Got this today!!! We are confirming some details with the suppliers and will test it during the game we are going to have here on 1st May!!! The test will focus on the breathability and the comfortness of it during the game!

Sure will, do you think if there's anything that you could bring up with this picture for the improvement of this mask?
I am not sure if this model of the balaclava is comfy. That I should test and wear it to see how it fits around the eyes.

And I am afraid that the mesh piece is too big.

We have that original mesh piece but would like to see whether this one could give more protection to the nose too:unsure:

So here's the update, the factory and the sampling room and I myself brought up 3 solutions, and they are working on that including the one I already post, and the one with the original smaller piece that evike sells on their website. Will post them when they are done.

In a lot of occasions the balaclava himself can protect the nose. But the teeth is a crucial part.

We will send those samples to you also for testing. Considering that we are having a four-day national holiday, the production might be delayed for several days. I will get back to you here when we are back from vacation.

So, guys I am back with three solutions including the one @Suriana brought up:

Plan A: This is the design that @Suriana brought up and we bought a Balaclava and made this, check the following picture

样品A(1).jpg

Plan B: This is the one that similar to the post #21, with a larger mesh part that cutting out from our SCREAM Airsoft Mask.

Plan C: This is the combination of our SCREAM Airsoft Mask and the idea mentioned

we tested three samples and ranked them from the perspect of breathability. The Plan C provides the highest breathability among all.

Like we spoke about there is a gear testing chapter for this project.

I still think that the model of balaclava should be different because of the eye corners of this model. Further I am thinking of a drinking tube for the 3rd model because you have to undo yourself from your gear till you can remove the mesh mask balaclava. It could be handy for short CQB games.

Let's wait and see how the gear tests will go.

Hi y'all, so our team took the first style of the gear test to the field last week.

It is a indoor game and the temperature outside is almost 35℃ that day but around 28℃ inside the field they played with several old-fashioned fans haha. They all got sweaty after the game and the tester who wears this said it is really nice for his cheek cuz he could feel the strong breathability of it which made him feel better compared to other masks he had experienced.

What made him feel pretty sad is we have to take the mask back from him to see the strengthness of the material XD...

So, I was snooping around these forums and found this post. Now I wonder:

Where do I get that cardboard cutout on the right?

Alright, people,

I have been less online over here because of a busy job and other things going on.

But I have tested the 2 items I received as the test and I am not very satisfied with it.
The Multicam design looks great with the set I have but I am disappointed about the functionality of it.

Like I said, in the beginning, the model of the balaclava is not fitting great because it's made out of 2 pieces. And the mesh mask is just too big. When I want to rest my cheek against the stock of my rifle to scope the enemy I see nothing because I can't look straight in it. And my scope has an amazing eye relief.

So I suggest making the balaclava out of 1 piece and make the mesh mask smaller. Just enough to protect your mouth. And the material is holding the heat on the inside so my glasses are getting foggy.

I posted a link below. Over here you can see that the mesh is just to big. Hit the 'photo' for the picture.

Sorry I forgot which version did you get for testing. From the link you provided, is it the one with sewed pocket inside to carry metal mesh piece?

I received the Multicam with the pocket on the inside and a mesh that protect the more and mouth section. And I received the black camp one with a small mesh piece inside a pocket. (Almost the idea that had)

The black balaclava has a high cut so that makes it a bit lose around your forehead. The mesh piece has a perfect size. It protects your mouth as it should be.

Could you change the design of the balaclava, please. Make it out of 1 piece. Use the model that some motorcycle drivers use. Just 1 opening around the eyes and make a ventilated mouth section with a mesh piece on the inside.
