Paintball masks protect your face from incoming paintballs, including your ears, eyes, mouth, and nose. Some masks cover your back and top of your head as well. It is well known that these paintballs can strike very hard and can leave welts or even break the skin. Paintballs can cause significant damage to the face and eyes when they impact at high speeds, which is why facial masks and goggles are worn. Paintball gear would not be complete without a paintball mask. You can easily wear a paintball mask during the paintball games, and it keeps you protected during the game.
