Essential Paintball Gear: Masks & Goggles

Paintball masks and goggles rank as the most vital equipment you’ll need on the field. They protect your head and face – the areas most vulnerable to paintball impact.


A quality mask should not only shield you from high-speed paintball strikes but also be fog-proof and provide a wide field of vision. It’s crucial to avoid your protective gear becoming a hindrance, causing you to miss hazards and potentially injure yourself.


For those new to paintball, some venues offer beginner packages at affordable prices, including a military-style gun, a reliable hopper, and a protective mask. Alternatively, you can purchase paintball goggles separately to ensure this critical component of your mask offers optimal performance.
