Great mask for somebody with a larger/longer face as the coverage is right where you would want it. Visibility is second to none as well as comfort, probably the most comfortable mask on the market. Lense change is quick and easy as well.
The mask is a bit stuffy, it needs more ventilation but never had an issue until the colder winter months. It really traps the warm air from your breath and even with everything worn properly and ensuring there is no rain guard in place I get fogging. Not something I wear in the winter now but toss on for spring through fall without issue.

In December I decided to finally upgrade my mask and spent a long time deciding between Profits and i4's. They seemed like extremely similar masks - both look good, have thermal lenses that can be easily changed, got good reviews, etc. I was having a really hard time deciding -- I liked the way the Profits looked but was concerned about complaints of fogging and lens scratching until I read some reviews on here about the customer service from Sly. Based on people's reports as well as Don listing his contact information on here, I decided to get a pair of Profits...

The first time I played with them, it was about 50 degrees out and sunny. After the first game the lens was so foggy that it literally looked like I was playing through a rainstorm. When I went to refill my hopper and tank I thoroughly wiped out the goggles. Halfway through the second game I was shooting at people by sound alone -- I couldn't see anything through the fog!!

I sent Don an e-mail but never got a response. This was right around Christmastime, so I assumed he was busy and decided that in case the lens was defective to buy a new lens, try that, and sort it out with Sly when I heard back from them. My new lens didn't fog at all...but after taking a paintball to the face once or twice I noticed that there are small scratches in a perfect circle where the paintball hit the lens. They will not buff out. One of the shots was a glancing blow that left a deep scratch across the middle of the lens. I am extremely careful with my equipment and clean it thoroughly after each use, but I've used this mask with the new lens three times now and the lens is already so scratched that it seriously impacts my vision on the field. I have e-mailed Don 2 more times now as well as calling him and leaving multiple messages and have yet to hear back.

I would not recommend this mask to anyone. Despite their claims that the lens fogging / scratching issues have been cleared up, I have experienced both. I would be willing to overlook this if their customer service was even half as good as people claim, but it's been almost 3 months and I have yet to hear back from them. I've basically given up on Sly. I would sell the mask, but I don't think it would be right to sell such an inferior product to someone. Instead, I will be buying a pair of i4's.

One of my favorite features of this mask is also a down fall. the mask has a very small profile so it won't get hit because it is sticking out from where you are ducked down but it doesn't protect the lower jaw/neck area very well. overall very good mask for the money and the camo version looks really cool

Best mask you can find yourself in the heat of battle wearing, extremely durable design and unmatched protection. A little hot in here sometimes but thats to be expected for the amount of protection this thing gives, I have i4's and these are way better in my opinion, if your a bigger guy and don't like the fit of i4 then the Profit's are for you.SLY Profit=WIN

SLY LLC Profit These masks are great overall but do lack in a few areas. You can barely hear anyone on the field while only hearing your own voice and breath.

I had bought a pair and they were fantastic. However the foam was a bit hard in which i do like but the main thing was shouting and breathing. It was hard to breath and hear and when you shouted, it felt as if you were shouting at yourself.

However i trimmed the ear peice and made some holes nd they are like new goggles. The slyss themselves are really good and people i know swear by them.

SLY LLC Profit Great mask, but the ears are a little too much padding and muffle hearing. The lens system is quality, and the double straps are a nice feature.
