Procaps Direct - V-Force Profiler Reviews
Procaps Direct V-Force Profiler I really loved the profiler when I was playing. However, when I started shooting photos, the lens was too curved and kept the camera far from my eye.

i really enjoy using this mask because of the field of view i get from it...
lenses seem to scratch pretty easy which is a draw back because i play at SC and Compound... both are mostly hard dirt with rocks...
the only real problem i have with this is that the instructions dont clearly explain how to take the lenses out...
ive had this for a year... just learned by watching video on youtube... which was kinda lame cuz you have people explaining how to take them off with phrases such as...
"lift this thing... pull that...pinch those..."

This was my first mask and overall it is amazing.
It looks very cool/intimidating. It's is EXTREMELY cost efficient. At 60 or 70 bucks, you can beat that. The lenses can be taken out in about 20 seconds. There's a lot of different lenses that are available for all types of playing conditions. The foam is amazing, very absorbent, soft, and doesn't rip. I wear glasses and I can wear them comfortably with the mask. I've been hit in the mask a few times too and not once was I hurt. It is insanely protective.

Unfortunately there really isn't much in the way of customization. They only offer one type of strap in a few colors. It doesn't have as great ventilation as flexs or i4s. The cheaper lenses are also a bummer because they get scratched and damaged easily. The first lens I had, the mirror gold coating deteriorated within a year of use. You gotta clean it with a microfiber cloth, NOT paper towels.

8/10 Great mask.

Not a lot to say about masks. The thermal lens does a pretty good job keeping it fog free. Plenty of foam around the eyes. Comes in many colors.I been using mine for about 2-3 years now. Only thing I would change is making the lens come out easier. It's not bad, but I know some are easier and quicker. You really can't go wrong with these.

Procaps Direct V-Force Profiler Really good mask for the money. It is easy to change lenses and clean. The only problem I have had is the coating on the lens is starting to wear off.

Cons: Flakeing of the thermal layer
I started wearing Profilers several years ago because of the field of view and they fit over my glasses perfectlly. They have come down in price so much now that I carry 3 pair in my gear bag so that I don't have to change out lenses for different conditions.

I have never had a problem with the foam and I have one pair that is probably over 5 years old.

Eventhough the lense is not double pane, it does have a thermal layer of something on it; I have never had a problem with the mask fogging...my glasses, yes, but never the mask.

That is my only gripe about the mask...if the lense stays wet for very long the thermal layer starts coming of in flakes, however, by the time it starts flaking, it is usually time to change the lense out anyway because of scratches!

All in all, the best bang for your buck for a mask!!
