Largest Peripheral Vision

Hey:

I'm looking for a new mask with the largest peripheral vision. I'm currently using a SLY PROFIT after using a DYE I4 and before using a Empire PROFLEX. I notice I have a lot of issues with my peripheral vision inside the mask and wonder what mask has the best visibility? Or could it be that I'm wearing my mask wrong?

Cheers on any info.

I would try the vio. All I've ever used was proflex and flex, but switching to vio I noticed more vision. Then again just go to your local shop try on masks and see what fits your needs.

I just got my vios the other day, played with them this weekend and loved them and I can't find one thing wrong with them. But the new C2 Eyons will be out sooner or later and the mask is basically all lens so I would think it will have great peripheral vision.

Most of that lens on the C2 cant even be seen when wearing the mask... Look closely at the pictures of them.

OP, personally I have never found a lens that has a smaller range of vision than my own eyes but maybe Im weird. I would pick a mask based on all other factors before the size of the lens personally but the Vio, Profiler and i4 seem to have the largest range of vision.

I4, vios, proflexes, e flexes, grillz, klrs, profits are gonna all offer a field of vision greater than what the human eye is capable of detecting. The upper tiers of masks function all the same for the most part; some may breath a bit better or have slightly better acoustics, but for the majority of it, they're the same. Best thing you can do is try them on to see which one fits/feels the best for your face. If you can't try em on, just go with the mask you like the looks of most.

No personal experience with the klr, but guys who I play with say they don't breath well, hard to talk with, bad ventilation and I guess the foam is coming apart which might be a recall.

Try V Force Profilers. I used to have a set, and they were some of the most comfortable goggles I have ever worn. Plus, the lenses are AWESOME and give a great field of view.

I just put on Grillz, i4, Profit and Spectra. The only pair I saw more than a slight black line on the edge of my vision (when straining my eyes to the left and right) were the Spectra's.

I have never understood how people have issues with peripheral view in any high end mask.

Best lens vision wise for me was the profiler by a long shot, without thermal pane (just the original "thermo cured") it is the clearest and most open lens.

I've been wearing Profilers forever. Love the view on them.

Klr are fantastic field of view. Very similar with i4.

Im gonna go with the Vforce Profilers also. Great looking mask with a huge lens that takes like 5 seconds to take out and clean. Can see pretty much 100%
