Very clear lense. Can't fog up the lense even when you blow on it. The mask has a sturdy feeling to it.
Almost everything. This mask is the worst mask I've ever tried on. I bought this mask from the internet and tried it on today. Man was it painful. It was physically painful. The foam is like super hard rubber that refuses to form to your face. The mask just hurts when I put it on. The strap works very wierd. The visor.... lol... the visor doesn't even stay on. I had to tie it down with a string to hold it in place. This is the worst mask I've ever tried on.
Don't get this mask unless your face fits perfectly with this mask. You have to have a pretty narrow face for it to happen. Otherwise, get a low end JT mask. Those would be better for you.

I've used this mask ever since i started playing. I bought my tippmann kit and this is what the field owner gave me instead of the old flimsy one. What can i say? This is a great mask and has held up over the years. I've only had to replace the lens once and only because i lent it to someone and it came back scratched up pretty bad. This mask is perfect for the rec ball player as it is affordable, provides great protection and i personally find it comfortable to wear. On the sides there are these little plastic pieces that slide under the lip of the lens to keep it secure and can be easily slipped out to clean the lens, but not so easy as to come off during gameplay.
Over all a great mask at a great price. I highly recommend it for the rec ball player and occasional player. People who play more often may want to consider a bit more expesive model but i think most will find that this particular mask will do fine. Giving an 8 for affordability, comfort, style, and functionality.

Great for young kids
Jaw bone protection
I bought this when I was a new player and I loved these things. They only fogged twice once one it was really cold and the other was when I was playing in over 100 degree weather. It doesn't have very good chin protection or protection for the side of your jaw, but come on it's only $20. It is very comfortable inside. I accidentally stepped on these when I was walking inside my room. My foot snapped a piece of plastic and now I can't use them anymore. So,I bought Proto Switch El's. Wow what a terrible mask. They are $10 more and I wouldn't buy those things for a $1.
This is an unbeatable mask for $20. I would suggest it to any new players that are on a budget.

Visor dont want to stay on.
Mask leaves alot of unprotected areas
Got it as a loaner, worked ok for that. Mask is a little small for bigger heads.I use Protos and this one just dont cover enough for me. Had no problem with fogging.The visor uses little o rings to hold the visor on...this could be better.It actually looks better without the visor anyhow.Field of vision was good,better than the JT's and PMI's.
For the price its a good mask. If you got a bigger head you might want to go with another brand of goggles.
I got this gun in a package, but heard they are going for 20 bucks now, WOW! These masks are functional and utilitarian. They provide a decent level of protection without being too bulky, and they are way breathable (unlike the JT's I used to have which had you hyperventilating). The padding really is sparse, but I wear or hat, and even when i don't it just doesn't bother me. They have a decent range of vision, which I don't know about you but I'm not making money playing paintball to make it a career so I'm not worried about 1 or 2 degrees lacking in vision from a mask... (silly) But they defiantly have noticeably more than my stupid Xfire thermos I bought in like 2000 for $45(rip), and they handle fog just a little rougher. Now the fog thing, Once I was playing, it had been raining for the past 4 days, It was raining then, it was damp, and the goggles fogged. I could still see, and it was still a good day, so do they fog, yeah, is it that bad, I leave that to you.

some dye mask not sure wich one (not as good) / and a proto switch (much better)
Q loaded SP ION
Dosent fog up at all. Comfortable
Limited perriferal vision
Before I tried the proto mask I was happy with my mask. It was cheap and dosent fog up. Now dont get me wrong it is a good mask especiaaly for the money But using the proto and seeing how much larger the range of vision is made me realize that it's not the greatest .there are much better out there even in the same price range. Mind you the proto was only a $30 mask but had a much better range of sight. All in all if your a rec player or just need a backup get the v force but if your planning on playing the sport seriously or even just frequently I would go to a local paintball store and see the difference in the masks and decide wich is best for you.
Buy it if its a backup or included in your package but if you can spend the 5-10 dollars more on the proto or something with a better range of view you will thank me. It's like going from regular tv to hd.

Doesn't irritate eye
does not fog
easy to breath
Small view of the field
Does not fit very well
I got this mask along with package. Its a pretty good mask and i must press "pretty" good. this thing is very comfortable. the lining is very smooth so you don't have to worry about scratching your eye during game play which is really harmful. and I have yet to see this baby fog and that's a big plus cause "if you can't see them you can't shoot them" . i honestly don't know the cost but base upon other review its about 20 bucks which is surprisingly cheap . YOU MIGHT AS WELL GET THIS THAN A JT !!! DON'T BUY JT !!!!!!!!! if you're a wood baller go for it ...
now enough with the goods. the bad part is barely much . this mask does not fit very well for some reason so if you have a big head or big face or ugly face think twice about it. and another thing was that you can't see the corner of your eye which is essential in the case that you might get bunker but then again if you play wood ball and with a team like me that shouldn't be big of a problem . make sure you can trust your friend though .
well in all that's about it i gave my best for the review
good wood ball mask or a starter mask
DON'T BUY JT !!! JT GO TO HELL !!!
got 20 bucks ?! GO BUY IT !!!

Can not become extremly tight on my small head
I have been shot in the mask several times and it did not hurt with this mask on. though my brother was using it and got hit and ate paint. overall it is a great mask for its price. It has fell down on me several times but only when i slid head first.
This is a good overall mask if you have a small budget or want to spend your money on other things.
