vents Helix are a great pair of goggles.
They give full coverage of your face and ears.
They have a perfect field of vision - you don' t lose any peripheral sight.
The thermal lens performs flawlessly.
The lens is extremely easy to change. You just flip a couple of knobs at the temple and pop the lens off.
They are lightweight.
The head strap grips well.
They are really cheap - less than $35.
I got mine in olive, which is good for woods ball. My only complaint is that I wish they came in camoflage.
Don't get suckered into buying an expensive mask. The Vents Helix look wicked cool, they're cheap, and they perform as well as anything on the market.
The adjustable strap comes loose every now, hard to hear whats around you
Just used it today while playing in some woods. Held up well, and seemed fairly tactical (paint scheme). Got shot pretty good on the side of my head, didnt really notice until someone told me. The strap came loose a couple times, and hard to wear with a cammie boonie cover (or hat or whatever you call it). I sweat alot, and tend to breathe heavy when its hot and humid, and yet never fogged.
I love it, and if you want to stay under a $50 limit and you want quality, i strongly reccomend it for just that reason.
Does not fog, Protects well beyond the ears, Comfy
I used the tippmann tp420 for a few games as there were given to me by a friend, they kept fogging up so bad i needed to buy a new pair for our next PB session. i went to my local PB store and the owner recomended the helix as they were a great and cheap goggle setup. they were so cheap i was able to buy an upgraded pair of yellow lens's. within the first 10 minutes of playing i knew i loved them, the visibility from the yellow lens's was amazing too
I highly recomend them, cheap, comfy, and do not fog and protect well

Lets the paint in bad (will explain)
Well I got these and out of the box they were impressive. They look real good in real life and came with good detailed instructions.
Game day came and so I was psyched to get to use these.
Weight: Pretty heavy because of the thick plastic
Lens: Huge lens, doesnt distort view. Just remeber to take off plastic on both sides of the lens.
Fog protection: Good, no fogging with proper care and no glasses. Unfortanetly I wear glases and they made my glasses fog up. Also slightly fogs when splattered with paint,.
Going to contacts now.
Protection: Great protection. Very hard plastic makes getting hurt a thing of the past. Foam is comfortable and absorbs sweat well
This has a weakness in the fact that paint can get everywhere because of the breathability. I got heavy fire and so all paint splattered on me. There was paint inside the lens from the holes in the top and so couldnt see anymore. There was also some inside the mask .
I would recommend this or Proto El for cheap good mask. Its protection and anti-fogging was a huge help over my old v-force,
Brass Eagle Alpha (sucked)
Rival Force mask (was okay)
Java V-Type (comfortable, but no replacement lenses)
JT Nvader (not too comfortable, tunnel vision, difficult to change lenses)
Lapco 8" BigShot

X7 Low-Profile Hopper
Pure Energy Remote Coil
-Easy to clean/change lenses
-Foam is not glued securely
-Fogs if you have single lens
I just used these goggles for the first time yesterday and the day before at Hollywood Sports. I like them a lot, they are by far the best goggles I have ever used. They are comfortable and fit snugly without a chin strap. My previous goggles, JT Nvader, had a limited field of vision that gave me tunnel vision. The Helix does not. Also, the lens-change system is revolutionary and simple. It takes thirty seconds to remove and replace the lens, but the lens is still secure and does not rattle or slip. They are also much smaller, lighter, and lower-profile than the Nvader, which had the "forehead" plastic area above the lens.
I have since bought a smoke thermal lens. Vents thermal lenses run about $20. It helps a lot, never fogs, and with proper care, does not scratch easily. It's less expensive to buy the lens with the mask.
A good, affordable, reliable goggle system. Buy the thermal version.

The Helix Thermal is a very good mask probably the best for under $35 it fits nicely on ur head and is easy to adjust. Its anti-fog is for real it has never fogged on me. It is very easy to clean if u get hit my paint or if u get dirt on it.

I purchased this mask at my local pro shop for 35 dollars brand new because my Nvader snapped in two. This is one of the toughest masks i have used. The only weakness is that a lot of paint gets on your cheek if u get hit in the side. The thermal lens works good and it never fogs up. It looks A LOT better in person than on the photos. it has a tight snug fit. if u dont wear a beanie, it will hurt ur ears. but thats only if u play for hours with out taking it off
I reccomend this mask for anyone who wants to look like a pro but doesnt have sponsers to pay for their stuff

I got this for sale on some website and decided to give it a try and im truly happy with it. I love how easy the lens come on and off. Its very comfortable and somewhat light in weight but there is always going to be a better mask somewhere. but for the price I highly recommend this mask.
