Wanted help identifying this mask/helmet. Couldn't find anything about them.

Also, post pics of your old school masks. I know some of you still use them, show em.

Are the lenses built into the masks construction or are they something that straps on over the mask? A lot of the really early systems were nothing but safety goggles strapped on top of a face mask. Some of the more common ones:

PMI/AGD Masks: Posted Image
and the common JT Whippersnappers: Posted Image

Some still use the JT Whippernappers goggles. They offer about the same protection a lot of "low profile" masks these days do with people taking off ear guards and such. Just make sure you install a new lens, they take the JT "elite" lens. I have a pair of Whippernappers I keep around for nostalgia and when doing technical work. They're very comfortable.

All it said was GOGGS above the lens, nothing else. Looked like the lens was just a piece of plastic snapped into the sides of the mask.
I thought it'd just be a cool collectible to have. Was gonna to make a mask (it'd be safe to play in, I'd test the crap out of it before I'd ever use it) out of carbon fiber that looks kinda like it.

I still own an original Woodstalk with the NSG logo on it, bought exactly 21 years ago in May, 1987, it was my 1st mask and I believe the first dedicated paintball mask ever made.

If you are interested I could take some pics...

I remember when the Vents Predator was THE mask to have...man I never did own one!!!

That, I believe, is an airsoft mask. I don't think it was ever used for paintball, and certainly wouldn't be safe to use, either.

I had the pleasure of playing at the Woodstalk field for a few years before it closed down. I had no idea how old the field actually was until I saw an add for their Woodstalk face shield in a 1988 magazine. I knew with the way "Woodstalk" was spelled and the 408 area code it was the same field.
