Not best foam (defect?), cant remove lens without strap off, adhesive lens
I love this mask! It is impossible to fog as far as I'm concerned ( I live in humid Florida so thats good for 50$.) I dont have the visor installed nor the throat gaurd. Only problem I had with it is the foam on the top is falling off, but nothing glue can't fix.
I love the lens removal itself as i can do it in about 10 seconds. But... I have to remove the strap to take off the lens =/. Oh, and so you don't get confused, the foam feels great, its just coming off. But if you drop it in the sand, the sand sticks to the lens, so not good if your a hole digger in woodsball ( i dont beileve that is a roll in woodsball though =D.)
I give this a 9/10. It's a great mask! I'd put it alongside a dye i3 or i4. I'd pay more than the 50$ for it. Buy it, Your eyebrows will sweat before your mask fogs.
Easy Remove Lens
Foam Gets Weak Over Time
Hard To Remove Visor
Ok so when I first got this mask I instantly fell in love with it. Its really comfortable, the lens is great because its big and gives you a large view, but it is also easy to remove and easy to clean. The only big problem I have with this mask is the foam because after a long period of use it starts to come apart, but I fixed that by ripped the foam out of another pair of goggles and switching them but other than that this mask has worked great for me and I still use and until some really bad happens to it like a lens break I will continue to use this mask.

Wicked easy to clean
Lenses come out easy.
Provide wide field of view.
None at all
This is one of the best investments I have made in paintball gear. The foam in the mask is so comfortable! It's just like memory foam. Not like the crapy sponge foam in others mask. The lenses come out with 2 quick snaps. Makes for the easiest cleaning in the world. Paint inside the lense? No problem. Pop them right out and it wipes off with water. Pop them right back in. The lenses provide and very wide field of view. I can see eveything. You don't get tunnel vision like other mask. I forget I have it on. The lenses are crystal clear. The lenses it comes with have a slight tint of smoke to them too so thats really nice. The mask also has alot of other lenses like amber and black tinted etc. It also comes with a mask bag to put it in to keep it from getting all scratched up which is so nice!!
Here is what you do. Are you ready? Go to your paintball bag. Grab your old mask. Look at it. Go ahead and spit on it. Now throw it in the garbage and go buy this mask! you will not regret it!
Great field of vision
I'm extremely pleased with this mask. I first got it because I was disappointed with some friends' masks I had tried that had poor field of vision as well as fogged up easy. I have had this mask fog up me once, and that was a round after I had been shot in the mask and only cleaned them with some toilet paper and water. The neck guard is great, too, since I'm scared to death of being shot in the throat; it provides piece of mind with the great protection that it offers. The only downside is since it has a bit more plastic for added protection, it does get a little hot since breathing will go down into the neck guard area and not escape. Aside from that small inconvenience I love this mask.
If you're looking for a mask that won't fog up on you, has great visibility and is also very protective, this is the mask for you!
-Cheap Jt mask
-V Force Vantage
-Gameface Agressor (I think that's right)
CCI Phantom VSC
-Detent Rings (Not much of an upgrade :D)
-Profiler lenses, can't go wrong.
-Tough plastic (Easier breaks, but I don't get hit on the mask anyway)
I bought this from a pal and as soon as I opened the box, it looked great (although it was a bit modified). I like it because the price is so low that you could pretty much do anything to this mask in terms of modification and not cry over it if you mess up. It uses profiler lenses so you can't go wrong. The part that hovers above your mouth is a bit bigger than other masks, allowing easier breathing. The hard plastic is purty good because it doesn't slap you when you get hit in the face. It doesn't come in many colors, but it really doesn't matter, I'm not picky.
This mask is a pretty much all around good mask, and for the price, you seriously can't go wrong. Since it uses profiler lenses, you could get a variaty of lenses, including tinted and mirrors. This mask is awsome, and it's soo good that I don't plan on upgrading for a LONG TIME. I give it a nine because it needs a bit of modification to really make it a cool competative looking mask.
Wide field of view
None that I have found
The V-Force Shield Mask is a great mask to use. It comes in a variety of colors and I have the Olive green one.
When you first pick it up you can tell just how light and flex-able it is; if you wonder why that matters, when this mask gets shot with a paintball, it is more likely to deflect a glancing or ball shot from an angle. It comes with a nice visor, chin strap, neck protector, lens cloth and carrying bag. V-Force leaves it up to you which parts you want to put on your Shield.
The lens has a thermal coating and works very well. Once you put the Shield on, you can huff and puff away without fear of your mask fogging up. I live in Florida and it is very humid here, so fogging is a big problem here, and the V-Force Shield handles it well.
The wide-angle lens gives you a very good field of view. Very soft and comfortable foam lining around the eye area.
I highly recommend this mask to anyone. It just proves that you don't have to spend 100+ Dollars on a good mask, as I was able to buy mine for around $35. Cleans up a direct hit very easily with some water and a soft rag.
Fogs when it is humid out.... condensation on lens more then fog
I like the mask been using it for over a year. One thing I will say is I use the anti fog to clean it all the time. Use this or water nothing else.............. and when cleaning the inside dab it don't wipe it or you will remove the film ..... but beside that it fits great and I have used a lot of mask in the 20 + yrs I have been playing. the q change of the lens is great I have 2 different colors for different playing. I love the yellow makes everything nice and bright.
If you want a great mask at a great price buy it. Don't waste money or time on a jt unless it comes with a quick change lens
Alright, so I've been using the Vforce Shield goggles through at least a dozen games so far and generally I've had no problems with it. It stays clean, and the chin strap allows for less moving and noise when I'm running and crawling which is very important. While I've never been shot in the neck (knock on wood) knowing that I have the extra protection there is a nice feeling. I also picked this mask up new for 30$ cant beat that!
The biggest weakness is that the lens does not get cleaned very easily when you get shot in the face. What happens is I wash the outside put the mask back on and the INSIDE of the mask has condensation in the exact area I washed. While this is easily taken care of if I'm in a rush to get into a game this can be a pain. Especially in a 2h+ woodsgame.
So all in all I'm happy with this mask but I'm going to pick up a Proteus 2.
A good cheap, thermal mask... just makes sure to have a cloth for cleaning the inside on the field, or don't get shot on the lens.

For the most part this is a great mask. You won't have to wory about fog. These goggles have good vision. The lens change is great, it is very easy and quick. The only problem is the air flow. After running it is gonna be hot in the mask. You will probably want to take a breather if it is a long distance run. It can really effect your play in a negative way.
This is a great mask but I would go for e-vents or profilers.
32 Degrees Icon E, yeah its cheap but i am just starting out with it, and I plan on buying an Ion or an Impulse within the next 3 months....
Very strong, and it has great fit to it, and great vision on the goggles
Mask fogs once in a while, and it gets very destracting...
I have been playing for about a year now, and i have used this mask alot, and when i am running down a feild or hiding behind a bunker it doesnt bother me, it has great vision and it has great fit, it takes alot for it to get lose or break, i have played alot in this mask and it only has ONE tiny tiny crack in it....its a great product
I think it is a great prodoct and that any one who needs a cheaper great mask that this is the one to go for.
