great mask for $50. Buy it. You will not regret it. it is a great mask.
Buy it. this mask has never fogged on me even when i played in the snow.
I get complimented on the looks of this mask everywhere i go. You should encourage others to buy this mask.
Tippmann Armor (that is unfair to compare the armor to this it is like putting an ant against a death ray [armor is the ant if you didn't guess])
Tippmann Triumph eXT with Procaps remote
Flexible (bouncers), high field of vision, really cool looking, low profile.
Only the sides are flexible enough to get a bouncer.
This mask is the holy grail of all cheap paintball mask with its sleek profile high field of vision and visor that fits with a military helmet (again to you mil-sim guys). This is an uber mask that with green is an excellent addition to ones camo. Plus this thing takes a lot to fog up but it is no profiler so thats a warning to you but that can be fixed with a few squirts of anti-fog. It only takes one game to realize this is an awesome mask.
So anybody that is shopping for mask and thinks of buying an armor just save up the extra $10 and get this beast.

This is a great mask to wear for it fit comfortly around the eyes and doesn't squeeze the nose. I love the easy disconnect system for the lens it makes clean easier and faster for those times you only have a short time to clean.I got the thermal lens because my last mask fogged alot. The comfort foam helps in the scenario games were you have to were them for more than 2hr. The flex rubber sides is nice and helps with the hits, but it the rubber on the "grill" part of the mask doesn't help because of the tenseness of the hard plastic around it.
One problem that I have had with it is that it has a little tunnel vison it not too bad but enough to notice it.
This is a great in vestment and I would advise for any beginner or player strapped for money. For $30 their really cheap.
Peripheral Vision isn't that great.
Not much lens choices.
I bought the Pro Vantage Thermal goggles which are 5 dollars more than the regular ones, and I was amazed, they didn't fog on me at all. They are really clear, I loved the fact that it seems as if there isn't a lens there. A bad thing about the Vantage mask though is that the peripheral vision is a little smaller than even the mask I had before which was horrible, Java V Type. It doesn't really matter to me though, it doesn't effect your game play really at all. Another thing that wasn't so great about this mask is that the lens choices weren't really good. I looked online and only found regular clear ones, Amber, and Smoke. I was hoping to find some lens like the mirror ones that the V-Force Morph / Shield Thermal Goggles have. Other than that, these goggles are really great so far for the time I have used them. The price was pretty amazing too. I paid $ 33.90 for the V-Force Pro Vantage Thermal goggles on ebay. I will update this review when I eventually use them for a couple of more games.
I would definetly recommend this mask over others. The price is amazing, and the view is crystal clear. If you are a serious paintballer who wants lens that are mirrored, you would then need to step up the the Profiler in that case, which is around 30 dollars more then the pro vantage thermal. Overall, great mask. Lots of colors to choose from.
Comfort. Well it fexible so it won't pinch your head. My dad said that it pinches his ears but I don't have that problem. The foam isnt' itche with is sweet. The mask is also increadably light so it is very comfortable to just were.
Solid. The core of the mask is some very nice plasic witch means it will protect your face. you do have to be carfull about the plastic sides though. I was playing once and I got pinged in the side of the head and it left my ears ringing but their was no perminit ingery.
Paint balls bounce off. I have had so many paintbals bounce off my mask I'm constantly checking to see if i have paint or not. the first time I played with it a guy with a Dye unloaded on me not one on my mask poped. The only place where I have had paint burst is on the lense. The built in forhead head guard is nice. It gives you some bounce on you verry hard forehead.
Collars. They have tones of difrent collars for this makse. You can pick the one you like best. I chose green casue all my other stuff was camo.
Looks cool. Not that important but an nice add on.
Price. like twenty-seven dollars. So you look good and your walet feels nice and full.
AntiFog. When I first got it you could breath right on the lense and they wouldn't fog up. Well the months have gone by and now my lenses will foge up now. I had them on the other day and they started foging up from the humidity and I live in Indiana so it wasn't even realy that humid. You can buy some relly nice anit fog gell from 32 Degrees that will make that problem non existant.
Anit scrach. I have been using this thing for a while now and the lense still doesn't have a single scrach.
Quick Chang lens: I love the quick chang lense. The thing is so stinken easy and fast. I got goged once early in the game and some paint got unders the lense. I waited around a watched my friends play and when we headed back to refill hoppers I had my lenses out cleaned and back in by the time they were done loading the hoppers. it is also so simple that I figured out how do it with out looking at the manual.
One of my freinds has the top of the line Proto mask. I was looking at it one day and my Vantage does everything that the Proto mask does for like half the price.
If you want to by a mask for watever ressson by this one. It's sweet. I gave it a nine because the anit fog isnt' so great but the rest of this mask is awsome.

Spyder Victor III
Viewloader Quantum agitating hopper
SP 14" Linear barrel
20oz. co2 tank
Easy to change the lense
Price is decent
Visor is a little hard to get in, more anoying than a weakness
The first time I used this mask in a game was a young guns tourney and it performed really well. It never, I mean NEVER fogged up on my. The whole time it stayed tight and performed like a good mask should. Foam stayed comfy, and every lens hit I took was really easy to clean. Also I liked the fact that I got it at a local sheels for $30, a steel in my opinion.
I would recomend this mask to anyone that is looking to get a thermal mask for pretty cheap, and you can later move up to the better vforce goggles like the profilers.
Compared to what i have used before this is good for the money, the bounce system doesn't always work when shot head on. The visor has scratched quite a lot but i feel that's more to do with abuse from trees and stones more than than anything else. The play all day foam, its true, it is the most comfortable mask i have used. It rarely steams up, ive only had this happen when lying half in a river and also when it is humid as any mask would. When running the mask does sometimes slip down but it usually means you need to tighten the strap. I also haven't been able to find replacement visors for them in the UK which is annoying.
Its a good mask and i have used much worse. You can get better masks for quite a bit more money. I really like it and due to its price, it makes up for its faults.

So easy to clean the lencse
I bought this mask because the owner of the store let me try it on, and it was like wearing nothing. I had a wider field of vison plus it was comftorable, When i play with my friends and get a break on my mask it takes 30 secons to slip out the lencse and clean it, funny when everyone else squirts thiers with a hose.
Also i have a silver tinted reflecting lencse that swithced for the clear one it looks DANK. if u have the mask you should get it.
