If you are buying low end, particularly from JT, one mask style you really ought to avoid are X-Ray derivatives. These masks are hot, not exactly comfortable, fog horribly, and give you a poor field of vision. The original PMI X-Ray was discontinued years ago, but variations are still produced by a couple of companies, primarily JT who produced the original. As a good rule of thumb, if it has an Elite lens, pass it up.

When I wrote that, the Vantage was either not out yet or was recently released. In most of the previews I read, they stated that it would be released with rubber instead of foam. From what I understood, it was designed to be a low maintenance rental / beginner mask. The rubber was advertized becuase, unlike foam lined masks, it is advisable to clean them by just running them under a hose.
As I stated in the post, I did not have experience with some of the masks I posted. I'll change it now.
EDIT: Nevermind, I clearly state in my description that "These masks come with foam that is supposedly very comfortable."
EDIT AGAIN: Sorry. I found the error you saw. It was elsewhere. It's fixed now.

One thing to note: I have been using the JT Flex 7 for about three years, now. I can fit my glasses (sunglasses, but hey) underneath with no problem. A few times I took my mask off, then went to look for my shades, only to realize they were still on my face.

I have the Flex 8 headshield, and it works pretty well.

Second, I LOVE AMBER/YELLOW lenses. They make everything look crystal clear and they take the edge off the sun when it's in my face and brightens up the darkest forest. They're great all the time. If you haven't tried Amber/Yellow lenses out yet, you've just got to!

I would, but I have absolutely no experience with headshield type masks. I've tried one on once and I didn't like it. If someone wants to write up something about them, PM the text to me and I'll update the post. I will debate points that I do not agree with and will (with the submitter's permission) edit some parts that sound unrealistic or "fanboi"-ish. Just look at PBReview to see what I mean by "fanboi"-ish reviews.
