So for all of you guys who bought these what do you think so far? I bought a Vio Contour last year but I'm not loving them. The Vio isn't super comfortable on my nose and I'm looking for another option.

Didn't like them -- ended up returning them. I bought it for the adjustable nose bridge, but when you start cranking it in, a gap starts to form in between the foam and front of the mask where air moves straight up from where you're breathing and starts fogging up the lens.

This won't be a problem for people that don't adjust the nose bridge, but for those that do, you might run into fogging issues.

For reference, I previously had Events that didn't fit well over the bridge of my nose, which is why I was excited about the Push goggles. However, all Dye goggles fit me awesomely. I moved on to I5s

I'm loving them. I think I got mine in early Feb. I'm just back into the game last Fall after being away from the game since the early 2000's. As a frame of reference, we used to wear JT or Vents without the facemask. Getting back in, I purchased a nice top of line goggle with a huge field of view.....

The Unite felt comfortable right out of the case. I adjusted the nose bridge just a little bit. No fogging issues for me. Much lighter than the other goggles. Noticeable as soon as I put them on. Field is view is great. Full view horizontally for sure. Easier to communicate with - other goggles I was getting a 'echo' & it was difficult for others to hear me. The magnetic chin strap is great. I leave it hanging until I crono. Easy to connect with one hand.

You sound a lot like me. I rocked a flex 7 for years. I pulled them out of the bag last summer after about 10 years off and the elastic was no longer elastic. I thought I'd like the Vio and it's not bad it just sits on my nose weird. I may let my kid have those if I end up getting the Unites.

Angry Dear Push Paintball

I pre-ordered a Unite Predator mask back in October. I did this through a local vendor because thats who I support. And I get that pre-order means I will be waiting for my item for awhile, and had no problem with that as all of the local fields were snow covered for several months. But I do expect to be one of the first to get the item.

A few weeks ago I was happy to see "Shipping next week". Here it is two (or three) weeks later and the masks are back to "Available Soon". 'Not a big deal', I say to myself I am surely my local vendor just forgot to update me that it was shipped out to me since it has been 7 months. So, I go to check with them ... Nope, they confirmed that it still hasn't shipped from Push.

'Thats strange', I think to myself. Maybe there is an update on Push's Facebook page. I understand delays between shipping and manufacturing issues (I get that sometimes shtf. Hell, preordered a tent via kickstarter that took 2 years from order to final delivery, with a 8 month delay due to a recall). But thats not the case, as the first post I see on Push's FB page is:

"We got some predator goggles at Living Legends this weekend! Stop by Push booth and pick up yours!"

So I gotta say: Where the **** is mine?

I think your local vendor is leading you on my friend. You can, and have been able to get them everywhere for some time.

The Unite mask has been available, this is the Predator Unite mask. The mask version that they are selling at Living Legends. The mask that Push even confirmed they have not shipped to my local vendor.

Hopefully they will, although I find the mask sits low enough that I can use a baseball cap sitting forward with it lol

I think that's the point. Back when the men were men and the sheep ran scared we did that with our JT masks.

Has anyone adapted other visors to fit yet? C'mon guys, we paintballers used to be creative folks.

That said, when I get mine, assuming no Push visor is yet available, I'll be seeing what I can mod up. I'm a visor kind of guy.

It's a damn $200 mask. JT's $45 pro shield comes with a visor. Wtf is the hold up? Blows my damn mind.

Someone modded an HK visor to fit. Not sure how much had to go into that, or where I saw that. But yeah, I'd MUCH rather have one from Push than throw another brand on top of it. That said, mine WILL have a visor by Living Legends.

I’m seeing people put their Grill visor on these, so maybe that works or even the Virtue Stealth visor?

Just options people can try

I use a virtue visor on mine because I wanted the fan (I wear glasses). It's clumsy looking and i did it with zip ties, but it works

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
