I was wonering what people thought would be the best mask for people who wear glasses? right now money is a issue, but later it may not be. So I would like views for cheaper ones and more costly ones.
Thanks

I like the V-Force masks.

Another option is inexpensive contacts.  I have some that I wear exclusively for paintball and working outside in the winter.  (Because I hate fogging or getting sweat streaks on my glasses.)

Is it fogging or fit you are concerned with? If fogging, you may look into a mask with a fan kit.

I wear the eVents style goggles. I had no problem with the dual pane thermal lens but for my eyeglasses I installed two small fans with a battery box on my gogglles. I got the kit from ebay. Works wonders now I enevr fog not even in humid days.

As do I.  Unfortunately it doesn't do anything for my glasses when they fog up.

Before I had contacts, I wore glasses when I played.  The best one for me were the JT Spectra Goggles.
These are big enough to fit glasses in.  The trick is to keep the glasses from fogging.  JT has these JT Vortex Fan.
Dye had a fan at one point for their goggles as well, but I am not sure if it is available anymore.   Sometimes these vortex fans can be fitted onto other brand goggles.  I wish I was using one at the Tippmann World Challenge.  My goggles kept fogging.
