ziptie to the bottom of your goggles, making sure most of the lower vent holes of your goggles are OUTSIDE the mask,

the mask is low profile, and flexible, no problem with cheek-weld, I have 2, one fixed to a pair of ESS goggles,

and another fixed to a pair of SCOTT PB goggles for use at PB fields.. have been using them since 2005 ..

On Saturday, I took a double tap direct to the face from 2 feet from a 420 FPS gun shooting .28.. my face would have been a mess without the mask. With it.. nothing.. carry on.

Ill see if I can post pics..

not keen on the mesh.. they start to rust in time.. and that is just nasty
Unfortunately, running something like that at, say, Finch's during the summer is a recipe for fog. Mostly solid (even with venting) plates of plastic or whatever just end up routing moisture directly up into your goggle area.

Mesh can be cleaned, painted to protect from rust, is maleable for shape and is very inexpensive. In addition to those nice properties, it's the best for breathing airflow (for staying cool), best for PTT acoustics and the best for shouting. The one acoustic drawback I'm aware of is whistling. I'm unable to whistle at people through mesh.
