yes i know, this is a remote chance that may happen, therfore i used a paintball mask before but it didn't fit well with the helmet and after a game i sold

since there are some high quality BBs that don't break and shatter on impact but rather "deform". skyone, did you happen to have BBs deform and cling to your wire mesh goggles upon impact?
the green mask is not certified for paintball, well, indeed there is no marketing profs within it.. it's made/from China.. it's not made for paintball because its wire mesh doesn't protect from paint. I use it for airsoft (< 1 joule, italian law) and didn't happen that a bullet cling to the wire mesh goggles upon impact.

I suggest you to buy a paintball mask that comply to grade protection standards/bills, there are many brands on the market. I am looking for this one:

they are tested for impacts up to 6/7 joule and are perfect for airsoft too.
This a good site with many reviews and user test
