Buy 'blink powered night vision contacts' they are only like 200 and go on your eyes and are powered by blinking.

Is it really necessary? You could use all that money and just buy tons of paintballs and shoot everywhere.

Or for about 15 bucks buy a flashlight and some duct tape tape the flashlight on to the end of your barrell and it will work fine and save $3300. Just an idea

guys dont bash him because he wants to spend his hard earned cash. He can buy what he pleases. Plus it would be kickass to be shot by a guy with nightvision goggles. Id be like "**** guys he has Nightvision!"...

But seriously i dont think it would work with a mask...

only way i can see it working is if u did exact measurments of the nightvision lenses and the goggles and cut precisely to make it fit in flush with the mask..that would be ooo so badass if it worked out right

I'm gonna go with it's not going to work well at all and you might as well bring around a digital camera with low-light enhancement (basically night vision). That way, you even get zoom! OMG! HAX SNIPE?

just because you spent $2000 on a marker doesn't mean you will play better than the kid with his $5 sling shot and bag of paintballs.

I love people that use night vision for night paintball. I use a cheap pair from the russian closeout on eBay around 5 years ago.

Put a switch for the light. When I play at night I look for other people using night vision so I know where they are and have a nice bright target to shoot at and only use mine sparingly so beware, alot of people do this.

As someone who's spent whole nights on NVGs over many years in all conditions (25 yrs army) I can tell you that the eye relief between your eyeball and the NVG is important to the effectiveness of the device. Even having a pair of glasses between NVGs and the eyepiece is something you have to tinker with to get it working right.

However, I've never worn NVGs with a paintball mask. I certainly wouldn't spend a ton of money on something that might actually be useless to you. Perhaps you can try this experiement. Take a pair of binos and look through them with your mask on, that's the bare amount of vision you will get with NVGs. The appeture for most NVgs is actually pretty small. NVGs are designed to sit right on your eye (brow), so all you see is the entire world in night vision, as opposed to looking through a straw. You might want to find someone with a par and try them out first.

I hope this thread is a joke. $4,000 on something as useless as this is nuts.

yeah, like someone said about the flashlights, as soon as you run into someone with a flashlight with your night vision you're going to get boned. In addition to hurting your eyes, I think it can screw up the goggles...Just get a flashlight and don't possibly destroy 4k on something like this..Possibly a red one? Aminals can't see it, maybe it works on stupid people?
