    any paintball fanatics? designing a mask for school

    Hey everyone.

    I'm in a Product Design class this summer and I'm designing a paintball mask. Just wanted to know if anyone here was really into paintball and what they thought could be improved on the masks that are worn.

    One common complaint is eating paint when you get hit in the mouth area. The vents that allow you to breath easily also allow the paint to splatter all over (or into) your mouth - it tastes lousy. Maybe some sort of angled vent idea might work.

    Other than that, keep it light and not bulky - let it protect the adam's apple. The masks out there are actually pretty good these days. Maybe a way to customize the colors? Make them more like hockey/goalie masks?
