I have a Proto Switch FS ( as the title ) and it is one of the best masks I must say.
I've had it since April, and now I will say the good and the bad:

The Good review:
The FS is extremely comfortable, with padding on the eyes and on the forehead, and also the ears. So overall the mask forms to your face very well.
Theres plenty of vents, so the mask is very breathable.
There plenty of adjustment in the rear strap, so it won't be falling off your head, and the chin strap makes an even tigher fit.
I've read things like its heavy, it's not heavy at all.
The thermal lenses do an amazing job of keeping the fog away, but they seem to have problems with splitting if they get wet, but of course, its only glue holding them together.

"The lense swap"

1. Take the strap out of the little cover things
2. Twist up the two locks
3. Pull the locks out
5. Take the lens frame out
6. Swap the lenses
7. Do the opposite in reverse order

All can be done in under 5 minutes easy!

The Bad review:
As said above, the thermal lenses seem to have problems with splitting apart, so you have to make sure they dont get wet.


Well that's about all I can comment on!

:ph34r: Pm for any more info :ph34r:

My lense fogs too. But I have had mine for almost a full year now. A new lense will fix that right up. But other than that I love it. It is very comfy.
