-Not bad looking
-sometimes a little too big
-the single lenses fog like crazy
-not very good hearing
The JT Elite nVader is a nice mask. I wouldn't dare compare it to a Dye Invision, though. But The nVader is a great mask for the price. It's MSRP $30, I bought mine for $25 from D!ck's Sporting Goods. It has lasted me a good year of paintballing. The only reason I am discontinuing my use of this mask is because it is too big of a profile for me. I have a rather large head, but the JT nVader is a little too big for me, even. It should fit you just fine, but the bottom flap and the side flaps of the mask flare out when I wear it with my hat backwards. This gives me out as a larger target. Trust me, the Dye Invision is A LOT smaller. Check out my review on that for more info. But, overall, this mask does it's job and protects your eyes and face vey nicely, and helps to protect your neck a bit. If you buy the thermal lenses, you should have no problem. The single (non-thermal) lenses tend to fog up a bit.
If you are looking for a cheap and effective mask this is it. You can't beat $30 for a high quality brand like JT. Just be sure to get the thermal. Nice Mask, yet uncomparable to other higher end masks. 8/10.
P.s. If you like the nVader, also check out the nForcer.
Well lets see i used a jt flex -7 ize grey smoke only for a sec and its way better than this
WGP 2K3 Verti cocker with bottomline and 14" Smart Parts Tear drop barrel Empire loader.
-Great protection since it covers all of your chin
-NEVER GET PAINT IN MOUTH
-not ventalated enough
-Visor is hard to get off
-Lens hard to get off
Overall its a pretty good mask for the money and quality. It is good for starters but after that upgrade to a flex-7. If you want full coverage and everything than I would consider getting this mask. The only thing is if you like to play in the summer you will get overheated pretty quick unless you dont where long sleeve camo. Now im only 13 so it hurts when i get shot but im not a noobie. I would suggest this mask for anyone but especially new players.
Go out buy it its good. O yeah i got mine for like 30.00(except mine is an enforcer no difference) so its overall pretty good. I give it an eight because i really over heated and i also would like it to be more comfortable.
~Ridgid Face Protection.
~Darth Vader Look.
~Limited Field Of Vision.
This was the first paintball mask I ever owned and all I can is that it served me well. It offers ridgid and complete face protection for an entry level price as well as an awesome starwars look. However, its lenses offer a limited field of vision and its ridgid construction offers little hope of bounces.
If you're looking for a mask to get you started in paintball, or a nice backup, the JT NVader is for you!

Smart Parts teardrop 14"
Maddmann Spring kit
Its tight and comfortable
area is tight near the nose
This mask is decent and very good with thermal lenses, i havent had to do anything to my mask since i got it, the fact that the nose area is a bit tight is an issue, but anyone with smaller noses wouldn't understand however. The mask is a Darth Vader design unlike the Nforcer which is like a storm trooper, but they both fit ok and gives you a clear view all day long
Great product, buy it and you wont worry about fogging again, and you can change your pods on the mask, so thats cool too
Dye Invision : Much Better - Jt Flex-7 Ize - Much Better
Wgp 03 vert cocker - flame drop - empire on/off - 88ci/4500 stubby - venturi bolt - evil pipe - new adjustable feed neck - kapp reflex trigger frame
Low Price, It's Cheap. Firm Mask. No Paint Gets through to face.
comes with single lens which always fogs. doesnt tighten well, paint get stuck in it.
The Mask is Alright. Its good if you don't have a money for a nice. I would recommend putting 20 dollars more and getting a Flex-7 IZE or Dye Invision. The Single Lens is bad and always fogs. The mask is firm and not much paint gets through to the face.
An Alright Mask if you dont have the money for a better one. I would recommend it to a beginner, but if you plan to get good your going to end up with a new one.
icon e, smart parts boss progressive barrel, 12 v. revy,
protects head also fog resistant lens, cheap
not thermal, had to modify nose peice,chin strap
get ride of chin strap and back of neck proctor because it keeps falling off, it is a good price and is anit fog resistance but is not thermal,it has a piece that goes over your head like a helmet so you do not have to wear a hat and it is pretty light
i would defenitaly buy this mask again it works good and is worth the mony, i even know people that want this mask more then a $70 one
The cheap masks that come standard with markers in packages.
1. Range of View 2.Coverage 3. Durable
4. Value 5. Visor
1. neck protection 2. Lenses arent thermal 3. Difficult to clean in the ventilation holes
The JT Elite nVADOR Mask is a great mask especially for the money. With great protection and decent ventilation, this makes for a good mask for any player at any skill level. The visor effectively keeps sun off the lenses and thus does it's job well. The goggles are not thermal so be prepared to spend 10-15 bucks on a product that can help. This mask when worn snug will not slip if you get shot in the face, and is very durable. Since this mask provides minimal to no neck protection I recommend the use of a neck guard or just wear a turtle neck if you're worried about neck protection. I recommend you not go spend 90 dollars on a mask (higher end JT's) when you can purchase this mask which performs very well, and spend the money you saved on upgrades for your gun. The strengths overcome the weaknesses without a doubt in my mind.
Definately a great mask at a great price. I recommend this to any player at any level. A great product.

well this mask was pretty awseome.. i just thought it was average...... but then i played i realized... paintballs were bouncing off my mask ! one round, 3-4 paintballs bounced off my mask (all in the visor area.. but they still shoulda broke on a mask!)
now im convinced my mask is blessed.
pretty awseome mask, i personnaly prefer it over the spectra, and its cheaper.. so it all works :D
I've owned 2 of these masks, and for a cheap $25 WalMart mask, they perform pretty well. The mask is made of very stiff, non flexible plastic, which can be good or bad depending on your outlook. The foam around the ears and eyes isn't as soft as the higher end masks, and is quite uncomfortable.
Like all JT Masks, the lense scratches very easily, and fogs up just as easily as well. These masks can be found at any WalMart or Sporths Authority, which is good if you don't feel like buying from your shop, or online.
Although this is a good mask for the price, I'm rating it based on the quality of all of the other masks on the market, therefore, it deserves a 6. If your looking for a decent mask for around $30, check this one out.
