A mask that works well with glasses?

I'm looking for a new mask but need one that's comfortable enough to wear with glasses. I need glasses to see distance, so they are a must when balling. I've been using my Proto Switch FS and they are ok but they do jam into my glasses sometimes and become uncomfortable.

Does anyone have a mask that is comfortable while wearing glasses?

I'm going to head to my local store and see what they have but I want some in field feedback on a mask that works with glasses.

Before it even comes up, I'm not switching to contacts! I've tried contacts in the past and I don't like them.

Thanks for any help!

Thanks for pointing me to that but it really doesn't give in field feedback on a good pair of goggles with glasses.

I went to my local store and tired on E-Vents, they seem to fit best with my glasses on so I'm going to give them a shot. Hopefully they are still comfortable while running around on a field.

Since those are personal preferences, these threads usually go into "This Mask VS. This Mask" pretty quickly, and usually someone will recommend I wear contacts.

None of that here. Just facts and info.

Background: I wear a ProFlex now - I wore Profilers and a I3 in '07 and Flexs pre-'07 with my glasses - My glasses aren't huge like that Erkle kid, they have flexible frames with plastic lens so they don't break - I got them to wear while playing sports.


So, here's my secret formula:

Only two things really matter when it comes to wearing glasses under a paintball mask:
1 - Does the mask fit my face and over my glasses comfortably?
2 - Does the mask have the option to add a fan ('cause your glasses will eventually fog.)
3 - refer to #1 & #2


That's it! Find a mask that fits you. Don't ask me 'cause I don't know!

Play Hard! Play Safe!

That thread has the info you need. Honestly, you shouldn't trust our 'in field feedback' since our situation is different than yours. Find a mask that fits you comfortably, and find a good anti-fog solution for your glasses. That is the best advice.

Good luck.

Vforce profiler work good but the new lenses are terrible. They just don't hold up.

I've always heard good things about Profiler's with glasses, my best friend swears by it.

i wear glasses full time and i picked up a pair of sly profits, they work great and are super comfortable. I use fogdoc on my glasses just as a precaution. The profits are amazing.

I wear glasses and ended up buying the Empire Events. Very comfortable mask and gives plenty of room for your glasses. The lens doesn't crowd your eyes and the foam is cut out at the sides in case you have a wide frame. Usually, the masks I've tried fog up easy but these don't. They work perfect for me, love em. Cheap too. Grabbed mine on here for $50.

I can honestly say I've tried nearly every mask out there, except the Save Phaces and the old OG Stalker masks), and the only one that was bad with glasses are the V-Force Vantages.

My personal preferences are the Proflexes and Profilers.

Ive had good luck with i4s and profits, the grill isnt bad either. The events seemed to fog my glasses really bad.

I'm happy with the E-Vents purchase. I don't think any mask is going to be great with glasses but the Vents are defiantly an improvement and work good.
