I have had my KLR for a little under a year now. I love the mask, I really do. It looks great and the lens change system works great. Overall, it is a great mask. But it does have its flaws.

For the price of this mask, there are some issues.

First off, the foam isn't the softest in the world. Personally, my old Dye I3 Pro mask was more comfortable in the foam and ears department.

The screws that are used also really should be used with Loctite. I have had a few unthread themselves and haven't had any issues since putting some Loctite on them.

I love the lens change system, but I was really hoping the "wings" of the mask that swing out to unlock the lens were made of stronger material. They do feel a bit on the flimsy side to me.

The issues above aren't deal breakers at all, I am nitpicking in all honesty. But for $135, those shouldn't even be issues in the first place so I mention them. With that said, I love this mask and it will be my go to mask for quite some time. If this mask were priced at about $90, it would be a no brainer and definitely the best value for a high end mask. At $90, I would even be able to excuse the issues I listed above.

I just used my KLR's this weekend and they are super comfortable and awesome looking. The only problem that I had with them was when I was removing the rain guard I had to pull off the forehead foam and re-stick it to the mask. Today I had to take a blowdryer and heat it up to really seal it back on so it wouldn't fall off mid-game. But other than that I would definitely recommend this mask to anyone with a bigger face compared to the dye i4's.

Out of Box the Klee come with a vent blocker on top of the lens / mask to take off you must simply ( not roughly ) remove / unglued the foam from the blocker itself . Even with the vent blocker gone my lens still fogged up , the I honestly traded mine for JT Proflexes & V-Force grillz . I would not buy this product

Don't get me wrong, this mask is AWESOME. My team is now rocking KLR's down at the WCO next weekend. The only real complain I have is the chinstrap comes with a button type system that attaches onto the mask by the ears. The female button things rattle when you move and it can be quite distracting. I might try prying them off if they really distract me while playing. But I'm picky. Besides that, the only other real problem is changing out the pivot locks... WHO STILL USES C-CLIPS? COMMON, they such a pain to take off. The foam could be a little thicker and a little more durable, but i'm used to pro flex and eflex foam which is just endless

I purchased these along with many other anticipatory HK fans and was INCREDIBLY underwhelmed. I think HK puts out some truly high quality products, but was really unhappy about the performance of this product. While the brand and visibility are unparalleled, the mask breaths very poorly and echoes terribly. Additionally, the actual mask material is a lot harder than I was hoping it would be. This is a good first try for HK in the mask market, perhaps I will try their next attempt, but I know I will certainly wait before jumping on the band wagon.

They sure look nice online and on the shelf but they sure don't hold up. Buddy of mine ended up using them for the 2nd day he owned them and he couldn't see through the fog and the foam wasn't holding. Just buy some Grillz you wont be disappointed with those.
