My husband spoke to your wife about a week ago to express our
thanks, but I just wanted to take some time to send you a note of
appreciation for all you did.
We received the new goalie mask, and we must say..... we love it!!
Our son was ecstatic when he saw it. It is just as he pictured it.
The quality of the paint job is tremendous, and we all LOVE IT!!!
Please pass on our thanks to your painter. I don't know what else to
say, but I will send a photo when the season starts.
All our thanks!!
Just wanted to thank-you for the unbelievable job you did on my
It looks even better than I imagined. You run a first class
operation and I couldn't have asked for better service. If you are
ever in the area (Don Simmons), let me know, I will buy you a few
beers. Take care and I will spread the good word about your masks.

Just wanted to let you know that i love the helmet. I remember when
i first looked at your site i read the reviews and i didn't think
anything could have made me react like that...until i got the
helmet. One word that sums it up.....solid. Its just a solid piece
of equipment....and i only have the classique!. I used to get minor
headaches about an hour after getting hit really hard, but in three
skates with the pro-masque i have taken two really hard ones....one
to the forehead, the other on the chin with nothing but smiles
afterwards. Just an amazing experience Matt. Thanks again for
everything. I want to try and get you a couple of pics in the near
future. I'll let you know as soon as i am ready for the custom paint
that we talked about, even though i REALLY love the harvard maroon.
Thanks again Matty. Talk to you soon.
Mask is here. Looks great! Thanks a ton Matty, you’re a
class act. I will definitely let people know about Pro-Masque!
I just got in from hockey and the UPS guy was at my door. I
just want to say it was well worth the wait. The paint job
looks really cool. I cant wait to show the guys at the next
game. I also want to say thank you for making a great mask.
I really love my new mask. It's so much lighter that my old
one. You really know what your doing. I wish I was a pro
goalie because I would endorse your masks in a heart beat. I
have gotten a lot of questions about mine by some of the goalies I
play against and I just tell them to check out your web site.
I hope I cant at least send someone your way. Well thanks
again and I'll let you know when I'm ready for the Roli paint job.
I have to tell you, I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of
During last nights game it got pretty physical deep in my end and
wound up getting pushed into the crease. Needless to say I
wound up with a two handed baseball swing to the side of the head,
caught the mask flush. If this happened in any of my previous
masks I would have at least had my hearing ringing for quite some
time, worst case another concussion. Well let me tell you, I
barely even felt it and heard a ping. Nothing more, the guy
seems quite surprised that I did not even flinch after his swing.
So after the game ends, I take the mask off for inspection.
You guessed it not even a scratch on the side of the mask.
Like I said earlier I am impressed with the quality that the mask is
built with, and obviously the safety that comes along with that.

years ago I bought one of your helmets for my daughter Kristin after
she had to sit out a couple of games with a concussion while playing
her freshman year at Salve Regina University. During her four
years as the starting goalie for Salve she played 67 games making
3202 saves, including 93 saves in one game and 1001 saves in her
final season. She also earned Goalie of the week honors twice
in her senior year, was named the team MVP and earned a mention in
USA Hockey for her 1001 saves in one season.
Even with all these shots she never received another concussion
which I know was because of the helmet. She also received many
complements on the art work.
In August Kristin accepted the position as Assistant Coach for Salve
Regina University Women’s hockey team.
Thank you again for making a wonderful product which I know
saved my daughters brain.
After wearing my new mask around the house and the office for a few
weeks, I finally got a chance to wear it on the ice last night. In a
For the first time in almost 20 years of goaltending I have
something on my head that fits. The visibility is great. The airflow
is as good as can be expected, and the mask just looks wonderful.
While I have not yet taken a shot to the head, it is clear the
quality construction of this mask will protect my head and face
better than anything else I've used.
Thanks for the great mask!

is a picture of my son Derek Spencer, he plays for Rochester Youth
Hockey. He has been wearing the Pro-masque you made for him
for over a year now and he loves it.
Last year as a Pee Wee he played up to the Bantam level and he and
his team won the Seacoast Championship. This year he is
playing Bantam 1 and he also practices with the Midget Major 2 team.
I believe the Pro-Masque gives him the confidence, at just 13 years
old, to play with the High School kids.
Thanks so much for making such a great product.
Isaac and I were talking about you tonight and wanted to thank you
so much for the beautiful helmet you made. Yes, it did arrive safe
and sound in Las Vegas. Isaac’s team took the gold from LA after a
rough game and broken bones. Isaac says the mask makes him feel more
confident – that “my head is in good hands.” Thanks for the safety,
thought, intelligence and skill that went into its making. And
please thank the artist for us. We hope you are well and that we can
continue to do business with you. Take Care.

