probably email Don to check. Willing to bet some stores are stocking up and selling gen 3 ears. but most likely gotta go right to the source for the gen 3

I believe all colors, or at least it would make sense to start producing them with the new foam.

I got shot in the face this past weekend and the paint came between the lens and the mask up into my eyes. It happened to two of my teammates as well so it isn't just my mask. Is there any way to stop this? It is really not a cool feeling to think you just got shot in the eye.

A response from Sly about this would be great. I am about to order a profit, but after seeing numerous posters post about this problem I am once again hesitant.

More or less, the explanation I got for it is that I put my lens in wrong. Apparently a lot of people do? I don't know.

But yeah that feeling really sucks.

I did that before its the locking tab things and how if they get caught or obstructed by the strap end.

I can breathe fine in them. Compared to events, I didn't notice a huge difference.

Yeah i have seen that explanation previously. The only problem with it is that that the mask i was using was brand new out of the box and the lens had not been altered from the factory.

Definitely not a food feeling at all. Hope they come up with something to address this.

^^^ Have to agree - I have two Profits and they both had the "paint between the lens and frame and onto the face" problem right out of the box... no matter how I try to install the lens the problem persists... this appears to be a design flaw that needs to be addressed as a priority from Sly!!

IMO I found it difficult to breathe. But honestly, try them on yourself to see if you like them.

Sly really needs to address this issue before someone gets hurt...Are there any safety regulations and/or standards for paintball masks? Seems like something like this would definitely cause the Profits to be deemed unsafe...

It's a lower end mask than the profit. Same design as the tippman mask.
