Mask F.A. “Predator” Description: Worn around the face and top of the head, these masks have several features such as including zoom and the ability to display various spectrums such as light and heat. In hot areas such as jungles it is speculated that they can filter out atmospheric heat so that the hunter can see it’s target more clearly.
