Are you talking about the one that is only lower face or the one that is lower face + ear protection? I can't see how the plastic one would be lower profile than the mesh minus the ear protection. Everything bends to contour to your face while the plastic one does not have that property.

The one with ear protection on the other hand is very bulky and you would be correct

I suspect the plastic is more malleable (or plastic as they say) that steel mesh.

As for rust; sweat less?

Is it true that sometimes BBs go through the mesh mask? .20 or .25 BBs?
If so would it be a good idea to wear a Neoprene mask + mesh?

I am very PROTECTIVE of my teeth!

Yeah, I tried shooting my mesh mask and it breaks the BBs into small pieces.

The mesh mask is there to protect your teeth while not fogging goggles. There are some side benefits to protect you face but your teeth are the weakest link.

Any BB that shattered on the mesh will have dissipated it's energy; it won't knock a tooth out.

it's a soft flexible plastic.. so you can get excellent cheek-weld

I found the mesh, OK but also not as comfortable

Does it maintain its shape after you flex it to your liking?

Honestly i bought a pair of revision goggles. And a lower mesh before i even played once. First i pried the material around the outside of the mesh off. (Took a looonnggggggg time, alot of patience. And hurt fingers) then line ur mesh up to ur goggles. Mark. And cut the mesh down so its flush with ur goggles. Then re glue the material back onto the mesh. My first game was at UA and GOD was it ever uncomfortable. Make sure u put ur goggles on first. Get a good seal then put ur mesh on. Make sure its not super tight. And bring the strap over the strap of ur goggles and up further on the back or ur head.

It was hurting the bridge of my nose as well. Bent it a little to relieve some pressure. But still annoying. By my third time playing airsoft. Im talking months later. Its now magically fine. It doesn't touch my nose. And i dont even realize im wearing my face gear anymore. Now i cant use my iron sights in game. But thats what red dots are for. I know that once i get a red dot. Ill be able to actually aim

Hope this helps

In the semi-arid conditions I play in the mesh has worked out best for reducing fogged out glasses. I molded my mask over my glasses in the basic shape of the plastic masks. That is, with the cheeks closer together and the nose/mouth piece further out. I am able to make a solid cheek weld and use my iron site. I am using the low profile one with no ear pieces or that funny camo jaw.

In CQB a mask is a must. A chipped tooth happens all too often. Find a way to make it fit. don't be shy, give it a good bend to mold to your face, maybe add some padding...get creative, no mask is not an option.

I'm looking for a mesh mask that you can get a cheek weld on an M4 with. Does anyone have any recommendations or experience with this model?

This one is alittle harder to get good cheek weld as the mask also covers the ears. Get the one that doesn't cover the ears.

What would your recommend to protect the ears, then? I've heard some horror stories about burst ear drums from airsoft accidents.
