When making this purchase be sure to actually try on the mask in order to see if the mask fits comfortably. Normally the best paintball mask for you is going to be the one that calls your name when you put it on. There is nothing worse than not trying on a mask, wearing it to the paintball field and after only a few minutes of wearing it, it begins to rub on your face wrong or you don’t feel like you can breathe well in it. What is recommended is to check out the paintball store in your area and see if they have a large selection of paintball masks. At first glance you will think all masks are the same and will ask for the cheapest paintball mask available but this isn’t really what you want to do. Before asking someone what the best paintball mask in the store is I would ask the employee at the paintball store what they think would be the best mask for you to check out based on your level experience or lack of experience in the sport. Make sure the employee explains the difference between the low end and high end paintball masks that they have in stock, just because it is a paintball store does not mean they will have a large selection or carry paintball masks that are high quality.
