We have had some really good feedback regarding the size (or lack thereof) of our Tactical masks. Thank you.
A couple of things to note:
1. Our mask is designed to fit 96% of the World's population. Our current SUM mask is designed to fit 98% of the World's population and during the 2+ years of our research in the Tactical market, we heard over and over that the SUM mask was too big for the Tactical market. This is why we designed the new Tactical mask just a tad bit smaller. Since we all have different face sizes and nose sizes it is impossible for a mask manufacturer, including us, to make one mask that fits everyone.
If you have not had a chance to try our mask on, we thought it might be helpful to show pictures of the mask compared to a mask from another manufacture that you may be familiar with:
If you fit into the 96% - here is what it looks like compared to another mask on the market:
If you fit into the 4% - here is a comparison of how the mask may fit you:
2. Another thing to note is the proper way to wear the mask. We have noticed on some of the pictures on this forum that the wearer was unnecessarily exposing extra skin on the neck/chin area due to improper positioning of the mask. Following are pictures to help show the proper vs. improper way to wear the mask:
Hopefully this helps to clear up any confusion out there regarding the coverage of the mask. There is talk of creating a larger version of this mask in the future - we will keep you posted on the new developments as they get closer........

Now to the mask. Being the cynic that I am I would say that the hat gives the illusion of more coverage than the pics without a hat. I dunno if this was an intentional ploy or not. Having said that, I like what i see in the save phace mask. My only reservation is not having to try it on before ordering it- and none of the local paintball stores in my area carry them.
Thank you for that observation. I hadn't even noticed that they wear wearing their hats with only the Save Phace masks. It was not intentional. Here are comparison shots of the mask being worn with a hat and without a hat:
And just in case anybody was wondering, the only reason that the larger model was wearing the forehead protector is because that was the closest different mask to our photo shoot and I wanted to show some variety. Here is the larger model wearing the mask without the forehead piece - just in case you were wondering......
Any other masks for comparison??? What other pictures would you like to see?
