Best mask for large face

So although it all comes down to opinion, I have been wondering what other people think that the best masks if you have a larger face. Take into consideration comfort, visibility, and coverage of face/ head. My vote goes to Dye i3s.

Every face/head is different, so choose the one that best fits your large face and playing style.

'Large face' is rather ambiguous. Is it wide? Long? Strong/lantern jaw (Jay Leno)? Large forehead? Nose and mouth protrude from forehead area (dog face)? etc, etc, etc...

After all that, how do you wear your mask? High strap in the back? low strap? high on the forehead? Low across the brow line? Headband? Sandana? Beanie?


As you see there's just way too many variables to give you the 'blanket' info you seek. The only way to really have a proper thread like this would be to have ~10 different people post pics of themselves wearing every mask for a comparison.

Good luck!

I rock double strapped profilers, and i love them. They cover more of my face then E-flexes, which are my 2nd choice. Eflex foam is super comfy but profilers just sit on my face better.

Im 6'5 with a XL head lol so i need wide and long mask

i have a bigger face and rock a double strapped I4's. Also wear double bandana's. My cheek bones stick out a little bit but never been hit there. I just like the feel of my I4s over the I3's which is what i started with. I also have some flexs
