Hence why I wear full face protection even though it compromises my aim with iron sights

For those who just wear goggles at least wear a mouthguard.

... Here's the best full-face mask option... It doesn't compromise any use of sights what so ever.

And they're usually available for under 15 bucks..

The Sansei mask is alright, but you'd have to replace the goggles with regular ones as most paintball fields will not allow that.

Since I play indoor CQB alot I still prefer having full head protection I do not want to have to worry about big red dots the next day on my neck or other places.

I've had that one before and it won't stand up to a 400 fps full auto burst at point blank it gets dents and the dents become holes.

I bought 1 before and before even trying it I wanted to test it, Ancorp can vouch as he was there when I tested it, the best one IMO is the one with the wire mesh as opposed to the sheet with holes in it.

*EDIT* that sansei mask does fit VERY WELL though and does not interfere with the iron sights on my AK

Bottom line we are all adults, if someone chooses not to wear face protection, thats their decision and sometimes there are consequences. All the more reason for the 18+ rule. To add to that, anyone who's ever lost a tooth in airsoft hasn't been an ass about it (in my experience) and has basically said 'yup, my fault'.

My teammate got two tooth accidents under his belt. One indoor and one outdoor if I'm not mistaken.

Very few of the players here in Calgary wear full face shields. Heck, most choose to wear shooting glasses as opposed to goggles when we have the choice. A balaclava or shemagh offers pretty good protection too (at least absorb a majority of the impact) if you don't want to go full face mask.

Depends on your style of play to be honest. If you're using a bolt action and a scope optic, low profile shooting glasses are the way to go. Typically with that role, you will pick when/where you engage your enemy.

But obviously for assault you would want to go with heavy face protection (if you want to get nice and close)

I've seen guys do both, and never get messed up. Luck of the draw!

Yeah, it's kind of funny because at one of the fields here goggles are mandatory and everyone always makes a big stink about it when there's a game there.

To be honest, I've been hit in the face in both indoor and outdoor and it hurt and left a red mark but nothing permanent. I don't think I'll ever be sporting a full face shield unless required to. I actually bought a JT goggle + face shield combo and returned it a week later because it was bulky, not comfortable at all and impossible to sight my M4 with.

I think I'll start looking for a good shemagh or balaclava to cover my face but a face shield is too far for me. Just need something to take the sting out.

Pull the face mask part off and zip tie it to the bottom of a pair of thermal JTs or a pair of Thermal ESS Strikers... teeth protected and zero issue with cheekweld...

Others have just pulled the mesh out and worn this over ballistic glasses.. also an effective no fog option to reduce the chance of sporting a "defenseman grin"

I have a nice set of big old buckteeth; I always just wore shooting glasses playing airsoft....needless to say I bought an Empire E-vent mask not too long ago. It's a paintball setup but it's very nice, it's not very good if you use sight's but that doesnt bother me though...I dont use the sights anyways, I just line my shots with the barrel.

The thing I really like about this mask is that it uses a lens much like a half face hockey visor. I can also wear my glasses underneath it. I have asthma so I breath fairly heavy and I havent had a single issue with it fogging up.
