I have had 3 Leon Paul masks over the years and they have varied a lot (currently using the black instructors mask, which is still going strong after about 6/7 years!). But I know some other models of Leon Paul masks have had quality/design issues.

I have used the A280CX (with the X-change system for the last 6 months or so and have been very pleased with it. The padding did seem lighter than my previous Leon Paul mask, but I have had no problems or concerns when using it in freeplay. I use the sabre cover that Iain mentioned which may help matters.
But overall comfortable good protection.
admin wrote:Exactly as Phil says, all Leon Paul sabre or three-weapon masks are okay for HEMA because they all use thick stainless steel mesh. I have noticed that the 'European' masks tend to have thinner wire used for the mesh, especially the Hungarian masks. The Leon Paul instructor's mask has especially strong mesh - mine had never taken a single dent in 7 years of sparring with all kind of weapon, wood, nylon or steel.

Furthermore, the velcro used in the suspension system is much too weak, and I have given at least one training partner a good case of mesh-nose with a nice frontal hit, as the velcro just let go.
But that is just my experience with the LP masks.
