face gear protection

I have a paintball mask at the moment to play.

I just got some Bolley T800 goggles.

Now I'm looking for something to protect the rest of my face and ears.

What do you guys suggest?

A paintball mask.

Seriously, people wear tactical goggles because they don't want to be encumbered with full face protection.

If you're worried about your teeth try a combatives mouthguard, or wrap a shemagh around your neck/mouth.

Thick balaclavas also do the job.

PB masks are are tried and true, balaclavas can get hot and shemaghs are fine and dandy, but cloth can shift and drop down at random occasions.
The small investment into a mouth guard could save you potential thousands of dollars of dental work down the road.

cut the mask

I cut my PB mask down to protect my teeth and cheeks somewhat. It still has all the anti-fog capabilities and it works like a charm.

It has a triangular section from the nose down. the air flow section was left but rest was cut away.

It saved my teeth many many times.


If you wish for a pic pm me.

You could always run around with your head up your ass.. just my 2c




Bolles will work great. But either way a mouthguard is really key for dental plan when playing. Other than that just take the pain and dont cry.
