Some of you have seen the pics out of the Phillipines regarding a new face mask being used there.

Here's a good read on it: http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=140473&hl=

The idea in general seems good for CQB/MOUT events.

Another option for those interested in what some of the North Texas players have done in the past:

I cant imagine how hard it is to breath with the first mask and minimal openings. Option 2 sounds much better.

I like second option, but both need better ventilation around the mouth and nose area.

Honestly, I dislike the idea of using masks altogether, but the inundation of new/inexperienced players has plagued many victims with needless face shots (can be a thread topic all its own).

I'm more interested how they got Multicam on the mask. My initial thoughts are spray on adhesive and a Multicam bandana as a donor for material. hmmm

They still work. Make sure you have a account though on Arnies.
