This mask is excellent. The Profit and and i4 are the only masks I will wear as a free agent. They are crazy comfortable (for me at least) and I can breathe fine in them. Some say they make you sound muffled, I have yet to notice. Great mask overall, can't beat it for the price.

only cons to this mask is the v1's ear padding were too much so some could not hear to well, and the color on the outside chips if paint is not cleaned off within an hour of getting shot.

I like this mask until it started falling apart and letting pain into the eye compartment.

Pros:
-Very comfortable (Ears may be odd for some).
-The lens and quick change systems are awesome.
-The dual straps are very sweet, in fact perfect.
-Lens removal is adequate for a mask of this level.
-Lens bounces, we have gotten several lens bounces in 2 days of play.
-Coverage is nice for medium to large size heads, THis was a problem for me when I used Events and i7s because my jaw/chin hung out ofthe bottoms of these masks.
-The lens is top notch.

Cons:
-Heavy (compared to Events/I4/Flex)
-Foam is poorly attached, We got 2 of these (1 red, 1 black) and both have started loosing the foam around the "nose section" after the 2nd time using them.
-Build quality seems second rate, My E-vents have 3.5-4 years of play and other than some stains and such, are as solid as the day I got them. Same for my Flex7s from 2003.
-The mask is hot and does not breath very well for all the venting it has.
-Hard to get all of the paint out of the slotted venting.
-Ears are hot.
-Ear padding kills hearing.
-Poor Lens to mask seal.

My team has basically tossed these and gone back to EVents and Flexes. They just do not hold up to heavy use very well.

Hi, I bought the Sly Profit A week ago so i only got a small review.

Looks - The looks on the Sly Profit are kinda wierd ish... but I find them sketchy.

Feeling - First empresion with this mask was " WOW, The ear peice are F***ing awesome!

Lens - Stock Lenses arereally nice, because the top part of the lens is like a dark shade, it helps when the sun is out, It doesn't blind you!!! The bottom part are clear for good vision. Also, The lenses are extremely easy to take off, all you do is turn two little tabs , Push out the straps and then push out the lenses.


I know i'm missing alot of things but like I said before I only had them for a week and had only two Practices.

If you got any questions feel free to Pm me Or Via email.

mars_saulnier@hotmail.com is my email address.

Thanks, Mars.

I'm back from my first trip to the field with my Profit and have a nice brain case welt on my forehead to show for it. Obviously its my fault for dismissing the need for additional skull protection ("I'll be fine...") but it would of been nice to have that extra lip on the top of the mask to protect us slow children.

That's it for cons at this time. Now on to the good stuff...

Most importantly, the mask is very comfortable. Nice and the right amount of padding in all the right places. The ear padding in particular was gentle on my ears and didn't interfere with my hearing. The Profit became more of an extension of my person as long games wore on instead of an obstruction or annoyance.

My first field strip took all of three minutes thanks to the Profit's two quick release locks. I accomplished it without reading any instructions and that is a sign of a great design. Subsequent strips have already become second nature.

The stock smoke lens was excellent. It was a bright and sunny Florida day and glare was never an issue. At this price point you shouldn't have to mention fog but it definitely didn't happen. My field of vision was superb and as I already mentioned my hearing was sufficient. I was also able to bark out lots of positions and my teammates had no problems hearing me.

I took a bell ringer but was still able to gather my wits and field strip this sexy piece of plastic all without reading the instructions. The Profit performed where it counts (comfort, vision, sound) and appears well designed and constructed so I have no reason to doubt its reliability at this time. I feel as though I received the quality I paid for. Finally, the least important aspect, I think it looks cool...

Deboxed:
Assembled mask in soft cloth carrying sack
Single page folded instructions (two total English/French)

Cons: finish comes off
ive had these since the second or third week they were out and finaly got around to writing a review. oh my god these goggles rock my world. the lense system is amazing, i am one of those guys who when on the field is always moving so my breathing is really fast and i have yet to have the goggles fog on me. also, as was stated before, takeing the lense out is easy and just as easy to put it back in. the padding is second to none. i was reffing a few weekends ago and on going into do a paint check, took a line up my neck and side of my head. If it hadnt been for the shot to the neck and the "thunk" of the paint, i couldnt tell i got shot. Also, i am blessed to have one of those huge skulls and in the past have had an issue of the goggle strap slipping. With the dual strap feature of the Profit, that is a thing of the past, sprinting, sliding, diving, any movement i do does not move this systems straps.

Cons:
i had a tournament about a week after i got them was with the lense actually. As the lense just gets held in by clips on the ears, there is no ridge around the eyes that covers the edges from the inside. As a result, when i took a shot to the seem at the bottom of the goggles, i actualy got paint in my eye, not a lot, but damn that stuff doesnt exactly feel good. i know i know, if i handt gotten shot it wouldnt be a problem.

Second is that the finish comes off way easy. i have the grey finish or w/e and its almost all off the goggles. it looks okay in some spots but in les the 4 months to have it down to factory plastic, thats a little wrong. I am looking at getting goggles "frames" from ans to accomodate this, but still frustrating

Edit: to those worried about fogging, mine are still going strong and havent had them fog on me. Also, with the foam coming off, just use rubber cement and your fine

I got these used, so my opinion on the value is a bit flawed.

Pros:
-Great F.O.V.
-While it doesn't seem it, the ability to hear and be heard on field is bar none.
-Wide variety of lenses.
-Good padding all around.
-Fits small to medium sized faces.
-Zero fogging, even in super heated, sweaty games
-Great foam
-Work well with glasses

Cons:
-The ear padding takes some getting used to...
-They are a pain to clean(so many crevices)
-Not as upgradable as i3's and Proflexes
-Slightly heavy
-Not for those with large head/faces, bad chin protection.
-Double strap not for everyone.
-Slightly expensive if buying from a store

Coming from a big fan of Profilers, I really like these. It is a pain to clean out paint, but q-tips work(as well as not getting face shots). I wear glasses and contacts and have no issues with either in this mask. I traded for this goggle system, so the value to me is different than someone that bought from a store. Personally, I would not pay $90+ for a pair of goggles, no matter how great they are... But, I will say that if you have the money to spend, give these a look, they will get the job done and then some.

I might be the unlucky one but I bought them 2 months ago tried them on and was amazed by the comfort. But I was also amazed by the fact they fogged in like 5 min of play. after some research I found out they had a bad batch of lenses. I contacted them via email and phone and have heard nothing in return. not at all happy with the customer service. Too bad because I believe they have potential!.

UPDATE! 11/4/11

Since having to buy new lenses i have fallen in love with them. I am not happy I had to buy them but whatever.

I got to try these when they first came out, and I was pretty impressed. They weren't overly expensive and had all the benefits of a high end mask, including the double straps which I loved. However, I didn't like the ears after a while; they felt bulky, and I sometimes felt like they pinched my head if I had the mask on for a while. Now, I've never used the "newer" profits that supposedly fixed all the ear problems, but that's my two cents on the older ones. For the price new, I wouldn't pick them up. However, used they can be pretty cheap and they are definitely a solid mask worth a try.
