I have a Dye Precision Products. It's my bro's mask actually, but he left it home when he went to college, so i claimed it. All in all, i really havn't had to clean my mask yet since I've only been shot in the mask once, but it scared the everlivin' out of me anyways due to a splat of red paint right infront of my left eye. I thought i had been shot like in the beginings of the James Bond movies. But anyways, my mask fits nice and snug over my head and i can breath moderatly well, but i havn't really needed to run when playing, so i'm only out of breath becuase of the thrill, not exhuastion, and theres a big difference there.

I have a pair of eVentz and Proflex's, and almost every time I go for the eVentz. The only time I wear my Flex's is if it's really hot outside.

I have a V-Force Profiler and love it. I wear glasses and find that the mask will not fog up but my glasses will. I use a mixture of 6 parts water to 1 part dish soap on my GLASSES and it seems to work fine. You should not use anything on the inside of the mask as it will ruin any coating put on at the factory. If the lens gets hit I find clean water and air drying (it takes seconds) works best.

I have a small head (x-small to small motorcycle helmet)

I prefer the full coverage models. I guess coming from motocross racing it "feels right" having a "helmet" on. I've been hit on the head before I had the full coverage masks and (call me a wuss) it really P----D me off!

I started with the JT Elite headshield (full head coverage) and thought it was OK, better than the junk that came with my first gun.

I now use the JT Flex 8 full coverage with Thermal and really like it a lot more than the above. Much more comfy and better vision, fits my head and face much better.

I use a piece of custom cut foam to fine tune the fit on my head. The foam is from a motocross bike skid plate. Cuts easily with a razor blade and is cheap and easy to manipulate. I'm really picky about how things fit, so I spend a little time to dail in my head gear.

It can get very humid here in Louisiana (any time of year) so I use a trick from motocross racing---> use a, cut in half long ways, female panty liner with self adhesive strip and place it on the top of the google foam to absorb sweat. This will keep almost all sweat from dripping into your eyes. The goggles used in motocross have much better sweat absorbsion capabilities but this trick works with the cheaper goggles with less sweat wicking ability. This is usually a little more comfy than sweated through foam also.

My brother uses a fan to keep his glasses from fogging up in the goggles. It has a switch to run it only when needed. It does reduce hearing ability but only when it's running.

We also use a wax type lense treatment for fogging on top of thermal lenses, mine never fog even with the older non-thermal/single pane lenses

Play on----------

i have a jt proflex, Im about 6'4. in pounds id probably weigh 210 or somewhere near it. I used to have a lot of trouble with fogging masks, but this one is a champion!! i do a fair bit of running and jumping and diving, and it holds up well. also pretty easy to pull down and clean.

I use what is called an JT Fireman mask. NO! It is not a full wrap around helmet. It has great ventilation and great protection. It is a swampy green color. Great Anti-Fog lens. This mask is about 7 years old. Still working just fine. I will post pick later, you can't find these masks anymore.

i have seen maskes that are thermal baked ore something like that and i have seen double pane ones. my problem is that being new(uncontroable heart rate and breathing) and overly agressive( run around like rambo) my mask tends to fog up in a matter of a min or two playing woodsball here in ohio. can some of you pros tell me some pros and cons of each?  by the way great site i have learned a lot

Thanks
