Nope, never even heard of them. But I've also never seen a custom mask that I thought looked like something I'd wear, they've all been horendously crappy looking attempts at like skulls and such.

indeed. I much prefer to wear a mask that allows a large field of view, and doesn't hinder my breathing.

Google search caught this:
Welcome To Psychoscenerio.com

From the FAQ
What are these masks made of?
All PsychoScenario mask covers are made of high-quality, hypo-allergenic latex rubber. This material allows our masks to be flexible enough to fit a wide variety of goggles and gives “bounce” to your headgear.

How do they attach?
Our masks attach to your goggles with industrial strength Velcro tabs. They are included with your mask and complete installation instructions are available in a downloadable PDF on the Instructions Page.



Latex masks sound like they'd remove some, if not a fair amount of breathe-ability of a paintball mask. For MilSim? Sure...I can see the aesthetic changes warranting the ~$60/mask total cost. For most of us airballers/rec'ballers?... well.. that's a case of paint.

It requires an existing mask + 60 for the latex skin (inclusive of shipping).


To some - it may be cool as hell. But - the general consensus here is likely to equate it to a paintball scope.

-used for look, no real function. adds weight or restricts capabilities."

Yeah, $60 for more weight, heat, and making it harder to breathe...hmmmm, I'll pass.

Didn't even think about heat. Wow...

And if you consider your mask is its own little bio sphere - with its own relative humidity, temperature, etc....This may also lead to condensation on the inside of your lens as heat, moisture, sweat, etc. collect and are unable to escape.

Something I learned this past weekend - Its definitely much more difficult to fog a dual pane lens... but its sure as hell not impossible....especially when the humidity and temperature difference is on the inside of the mask.

No, I used to fog up thermal lenses on the east coast. Near-zero temps + humidity = fog after a few hours of sweating.
