i've owned this mask for the better part of a decade, at one point using it religiously every weekend. i bought this mask in 2003, i have not changed the eye-foam piece but once, 2 months ago. the foam was at the point of failure from fatigue. not from sweat eating away at it, not from tearing, but fatigue.

in terms of coverage: i'm an average-profiled person, face wise, and the mask covers my face with no problem. of the times i've been gogged, the ones that didn't get the lens and hit around the mouth didn't do that great of a job keeping the paint itself from going through (but in all reality, what mask does, right?) however of the few times this has happened, the mask itself took no damage, and still to this day has shown no signs of damage in those areas.

my impression: great mask, i wish they still made them. i'll agree with another reviewer on here, though, the ears are a gimmick, at one point i believed they helped, but they don't. of course, i've learned to hear around them and understand where a shot has been fired within a quadrant (split a 360 into fourths, basically within one of those 90* areas)

JT Paintball Proteus 2 Talk about a great mask, it is very comfortable and no matter how hard I tried I could not get it to fog. You could hear great out of it and you are able to talk with out feeling like your in a box....

Talk about a great mask, it is very comfortable and no matter how hard I tried I could not get it to fog. You could hear great out of it and you are able to talk with out feeling like your in a box. I would suggest this to anyone.

JT Paintball Proteus 2 I used to wear this mask all the time, but it never appealed to the looks of what I preferred. Great options with flex compatibility.

Face it, JT has the best goggle systems in existence. The proteus gives you a mask that sits much closer to the face than any of their other masks. If thats important to you, give em a look. Current flex/spectra frames and lenses are completely interchangeable.
