Alright so here is my problem. I need a mask that could breath. I have a proflex and a profiler. I love the way the proflex breath but your sight picture isn't that great. I also love my profiler sight picture but I hate how they don't breath very well. So I need a mask that has a good view and can breath.
Do you guys have any suggestions?

What do you mean by sight picture? Both offer a wide lens with full peripheral vision.

You might like VForce Morph masks - they use the same lens as the Profiler but have a construction much more similar to JT masks in how the face guard come down further but is a bit more open.

As in your field of view. The profilers seem to have more field of view. Get what i'm saying?

Grills all the way. I love my grills. They are very light, breathable, never fog, has very soft bottoms, and are very comfortable. Id check them out. They are worth the price.

I'll vote for the Grill as well. Though a word of warning, my wife's Grill warped slightly so that the lens doesn't fit properly now. I'm trying to fix it (with a heat gun), but she bought a Dye I3. She hasn't played in it yet, so the jury is still out on that one.

Try a Grill, and see if it suites your liking. I like my Proflex, it's got great air and lightness, and I think it has good visibility.

I dont understand why you are saying the flex doesnt have good vision. It is one of the best in my opinion.
I have had a grill, profiler, and flex, and flex is by far the best mask I have used.

Maybe i'll try the grills when I get some money.
I'm mean vision in the flex isn't bad but to me it's nothing to brag about.

Well, its just as good as a grill or filer. Actually, I think it may be better than a grill.
Remeber, I have used both...

Try some E-vents maybe? I'm getting a pair soon and from what I've heard they breath well and the FOV is so good that you forget you have a mask on.

The problem with choosing a mask is what works for some won't work with all.

What you need to do is just go to a paintball store (or field) and just try a bunch of masks on.

Then see what features you like and narrow your search.

I know I didn't recomend a mask here, but (outside of features like easy changing lenses in a profiler) a name is just a name.

They don't really...they are a great mask and I wouldn't trade it for any other, but the venting isn't that great.

Now that's irony.
