This mask is surely a sight to behold! But it's not exempt from problems.

Comfort
I am aware that this first version is suggested for Asians, teenagers, and females. But I think that it could be comfortable only for the former.
Not only I tested it myself of course, but also my 16 years old brother, and a couple 14 years old players at one of the fields.
All of us find the top to push way too hard on our European noses, making the mask very uncomfortable to keep for more than a couple minutes. Additionally, when speaking normally, the seal at the bottom side poses resistance, causing the mask to climb up and not stay in position. The only way to communicate with this mask on is by keeping the jaw as clenched as possible while speaking.
Aside from this, the idea of putting a seal inside the mask is honestly a genius idea, because it really helps with fogging and makes breathing much easier by giving some spacing inside.

Build Quality
This mask is surely done with good design and materials in mind. However, while it's sold as a mask capable of resisting up to 800 fps, the outer rim, which seems to be cosmetic to me anyway, couldn't resist a single BB fired at 320 fps from about 5 meters away. Other hits at the center didn't damage it but scratched the mask permanently. I never had plastic masks for airsoft, I thought the elasticity of the plastic would mitigate this kind of cosmetic damage.

Flaws and Suggestions for them
The size is surely small and even European teens find uncomfortable how it hits hard on the nose. I believe the L version will fix that, maybe not call it L and F like now but something more descriptive that will not cast doubts in customers. Many would not buy the L thinking they have regular-sized faces.

There's no reason for the seal to continue even at the bottom. The heat and fog go up, not down. I suggest removing the bottom piece of the seal so that it doesn't leverage against the chin and prevent talking properly without the mask climbing up the face.

The air trapped in the mask can get somewhat hot and stagnant, especially in the incredibly hot weather of this Italian summer. By removing the bottom piece of the seal I believe this should be mostly solved. Adding more holes for breathability could help too if the previously mentioned modification would prove insufficient.

For improving the comfort of this mask:
1. Cut the upper rubber to make it fit nose well;
2. Cut the lower one so player can speak smoothly. In this way the air will go downside and not cause foggy problem for glasses;
