"So, I have mixed feeling about this mask. Short answer is its not a piece of crap, looks cool, blocks shots, but its not all it says it is.
The plastic is solid, but flexible. Its rough around the edges, and taking some high grit to it will smooth out any annoyances. It should take any hit with little problem, and as far as being protection, you really cant complain. It does well to cover the chin, but it can hang low and you'll have a little issue with mobility. But you're not buying this to look fast and sleek, so you'll be alright.
The mesh is held in tight as far as I can tell, and the inner pads are removable but if you want to or not is debatable. You want it against your face by the pads, not the plastic, but if your nose is in the prong place, it'll squish annoyingly, even painfully. YMMV. Mouth is somewhat visible, if you want that or not, some sort of cover like a scarf, sock or balaclava is easy enough to slip under it.
Now the big issue. The Clip option Is debatable if it works. I really wish they offered some sort of adjust ability with this. Just a couple of inches extra. The slide adapters for the clips use simple pressure to keep them in the rails, but can be pulled out with ease if even a little bit of force is applied. Add in a decent set of full seal goggles that aren't super slim, and you'll be lucky if both clips will secure. Its not a simple process, and your rail clips WILL fall out, several times. Luckily, the head straps are more than effective and very low profile to fit under anything else comfortably. Tension straps are a bit of a pain though, so you'll want to spend time learning what works for you.
Overall, you're buying this for its looks first. It protects as well as any cut sheet of 1/8 inch plastic would, and against BB's, thats more than enough. Its flaws aren't a deal breaker, you just have to be willing to give concessions about strap management and you'll get the look you want.
OH! Almost forgot. buy a rail riser, or have a high profile optic. This WILL add an extra inch or two to your resting ADS profile. Assume
Fair price point.
Helmet clips are low quality and without the option of adjustments, one size fits...or it doesn't. Works better with Low profile, and slim eye-pro.
Could use a bit more give around the nose.
with any mask, pushes you from your cheek rest, adjust your sights as needed. Rail risers are suggested.
I like it, I'm working with it, and I really cant complain for the price. I'd simply like to see a bit more effort given to the Helmet mounting options. (If ya cant tell, I'm salty over it.)
"So I purchased this item in order to make a one piece helmet set up, however I was met with disappointed. The arc rail adaptors DO NOT stay in place, one good bump on the side will make the who mask fall off your helmet. Mounting the helmet in itself is quite difficult due to the adaptors being so poor. The mask itself is good to use as a stand alone lower face mask, it fits nicely and covers the face well with nice ventilation. It being solid plastic makes it hard to Aim down sights on rifle.
What I purchased the mask for I would rate it 1/5
The mask as a stand alone 4/5
Solid build to use as a stand lone lower face mask
Does not work with arc rail
Mask will fall off helmet with slight pressure to the side
Almost impossible to mount to helmet
