Mask Recommendations

I'm thinking about getting back into the sport this spring and I'm wondering about a new mask. What's out there that'll fit a big head and most importantly doesn't fog up (I sweat a ton). I used to run a fan system in my old profilers but I'd like to get away from using a fan. Any suggestions? Am I looking for a unicorn?

I wouldn't say your are looking for a unicorn, mask designs have come a long way

Check out the empire e-flex for sure. My father in law has almost the same exact scenario you described, used to run a fan because he sweats a lot, got a e-flex and has not had a problem since.

Push unite is another good one. My brother in law (son of father in law that sweats a lot) runs it, it is expensive but he absolutely loves it

The v-force grills is a popular choice, most people I know use that or EVS goggles

Yes, I'd try an Empire eflex/events or helix if you're looking for a good mask for a large head. They all use the same style lense. The helix runs about $30 and will be a budget mask with a hard plastic shell, and pretty dense foam around the eyes. The events and eflex are basically the same, except for the eflex using a jt style flexible lower, they are both some of the top of the line masks, with the same frame as the helix, but with soft ears, a bit better vents and foam around the eyes. They will both run between $100 and $120.

E-flex is $70 on ans

They have 4 colors at that price (including all black)

It then jumps to $90 for just about any color as long as you go with white lowers

E-vents are also $70 but the only one ans is carrying is all black

Another vote for EFlex, solid mask, good easy to change lenses, easy to clean and relatively cheap.

Thanks folks, Badlands is putting a sale on tonight (Canada) so I'm going to see what kind of price they put on their E-flex masks.

valken MI series. i have and love my MI-9's. rubber bottoms, quick change lens, good coverage.
also, JT Flex 8's, been running those since 08, and are also great, good coverage, not as flexy, but deff not a hard mask, great breathability, but as with all spectra masks, ****ty lens change.

both of those run about $50 great VALUE imo. my sister runs virtue vio ascends, but at now 100-120 dollars, not good VALUE. great mask, but there are other excelent options for that kind of dogh

personal recommendation, if you have a big head stay away from the empire stuff unles its the e-flex's, they run small in the face. but that is totally personal preference, i dont like any part of my jaw line hanging out when my mouth is closed. with both of my afore mentioned masks, the front most portion of my chin just peaks ur when im yelling. and i have a fairly normal sized man head i'd say.

fwiw
