Paintball Masks, Why Would you Want One?

Paintballing as a Sport has grown rapidly in such a short period on new sporting event that taken on not only the United States but all over the world. With regards to personal safety personal protection equipment has come a long way also. When look at what we used to protect ourselves from no eye protection, to first safety glasses, to goggles, to the colorful mask that are available today you would have to agree accomplishment that were made. I cannot imagine on what it would feel like if you were accidentally shot in the face or EYE without a mask today. The Markers in the 1970s were more powerful than what they are regulated or controlled to shot paintballs (round gel capsule filled with paint) today. If you had an object coming at you at 300 feet per second you would want more than your eyes protected making the deployment of the paintball mask so important.

When looking for your paintball mask what is it that you need or want?  Your mask is a very important part of your paintball equipment needed to play in a match or just with friends. A proper fit to your face is also important comfort to your face for hours of playing time without the mask cutting into your face or forehead is what you are looking for. Having a clear view if you cannot see to shot your opponent you will not last very long.  Before being shot yourself and out of the match or game. Seating along the sideline waiting for the next game there is not much fun in that. When looking there are two things for dealing with these issues a mask with a widest field of view that you can. This will let you have a greater side view of movement and less tunnel vision to keep from being blinded sided from your opponent. The other is anti-fogging lens are available if you mask fogs up and you have to lift it from your face to let it air out or defog you have exposed yourself to possible injury from being shot. Worst than that, if you are not shooting you are being shot at, and if you are hit you are out, no time out in this game. There is anti-fogging spray that you can use to keep your mask from fogging up. You need to us it before you start play it does not work as well after your lens start fogging up.

I would not recommend purchasing lens that are tinted for in your mask the reasons are it seems that the paintball compound in the paintball capsule have a adverse effect on tinted lens and it may not be sunny every time that you get a chance to play if it cloudy or very overcastted outside how are your tinted mask going to help you find your next target. Will you be someone else target instead?

I have give a great amount of important to the eye protection and seeing rationale for a paintball mask and it deserves to greatest amount of talk but what about the mouth and ears.

Have ever had your ear slicked in the coldest day of winter by one of your friends when you were younger? Well multiple that by ten, now you have so good idea of what paint slatted along your ear would feel like.  I do not think I would like what it would feel like if that same capsule of paint hit my top or lower lip of my mouth. Forget about what it might feel like, look at what it did to this guy with clothing on for some protection even though it was very little.

When looking for your perfect Paintball Mask for you use this post as a guide. If you are looking to purchase your masks online I would first find a store near you and try on the different styles and sizes and make sure that it meets all of your needs before you purchase it online. Making sure when you do buy it online that you can return what you purchased online if it does not fit.

Courchevel 1850 Resort

The Courchevel 1850 resort in France is one of the best ski resorts in the world if you happen to be a beginner.  Yes, we were all beginners once, and no one knows better than the Courchevel 1850 resort, that if you get the beginners right, the intermediates and advanced will follow.  With over 50% of all runs dedicated specifically to beginners, it is a haven for those learning to ski, or looking to refine their skills and expertise whilst on vacation.

Rumoured to be the most expensive resort on the French Alps, this isn’t strictly the truth.  You can find really good deals if you know where to look, and there are really good discounts for group bookings, although you get what you pay for, so don’t expect a cheap vacation.  Courchevel is part of the Three Valleys resorts, and itself is divided into four distinct areas from the bottom to the top: 1300, 1550, 1650, and 1850.  In general, the further up you go, the more expensive your trip is likely to be, so it is wise to consider going slightly further down, where you can still find some amazing skiing, both off piste and cross country, as well as some great downhill runs.  With an astonishing 65 ski lifts across the resort, the Courchevel is an enormous skiing resort, and attracts a wide variety of tourists from across Europe, and indeed the world.

The Courchevel 1300 is located right at the very bottom of the resort, and is truly beautiful in an unspoilt, picturesque sense.  It is a fantastic challenge for beginners, and is ideal for those looking for some relaxation out of their skiing vacation.  Alternatively, moving up, there is the 1550, which is seen as the playground of the locals.  Here you can benefit from some amazing self catering deals, whilst still managing to find great skiing, so this is perhaps a good consideration for those with families.  Again, moving up there is the 1650, home of the famous ski school, and a number of top quality restaurants.  With largely chalet accommodation, this is also a great resort to choose for your French skiing vacation.  Finally we have the 1850.  The 1850 is home to the rich and the famous, and you’re looking at an arm and a leg if you want to ski there.  Although the skiing isn’t that much better (unless you’re looking for off-piste), there are heftier queues, and the resort isn’t overly child friendly or family orientated. 

Of the four resorts on the Courchevel, you are guaranteed to have a great skiing vacation whichever you choose.  Each has the benefit of world class skiing, although the facilities may differ between each.  It is important to decide what it is you are looking for, and then to base your choice around this, so you can make the most of your skiing vacation.  Why not consider taking a few lessons in the world famous Courchevel ski school?  Or how about sampling some of the extensive night life these resorts have to offer?  Whether you are a dedicated skier, or have never been on a pair of skis in your life, you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for on the Courchevel, and you are guaranteed a vacation to remember.
