If you have been following my blog, you would have known that my friend Atid in an MMA gym in Thailand had awesome experiences with this high altitude mask and for that reason, I thought that I should write what I know about this training mask.
In this overview, you can find what this good training mask can provide for you, qualities and after these, I also included sizing information below.

- Top-notch materials
- 4 resistance levels
- Ease of usage
- Quite popular
- Great quality-price ratio
Firstly, it has 4 resistance levels and you can switch resistance levels with a lever and 4 resistance levels are enough for beginners and advanced as well. The hardest setting is actually quite difficult and I know that only professional people, who have really strong lungs, respiratory systems, can use it. So if you are not one of them, I really don’t think that you will ever need it and the first level provides decent resistance.
As you may know many MMA fighters, pro boxers, football players… wear training masks and get ready for matches which have higher altitudes and Phantom Training Mask is one of them.
The fabric is quite light and medical silicone can take tear and wear for a really long time. Since you will sweat and move a lot. In my opinion, this quality can come in handy. Since you don’t want your mask to become loose, do you?
This material also has a lightweight and while you are punching mitts, run outside or jump rope, it will not bother you at all. In addition to that, I have a really sensitive skin and sometimes have an allergy. However, this material is hypoallergenic and does not cause any redness.
One thing is to note that there are four different resistance levels. Considering my experiences, three is enough, however, five is ideal and this one has four.
My Advice: I got plenty of experience with training masks and I want to suggest something in here. Once you get used to breathing at a certain resistance level definitely do at least one more session with it. Since if you jump to a higher level, it will challenge your respiratory system more than you anticipated since the difference between levels is a bit more than usual. However, after you do a couple of extra sessions with Phantom, you can continue improving your respiratory system without any problem whatsoever.
If you take care of this mask, this mask can last over 3 years. So, I don’t know whether you know other training masks’ durability or not but this one’s durability is quite good and gets B+.
You can get your own Phantom Training Mask according to sizing information below.
Small < 155 LBS.
155 LBS. < Medium < 220 LBS.
220 LBS. < Large
You can use this mask for almost any training type. It does not matter that you do plyometrics, high-intensity interval training or boxing workouts. If the mask does not hinder your movements, you will not have any problem with it whatsoever.
Ease of Usage: It is quite straightforward and user-friendly. You can change the resistance levels with levers and you don’t need to take your mask off while doing it. As you may know, many other altitude masks on the market don’t offer it.
Quality-Price Ratio: Considering that it is made of medical grade silicone, Phantom Training Mask has one of the best quality-price ratios on the market.
My Opinion about the Price: Alright, in my opinion, training masks are not overpriced and when the companies use high-grade materials the price can skyrocket. According to my experiences, which I have a lot, it has an incredible price tag. Honestly, there are other elevation masks, which are made of plastic, cost more.
If you are looking for a top-notch training mask without breaking the bank, I highly suggest you have a look at Phantom Training Mask.
This one does the job just fine and I read lots of forum (bodybuilding, martial arts) posts and my friend Atid also used this one over a year and he managed to get better in every few months. So, even though I have not used this training mask, it is a safe choice.
