Look on the bright side; you can always use your high quality paintball mask/goggles while skiiing.

Solid choice. No matter how stylish the goggles, you missing an eye wouldn't complete the look at all.

The JT Proflex offers the most custom possibilities. You can change the ears, lower jaws, lenses and upper frames.

I still put most of my money into mask... I always buy the newest mask on the market, (And usually turn around and sell it in a couple weeks) just to make sure that I really have the BEST that I can get.

Right now I am on Dye I4's... never had better. Period.

yes, most google allow you to change the lenses, the color you want are called fire mirror. Although the pic doesn't clearly show it, they are the same.

Lol MAr. I hope the OP is smart enough to see the sarcasm in there.


Anyway, everyone is going to recommend their own favorite mask and myself recommend the proflex, but the important thing is that you try on a mask, and make sure that it has a Thermal lens, which is what most ski goggles have, this means that there is an outer lens that is thick and is impact resistant and and inner lens that is thin and the two are separated by a foam gasket around the lens, and inside is air that has no humidity, and this stops fogging. V-Force brand masks don't have this feature but still don't fog much, but it seems every time I play someone with a v-force mask says that it's fogging, while a thermal lens that is still intact WILL NOT fog.

Also make sure to try on masks for comfort, because they have different shapes for different faces and when you end up wearing them for 6 hours in a day it better be comfortable.
