This was my first paintball mask, and I have to say I wasn't dissapointed.

For beginner masks, this hands down the best bang for your buck. The mask was extremely comfortable, foam was good quality. Breathing and communication was easy. The lense is nice and wide, however, it isn't thermal. Mine lasted two months before it started fogging, in which case you could just buy the thermal one and that'd last you alot longer.

The mask was made of hard plastic, but honestly, chances are a paintball is going to break if it hits your mask, so I really didn't consider it a large weakness. For 40$, you get a comfortable, durable, and overall great mask.

Proto Paintball El Switch It's great! At least if you are playing during the day. If you play at night then you will want to get a thermal lenses for it.

Proto Paintball El Switch for me, the lens fogged up really easily, despite playing in low humidity weather and keeping the lens very clean. fairly comfortable though.

Proto Paintball El Switch For your first mask its great only lasts about a year. you must buy the thermal lens to stop the foging up and just cut off the chin strap.
