    As long as it is tempered glass you are probably ok.

    Did you really leave it on your face for an hour? :p

    I agree, tempered glass is a must. You may also want to consider if it's low volume or not while still in the return period. A lower volume mask will require less effort to clear and is less likely to get dislodged from currents or others' kicks. Generally speaking the lenses will be close to your eyes and the nose pocket will protrude away from the lenses if it's lower volume.

    i heard you should test a mask online but it never said how so i figured walking and jumping things with it on for an hour was good enough(not huge jumps but jog jumps)

    Yes, and add a caption that says, "This is the best mask ever made and nobody could possibly say anything bad about it."
