||This mask does something few other masks do; it combines sleek looks with full-face protection and great functionality.
Unlike other mesh masks, Cactus Hobby's masks have a very dense mesh that exposes only the eye-socket areas to BB's, minimizing the chance of "flak" (something you risk by buying ANY wire mesh face protection). The mask also holds a very low profile that allows another pair of full-seal goggles to be worn on top of the mask for 100% protection.
The low profile and denseness of the mask do come at a cost however, as the low profile can make it a little harder to breathe when doing a lot of moving, and the dense, limited mesh spacing can make vision a little difficult.
Also, when the mask first shipped, the structure of the mask around the eye was pressing uncomfortably around my eye sockets, so the material had to be sanded down before being comfortably worn.
+ Great looks
+ Low profile, and room for goggles over top
+ Safer than most mesh goggles
+ Full face protection
- Breathing can be difficult
- Vision will be strained a bit
- Mesh goggles are inherently unsafe without full-seal
