Very cool looking masks. Two problems....1 you will have extremely poor peripheral vision and 2 you may have problems finding or changing lenses.

Peripheral vision is a very big deal in woodsball....not so much in speedball. If you cant see to the left or right of your mask then you cant see someone sneaking up on you. Five years playing, thats just my opinion.

You might do better buying a grillz, flex or another mask and paint it with a cool face.

Dunno how they can be any good - probably have bad airflow, they don't have a big lens, which restricts visibility, plus, I don't see how u could hear well in them.

It's like the save phace masks - they suck, except these look somewhat cooler.

Yea that's exactly what i thought, your completely blind with that mask on, im sure it has some pads inside so that makes you eye further away from the lens and that makes it bad cuz you probably see the inside of the mask more than the outside

Thank you

Looks heavy, hot, and probably has poor ventilation. You'd be sacrificing a lot of cash and comfort just for aesthetics.

I'm wondering if these masks even meet the specifications for a paintball mask.

Since they state nothing about ASTM certification... don't use it for paintball. They do however mention testing it themselves by shooting it w/ a paintball then suggest you test it yourself before playing, sounds real scientific.

I guess if you want to run around looking all Army of Two then use it to play airsoft.

Have you ever played speedball? You need to have good vision in speedball just as much as in woodsball. As for the mask, those don't even look safe for paintball. Theres also no vents so it would probably be like having your head stuck in an oven. I wouldn't get them. Go with something like some flexs or grillz

While it would be damn cool, the issue is lenses. If they lenses met the standard, give them a try. If not...

Stay the hell away from them for paintball. ^ others said test them yourself before using. NO don't buy them period. Not certified= NO USE. Polycarbonate lens probably OK, but is probably good enough when the lens could shatter into your eye if it fails. In fact most if not all companies tell you to replace their CERTIFIED lens yearly. So I wouldn't risk it.

You can wear shorts and a tank top to the field and give up alot of protection, but never a mask.

Just adding this. You might have issues at certain fields if they feel uncomfortable that its not a paintball approved mask.

Well as if you need another opinion but here's mine. Just to recap what others have already said.

1 - No vents - so you'll probably have fogging issues.
2 - No safety certifications. - Use at own risk...in fact most fields probably won't let you onto the field with them on.
3 - Limited field of view
4 - Limited hearing


What about lens replacement support ????

The only way I would wear something like this is for a non-playing photo op where I wanted to look cool...otherwise stick to vents, JT's or other certified mask.
