Unfortunately they have discontinued Vantage Pro and I donīt have a good alternative. I mostly agree with othersī comments, here is few downsides .
Helix (thermal) - very bad lens quality since 2 layers of the thermal lens come apart and water gets in the middle.
Proto rental (single and thermal) - not comfortable to wear, feels very cheap to wear. Lens get scratched very easily.
Proto EL (single and thermal) - cheap lens (when bought by packs), but donīt last long since they scratch very easily (when clients happen to wipe with gloves).
Vantage field (single) - rubbery foam not very comfortable, foam gets broken (little cracks) after few months. Otherwise easy to clean and fast to dry.
VForce Armour (single) - cheap plastic feel and could be little more comfortable to wear. No color options. Otherwise lasts long in rental.
Since I can not get Vantage Pro any more, can any1 recommend something which is not commented here before (with very scratch resistant lense like vForce armour single)?, I do not agree to offer cheap goggle experience (like many of the cheap rental goggles seem to be made for) and price of the goggles is no problem, replacing lens has to be cheap tho. Any experienced field using Tippmann?, how do JT lens last?, how about SLY?
Try the MI-3, 5, or 7 from Sly/Valken. We don't run a field but people seems to love them.
