"The mask, without any modifications, is decent, deflecting powerful 400 fps guns at even point blank range, and looking amazing while doing it. However, the padding is horrible and the material used to make the outside of the mask shatters easily in any drop. Using putty, modeling paint and satin coat, I replaced all damage to the mask, and over time, it became even more awesome than before, as the thin layers of painted putty gave it a nice battle scarred appearance. I would advise putting small pieces of bicycle padding on the sides of the eyes, forehead, and on the nose area of the mask. This makes it very comfortable to wear, and if you place the nose padding right, very breathable. Overall, I would say it is perfect for those who have the material to replace any missing pieces. Just one look at this mask can show anther airsofter how experienced you are."
