Been looking around for a new mask ,using a I4 right now .
Need something that I can wear glasses with and will only be playing woodland so camo or HDE finish would be a plus .
Any suggestions appreciated.

Goggles are very personal, and even for glasses wearers one may work for one persons combination of head and glasses but not another.

I mostly use Grills which have a slot in their foam for the arms of your glasses and plenty space around the lens
If you time it well and get lucky there can be ‘last season’ savings due to the variety of colour schemes and if retailers have stick to shift before the new seasons colours etc

I highly doubt any UK paintball site would allow you to use a mesh mask like the one you've posted.

If you want a full coverage paintball mask look at the JT Flex 8.

If you can get to a shop super5s, just paintball or bz paintball they all carry a massive selection of masks, that way you can try some on and see what fits you best.

There are no safety standards for airsoft goggles/masks, the only standard that is used is the impact level, and it doesn’t apply to mesh / mesh does not comply with the impact standard

There is only one brand that states their goggle is safe for airsoft - and that is a ski style goggle with impact protection and an all round seal

In airsoft sites and their insurance require people to use adequate eye protection and for juniors to have full face protection


For paintball there are the international standards with cover impact, all round eye seal and full face ear protection etc
(This is also part of the reason as to why the Angel Eyes have always had difficulty with the large lens structure and hasn’t made it to market)

Mesh eye protection is out of the question for paintball - it will break the ball and the paint will go straight through into your eyes
Mesh face guards don’t meet the safety standards of paintball face protection

Using airsoft types of protection is a step back in time to the 80s when no paintball products existed
