"I have been using this for the last few months and boy do i tell ya, this thing is absolutely awesome. when i first got it, it had that fiberglass smell to it which deterred me at first, but after about 5 days and a couple of solid bb shots to the face, it was gone. fits extremely comfortably, mask goes over it well, but unfortunately it has a slight tunnel vision problem. however, after playing with these for a while, i started to understand more how they work and the "tunnel vision" problem is no longer an issue.
Two interesting things about this product. One, this thing has a feature that seems to draw out all of the children in the arena. everyone wants to touch it and says how cool it looks. as annoying as it is, a simple "thanks! i like your _____ too" will send them right away.
Secondly, and this one was actually kind of a surprise to me, this mask has a psychological factor to it. now, i know psychology and i dont say it in the sense of a "cool kid". when you are looking at people and shooting with this on, people are actually intimidated. When you buy this, ask those around your local field after some play, what did you think when you saw the mask? did you want to shoot? hide? People automatically think that if you own a mask like this, you MUST be good, unless they know you as a bad player. People dont look at you at all unless they are smart enough to realize that it is just another human behind the mask. it is very good if you are trading bbs and suppress your opponent and then run at him very fast. very very effective piece of art.
-fits very comfortably
-looks ABSOLUTELY AMAZING in person
-foam inside soaks up LOTS of sweat
-kids want to touch it and talk to you -.-
-smells funny for the first week or so
-foam inside the mask soaks up sweat like crazy but leaks it if not pressed out
-cant wear a helmet over this so you cant look cool and tactical in milsim events
-breathing straight ahead constantly can cause goggles to fog
overall, 5/5. best facemask you can buy anywhere! i recommend this purchase, if not for anything else, then just for the psychological factor. best purchase ever!
"This mask is amazing. I've had it for about 3 weeks and I've used it in a CQB field twice now and I must say the mask is amazing quality. You can probably get better goggles, but I see no problem with the goggles it comes with. It looks a lot better in person then what the picture displays. It's overall worth the 50$ Oh and also, it may be a little tedious to aim down your sights, but you can do it. It's not like a paintball mask where you cannot aim at all. But if you have a Red Dot or and EOTech or even an ACOG I don't see a Major problem with aiming.
-Easy to Breathe in the mask
-Ability to aim down sights (although a bit awkward but I'm used to it)
-A bit weird aiming down sights...but once you are used to it it's not a major con.
-You don't have the mask yet!
