In terms of the rest of the mask, it looks like it should do what it's designed to do. It is sturdy, seems well-ventilated, and is visually appealing (if that really matters to anyone). The only other issues besides the detached internal foam piece is perhaps the shaded lens itself and the mask's weight. On a bright day I assume the lens would be great; however, placing it to my face on today's cloudy day, it does distort your view to the point where I could see it as a hinderance on the field under shady, rainy or cloudy conditions. Still, if it is sunny, I assume it would be a great lens and place you at a slight advantage. That being said, I do believe the lens should be simple to change over if desired. In terms of the weight, after comparing it to past goggles I have owed (which are all but destroyed now), it is a bit on the heavy side. By no means it is extremely heavy though, so please take that into consideration. However, due to the increase in weight, I think I will be tightening the strap more than usual and potentially readjusting the mask's positioning during high-paced or hard play. I will update this review later if I get to utilize this mask over the weekend.
In conclusion, it is a good mask, but perhaps not worth the price.
One day after receiving this mask and discovering the flaw in the interior foam, Amazon came through with flying colors and overnighted a new and non-flawed mask to my front door. My issue was resolved within 24 hrs. This is why I will always order from Amazon. Their costumer service and product resolution team is second to none. It looks as though I will have time to test this mask out for the weekend game after all. I hope this review helps.
After field testing this product (the new mask that amazon sent very quickly and with great customer service after experiencing foam flaws with the first one), I noticed a few issues, one being very severe. I will list the pros and cons below:
-In general, the mask fits and holds well during play.
-The interior tinted lens is good in fields with open and direct sunlight, but still functional in the shade.
-You can wear a backwards baseball cap as padded protection for the top of your head (pass scalp line of the mask) and back of your neck quite easily with the elastic tightening strap.
-Does not offer top of head protection (typical for paintball masks thus the cap comment above), lower neck protection (you should have something else to protect your jugulars since the front of the neck is widely exposed), and has very little coverage over the chin. It looks sleek, but they might have taken too much protection/coverage out to achieve that look.
-SEVERE ISSUE - This model of mask fogs badly. Perhaps my mask was just flawed and maybe the interior lens had an invisible broken seal on its connection to the outer lens, or maybe the factory installed it and accidentally trapped moisture in between the two lenses which condenses in a heated environment, but in either case, the mask fogged so badly that it resulted in a bad wrist injury (via inability to see environment) and I later had to utilize my old mask (which I brought just in case) for the rest of the day. The sad thing is my old mask of 15 years fogs up too, and was the sole purpose of replacing it, but ironically, the new mask fogged up much worse. As a result, this mask could very well prove to be quite dangerous since you can't always see your environment nor see how to get back to the safety zone for maintenance. Also, for the price, you might as well buy a cheap mask and a high quality interior weather/defogging insert lens since that is all this product is. Thus, it is not really worth the price overall. However, if you get one that works, it might be worth it, but mine was not. Amazon is straightening out this issue and I am sure they will do a great job. I trust amazon, just not this product since it appears I have received two flawed masks of the same type. Therefore, buyer beware. A mask that fogs up makes you a sitting duck/target and places you in a dangerous position. You can't risk getting your eyes knocked out by cleaning the lens mid-game, and when you can't see anything the game loses its sporting and fun quality. Personally, and as discussed with amazon representatives, I will most-likely keep the new mask, rip out the interior lens and add a different one I know will work (thus added cost and maintenance). However, I wish I'd just save myself the trouble and had done the same thing to my old mask prior to investing time and money in this new mask. Lesson learned. The main thing I wish to convey in this review is that this product (at least in my case) could be flawed and/or dangerous. It resulted in a wrist injury for myself that should have been easily avoided. My wrist should heal fine in a few more weeks and I blame no one besides myself since paintball is a risky game after all, but when a mask fogs up that badly, I don't want others to get hurt just because this fogging issue was not noted prior to purchase. Once again, buyer beware. I hope this helps.
After several hours running around the woods in 70 degree weather with a long sleeve shirt and a bandana on my head, the Profit lens didn't come close to fogging up during any matches. There are less expensive thermal masks available, but I didn't want to take a chance. I chose to get a Sly because of their reputation, and I liked the look and color options better than the Dye i4 lineup. I purchased a camo mask with a black bottom for better woodsball concealment.
The fit from the double strap design coupled with the extremely soft padding makes for a supremely well fitted and comfortable play experience. I thought that having a larger head would be an issue, but I actually had to tighten the bottom strap down quite a bit to make sure the bottom side of the eye padding stayed tight to my nose. This shows that Sly takes those of us with big noggins into account with their mask design. The soft ear foam also didn't deaden outside noise as much as I thought it would, and I could still hear my opponents moving around through the brush very well. Just make sure the ear holes are centered over your ears properly, and you won't have problems.
The wide lens provides a great field of vision that preserves as much peripheral vision as a mask can, and I didn't notice any tunnel vision effect as I was moving around the field. As with any goggle, though, you can't see below your nose well without tilting your head down more than usual. Removing the lens is also quite easy as long as you follow the instructions which makes cleaning very easy.
The Profit doesn't offer much forehead coverage due to the lack of a visor, but a headband or bandana solves that problem. Also, since this is a low profile mask, the vented sides don't offer any neck coverage, and it may be necessary to wear a neck guard to protect this sensitive skin.
Smaller vents on the rubber underside of the mask mean that paint is less likely to end up in your mouth or on your face, but it doesn't allow for very good air circulation. It also muffles your voice a bit which means you will have to shout louder so others can understand you.
The gradient lens that comes standard with the Profit is great for reducing glare for outdoor paintball, but the reflective surface is very prone to scratches. After a day in the woods, small branches and sticks left a few scuffs and scratches on my lens, but that is better than having scratches on my eyes or face. The coating on the outside is also difficult to clean without really buffing it well with a microfiber cloth if your opponents are using oily paint. It's not as obvious with clear lenses.
The chin strap that comes with the mask was really too short to be functional for me, and it didn't sit in a spot where I felt it provided any benefit. Luckily it was easily removable, and I didn't have to take any hardware to the mask to release the straps.
Overall, the Sly Profit is an excellent mask for those that don't mind a low profile goggle design. I don't know that it improved my game, but it was definitely a huge upgrade to not have to alter my breathing or deal with mid match fogging all of the time. No mask is completely fog proof, but keeping the lens clean, and checking the coating by breathing directly on the inside of the lens between matches to check the integrity of the coating will make sure you don't have issues. If you get a defective lens, don't use it until you get it replaced.
Sly also recommends replacing the lens once per year, but I'm sure you don't have to go that far as long as you don't use cleaners that contain acetone or alcohol which will damage the coating on either side of the lens. I personally used a few sprays of clean water, and a very soft cloth to clean mine, and it is still fine. Do replace it if there are any visible cracks around the seal that connects the two layers of plastic though. Once it cracks, the seal is broken, and then you may have fogging between the two layers.
I recommend this mask to anyone who likes woodsball or speedball. Great mask, will/would buy again!!!
