light, tough, comfortable, and looks great
a little too short, chin exposed, get a neck guard
This has been the best mask I have ever had. You hardly feel it on, very manuverable. The field of vew is a good as it can get. you can flank with confidence. I went on a trip down to Florida, and the lense still didnt fog up. This mask give a new dimension to your game throught the mobility, you will be comfortable squeezing down into the smallest cover. Its amazing how a good goggle system effects your entire game. I hadnt noticed untill I picked up the proteous. The price is amazing for what you recieve, and is the final nail in the coffin of the dye system.
GET THESE GOGGLES they are the best choice on the market for comfort, reliabilty, performance, and price.
nothing besides if you take a shot to the mask. then you eat paint
well over all.
I think this is a good mask because:
-it fits nice and close to your face so when your head is hanging out you wont take a shot to the head as much.
-I think that it is really good when it doesnt fog up at all.
-I think it is good when you can breath easily with all the vents+ you get a nice breeze.
-and hey I think overal it looks pretty cool.
I think it is a over all really good mask. I like it a lot and if you are going to chose a mask between Dye Invision and the protues well I dont care it is your choice. But personaly I like this mask a lot.
Piranha STS Core, stock everything except for the upgraded Venturi bolt.
*great thermal lens, no fog
*awesome peripheral vision
*chin sticks out, though that problem is easily solved
If you're here to judge wether to get this mask or the DYE Invision (many of you probably are), I would first start off by saying this is definately the best choice. I have used both masks and I find this one to be far better than the invision. First off is comfort: the invision and proteus are near equal in this catergory, as both offer a snug fit and comfortable padding and a good secure strap. It offers great protection too while keeping a low profile, something i appreciate. Thermal mask hasn't fogged on me yet. This mask also offers great vision (260 degrees or so) which is amazing to behold when all you've previously been using is a basic mask. You can see pretty much everything around you and your peripheral vision is great, so no one will ever be able to sneak up on you. Last there is LOOK. This mask is simply amazing to look at. The colors blend together awesomely and the tinted visor and low profile combine together to create one intimidating mask. The only bad thing is that, like other reviews have said, your chin WILL stick out when you talk. But it's a minor problem and is easily solved by not walking around with your jaw wide open while paint flies in your direction. Great price too (55$ on ebay). Though the invision and proteus are both awesome masks, this one just pushes ahead and imo the best mask out there for the money.

Everything is wicked about the mask
Not much neck protection and your chin sticks out a bit
Jt spectra PRO flex does not compare to the proteus the proteus is a nicely crafted mask and briliantly looking which brings a whole new meaning to paintball.
The size of the lenze gives you a good vision compared to other masks the look of the mask is far better than all other masks.
Not much neck protection and your chin sticks out a bit
IF U LIKE PAINTBALLING SAVE YOUR MONEY BUY THE PROTEUS
BEST MASK ON THE MARKET WORTH THE MONEY ALTHOUGH IT IS A BIT EXPENSIVE AT SOME PLACES BUT U CAN FIND IT MOST PLACES FOR ABOUT £70 - $80

Difficulty changing lenses
Strap loosens during games
The Proteus is fantastic. I wouldn't call it a mask as much as I'd say it's a HELMET. The thing feels like you're about to jump on a Kawasaki in a leather jacket. The Proteus does tend to hit my chin when I talk though. If you see a profile shot of it, the chin guard angles inward quite a bit...but it's not a big deal. The mouth protection on this one is flexible rubber. The strap on Proteus is iffy at staying in place. Changing the lenses are a nightmare, only thing really wrong with this helmet. It's not the hardest thing in the world to do, I'm sure childbirth and the Bar Exam are tougher. It's one of the better masks out there. Intimidation factor of 10.
Style to spare, great lense, you can almost see behind you, and plus you can put a fan on this thing. If you have a small head though, this mask will feel bulky and loose.

gloss black Xmag w/ black Smart Parts all American 14", Black Halo B, AGD flatline with black tank cover
did I mention comfortable?
when yelling, chin hangs out the bottom.
hard to get lenses out.
This is easily the best mask I've used. My only beef with this thing is you practically need the jaws of life to get the lenses out. If you know how hard the Invision is, this is almost as hard. Some people say it doesn't cover your chin when you're mouths open, but i only do that when yelling, and i usually get back behind the bunker to do that.
best mask out there. you should really think aoubt buying it.
The fit, the tinted thermal lens, the fan I've added to help on those sweltering, humid summer days and the freezing cold days where my breath carries onto the lens occasionally. I especially dig the look. It's an unbelievably intimidating mask to where on the field and works phenomenally well in woods games.
The neck protection is limited, but (knock on wood) I have not been shot in the neck yet and I wear neck dressing anyway.
If you want the best mask I've seen on anyone I've played with, THIS IS THE ONE!!!
