I decided to get this because the wire face masks can be really uncomfortable, so a face mask that doesn't actually touch your face sounded intriguing. It is far more comfortable, but very bulky. Looking down is not an option, so if you wanna use this make sure you practice your blind mag swaps. Also, it is possible to get hit on the face if you are looking anywhere but straight. This connects to a fast-type helmet using velcro, which is surprisingly sturdy.
-face protection that's not on your face
-helmet, goggles and face mask are all now "one-piece" which makes gearing up a little faster.
-does not provide full seal protection, so be careful.
-severely limits head movement
-refs really don't like it, and may not allow it (the guys at insight were skeptical, but ultimately let me use it because I'm over 18 and signed the waiver...)
