Good mask?

Hey guys, I still rock the JT Spectra Flex-7 from back in the day... see no need to upgrade...

But my lady is coming with me this weekend, and I don't want her to use a "fog-every-time" rental mask.

Are there any relatively cheap ($50-70) masks that are fog-proof/resistant that I can get her and have as a backup mask for me?

I use an X-Armor Impact II from Wal-Mart as my main mask, actually. Never fogged and super comfey! Even more comfey than my Flex-8's. If you want to go a little higher, the Tippmann masks can be okay, if you get the right one.
Both are around $20.

Get another proflex(flex7). They are great masks. I've owned a lot of high-end masks and always end up going back to my proflexes. They are only $65 brand new or you can find used ones for $40ish.

If you don't go with the flex you should get the spectra, its like the flex but with hard parts.

This is the best way to go, or buy used from here on the Nation.

Empire Events are a great mask. You can find them dirt cheap on ebay as well.

Invert Helix Thermal goggles. $31 brand new. Just make sure you get the one with thermal lenses.

I'll also put in a vote for JT Pro flex at the $50-$70 range, very comfortable, looks great, and very customizable.

Do not get any goggles that say fog-resistant or thermal cured. It's Thermal lens or bust.

Too bad i didn't chime in earlier. Was gonna say ProShield (aka Spectra, aka Flex with hard ears & hard bottom.. making it not flex...).

I tired suggesting that, there isn't much difference between them and the flexs
