Looking for a review of the JK Army M04 Gas Mask

http://www.jkarmy.com/eng/magento/m0...-w-fan-bk.html

also

http://www.airsoftpark.com/product_i...ducts_id=10059

Im wondering if anyone out there has bought themselves or knows a player who has used this mask. It would be great for an SAS or other themed loadout, but Im looking for input from you guys first. Im curious as to how well it performs and if the anti-fogging system works well.

Also if you dont know this one, but know alternatives that are similar fell free to post a link too. THANKS!

Can't wait to hear how this is. I want to pick one up for my zombie hunter loadout.

This has peeked my interest. I currently use a moddified M40 gasmask with Ballistic lences. Works great and the lences are rated or a shotgun blast at close range. My eyes will be safe if that ever happens. looking forward to yor review on it.

scratch that, I just watched 3 videos on these masks where they shoot point blank at the eyes, they bounce off... the description says "explosion-proof lens" , looks ok. But most fields dont allow anything but ansi, and theres always that seeping thought in the back of my head that i could lose my vision

I hear it's hard plastic and not particularly pleasant to wear.

I'm only posting to subscribe to this thread. I want one, as well.

On the site, it does list the body material as plastic, but whether that's hard or malleable remains to be seen. It also states that 'BBs will bounce off' the lenses and that they are 'explosion-proof'. Also awaiting info on that. If these prove to be skirmishable, I'll be ditching my Flakjaks for specific loadouts.

I picked up one for if only to use as a movie prop/costume piece. Also seems perfect for the local zombie game coming up in the fall.

Mine came in. It's not too shabby. The fan is pretty much one of those CPU fans and fairly quiet. The hard plastic edges don't rub up against my skin at all, so there's no discomfort.

Biggest complaint is that it's seem to be built for an Asian nose, so wearing it the mask rides up on my face, just under eye level. No really enough to obscure vision, but enough to be slightly disconcerting and to expose the very bottom of my chin. There's a plastic seal I might be able to slice to fit my nose better, but I'm not sure how comfortable that would be in the end.

Here's my vid:

Airsoft Fire test: M04 Gas Mask

Unfortunately the lenses were not resistant to sustained semiauto fire.

The lenses doesn't seem to be broken it might just not be held tight enough.
