Ok so i've been playing for a few years now so not really a newb. Just wondering if anyone has a camo mask and if its worth getting? Also what are the good ones? Thanks.

If you are looking for a specific pattern you might want to try a Save Phace So Phat series mask. They come in Multicam, (which is the one I have) MARPAT, and ACU. They have removable foam that can be washed and replaced if needed, the periphial vision is great too, the lense area may look like it wouldnt have good periphials but the part that the foam attaches too is short so it keeps the mask close to your face as opposed to most other masks that keep the mask miles away from your face thus requiring a larger lense for the same amount of periphials as a save phace. The So Phat Series comes with a single and thermal lense, a mask bag, a removable visor, and a removable forehead protector. It goes for about $70-$80.

They also have the Diss Series which only comes with a single lense and no bag and no removable foam, but still has the visor and forehead protector. Its like $50-$60 and comes in a green/OD, tan, woodland and realtree.

I have a So Phat series Boo (which is the multicam one) and it matches my multicam attire. The lens is easy and quick to change for cleaning, the thermal lense doesnt fog, and the single lense would be good if you controlled your breathing. The Save Phace masks are made of a hard plastic rather than soft rubbers which some people may not like but I am fine with it as I never got any bounces on my old V-forces soft rubber visor... and you wont get any ear damage due to having a mask with soft ears. However aside from no bounces it is possible for you to get deflections (I got 1 off of the forehead protector). There has been some flak on the mask of the coverage it gives. and it covers my face well, but if you have a big head it may not be the best choice for you. However I got a chance to wear a Dye I4 recently and my Save Phace covers my face better than the Dye I4, but something like a JT flex8 would have better coverage than a Save Phace.

Heres a picture comparison to some other masks I have, and some profile views.

You can buy camo (Pro)Flex(7/8), i4s, most VForce masks, etc so finding a mask isnt that hard. Youre better off knowing what you want in a mask and then trying to find a camo version of it.

JT has good cheap masks. But if you have money you need to get Empire E-Vents. They have urban digi camo, green digi camo and blue digi camo. I have the urbam digi ones and they are light and the coolest thing is NO FOG AT ALL!!! They can also be found in red, black, yellos, blue and more.

I roll a JT Radar, they're decent. A little hard to take apart, but decent masks.

Or a Proto/Dye mask but the new Axis dont have camo yet(as far as I know), just all black.

I agree with T, I dont like hard masks. If you get shot in them its almost scarey and theyre not as comfortable for obvious reasons. Theyre also generally heavier.

I have a cut switch so its smaller and more flexible, grillz, flex, and a flex8 a friend left with me. I think I have a EVent that another friend left with me (they dont play much). Events are ok but if you have to put sound buffers in a mask, I dont think its worth buying. The new ones look more legit though so we'll see.

ive found that v force is pretty good i used to own a proto swift i think that was one of their brand names, it always fogged up on me. I never had that problem with v force. that just my two cents
If you can't hack it, then I suggest you pack it!

Proto is a brand O_o

Anywho, swift isnt their "top" mask, The axis is and you pay for what you get. VForce coating, while its awesome, does wear off over time. Thermal lenses only separate over time. Ha

I can only say good things about the V Force Grill. Great vision, comfortable, never fogs, and its a low profile. Actionvillage.com has them on sale for $70 right now.
