I've been playing paintball for over 10 years, and have used this site countless times to read reviews on pball gear. I've never really felt the need to add my 2cents for most items, as the existing reviews already stated my opinions pretty well. That, and the fact that most high end stuff ends up being the best quality. This case is quite different tho.
As stated, I've used nearly every JT mask ever made, a few nice Dyes. Never owned, but have used countless other pieces of junk masks from various manufactures. I can honestly say without hesitation that these Extreme Rage 20/20 masks are by far the best overall quality masks on the market.
I've owned 2-3 addon fans for JT masks. All of them ended up breaking after awhile, none of them performed as well as the 20/20, even when new. The JT fans would help with the occasional fog you still get on thermal lenses, but you couldn't really feel the air flow. Not only does the 20/20 fan clear up ALL fog IMMEDIATELY (even when its raining, something jt fans cant do), you can actually feel the air-flow! It's not a wind tunnel, but its enough to cool your face a bit, and clear away that sticky steamy feeling you get when breathing heavily inside your mask in hot weather.
The overall build quality is again, top of the market. Dye makes some pretty bullet proof masks, but they don't come with a fan, and cost 2x as much. They are also more complicated, bulky and heavy. Most all the JT masks have a serious problem with the side panels breaking off. This is not a problem with the 20/20. It's a very well built mask.
The only weakness, as stated, is the looks. As I said, it dont look particularly bad, its actually very nice and clean looking. Get a color that matches your gear, and it's pretty damn spiffy. I don't necessarily love the crazy looking stuff out there, but I do like the snazzy looks of some of the JT masks. Even tho its the best mask made, if it didnt look pretty cool, I wouldnt use it. And use it I do.
This mask does not get nearly enough attention. Infact, I've only seen a handfull of players using them, besides my friends who I referred (they all love them too). I now own 4 of these, and don't really see myself buying anything but these until someone comes out with a better quality, better looking mask with a high quality built-in fan.
Although price is not that much of a concern for me when it comes to quality paintball equipment (I've spent numerous thousands over the years), the price of this mask can not be ignored. It is less than half the price of top JT and Dye masks, and imo tops them all.

Fan can be loud depending on the goggle
My fiance and I each have a pair of these goggles and they are pretty good as a first pair of goggles. The package comes with a goggle pouch, which is a nice touch in a value priced goggle. For the most part the goggles fit very well, especially for my fiance who has a smaller head. For me they still fit fairly well, but I had to cut a piece out of the nose for it to really be comfortable.
Initially I got these goggles because of the fan, which definately does its job in preventing fogging up. The fan itself runs on a single AA battery which gets good battery life assuming you remember to turn the fan off. On my goggles the fan is not too loud, but on my fiance's pair it is unfortunately a little loud (a couple of times it has given me her position) and she has to turn it off occasionally.
Overall I'm happy with the goggles considering the price I paid.
Buy it as a first pair of goggles, you won't run into the fogging trouble which can be really frustrating when you first start out. But be sure to check out the fan before you buy a specific pair.
I can't comment on how it compares to higher end goggles, but they do their job, and are pretty comfortable. I'll say this, there are hundreds of other paintball upgrades I will consider before upgrading from these goggles.

BT4 Assault e grip and exp chamber mag, tippman triumph sl 200 hopper, remote line and 20 oz co2 4 in one back pack
Price, the fans function, comes with a bag and a chin strap.
Noisey, low head ,neck coverage, wont fit glasses well without cutting foam. Changing the battery.
One thing i did not like was the amount of foam around the nose it was so dense i had to cut it away so i could breath without feeling like i was wearing a clothes peg on my nose. it wasn't painful just irritating , made my voice sound as thow i had a head cold.
The second thing was that i could not fit it over my eye glasses frames as the amount of foam around the lens is excessive in my opinion. I used a thin hobby razor knife to cut a square 50% threw the depth of the foam at the temples and it slipped over my glasses and frames just fine. With no apparent effect on the performance
Its a bit heavier than my other mask but its got a fan and one AA battery in it.
Changing the battery is a bit of a pain do it at home not in the field.
My field of view did not seem restricted and it comes with a chin strap but i didn't have to use it
I would buy this product again if need be the fan is a bit loud but works well even on my eye glasses. The mask DID NOT fog . Too much foam is not a problem you can allways trim it . Better than not enough foam. Its a good deal for the 60 bucks i paid i never noticed the weight .

Tippmann 98 Custom w/ car stock
Remote line w/ 24 oz tank.
Great Camo Finish
Virtually No Fog
Strap doesn't stay tight well
This mask is a great Woodsball mask.
1. The camo finish is of great quality and blends well with most environments.
2. The thermal lens prevents most fog and keeps you playing well.
3. In extreme conditions the added bonus of a built in fan makes it that much more effective.
4. The foam is extremely comfortable and does not itch like many other masks.
5. The mask is extremely reasonable in price, it gives you everything that a high end mask does for 3/4 the price. The best bang for your buck.
The only weakness is the weight of the mask can make the strap loosen over time... this can be fixed by using the chin strap to make sure the mask stays taught.
