If you play indoor or like in your face action, then approved paintball masks are a must. Gives you the best face protection so stray bbs don't hit your face.

If you engage longer distances or outdoor play, I prefer full seal eye wear like revision with a fan, a mesh face guard and my fast helmet.

If your looking for full face coverage and you need to have glasses under it. A paint ball mask with a fan is a must. Fog will get you killed.

Something like this

prety much any tactical goggles like ess or paintball like jt will fit with your glasses underneath, you will want some fogtech to coat your glasses inside and out and the inside of the goggles, fans help some like em i dont use em really the noise is annoying to me.
then you can use a mesh face protector so you can still use the sigths on your gun

NO not those TM goggles sure they seem nice but no field will let you
use those they are not paintball rated nor are they balistic rated.

Cheapest option is go to canadian tire or walmart and buy a $30 paintball mask
then go to armyissue and buy a fans kit

best option is go to a tactical store and buy ess turbo fan
http://www.esseyepro.com/TurboFan-Se..._category.html
and the face protector i linked in my first post
if you buy paintball mast you can always trim away the side you aim with or just remove the goggles and buy the face protector

As said before a paintball mask will be your best bet

Personally I love the V-Force Profilers but what I suggest is you go to your local pro shop and try on different masks to see what fit's you best

ok for paintball mask, is this one strong enought?
The guys at the counter told me that's what a lot of airsoft player use.
the price is not too bad and I am not using the full mask, just the goggles (with a nice fan on top)

the oriignal tiger link doesn't state the safety rating on the visor itself, only for the helmet. I would be looking for a visor that offered at least ansi 87.1 if you're talking about a clear visor. The face shield won't protect your face if a shot can penetrate it.
