The blacks are definitely black, there is some gray though, but very little. You can hear perfectly with this on. It only limits hearing when turning your head. So if you sit still for say, half a second, you can hear somebody move easily. It protects your face quite well, and is tight. It is about 3mm thick and is quite durable. It is also reversible to black if you cut out the ZAN tags. It doesn't limit vision whatsoever and provides excellent camouflage.
