Paintball goggles are designed to do an extremely important job- protect the wearer from incoming paintballs and ensure each and every player leaves with the same number of eyes they came to the paintball field with, each and every time. While all ASTM safety certified paintball goggles are manufactured and tested to safely perform this task, they are not all created equal.
While some paintball goggles are basic, a simple plastic facemask and goggle with a single head strap, others are truly luxurious, high-performance paintball mask systems designed to not only keep the wearer safe while they play, but help them win by staying comfortable and fog-free all day long! Higher-end goggles like the Valken Profit, the Push Unite or the Dye I5 paintball goggle are equipped with features like much more comfortable face foam, quick-change thermal lenses to prevent fogging and allow for rapid lens cleaning or replacement, soft, flexible facemasks, soft earpieces for increased comfort and availability in a wider array of colors and camouflage patterns.
These added features combine to make a paintball goggle comfortable to wear all day, eliminate fogged goggle lenses and just plain look good! However, all these extra materials used to make high-end masks function so well, and make them more attractive and comfortable, equate to a higher cost.
