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 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 wear a 7 1/2 and haven't really ever had problems with my masks.  Anything, higher end at least, will have extremely adjustable straps that should work well for you. Go to a local shop and ask to try on a couple masks and try out their adjustability and comfort fit specifically to your head.

I also have been thinking about looking into these masks but I have yet to find a local  (or even a not so local) store that sells them so I could try one on.

save phace are nice, however i cant wear them.  they are too small for my head and if i opened my mouth a piantball could fly in.  they leave alot of your neck exposed and should be avoided by players that are bigger in stature or just have big heads IMO.
Stay low, run fast, and hope that paintball doesn't hit your...

I have some profilers and love them. I love how easy it is to take out the lens.

I ended up opting for the Empire Avatars over the E-Vents personally due to the only difference being the ears. I've literally never had a fog issue with them and I play about 20-30 times a year.

I use Proto Switch E.L. goggle. They're amazing. I love the quick change lenses. It makes it easy to clean and also change your lenses in and out. Very useful. I just bout a second pair not too long ago and it was about $35-$40 shipped. Wonderful goggles and extremely comfortable.
