Light, hugs my face, comfortable, easy to breath and talk through
FOG FOG FOG if the weather is not perfect.
I am going to make this simple. I love this mask but it does fog like crazy in less then perfect weather. I even have the Dye Fan on mine but it still will fog in high huimidty weather. I just ordered a Dual Pane Lense for it so that should take care of the problem.
I like it, I reccomend it, but get a dual pane lense with it.

Really a great mask. I picked it up with my PMR I bought used, and didn't think much about using it. I went up to a Scenario at Splatbrothers and let my buddy use it while I used my Profiler. I personally sweat up a storm in paintballing, so I began fogging very quickly. I found myself sitting next to my buddy asking him if they were friend or foe, it was that bad. I had to frequently clean it, etc. You get the point. My buddy didn't fog a bit. So 2 days ago was the first time I really used it. It was 83*F + and was very sweaty. I never fogged, airball, spools, tires, everything. Really the best choice for the best price. Don't need to buy a SUPER EXPENSIVE one either. Pick up one from Pbnation or Specops for cheap and see what you've been missing.
SUPER EDIT: I finally had it fog on me. I was playing woodsball, and literally just lying down for 10 minutes, then moving about 10 feet. It was kind of expected, what goggle wouldn't fog in those conditions?
Still great mask.
Lense replacement is the only downside. Heard you gotta rip the mask apart, haven't tried it myself, not going to. After that, the greatest mask to buy for the price.

Basically this mask is way overpriced but what do you expect from a major retailer like DYE. This mask way outperforms any that I have used ever before. This mask has a very low profile and is exteremely light. With this mask you can talk very clearly to your teammates and you can hear what they say as if you werent wearing a mask.(that is if their mask doesn't interfear with the way they hear or speak.) The HD lens isn't all that amazing, it just makes the colors and shapes more defined which helps but it is not worth the pricetag of the mask. Most if all come with one so dont worry bout it though. I would reccomend this to pretty much anybody but only if you are willing to pay a high price for a mask. as far as performance goes it is outstanding.
This mask is not worth the pricetag but is still a very good mask. I would reccomend it to everybody willing to pay the price.(look on ebay for a good buy I never buy straight from the manufacturer) Since nothing is perfect and there is no 9.5 I give it a 9.

To much venting
Lets start with the postives and end with the negatives.
Very breathable due to there being so much venting on the front and sides. This mask is a very gd looking well dye always make gd looking products in my opinion although it wide on me due to me being a young and small player [tall for my age] which makes me a bigger target and a coller looking target. This mask does not expose your jaw line it covers your face until you get to the mid/top of your neck. This is an extremly light mask sometimes i forget im wearing it due to it being so light and vented. The lens which it comes with is hd burt yellow colour it is amazing when playing it lets the right amount of light in so its not to dark or not to bright, it hasnt fogged up on me one time since buying this product so if im playing on a rec day other players wont be seeing a thing while ill be bunkering them. The soft ears are nice and comfy when you get shot u dont really feel it and it improves your hearing a bit. Due to so much venting you can shout louder and clearer a problem i have with empire e-vents is that due to the venting being just at a narrow bit at the front you would get what you shout echoing back into your ears.
This mask is hard to clean i cant get into those little places like when i get hit in the moth i cant get into the venting holes. The lens is still a problem which dye still hasnt fixed from there last goggles which they should of it take about half an hour to change which it shouldnt. Okay venting is good as i said in my pros but this mask has to much venting you get hit anwhere below the lens then your going be having alot of water to be getting that awful taste out of your mouth, you get hit from the side paintballin your mouth, front paintballs in your mouth.
A awesome product by an awesome make great work dye but not perfect improve on a few things then you would of got a 10 hopefully your next maske will get a 10.

Good looking in my opinion
Very good vision
I'm gunna start with the bad things just to get them over with, ok so i got the mask a little before Christmas first of all the price gouged my wallet but i sucked up the pain and carried it home exited to see what my new purchase would do for me. the first thing i did was try and take it apart so I would know how on the field, i had continuing difficulty taking the lenses off but no biggy i got them off in about 5-7 min.s now that the bad parts are out of the way time for the good stuff, so i put the mask on for the first time and the vision! it was fantastic at least compared to my Vantage which i previously thought was great. i noticed very little to no fogging even from what iv been hearing about them being super foggy, i tested it by basically hyper ventilating and no fog lol, the mask was also increasingly comfortable.
conclusion eh? well i would have to say that its not spending that much money on but if you have it to spend i highly recommend it, and since I'm rating the product and not its price I'm gunna have to say 10 iv seen nothing better yet
I have used this mask for a while and I will say it is a good mask, it is exceedingly comfortable and stylish. It is fairly breatheable probally could be a little bit better in my oppion. The only flaw to this mask is that the lense is a real pain to get in and out. My first time took me an hour of frustrating struggling to get the lense out and another in. After you do it a few times you kind of learn little tricks to get the lense in easier but I advise you get a secound lense frame and lense so you can just switch out the lense and than place the allready clean and ready to go frame and lense in. The stock lense is really good as well it is a "high definition" lense that seems to brighten things up and is very helpful for indoor play.
I highly recomend this mask if you want comfort and style.

easy to breath
lacks head protection
I bought this mask from ActionVillage and for a good price. although i have yet to play W/ it, it is a good mask. It wont fog on you which is key in games. it is exceptionaly comfortable in almost any weather condition. The "coolears" result in good hearing and venatlation. IT is EXTREMLY easy to breath its almost like your not wearing at all anlike most masks. It is the first mask that I have owned that really meats up to my standards. However It is much smaller than it looks even with the visor it dosent offer good head protection.
Well worth the Money. After all it is a Tornament mask ..

Great mask but im not sure if it really worth $100 if it was like $50-75 then it would be a deal!!!!!! it should have less breathing spaces it should be more like the vents, but if u get shot in the face be sure to close ur mouth. lol!!!!
I love this product its a alittle pricy but it awesome!

Resistance to fog
Some people complain about not having a thermal lense stock but, it doesnt really need it. I have the stock HD lense and haven't had it fog up on me once.The chin strap is really comfortable. The strap doesnt loosen at all on the back. Your voice doesn't bounce back into your ears. People can hear you cross field. I think that it is one of the best looking mask out there. Events are are cool but, they don't cover your face and your voice bounces back into your ears.
Spend about 100 bucks on the best mask on the market. Unless you go to your local paintball store they might sell them for cheaper. Perfectly flawless mask.

Wide field of vision
Lens removal is still pretty hard to do.
This is the best mask I have every worn. Period. It is very light and does not fog at all. I purposely tried to make this bad boy fog by breathing as hard as I can, yet nothing happened. Also, it has a wide field of vision, after a while I forgot I even had a mask on, which is great. it has good protection of the face and chin and also has ear protection. Finally, it looks unbelievably cool, probally the best looking mask now. If you want a mask fit for the pro's, buy this mask, you won't be disappointed.
Defiantly a buy if you want an amazing mask. It feels light and you will probally forget it's on when playing. Buy it now!
