@Patrick - @SaveByRichter35 was joking that he was not smart enough to handle your advanced subject matter. It was not a knock against you. I think everyone appreciates the spirit and math.

Thank you. I felt no offense at all. 0%. Don't worry, I am not going away.

Thanks for doing the calculation.  Now I am feeling skeptical about getting the all kevlar mask from Protechsport....which is apparently light.  I REALLY want to get something that will be the best to protect my head from another concussion....

Help...

Masks are complicated in this fashion. Generally speaking weight and protection can battle each other here. Sometimes when a lighter material is used, it can compromise protection. Unfortunately, without testing each and every model, I cannot say which masks have the proper combination of lightweight and ample safety.

I do believe though, a full kevlar mask is not an ideal construction. Maybe @Don Straus could come on with a more technical response?
