tippmann custom pro evolution two 20 ounce pure energy
Never ever fog fit perfect and comfortable.
Lens scratch easy but only if you miss treat it.
The alphas are awsome not only do they look good they never fog up you can breath in them there strong and have a removable visor they fit tight and wont come off plus there super comfortable the best thing is the price like $15.00 and you can find them almost any where.
I use the Tippmann A-5 with remote coil and 20 oz. CO2.
It is very durable and it doesn't look bad considering the price.
It fogs horrendously, the foam is extremely uncomfortable, there is basically no bounce factor.
If you are looking for a nice mask for a good price, do NOT buy this. It may look okay for the price but i have been using it for two years and i haven't been in a paintball match yet that it hasn't fogged up. I have to say it is quite durable considering the amount of use it has had, but after a game it feels like you are developing a rash from the foam. It has very little venting to allow your exhaled breath to escape, and what venting it does have doesn't work worth a damn anyways.
I would have to give it a three because it is low priced and still looks okay, but it is definitely not something i recommend buying.
-THIS IS A GOOD MASK FOR ITS PRICE!!
So far the only problem i have had is a little bit of scratching
This mask is great for outdoor or indoor paintball, I like the look of this mask, it looks fine, you really fit in with everyone (who isn't wearing the rentals) Again, this is a great mask, for its price (around 15$ at Wal-Mart) I recommend this mask to anyone, this really is a good mask
In need of a cheap mask?... for less than that piece of crap known as the blade, you can get a great mask, hasn't fogged on me yet.... what are you waiting for?!?!, go buy it!
I have only used this mask, but don't disregard this review... It's true, I haven't been playing long, but I've been playing with some people who have not only been playing for a very long time, but have been on sponcered teams. This review is based on my opinion, as well as the opinions of a few of my friends who also use this mask.
(Subject to change VERY soon) Kingman Spyder Rodeo, ViewLoader hopper, JT Alpha mask, standard 20 oz. co2 tank. (I'm going to get getting a VL Maxis RG (possibly with an electronic trigger frame), a Revvy 12v, and a VForce Armor Thermal Mask.)

-Protects you from getting shot in the face, like all masks do.
-Visor keeps rain off the goggles.
-It looks nice.
-Doesn't seem to fit my head right (maybe I have a weird shaped head... I dunno).
-Constantly have to adjust it.
-Not compatible with glasses.
-Padding flattens your nostrils and makes it really, really had to breath. (Not only a problem for me, but for friends of mine also.)
-Fogs very badly.
-Very hard to clean and reassemble.
-Visor gives tunnel vision (not to me, personally, but to a friend).
You get what you pay for. I paid $16 bucks for this at Wal-Mart, so I should have known it was going to be a piece of junk.
If you're low on cash, go ahead and buy it. It's a good mask for the money you pay. But, if you've got the extra money, buy a better mask. Also, when buying a mask, I recommend you get one with a THERMAL lense.

Anti fog works sometimes
I only bought this mask because I needed a spare and I was low on money. What a waste of $18! It is really uncomfortable, it squeezes my head and the "foam" is like sandpaper and chews at my face. When I first played with it, it fogged up right away and took forever to go away. Another time it didn't fog at all...weird. There are some good things. The plastic used is somewhat flexy and lets me use the sights with the stock. And that's about it....
This is a pretty good mask that you can get at many places for about $20. It fits good and tight and has very good ventilation. The only major downside to the mask is that its is very hard to put back together once you take it apart. I broke my mask trying to insert the lense from onto the mask. The inner holes would not fit the cone shaped inserters. Buy it, but dont take it apart to clean it.
I bought this mask at wal-mart and found irt pretty good, IT ONLY FOGGED UP ONCE OR TWICE WHEN I GOT SHOT IN A MASK, ITS PRETTY GOOD AND I WILL NEVER USE ANOTHER MASK.FOGS UP WHEN SOMEONE SHOOTS YOU IN THE LENS, AND THEN YOU TRY TO WASH IT OFF AND IT GETS WORSE, GO HOMER AND WASH IT OFF WIULL WATER NEVER TRY TO DRY IT WITH A CLOTH.
Well,i think the alpha would b a very good choice 4 a noob that doesn't want a thermal lens.Cuz it it's cool and pretty good protection.So u should buy it if u don't want a thermal lens.So get the alpha if u don't have a lot of money and u want 2 do it the cheap way.But i wouldn't buy it if i had tons of money....
I like the alpha and it's decent 4 the price but i would advise u 2 get a jt flex 7 if u want a cheap mask with a thermal lens.But,if u want a good,expensive mask get the proteus!

Not too ugly
Scratchy mask padding
This mask is a good deal for the money I suppose. Anti-fog spray will be a requirement, and that isn't fool-proof. I can't count the number of times I have been shot simply because I could not see where the enemies were. I am shopping for a new mask even as I write this.
If you want a cheap mask that isn't too ugly, it's not a bad deal.
If you don't like fog, don't waste your time/money.
Fogs like crazy in any condition
Fits a little weird
This mask is a good begginer mask for its price and even if there isnt a paintball store in your town you can pick one up at wal mart. but i had many fogging problems and often found myslef blind in the heat of combat. it may just be me but there seems to be a lot of holes near the mask where paint can get in...maybe ive just had some not so good experiences
