This wiki has been updated 14 times since it was first published in January of 2017. Safety always comes first, especially when you are engaged in an activity that involves spheres of paint flying around at upwards of 300 feet per second. Any experienced paintball player will tell you that your mask is every bit as important as your marker, so we identified options that provide a good view, plenty of ventilation, and reliable protection. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best paintball mask on Amazon.
