The backbone of the new Proteus™ is still one of the most innovative creations, designed for maximum protection with a minimal target zone. The JT Uni-body polymer mask features one of the lowest profiles on the market today. Engineered for maximum effectivemess for communication on the field, it incorporates unique audio capabilities and fog-resistant performance making this the most advanced goggle system available. A 260 degree field of view is provided by the Spectra™ lens, the most popular in paintball.
The JT Proteus II Mask is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Bob Long Empire Intimidator, 14 inch Dye Ultralite, Odyssey Halo B with ripdrive, 45ci 4500psi and 70ci 4500psi stubby Crossfire n2
doesn't fog, comfortable, low profile, light, good field of vision
expensive, hard to change lens, no neck protection, lenses scratch easily
This is a good mask. It looks cool. You can get a fan and tinted lenses for it so that is cool. I like this mask a lot but my lens and my visor got scratches on them after the third time playing with them so I had to get a new lens and I don't really use the visor.
I recommend that you buy this mask if you have the money.

This mask is AWESOME! Not only does it look good on the feild it is very comterable. this mask is also very low profile.
You can also play whe it is very hot outside and you will stay cool. it is like you have no head gear on!

Evil Omen w/ Halo Backman hopper, 20 oz pure energy on/off valve (gettin nitro soon)
Small target, no fog, no glare
i havent found any yet
There are a few things i look for in a mask. the first being "will it fog." I got the mask a week before going to a friends b-day party. Almost the whole day was spent playing speedball. It was about 90 degrees outside with 70% humidity. The mask never fogged once.
The second thing i look for in a mask is will it glare a whole lot. During the same day there were also no clouds. PLaying speedball means that there were no trees to block out teh sun, but incredibly i had no problem seeing my target.
Third thing i look for is FOV. Awesome FOV. It covers a full 260 degrees. That means not only can you see in front of you, you can also get a great range on your preipheral vision. Of course you cant see behind you but thats a no brainer.
The last thing i look for is if the mask looks good and fits right. The mask looks awesome. Kinda like something out of Halo. And as for it fitting right. The mask fit like a glove. I put the mask on and it didnt even feel like it was there.
An overall great mask. I hear the commmunication radio thingamajigger isnt all its cracked up to be. A defnite buy if your serious about playing. Dont ge the Nvisnion. Its overrated.
2. No fog
3. Good visibility
None that I can think of.
JT Proteus II mask is an awesome mask. When I first started playing paintball I had to use a rental and it sucked. This is my first mask that I bought and I am glad that I bought it. When I showed up on the field with my new mask everyone was like wow. . . They were hating and just wanted one for themselves. Another reason why you should buy the mask, to increase you popularity. 8-D
In conclusion this is an awesome mask and I recommend it to any and everybody to buy it, as long as you are willing to spend the money. But trust me it's worth it.
I use a TKO impulse with dye grip, freak barrel, blue i frame, vision, tapeworm, voodoo bolt, titanium cross hare pin, NDZ hammer assembly, check it uni mount, halo b, check it clamping feed, HPW kung fu snatch grips, pure energy 68/4500 tank, and vert max flow.
It is comfortable, tight, and appealing
Hard to clean, and expensive.
This mask is definetly appealing to the player. It is definetly the most comfortable mask I have ever used and it is easy to breathe in. It is light and definetly sticks to your face and doesn't have any excess parts sticking out. It is really hard to clean though. Like all JT masks the lens is really hard to take out.
I would get a fan eventually because in the summer it gets really hot in that thing.
Comfortable, light, looks good, very good ventalation, does not fog at all.
I found it hard putting the lens in but thats not the masks fualt
When i first got these goggles i knew i was going to never need a new pair again. There very comfortable and look awsome. You can see perfectly down the field through the lens. This mask is totaly worth it and it is very inexpensive for whats it worth. Its very durable and it justs looks awsome and has never fogged on me ounce.
Great mask and i would definatley recommend it to anyone looking for a great mask.
Super Comfortable. Has not fogged on me yet. Looks cool. Wide field of vision.
Throat / Jaw Protection. Hearing adjustment thing makes no difference.
Mask offers superior anti-fog technology. It is a pleasure to put it on, I'm a newer player and I've used rental masks and have borrowed friends of mine's lower level masks from JT. This mask blows them COMPLETELY out of the water.
After about an hour of playing you barely notice you have a mask on. It naturally fits around my head and face. i bought the steel blue one and have had refs and other teams comment on how awesome the mask looks.
The Vortex fan easily snaps in underneath the visor.
It offers a 260 degree field of vision which makes a huge difference in peripheral vision. Cleaning the lenses is a snap.
If you are a talker, sound resonates well out of the mouth guard.
The hearing technology bragged about from JT means nothing....it really doesnt.
Another half an inch on the throat and chin protection area would do wonders. If your mouth is open wide your chin is exposed.
True story: I poked my head out of a bunker when a paintball came in from my left and smacked me in the side of my head towards the front. The mask held up great as I didnt feel much pain...but the impact knocked my head backwards....almost instantly another one came in and POW!!! i took one flush right underneath my chin. Another half an inch of mask would have saved me the use of a band aid.
It really is a great mask and would be perfect if it had better jaw and neck protection.
Dont be fooled by high internet prices for this mask. (75-100 bucks)
An awesome mask. The pros definitely outweigh the cons. Excellant mask for all skill levels. Go get it!!!

Syder compact 2 in 1. 12 inch barrel,expansion chamber,regulater and gauge
Easy to adjust the size
Great field of view
Maybe too small but it does fit to your head nicely
When i first put this mask on i was blown away...Just having it on my head and not playing, i knew this mask would be great to use. First game i played with this mask was great. I was at the top of my game because of the quality that this mask offered.
The anti-fog is great.This mask has two lenses in it. It's called combat vision and it is great but one time the lens on the inside cracked so water was getting in between them and i had no way of getting it out so you have to wait for it to evaporate.
Other than that i love this mask
A V-force mask Profiler(Pretty Damn good) some other Jt- usa masks nVader( fair) and a brass eagle mask( HORRIBLE)
tippmann a-5 with some upgrades not really important since we are talking about masks
can get muggy inside
Chameleon is worthless
Ok recently i recieved a protus 2. Like everything i get i like to test it while its under warrenty. This mask being no exception i put it through the following tests.
Test 1: the fog test
Temperature 45 degrees
Distance: one mile and a half
Result: No fog on the thermal part of the lense
Test 2: Trial by fire
Distance: 30 ft
Weapon: Tippmann 98 custom
Weapon mussel velocity: 290 fps
Rounds fires: 30
Rounds bounced : 3
Lense hits: 5 (No damage apparent after cleaning)
Neck hits: 5 (I was wearing a neck guard)
Test 3: Fit
Jumping Jacks: 50
Result: Mask didnt budge 10
Mask can get muggy if you arn't running. -1
Mask looks great +1
Lense hard to remove -1
Overall this mask scores a 9 out of ten. I belive this is the second best mask on the market. The V-force profiler is better than it but it is also more expensive. Be sure to purchase a neck guard with it. I would actually not recomend getting a fan unless you need it. The thermal lense really is resistant to fog.
Cheap-for a great mask
None I have seen so far
This mask is very cool. Looks great and feels great on your head. It is a very comfortable mask and nice and compact. The mask is very clear and it doesnt ever fog, only when you breath on it heavily. It's easy to clean, looks really cool, feels great, and doesnt fog. What more could you want. Also it is very affordable.
I would definantly recommend this product to anyone that wants a nice mask, for a great price. It is very comfortable, compact on your head, looks really cool, doesnt fog, and it is cheap. Get it.