am including a couple of pictures for you. One of Brick with Team
USA roller (Gold medal in World Cup and Silver in Junior Olympics)
and two of his mask. If you look close, you will see a distinct bend
in the double wire center portion of the cage and the subsequent
"push" mark just below the eagle's beak. I don't need to explain to
you the type of impact it takes from a puck to do this kind of
damage. We are so fortunate that we found you and your company.
Without this mask my son would have been knocked senseless and
possibly knocked out, or in the hospital! If you look to the right
of this bend, he had another - about one month ago on the side, that
also bent the cage, but nothing compared to this one. The shot
direct to the center double bar was the first shot that he said he
ever "felt" with this mask, but he said it was really more force
that any type of pain.
God bless you and thanks from the bottom of our hearts,

"Its Ed again, i just wanted to let u know that i am very pleased
with my new Promasque. when i 1st got to your house that night my
heart was pounding anxiously waiting to see my mask. as soon as i
saw it i felt like I won a million bucks. the paint job came out
very nice and i like it a lot. its Monday the 31st and i just got
back from practice. everyone at the rink could not help but comment
or stare at it. all my teammates thought it was better than some of
the NHL goalies masks. its an honor to have the best head protection
you can buy. i did happen to take a couple of shots off the head
seeing how everyone wanted to hit me there. i barely felt a thing.
now i can play with the confidence of looking good and with the best
protection. Matt if only you could know how happy i am to have this
new mask. you must hear that from a lot from people. but anyway i
just wanted to let you know that i am very pleased with my new
helmet and it wont be my last. i will send you some pics when i get
a chance. if you could i would like you to show this email to your
painter and let him know that he did an excellent job with it. i
cant thank you enough. "
Glad to hear you like the mask! I thought it came out very well. I
told the painter I'd get back to him as to how you liked it, I'll
forward to email to him, that should do the trick.
I try very hard to get the masks the way the customers want them. I
realize fully that young kids like you, and there are many of them,
have to pay for all or most of the mask yourself. This is why I do
my best. Even though I make masks for NHL guys, it also means a
great deal, perhaps even more, to hear that kids like you are happy
with their masks......
I assume Dad and Mom liked it too? They're great people. They also
have to put a lot of trust in me, and I do appreciate it.
Thanks for all the compliments, we'll put your email in the
"Testimonials" section of the site so all can see it. It really
helps, because most people need to see what we're all about when
they order off the internet without meeting us.
My direct email is email@example.com

"I wanted to say thanks for 4 great years with my first goalie
helmet. After suffering one severe and one minor concussion, my dad
switched me from a player helmet to the promasque. It has really
helped my play and protected me in a number of bad situations. Your
company is one of the few that is smart enough to not use plastic
buckles. My team just recently placed third at last years nationals
and this years Connecticut Polar Bear U16 tier 1 girls tournament. I
also noticed how common the promasque is becoming at higher levels
of girls hockey. Hopefully, I will be getting my second helmet
(maybe with a paint job!) if I make a division 1 college hockey
program. Thanks again! Oh yeah, I haven't had another concussion
since receiving my new helmet in 8th grade."

"I just wanted to take the time and thank you for the outstanding
job you and your artist did on my new mask.
The comfort and fit is just plush compared to the 12 year old Badger
Elite that I was used to playing with.
I took a particularly nasty shot to the head about a week & a half
ago that deflected out of play. Outside of the sound of the puck
ricocheting off my head there was no discomfort at all.
As for the art work, it went beyond my expectation. Your insight and
your ability to understand what I wanted to portrait were apparent
from the start. The end result was exceptional. Comments of “it’s
too nice to wear during play” and “It should be hang on the wall
“are not uncommon to hear. It is truly a work of art. Once again,
heart felt thanks for a job well done."
"..Absolutely Awesome! My Gosh, I have never seen Patrick so eager
to put on a mask......he was just amazed at the construction and of
the design and paint job! Needless to say, we are both very very
pleased with the quality of your work. I don't know who your painter
is but, wow! what a job. Patrick really liked the throat area and
the "A" was a knockout! We sure were on the right page......snazzy,
yet classy, and a real standout. I think his coach will really be
surprised! Thank you Matt, and also thank you for such a speedy, I
mean breakneck speed, for completion! I never expected it to be even
completed for this season, much less having it for Christmas..."

