A few years ago me and a few friends played paintball and the masks were awfully uncomefortable.
VForce Armor Mask = Comfy
Not scratch proof
Vision could be better....
I have played twice with this mask and it is certainly much,much more confortable than the ones I have used in the past.
I played at a paintball field, they use the VForce Armor Mask not a bad choice I suppose. Its a great mask, comfy but the vision could be better. Its really easy to clean but some scratches etc stay perminent.
But thats at a paintball field, the masks arent handled well. Well with this mask there for rentel I didn't have to find the right mask I just used anyone becuase of the very very easy change of size with the strap and its very comfy fit.
I have played "No Rules" with this mask and thats when me and my friends shoot each other at point blank, I can surely say this mask provides all the protection needed but the vision should have been abit better, it doesn't fog at all but if its scratched and oldish its not so clear to look through, also whe played at night once and if you are at the other side of where the huge light source is then you wont be able to see much, its as if the light reduces your vision to up to 40% or somthing.
So in short this mask is really great, comfy fog proof and you can see clear if you take good care of it. But if not you will have some trouble seeing. Easy to clean and provides loads of protection.
This product is ideal for novices to play with and deside what they want in a mask, this mask is "good enough" for a novice.
The product is durable/strong. Very comfy and clear vision if its not scratched. Its easy to clean in combat and it doesn't fog up. Also, very easy to breath and talk.
But if you plan on playing paintball allot I suggest getting a mask with a better lens this lens scratches way to easy and thus providing less clear vision, but a great mask, only scratches if not handled correctly.

1]Good Protection - Covers alot of the side, top of the head, and the chin and neck area
2]Good Quality Foam - I've Played with this mask in the rain; water cannot leak through
3]Comfortable - There's nothing in the mask that could itch your face, and the mask stays in place.
4]Dosent Fog - This mask even though it isn't thermal it dosent fog. Just dont put household cleaners on the lense because residue would make it fog easier.
5]Looks Good - This mask looks so good. The design is awesome.
1]Nothing I can think of
This mask is a very good mask for begginers or intermediate. The mask Looks Good, It Dosent Fog, It has good protection, and it is COMFORTABLE.

Fairly good protection
Easy to take lenses out
Fog unless the weather is really really good.
Good mask but there not thermal. I will soon be getting thermal goggles because sometimes these fog. They are horrible when it is wet out u cant see anything. But other then that they are good. I like v forces look to. This mask is very affordable and durable. And the lesnses are so easy to take out.
Good mask but sometimes fogs. Other then that they are fine.
Top foam presses against brow, which makes it uncomfortable, sides of goggles blocks some view.
Well I bought this along with a Raven goggle system. And I have to say that both of those goggles have their strengths and weaknesses. I use the Raven far more than this, but that is because of comfort reasons. This goggle system is very good. It does not fog on you at all. Ive never had a fogging problem with either these, or the Raven system. Many other goggles such as certain JTUSA ones do fog. I play in Miami weather, which is very humid and hot, tropical moisture filled air. Yet these are the only two goggles that do not fog that I know of that are reasonably priced. If its about $20 bucks, I consider that reasonably priced. I bought these for $18. You really can change the goggles in under five seconds. It makes for very easy cleaning. I want to use it alot more than what I do because mine is green for woodsball, while my Raven is black. Plus my Raven is harder to clean because it doesnt have the quick change. But the Armor very uncomfortable over the eye brows. The closed cell foam is to stiff and doesnt cushion very well. The foam does not irritate your skin though, it is smooth and soft, but doesnt cushion well because of the thiness of the foam. The top foam will press against your brow and bring it a little bit down over your eyes making the brow muscles a bit soar after a while trying to fight the pressure. I found out that by adjusting the strap high on the top of your head instead of lower it feels a bit more comfortable. But I am afraid it might be more prone to slipping over the top of your head and falling off. Another problem I have with it is that it doesnt give a wide field of vision like my Raven. Off to the sides, the lense ends, and the plastic mask frame begins, and there is about a half inch of plastic to the sides of your eyes that blocks vision, a blind spot. If someone were sneaking up on you on these blind spots, your screwed. I can fix the foam problem though, I am going to glue an extra strip of soft foam on to the top foam and that will solve that problem. Leaving only one problem left which cannot be fixed, which is the blind spots to the sides of your eyes. Well the goggles would be perfect for what I am looking for if it wasnt for two things, the uncomfortable top foam, and the blocking of the view to the sides.
Seeing as how gluing soft foam is an easy fix, and the reasonable price, good quality construction, no fog, good protection, and especially my favorite feature, the quick change lens I would give it a 9 or even a 10. But I shouldnt have to fix anything out of the box on a goggle system, and the blind spots are a bad weakness, so it will be an 8. One other thing, if you get this mask, make sure you dont forget about the o-rings that comes with it. The o-rings are used to hold the visor on. Alot of people forget about them and wonder why the visor doesnt stay on.

I have had this mask for a while now and I know will stick with this mask for a long time. First of all, this mask never fogs up. Compared to my other mask, this mask is cheaper, more comfortable to wear, and, of coarse, it doesnt fog up. If you purchase this mask, it will not let you down.
If you are a beginner, and you want something cheap that will serve you well, this mask is right for you.
