i have a half face mask(neophrene(sp)) i bought when i first started out. At most skirmishs my glasses fog up so going to order some mesh goggles to use in general from now on. so will use the face mask for this skirmish as i hear ucap can be painful hehe.

normally though I wouldnt bother. but thats because mostly i play in open woodland

thats the mask I have
it looks fine but the air still slows upwards. with the mesh googles though it should be fine

looks like a bike cold killer (one we found before we went away) not sure if it be cheaper to look for one of those (tho full face rather than neck warmer) if you want something like that

Why not use the issue german torque (sp) you kwo the grey tube like headover scarf, oull it up to cover the face.

I have no issue with face veils for H&S purposes.

Although you may as well wear full face if you do that, it would be safer if you're worried about it.

safety first.

I've seen it spelt "toque" and "torque", so I dunno what's right. Anyway, I have one and they're very useful - Suesue do them, I think.
