Airsoft: Mask suggestions

I'm in the market for a good mask. I'm looking for something lightweight, full face, no-fog, and nice looking.

What do you guys use? Do you have any recommendations? What about a particular airsoft website that sells quality gear?

You could go different ways in choosing eye protection for airsoft. I personally like using shooting glasses, some people avoid this route due to the higher change of a face shoot. That problem is easily solved by a boxing mouth piece and a shemag (http://www.khs-products.com/images/shemag_detail.jpg) This is what I personally use.

You could also go with the full face mask, although this can cause problems. I find its harder to aim with a face mask and that it gets very wet due to sweat and its just gross. But to each its own.

Masks:
JT Fog Proof Paintball (http://www.airsoftextreme.com/store/...oducts_id=1736)
Wire Airsoft Mask

Shooting glasses:
Wiley X (http://www.opticsplanet.net/wileyx-eyegear.html) These are a little on the expensive side, but are issued to troops overseas and various law enforcment agencies.

I personally use run of the mill shooting glasses, as long as they are ANZI. 87.1 ( I think its .1) they are fine.

I run shooting glasses, Oakley's are good, I personally use S&W Code 4s. I never really like goggles or masks as I could fog every pair I ever owned in about 15 minutes.

make sure they are ansi rated, lest your local field get their panties in a bunch about it.

I personally use a pair of shooting glasses. And that's all i wear. I haven't had the honor of being shot in the face wearing just that yet, so i'm still fine with it.

I found that using goggles, they fog up very easily and i think it's more dangerous in airsoft to trip over some crap you can't see than the minimal risk with shooting glasses.

Masks are completely different. You can't see a THING. And you can't aim either. I'd stay away from them as much as possible.

JT USA makes an airsoft mask now. http://www.jtusa.com/airsoft/JT_AirSoft_Delta.html At $20 US it's dirt cheap too.

It's basically a paintball goggle with a tighter fitting lower section so you can bring your weapon closer to your cheek. That's something that you can't do with a full size paintball mask. I get around that problem by using a red dot scope rather than my iron sights. But I might sell my mask to get one of these.

that sure is interesting, but i must admit, it still feels totally different to wear shooting glasses. Plus if you are doing any sort of loadout, it just looks funny to be wearing a mask and running around. Airsoft is half about looks anyway.

Here's my loadout without my mask:



I'll try and take a pic w/ my mask tonight to see if it ruins the look. I guess a mask can ruin a loadout, but a bb can ruin your face. I've seen pics on airsoft forums that make me wince as much as tub girl did when I saw her for the third time. The good thing about the JT Airsoft mask is that it's tight to your face so you can cover it up with a shemagh if you wanted to. Maybe even a balaclava.

Ok. I took some pics with my mask and helmet on the left and my mask covered with my shemagh on the right. I don't think it's that bad.

what you really need is an AK to go with that shemagh...
