JT Flex 8 Full Coverage Goggle uses the revolutionary exoskeleton that can be found in our Flex-8 system. This system offers integrated venting on the jaw which has also been strategically designed to encourage deflections and bounces. While the JT Spectra Flex-8 offers a "smaller target" to your opponent than previous Spectra systems, the Flex-8 goggle still maintains its ability to accept the Vortex II fan and other popular JT accessories. The full coverage model protects the top and the back of your head and may also be detached if necessary. All models come with a removable visor.

The fit was perfect. I am size 7-7.25 and this helmet covered my ears.
Great protection. I must have got hit few times on the head and eye area and you hear a ping. No lens crack or penetration near the vents.
I can hear calls and most conversation.
I had purchased two helmets and the other had no signs of bubbles after 6 hours of indoor airsoft. Quality control issues?
The interior foam pads could be thicker/more dense.
I am replacing the other helmet but for $60-65.00 I expected this helmet to last more than 6 hours.
However, because of the full head coverage design, the mask fits very securely on my head without having to cinch the back strap extremely tightly around your head and causing headaches because of compression on your temporal arteries. I attach a side mounted Sony Action Camera on this goggle and can sprint fully without worrying about up-and-down motion that may move my goggle out of place. Attaching cameras on goggles without full head coverage often makes the goggle fit feel unsteady as the camera's extra weight moves the goggles around during quick head motions.
The lens are indeed fog-free, and I had no issues on a hot day while everyone else fogged up with rental goggles.
In particular, I would like to highlight the outstanding manufacturer customer service and warranty. After a game, I noticed parts of the foam padding of my goggles coming loose. The manufacturer offered free shipping and handling as I sent it in for review and replacement, which arrived in a timely manner.
The mask RARELY fogs on me so thats a great plus and I love the full head coverage. In the 3 games that I played with this mask I've been shot in the top, rear and back of the head 7 times in total. It doesnt cover my ears totally but it covered it enough to not get hit by paintball.
Visor removing is TEDIOUS. Its the only actual downside for this mask. The only reason why its not getting a perfect 5 star rating. The sizing to my head isnt really its fault since its made in a preset size.
For airsofting I have used safety glasses (don't recommend ever doing), ESS Striker goggles, JT Delta 2, various other goggles, etc. And I will say none of them worked this good. The safety glasses were not safe, the ESS goggles still allowed a BB to enter either through the foam or the side. Theres a rubber flap there, as it was not designed for airsoft, despite a lot of us prefer to use them for this. JT Delta 2, provided lack of face protection on the sides, and bad field of view 180 vs 260 which these have.
Excellent field of view
Lower profile mask, allowing use of sights more often than other masks. Or at the very least allowing us to not have to raise our optics quite as high to use.
Bottom face/top helmet portion are not removable. So your limited to with or without visor for customization. Unlike my JT Delta 2, and other masks which your able to remove portions of the mask to be left with just the goggles if you wanted to.
Had this for awhile now and used it on a lot of outdoor events. Will say that the anti fogging capabilities of the thermal lens is superb. At most I have got a few small patches of fog here and there in extreme conditions. But those clear up in a few seconds if I control my breathing, since it only happens only when I am breathing heavily when I stop. Which might happen to me a couple times in the course of playing all day. Though the other option to clear up the fog is to just move around a little bit as that will provide more than adequate airflow to clear it up as well. I have gotten a fan for this mask free from a friend, which remains largely unused. It's only real use is to turn it on once in awhile while were setting up for the next match to remind my friends I don't fog, EVER.
Full face/head protection is also a great thing about this, it just gets a bit difficult to know if you get shot on the top of your head you can't feel it. It is also quite slim in comparison to other full face masks and somewhat flexible. The top sunshade is great in my opinion, I have played on some very bright sunny days and never once had the sun in my eyes, or felt the need for a tinted lens. The pictures may decieve you as it looks too small to be of use but it isn't, as your eyes are a bit farther back because of the goggles.
Update: March 2015
4 years have gone by and the mask still lives and has seen untold number of airsoft games and events. And has been there for most of my airsoft career which has eventually died down to nothing. It is by far one the best purchase concerning airsoft equipment I have made. I still stand by all the praise I gave it before, it deserved it and more.
But let me add in another thing about this concerning airsoft, it is annoying difficult to tell the difference between being shot in the head and a BB ricochet off a wall, they are both pings but only slight difference between the two. It's actually not that big of a deal really considering how much most fields discourage head shots anyway from my experience. I have never actually had that be an issue at a game so I wouldn't be too concerned about it. Worst I had was a ref spot check me by shooting me when I wasn't looking to make sure I was calling my hits, then he walked over and said I wasn't out as he was just checking as he saw a ricochet off the back of my head earlier and I didn't call it. Told him I couldn't feel a hit there and pulled down the hood of my sweater and revealed my helmet and that was it.

Möchte man mit Brille spielen, sollte man unbedingt ein Stirnband (gegen den Schweiß) verwenden und die Dichtung um die Augen nach jedem Spiel sofort abtrocknen. Durch die geschlossene Haube beschlägt eine Brille (nicht die Maske selbst!) recht schnell.
