How strong would the mesh face mask be on this mask, do they break, can BB's split the mesh?

Hard to say. A lot of cheap eye protection products have disclaimers saying "not designed to be shot at". But they work fine.

Regardless of what a website or product says, the best thing to do is test it - the most powerful air soft weapon you can get hold of, full auto at point blank.

If it survives the worst case scenario, you are all good.

How strong do you reckon the above mask is?

I don't think it comes with a disclaimer but I don't want to use it and find out that I end up getting shot in the eye!

I'm not sure about the mask, but Action Hobbies have good customer services. Email them (using the contact section) and ask them if it can withstand a point blank shot with a .20 at 500fps, I got a response to my email yesterday overnight.

I have just emailed them to ask hoe strong they are, also, what counts as full face protection, because I am only 15 I have to wear the full face protection but could I get away with safety glass, like the big ski goggles and a mesh face mask, or does it have to be the full face mask, like the one above?

full face for you would be like that in a single piece.
Mesh will occasionally allow small fragments of poor quality BB's through, which is Why I wear glasses
but you will never get a BB to pass through by pushing the mesh out of the way, the BB will splinter well before then.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

To test all my eye protection, I open up the PCS bolt on my M40 all the way, and shoot it point blank with a .4
My Bolle glasses didn't have a mark on them, I was damn impressed. A mesh goggle that I had got a little dent in it, and my ACM pro goggles got a small mark. The Bolle are the best I have by far. Send me your eye protection so I can shoot it! ;)
Ask me about general tech problems, I'm happy to help most of the time ;) I'm decent with AEGs, but my speciality is snipers, that being AEG, spring and gas. I'm quite good with GBBR systems too, WA especially.

Ask me about your Tanaka/KJW bolt action problems!

I would if I had any, I have just ordered my first gun and it comes with safety glasses so It Is alright for garden plinking but I was just wondering what good mesh face masks there are, or failing that, a good face mask with a plastic screen that will not fog up, it was so annoying trying to unfog it every 10 mintutes

My old site once supposedly tested a pair of glasses and a mesh mask against a real shotgun.

The bolle glasses survived with "wearability", and would have preserved your eyes (the rest of your head would be gone, but as long as you can see, right?)

Mesh died. Really died.

Obviously the velocity from a shotgun at close range is going to be far more than anything to ever come out of an airsoft gun, but if glasses can protect you that well, you can't go wrong.

Personally, I'd go decent bolle glasses and a mesh face protector.

Would that be classed as full face protection?

Should be.

For the grange, you don't need a single full-face item. You just need to cover your face. I've seen U18's running round with glasses and face protectors before.

You'd be best to phone them up and ask; Marie is usually on the phone, she's real friendly will answer any question for you, no matter how daft.

Thanks, if there us anything that I am going to shell money out on it is going to be eye protection, better safe than sorry, I am probably gonna go with the glasses and face protector thing

These are the ones I have, but they were 8 when I bought them (only about 2 weeks ago! :blink:)
But they stand up to about 800FPS on a .4, that's waaay above skirmish limits.
They're cheap and will protect you plenty.

Not for me, they have air vents in the padding under and optop of the eyes, but still enough material to stop a bb from bouncing up under the lens. They're very good, and I recommend them :D