"Well, after nearly 20 years playing hockey it was bound to happen a
game where I got hit not once, not twice, but three times in my
mask! I think all three got me either on the cage or the forehead
And, on one of those I was down in the butterfly and actually
deliberately steered my head to block the shot.
I play with a bunch of older guys so after each time the shooter
skated by to say he was sorry. And each time I told him, no worries,
I m fine because I was. Except for some rattling at the impact, I
was none the worse for wear.
I sure am glad I accidentally bumped into you at Pure Hockey in
Braintree two summers ago and bought that Promasque Graphite on your
recommendation. It seemed like a lot of money at the time, but in
retrospect it was money very, very well spent.
I'd trust you with my head any day."

"...just wanted to let you know how well Kyle's helmet protected him
this past Varsity season. I maintain Kyle's equipment such as
packing and drying after every game or practice. I frequently
inspected his helmet after skates and cleaned up many puck and tape
marks from the helmet surface. I asked Kyle if he ever felt the
impacts on his helmet and usually replied no. There is even a slight
bend in the center of the cage he didn't even feel. I would like to
extol the safety factor of your helmet for he did receive a blow to
the head were an opposing player swung his stick with the intent to
injure Kyle. Kyle did finish out the period but took himself out do
to a pounding headache. I do not feel he would have been that lucky
if he was wearing a mass produced plastic helmet. I inspected the
helmet closely after the game and didn't even find a screw loose..."
"...The mask was wonderful, all I needed to do was inflate the air
bag inside the mask and that was it. I have taken so many shots off
of my head that with my old mask would have made my ears ring for
days but I didn't feel it at all with your mask. I couldn't have
asked for anything better! You were so helpful and personal in your
service and it was the best service I have ever received with
anything. I know that you don't buy goalie masks very often but I
can assure you I will never buy anything now other than a
Pro-Masque! Words really can't express how happy felt when I
received it and how impressed I was with your personal service.
Many, many thanks."
"...The new shell has been bullet proof and Keith still has not had
the slightest incident of "bell ringing" while wearing your helmet.
It used to be quite common with the Simmons and that was over 2
years ago. Keith is now 16 and is often taking shots from the Whaler
Jr. B's as well as college and Jr A shooters when he goes to camp in
Canada. You can imagine the velocity of these shots as well as the
occasional slash to the head with literally not a single incident of
anything that bothered him. That is amazing..."

"I absolutely love the paint job, and I can't believe what a
comfortable fit the helmet is! All I had to do was put a little air
in the bag system, and everything else was already adjusted
perfectly! I don't know how you did it, but you did! My old helmet
had a lot less Kevlar, but still outweighs this beauty. It's truly a
masterful work of engineering.
...there's no rule in our employees handbook about helmets, and I'm
wearing mine in the office right now I'm so proud!"
"Just a quick note. Even after 2 years, I still get great
compliments on the paint job of my mask. I still enjoy looking at it
myself. Thanks again and I'm sure I will be back for some new work
in the future."
wanted to let you know that everywhere we go your mask brings
comments & complements. We have been dropping the Pro-Masque name
daily, a week and a half past, while attending Silver Sticks about
thirty (30) goalies stopped by the locker room, to the distraction
of the coaches, to check out "the mask". As for the quality there is
no need to tell you it's perfect in every aspect. Our Matthew took a
shot straight into the cage (captured on film) and never flinched,
he saw it but did not feel it - a testament to the quality of the
padding system. Thank you."

Mere words cannot begin to explain how satisfied I am with the end

customer service was the best that I have ever seen, in any
business. Your artist took my design concept and hit the nail right
on the head. I was speechless when I received the pictures of my
mask from you. Thank you for providing me with an exceptional mask

that all of this would have been possible from Iraq?"

