Sly Profit Paintball Goggles Review

The Sly Profit is one of the best masks for 2012. With excellent protection, thick foam padding, and two straps the Profit provides excellent fit and adjustablility. The profit is made to protect the head for those of us that don’t like some paint to the face. From the inside you can see that this mask is built like a tank, and has plenty of padding throughout the mask to cushion your head while your brain gets scrambled. Sly has also come out with a large assortment of colors and a few camo sets for players to match their gear with this mask.

Strapped In

_____These goggles were meant to lock in and stay on. With a pair of easily adjustable straps you can adjust the fit exactly how you want it and it will stay there. Both straps are individual adjustable so any head type could wear it . If the two in the back weren’t enough, the Sly Profit also has a chin strap to keep it from rising up. Around the lens is heavily padded with a thick foam, a different kind is used around the sides of the mask and is very comfortable.The profit straps are easily replaceable, and come in a variety of other colors. The colored part on the mask is made  of a hard plastic, while the black or grey portion is one piece of thick rubber that allows for a degree of flexibility. The venting isn’t superb, but functional and Sly has come up with a neat trick on their lenses to prevent unventilated breath from messing with your game. All this adjust ability, foam and padding add up to feeling like a giant pillow wrapped around your head. With an ok amount of forehead protection (I’d still go out with a headband), and some good neck protection for a mask, you’ll not worry about getting hit in this mask. One downside about the profit is that all that padding around the ears kills your hearing.
