[Mask-Ironface-BK]
$8.00

If you are looking for some lower face protection for a low cost while providing maximum protection this is it. The straps on the goggles are fully adjustable and hold the adjusted lengths easily because of the two adjustment buckles on both the top and bottum strap. The area of the mask that rests on the nose has two relatively stiff pads for comfort that also create space to prevent the mask from rubbing too closely on the face. There are holes on and around the nose and mouth to allow circulation into the mask, but really the fact that the mask has some space between itself and the chin allows much more ventilation to come from below the mask.

To test the mask I used three different weapons at around 1-2 inches away from the mask while being worn by myself with another shooter assisting. The first item I used was a 520 FPS spring powered sniper rifle using .20g bbs. The second test I used a CA m15a4 on full auto shooting around 400 fps with .20g bbs. The final test I used a WE 1911 (chrono unknown) with .20g bbs. In all three tests the mask preformed perfectly, I barely even fealt a hit as well.

PROS:
Affordable
Great Protection
Easy to adjust for a snug fit
Keeps the fitting adjustments well
Solid Construction
Did not block line of site through optics like paintball style masks

Cons:
Difficult at first to find the right way to wear with existing goggles (should try this product out with your goggles at home before first wear at the field to alleviate this)
Mask may be uncomfortable to those not used to wearing masks (yet again wearing this at home before the first use will alleviate this)
