I like the idea of the mesh half mask..

One of the issues with mesh is in bright sun.. it can be hard to see out of due to reflective scattering.. and they are useless in low light as your eye wants to focus on the mask ...

Talk about gouging for shipping. $43 for EMS and it takes 1 month?

EMS should be cheaper AND it should take like 3-5 days.

I'd be down for a group order for the half mesh masks, I wonder if it's possible to reshape the meshing for a better cheek weld or for other players who may have larger/smaller cheek bones/face etc.

On the other hand, I've been using this for Indoor CQB yeah I've been called Darth Vader or whatever but I can enjoy myself without worrying about coming home with welts on my neck/face.

Here's what I use: http://www.eyetactical.com/ Oh and it's Canadian, head office is in Ottawa I believe.

Remember, safety first.

It's probably coming from the heart of the motherland!! Plus it'll probably cost a little $$ to bribe the folks in the post office to not carelessly 'lose' packages.

tehnooblord we're all seriously tired of you bickering about not being able to afford anything.

STFU already, everybody has financial problems but we all make ends meets when it comes to this hobby. Airsoft isn't even considered EXPENSIVE compared to some of the other hobbies out there.

As for money issues, it's usually because you don't keep track of your expenses/income very well, maybe you should start writing down what you spend each day and what you make and then start figuring out what you can and can't spend your $$ on after you've set priorities.

Full mask make no sense to me, as silver pointed, you would have to put some goggle underneath to protect from bb shard when they impact on the mesh...

Apologies if you guys have been through this before....
But what about simply stitching the light wire mesh (ala home depot) in between layers of a cloth half mask or neoprene? I mean it would give the same protection and would cost basically nothing...

Although it would be pretty hot underneath it, you can go to thin cloth instead of neoprene.

being homemade, i wouldnt bet on it stopping BBs, and it would also probable be pretty uncomfortable, because... well...i just get this image of a piece of chicken wire strapped to my face

Id personally prefer the full mech, but thats maybe just me, cause i already wear glasses under it anyways, if its just the half mask, i dont see why you wouldnt just get goggles with the face mask built in

Wait, what? this

Could someone define what the hell "drilled goggles" are, I'm hoping it's not what I think it means...

Wow.. That should have been brought to PMs a long time ago. GTFO this thread with those comments.

This looks kind of cool, especially the half mask since it would offer protection, but without fogging up goggles like wearing a neoprene half mask does. But so expensive, I just don't see it as worth that much. I like the idea of home made half mask.

Curiosity, and I prefered not to post in the game thread.

I'll pass on commenting the wisdom in drilling hole in protective equipment.

As for your... issues, you ganked us with that. The original point stands, this isn't MSN, and advertising guns for sale (even passively like in your comment) goes against the TOS here.
