Well this mask was out of stock for a while, so I jumped on the chance to get it. I should warn everyone how is looking at the bottom two pictures: YOU ARE NOT GETTING THOSE. YOU ARE GETTING THE TOP PICTURE. The third picture shows 4-5 straps on the back of the head, while you only get three, one going along the back of the head and two at the bottom. As for putting the glasses on like in the second picture, no possible way to do that. Both pics also depict the cloth part surrounding the mask going back about halfway to the back of the head. You don't get that either. Maybe these are showing prototypes? I'm not sure, but it's misleading.

Other than not getting exactly what I was expecting, this mask is pretty sweet. You do need to wear safety glasses underneath to be 100% protected, but that's a small price to pay for 0 fogging. I wear glasses to see, so I get both sets pressed up against my face a bit. I just wear my hood and Balaclava and it creates enough of a gap.for me to be comfortable.

It looks great. In the right light it hides you face, gives you a very intimidating look, and it's the closest thing you can really get to a full helmet without giving yourself a whole bunch of shaking and discomfort.

Pro's:
-Looks awesome
-Flawless ventilation
-Did I mention it looks awesome?

Con's:
-NOT WHAT IS PICTURED
-Not designed for people with glasses
-Out of the box the sides press out a bit making it a wider target, but it goes away once in gets broken in
