When you start looking to purchase equipment, the most recommended piece of equipment to purchase first is your mask. Having a good, clean, and comfortable mask is the most effective way to improve your experience playing paintball.
The two things you want to look for in a mask is comfort and ventilation. You want a mask that will be comfortable on your head for long periods of time and creates a good seal around your eyes. A good mask will ventilate as much of the air from the eyes as possible while keeping your breath out.
We recommend the MI7 for a really great starter mask that is comfortable, has great ventilation and comes with a thermal lens
