I havent been able to find any posts on the neoprene masks out. All I can find are random comments. Can anyone tell me some details on how good it works paired with goggles of course. Im looking for any info you can give me. I don't like how I cant get a cheek weld with my paintball masks so im looking at this option. The balaclava or shemaga (sp?) are not options alone for me. I don't think they will offer enough protection. So id like some info on comfort, how it feels to get shot, how you can breath and any other things you feel like adding. Thanks, Major

I'm not sure exactly what type of Neoprene masks you mean, but I have a Masque. It is meant for skiing. It is thin and flexible but it has enough padding to keep you from getting welts, bloody lips, or chipped teeth. A 300fps hit still stings a little but it won't do any damage. I like it because it covers the nose, but has a hole underneath so you can still breath and some pin holes over the mouth so you can breath but your teeth are still protected. The only drawback is that when you wear it with goggles the hot air goes out the top of the masque and directly into your goggles. On a cool day they fog up.

Here's a link: http://www.modernmou...p...ct&id=18723

Thick winter balaclavas have plenty of padding for airsoft.

That is the one I am mainly refering to. Im sure it will be pretty warm in the summer but winter is on its way so that wont be an issue for long. I have a Blackhawk balaclava and it seems padded but im pretty sure a pellet would still have a nice sting. Might be good for the winter though over the neoprene deal since I am cold natured. What do you do about your goggles in the winter then if it fogs them up? I wonder how the rainx for the inside of car windows would work since thats sopposed to stop fogging on car windows. Major

I put some scuba mask stuff on my goggles. It doesn't completely stop the fogging but it helps it go away a lot quicker. They don't have a chance to get fogged up so bad I can't see.

The evike one is nice although I haven't been able to use it in an event yet. Get the green because if you prefer black you can flip it inside out, its always good to have an option of green.

I put RainX on the outside of my goggles, I did not do the inside because it says on the bottle that it is an eye irritant.

There are two types of RainX. One is meant for the inside of glass and helps with fogging and the other is the older kind that goes on the outside to make water run off. Which one did you use and how is it working so far?


Im curious how it will fell wearing the Neoprene mask when you get hit. Does it seem thick enough to stop you from having red dots on you if were to get shot or would you use some other protection other than eye to supplemnt it? Something like a balaclava or some type of wrap.

How about using something like these along with the neoprene mask? No fogging problems and they're plenty tough enough for airsoft use. a-thumbsup.gif

That's just as unsafe as a mesh mask, so don't even think about it.

Those are not even safe for woodworking! I work in the construction industry and and debris would be in my eyes all day long. Tests have been done (see pined topic about mest masks) and I wouldnt wear one if my life depended on it!

I personally wear WileyX and ESS goggles along with a football/sports mouth piece for eye and teeth protection, if your worried about your skin a nice addition is the Under Armour Balaclava in which they sell in both heat and cool gear.

I use bolle t800's and an OE tech OD shemagh, since I am an arab, it gives me that terrorist look, once you learn how to tie the shemagh the right way it stays on perfect and is very light weigh, plus combined with goggles, gives you total head protection. Its pretty thick cotton too.

For your goggles fogging up whip some biodegradable camp soap around the inside near the egdes. A thats what the air force does.

I have a pair that I use. The guy at the army surplus store said that they were ansi rated. They are shatterproof, however they can get scratched up pretty easily. I still tested mine, 330 fps at point black and they did fine.

I suggest rubbing a LITTLE bit of shampoo on the inside of you goggles. A little hockey trick that works miracles.
