Ok so I've been playing paintball for about 2 months now. The question I have is how do I stop sweat from my head coming down into the foam of the mask and eventually leaking into my lenses and blurring everything up.

Thanks

Headband. Also, if you have the cash, buy a proto mask with a fan in it. I've never owned one, but that might work for keeping you cool.

fans are a nono for speedball....you cant hear your teammates......

headbands with a good thick sweat band are great

Headband, or wear a beanie for your whole head, but it if it's hot, just wear a headband.

I've just started playing with a headband the past month, and it's a great investment! Keeps the sweat out and makes the mask even more comfortable!