Adam, Coral Springs,
We want to thank you for making such a fine product! This past
January our son was on the receiving end of a brutal full speed
Butt-End check to the head. While Matthew did suffer a mild
concussion and facial bruising from this hit, it would have been
most assuredly much worse were the equipment of any lesser quality.
Matt's physicians examined him, his equipment & the video of the
incident and all were impressed by the lack of major injury. Quoting
one doctor "had his helmet not been of such quality he would have
probably suffered a skull/jaw fracture not just a mild concussion
and bruising." Just for the record the young man that checked our
son was ejected from the league, his USA Hockey membership revoked,
the team he played for was placed on one-years probation and they
forfeited the game - which - they were losing 3-0. Matthew has fully
recovered & we as a family have decided to "retire" his helmet to
his trophy shelf and commission a new Pro-Masque for the coming
season. Thank you for protecting our son with a fine product.

"…I’ve had my Pro-Masque for almost two years now and it’s hard to
think that I ever could have played with anything else. Just tonight
I got hit with a shot so hard that the referee blew the play just to
see if I was all right. I barely knew I was hit and thought maybe
the puck flew over the glass!…"

you for equipment in the future…"

the art work, I have spoken to parents of three of the other
Blackjack goalies and described the design…They seem very
interested…Thanks again for a GREAT JOB and EXCELLENT SERVICE!…If
you have any people looking for references…feel free to give them my

of art in a draw string bag. And I certainly don’t think it’s
appropriate to keep it in his Itech bag !…"

"…I bought a mask from you in the summer, and I just wanted to drop
you a line and say how wonderful it is. After playing my first
semester in college at Montclair State U with the helmet …I can
honestly say it is by far the best mask I have ever used…there have
been at least two occasions when had I not been wearing your mask I
would have most likely gotten a serious concussion…"

"…Most web sites are full of bull, but yours isn’t. When I went to
Simmons a while ago no mask fit perfect except yours. I love your
helmets, I’ve tried others but they don’t feel as good around the
head…Thanks a lot for your time and you truly do make the best masks
"…Thank you very much for your great and efficient service. We
really appreciate your cooperation and concern…"
"Writing a note... to tell you that the mask I bought from you has
made a huge difference on the way I play and the way I feel after a
game. The Itech mask I was using while saving me from outward
injury, did not protect me from minor head and ear aches. The puck
or stick hitting my mask sounded and felt like an explosion went off
in my head. This also made me gun-shy. Your mask absorbs the impact
immeasurably better. I even have a tendency to use my head to make a
save if that's my only option (I know that's dumb)."

was a big help. you definitely went out of your way. thanks again!"

"... one of the long lost users of Pro-masque! Well Matty, those
masks Craig & I bought years ago are still around & the old mask is
ready for another season of hockey, this makes season number 8, hard
to believe...but it is true! Between ice & roller hockey, those
masks have been in action 12 months of the year now!"

"Matt, I used the new mask this morning. The fit is perfect. It is
so much better than my Warwick. It did not move when I went down and
was very comfortable to were. The group I played with thought the
paint was awesome. Thanks for doing such a great job!! "

"...In terms of lightweight-ness I would have to say that the new
one I just got from you is the lightest weight, and has the most
peripheral vision of any mask I have seen on the market. In regards
to safety, I think that a Pro-Masque is the safest mask on the
market also, when I was five years old my parents got me one because
they wanted me to be safe, and because I always liked when people
shot pucks at my head. Now I wear one because it's the most
comfortable, and well built mask I have tried, I have put it to the

"I can't thank you enough for the service you did on my helmet. It
was going to be tough for me to find time to do a lot of the things
I still needed to do on the helmet because tryouts are coming up
fast, but you took care of all of them for me. My mom also said that
you gave us some extra parts, thanks for those too. I was so afraid
that I wasn't going to get a quality clear coat that would look
great and protect my helmet, but that seems to be done now."

