This mask is awesome. It is 100% "BB-proof" except for the nose openings and a few gaps in between some teeth. HOWEVER, THESE SPOTS ARE EXACTLY THE SIZE OF A BB AND IT WOULD BE A ONE IN A MILLION SHOT FOR A BB TO GO THROUGH AT THE PERFECT ANGLE. This mask fits my goggles very well but leaves a a 1mm gap of unprotected skin in between the mask and goggles. I got shot in this gap a month ago and still have a small scar on my cheek. It was most likely a one in a million shot though, and I will use this mask in the future.
I recommend wearing a bandanna to protect the small area of unprotected neck or a balaclava to make the nose part feel more comfortable. This mask is impossible to adjust while being worn (tricky straps on the back), but once it is set up perfectly, it will feel very nice on your face. The back strap of the mask, if worn over a hood, secures the hood in place very well and gives great full head protection. If you wear a black hoodie, it gives a great black night camouflage as the straps and backing are black.
-only $4 more expensive than a mesh mask
-Protects some of your neck
-feels comfortable when adjusted perfectly
-fits goggles great
-mask extends to protects ears
-1mm gap between mask and goggles (what mask doesn't have that)
-must be adjusted while not on your head
-Nose will feel uncomfortable if not properly adjusted (wearing a bandanna/balaclava fixes this)
-you can hear yourself breathing loudly
Overall, 5 out of 5. This mask is awesome looking, provides a lot of protection, and once it is adjusted properly, you will feel very comfortable in this mask.
