Features Rubber construction Rubber "Dumbbells" slot into common ANSI rated goggles, such as the ESS Profile and Revision Desert Locust goggles Eliminates lower face mask gap when wearing goggles Rubber construction designed to absorb and distribute the energy of an incoming BB Allows user to comfortably aim without needing to cant or tilt their heads, like when using traditional lower face protection
When presented with a challenge sometimes the best solution is one that doesn't exist yet. This was the catalyst for this face protection design. I was in need of something that would save my mouth and nose but the requirements didn't end there. The mask needed to be minimal to allow for down sight aiming. It had to be comfortable, breathable, stylish and easy to mount. All these goals were achieved in a surprisingly small and extremely light package.
If you have tried any airsoft mask you know there are always compromises and the biggest one is comfort, both in how the mask feels on your face and how it changes the way you use it when interfacing with an airsoft replica. Metal or plastic mesh mask are designed to prevent BB strikes through sheer resistance and so they bulky and stiff which makes it awkward to aim down sights. To avoid this the BEM Essentials Face Protection is made of flexible rubber, designed to absorb and distribute the energy of an incoming BB. It sits tight around the contour of the user's face and allows for snag free, tilt free, compromise free aiming down sights, just rest your cheek on the stock like you would without the mask and aim freely, no need for risers or for tilting your head 45 degrees.
When it comes to breathability this mask is hard to beat, with large (but not large enough for a 6mm BB) holes in front of an elongated mouth pop out, the mask allows for massive amounts of fresh air. The nose section is also a large channel for air to exhaust, it is protected from all sides and directs the air downwards away from the goggles. Additionally, heat and breath air can vent out the sides. All these outlets prevent the fogging of goggles and further enhance the airsoft experience.
Lastly the mask had to be easy to attach and had to stay in place. The usual solution is to add straps and I hated that option. The goggles on your face already have a strap that keeps them firmly attached to your head, with that in mind I devised a system that allows for quick attaching and detaching. Included are 3 sets of "dumbbells" these are stretchable and come in 3 sizes. You simply put on end through the button hole opening on the mask and the other through a mesh like portion on the underside of the goggles (ESS Profiles, Revision Desert Locusts). The rubber "dumbbells" pull the mask up to the goggles but allow it to stretch and bend as needed. Because the mask and goggles now become one the mask never slides down and prevents gaps from forming, it also takes any pressure off it resting on your nose. With this setup you will never leave your mask behind and have a bad day as they are always attached but can be moved to any other large style compatible goggle.
We called the face protection "The Essentials" as that is the goal, protect the most vulnerable parts of the face, mouth, nose and cheeks that hurt the most when hit. This mask is not designed to be the ultimate BB avoider but it will keep you looking and feeling cool, fog free and for the most part you will forget you are even wearing it, which is the ultimate goal.

(Write a review) "It's cash, buy one. Mark did a phenomenal job designing it. "I got this mask directly from brainexploder before it was on evike. Seriously, best mask I have ever owned and I have tried different types of mesh masks, paintball masks, etc.
First, it is crazy lightweight. Its made of a flexible rubber with a hard polymer insert to protect your teeth and it basically feels like nothing. Most of the time, I forget I am even wearing it as i'm playing. Second, the attachment system is super straight forward and secures to my ESS profiles really well. Creates a nice tight seal between the mask and the goggles. Third, the low profile design and bendability makes it easy to acquire a proper cheek weld to look down sights. No need for optic risers or drop stocks when you are rocking this mask. Lastly, the breathability is top notch. This one is important to me because I usually have a lot of fogging issues due to the fact that I have to wear glasses. But with this mask, you can breathe freely and the mask is designed to push down the air that you exhale. Its awesome.
Do yourself a favor and buy this mask! "Airsoft Must
I bought one straight from the brain exploder website with the ESS profiles and there literally one of my top 5 best purchases of all time. I have minimal to no fogging issues (which says a lot because a f**king sweat alot) 10/10 would buy again.
Only thing that docs it is that itâ€™s so slim that it doesnâ€™t protect the cheeks (by design) so if you donâ€™t like getting shot there I would recommend getting some sort of balaclava Write a Review
