Matrix Iron Face Carbon Steel "Striker" Gen2 Metal Mesh Lower Half Mask - Woodland Camo

"A big, impervious, cheap face defense solution. This mask has protection in spades, it'll cover almost all of your face even if you are a larger person. You can even breathe in it, thanks to it's mesh construction. The foam cheek pads make proper shooting form a reality, increasing comfort and accuracy and even offering a little bit of neck protection. On the downside, the straps and D-rings aren't of the best quality, and don't provide good retention, and the bulbous nature of the ear guards make the hat/mask interface tenuous at best. However, this mask is constructed is a way that makes it's shape exceptionally easy to modify. It can be bent to fit comfortably against pretty much any face, and can be trimmed with tinsnips after peeling the glued-on trim.

"After watching a youtube video, I decided to pair this mask up with ESS NVG Profile Goggles. After some work I was able to get them to fit right up the goggles. I must say, this is 10x better then any kind of soft face protection as it protects better and has way better airflow. My ESS goggles have never fogged up with this mask. The Woodland matches my loadout too!

Saves your lower face and ears from bbs
Best airflow I have ever used for lower face protection = less chance of goggle fog
Camo patterns to match your loadout and make you blend in better

Took a long time to finally get this thing to cover the bridge of my nose (hint: tighten the back strap as much as possible)
Still requires some decent head twisting to aim down the sights of an AR platform (mounting a red dot on top of the carry handle fixes this)
May not work with all type of full seal goggles.

"Full face and ear protection which is good. It covers more of your face than it looks in the picture. Almost like wraps around your face while offering great ventilation. I would rather have this over a $100 full mask.

"Pretty good mask, easily protects my entire lower face and ears. However, it is a little bulkier than expected. It is a little difficult to aim down iron sights or a scope, but it is still a vast improvement over my old full face mask.

"Great product from matrix , It's worth the money for protection and also looks cool . Although it is not very comfortable but it has a purpose . It takes a while to mold it right to your face and can get in the way of glasses and hats but you get used to it .

- Great protection
-Tactical look
-Not to bulky
-Hard to fit your face, can get on the way of goggles,classes and hats .

Very good air flow
Smells nice
Nice fit Moldable
After some work it fits full seal glasses well

Hard to manipulate
takes work to get just right
allows you to have a cap over it
dose not actually look as cool as the picture

+ Sturdy construction, breathable mesh
+ Protects your whole lower face, ears included
- It is really bulky. It somehow is big outside, but cramped inside.
- Cheeks are a bit wide, so there were some issues with aiming
- The shape doesn't contour very well, at least to my face, so the areas to the side of the nose were digging painfully into my cheek.
- Had issues fitting with my goggles, there was a worrying gap between them
- Weird shape, had to get into a specific area for my mouth to feel comfortable, but then that position is lower, so I can't look down and aiming is even harder than it already is.

"I got this product awhile back and personally, I don't like it too much. Its very hard to wear with goggles and a hat so I decided to just not use it. I would recommend one of the smaller Gen1 carbon steel lower face masks, but thats just my personal preference.

-Protects ears, mouth, and nose
-Good quality

-Doesn't look all that cool
-Hard to put on
-Very bulky
