High levels of comfort, plenty of peripheral vision, and protection are what make the Annex series such a great paintball goggle. All Annex goggles include the standard features, a thermal lens to prevent fogging, comfortable foam, patented quick release lens, and angled ventilation.

We left my wife's E-Flex at home accidentally and needed a mask in a hurry but didn't want to spend a whole lot. These fit comfortably over her glasses and wrapped around well past her ears.

For the record, these are the same masks as the MI-7 but with soft rubber around the edges. The softer rubber makes them more comfortable and looks a bit better, but that's personal opinion.

Going back to the protection behind her ears, this was an unexpected bonus at the game. Someone from the other team got behind her and she took a shot that was protected by the MI9s that would not have been protected by her Flex's.

She also found the MI9 to be more comfortable with her glasses and visibility on par with the Flex's.

The only complaint is that the smaller holes mean there's less ventilation for breathing. This makes things kind of hot in the mask but it never fogged even in a chilly morning where we saw lots of other masks fogging. She actually likes the smaller holes because less paint gets through when she takes a face shot.

I guess it says something when someone chooses to make a $50 mask their first choice over a $100 mask. The ventilation may bug some people but the trade off of reduced paint coming through the holes is worth it.

Off the back I wasn't expecting amazing but it was a decent bang for a budget buck. Its good for any starting or budget player. It comes fully-loaded from the start with a thermal lens, visor, and chin strap for no extra $$. It has some different colored lens options to buy from in case of preference or situation for a low cost. The mask it self comes in a good range of basic colors.

I want to start out by saying this is an excellent mask. It meets all of my expectations; it doesn't fog (ever), it was a wide field of view, and it is extremely comfortable. I also happen to love the way the mask looks aesthetically, very cool looking. My only concern is the lenses are prone to scratching if you don't maintain and store them properly, however the scratches can be avoided by using a microfiber for cleaning and a mask bag for storing.
IMO this mask offers all the features of the more expensive "pro masks" while somehow being less than half the price. Amazing
