Although there are definitely similarities with paintball masks, the SUV is designed specifically for marine use and has several major advantages.

Paintball masks are way more ventilated than the SUV and they don't keep water and cold wind off your face. Great when you are running around overheating and gasping for breath, but not much help on a RIB.

The vents also mean that you will get water inside the goggle area. The SUV goggle area is vented from inside the mask which means the water stays out.

Paintball masks tend to use open cell foam around the goggles, which gets wet and soggy. The SUV uses soft closed cell foam which is comfortable and doesn't get waterlogged.

How easy would it be to get hold of one to present to the bosses here at Ribeye, in having these as branded up head gear for cruising.

If I were to get a friend of mine to airbrush them, do they flex or are they quite rigid, just fear them being flexed while not used somehow and the paint chipping after alot of use. If that makes any sense.

Regards

Tom

No problem. You can paint them or I can supply them factory painted to order. You can see an example of one of the "Legend Boats" masks below.

I sent reseller details to you at your old Ceasar Marine address, and at your Hot Fudge address. Did you get either of them?

Yes.

I currently have Hannibals in stock (and a couple of Infernoes too). The other designs are available to order.

How many would you like?

John

What are the carbon fibre ones called? And are they actually carbon fibre?

Those are the Hannibal design. They're not carbon fibre, but they do look good!
