^^^ If you are referring to my mask, those are actually strips of brown, green, and black cloth that I cut into strips. I then drilled a series of holes in the bottom lip of the mask, threaded the cloth strips through the holes and knotted them on the back to keep them from coming out. After a year of use, I have still not taken a neck shot that has produced any sort of welt or mark. The cloth strips won't totally stop the paintball, but seem to dramatically slow it down so that it doesn't leave a mark.
 
On a side note, the strips keep some of the heat in so I also use a set of Fanz mask fans with a battery pack to keep from fogging up. You can find the fan kits on ebay. Just search for "fanz". Go with the dual fan kit, better safe than foggy.

^^^ Yes. Just make sure you cut them into thin enough strips that they will fit through the holes you drill, but not so thin that they don't do any good in helping deflect/slow down shots. I think I cut them about 1/2 inch wide or so.