Dear Mr. Garland:
Enclosed pleas find a picture of my sixteen-year-old daughter,
Theresa, taken during the Christmas Holiday Connecticut Polar Bear
thought you might enjoy seeing one of your helmets in a true action
shot, as she is about to take that puck right in her cage area. As
you can see by the concentration of her eyes, she knows she will get
hit there but is staying focused and not blinking to "help" take the
hit. She got caught out of position ad the only way she could make
the stop was to use her head literally. The save was made and the
The point is she has complete confidence in her Pro-Masque helmet,
which finding a helmet that she was comfortable in was no small task
either. Up until she turned fourteen she had the Dominic Hasek look
going a Bauer 4000 with a metal cage. After her coach hit her in and
bent the cage I convinced her to switch to a Goalie helmet. I
believe we tried on every manufacturer, (and even had one of the
staff at Simmons "making" one from assorted different helmets), when
another staff member suggested that she try on a Pro-Masque. She
did, loved it immediately and the rest is history. The first few
days that she had it all of her teammates took turns wearing it
during practice and were very surprised as to how comfortable it is
You might also like to know that her Pro-Masque helmet also passed
an "Olympic" test too. Last week Theresa's school team, (Nichols
School, Buffalo, NY), faced the Rochester Edge and Olympic/National
team member, Lindsey Wall. During the game, Wall cranked a shot at
Theresa from the high slot and it hit her right in her chin area.
The puck hit her with such force that it actually un-buckled the
helmet, but Theresa skated it off uninjured, (although she saw a few
stars), and finished the game.
Needless to say, we are all very pleased with her Pro-Masque and she
will continue to wear it throughout the remainder of her High School
and future collegiate career.

Thank you. My new Pro Masque is the best thing I have ever placed on
my head. It fits like a glove. The XDK is a wicked sweet mask. The
paint is insane. It is exactly what I wanted. Your customer service
is the best I have ever experienced. You and myers have won me over.
Not only did the mask turn out better them I ever thought, but you
gave me such a deal. I cant wait to get some pictures taken and sent
back to you. It is the best looking mask on the ice, that is saying
a lot since I play at North Americas largest Ice facility. I will
promote ProMasque everywhere I go. Again thank you for such a great
mask and even better experience getting it.

I am writing you to let you know of a side effect my new Pro Masque
has had on me. You did not warn me of any side effects that the mask
had. My GAA and save % is half of what it was last season. My game
has went to a new level.
They are making move up a league due to my performance. Since I have
had no training or anything new except for the XDK, It must be the
mask. I think you should have a disclaimer stating increased
performance is a side effect of the mask. Thanks again for the great

Once again, a big thanks! The mask turned out even better than
I expected. All I could say when I pulled it out of the box was a
big WOW. I've already shown it to a few friends, and they have been
I just got a call from a team wanting me to sub in a B league game

Matt, I just got my helmet and it is beautiful I can't what to use
it. Also the navy blue color is very nice. The helmet is perfect fit
and I must thank you for doing such a good job on it.

The mask is sweet!
The fit is great, all I had to do was inflate the air back, and I
I have never used a cateye cage before, and I love the increased
The mask is so much cooler than the Itech, and for someone who
sweats buckets, that's important. I played last night, and I
probably would have passed out if I had worn the Itech... seriously.
I had considered an Olie mask. I had a friend that ordered one, and
last night he took a shot. He was down for 6 minutes. No shots
to the mask yet, but I know I will be well protected.
My game last night was on video, the mask even looks better than I
expected. The way the colors change and the way the gold cateye
shines. I may not play that well, but it will at least make me look

Just wanted to let you know that I took a shot to the mask last
night. Actually, I wasn't too sure if it was a shot to the mask at
the time, I just knew there one heck of a rebound off something,
after I heard a very slight thud. I wasn't too sure until l looked
at the mask after the game. Rubbed it with a towel, and you would
never know it took a shot. If this had been my Itech, my head
would have been ringing a long time.
It was the league championship game, we won. Bill and Opus
gave me strength!

I did receive your call last Friday, but was unable to get to the
UPS drop off in time. HOWEVER, I mailed the mask to you on Saturday
via USPS--regular mail. You should have it today I would think.
And, I want to thank you for your help and support. I am sure you
know how helpful you were in dropping the Husky mask at Pure Hockey
in time for Collin's practice. I know how much you went out of your
way to deliver it. You gave new meaning to customer service! Thanks
very much. AND Collin is very pleased with the newly painted and
redone mask. It looks terrific.

Alexander will be contacting you. He is in Pittsburgh Pa at a

10 year old very happy and psyched about his season! You have an
incredible talent. As a parent I am so happy to see my child
