Pros: Comfortable, Vision, Double Strap
Cons: None so far
These things are super comfortable with great padding. I have no issues hearing other people with the ear padding (which helps a lot). They have great vision, don't fog at all, the double strap on the back is great for keeping this thing secure on your head. The only thing I found annoying was the chin strap which was easily removable. Dis-assembly for cleaning and maintenance is super easy.

Cons: Nothing
I've used this mask for a long time and it's been amazing. It's the most comfortable mask I've ever put on my face, probably because of the double strap and tight fit. Doesn't feel loose on my face at all like some masks. The vision is great, better than most masks even though it's not a huge factor. Some people complain about being able to hear your teammates but I hear better than I do with most other masks. I've never had a complaint about being able to breathe in this mask like some people say and I've let a lot of my friends use this mask too + I live in Texas. After a day of play, the mask is extremely easy to clean.

Pros: Durable and Comfortable
Cons: Communication
These things are great comfort wise because of the dual straps and the way it hugs your face like a protective pillow. They never slide and the foam that comes with it feels nice, soft, and non scratchy.

My main complaint with these are how hard it can be to hear and the echo I hear when i'm yelling to my teammates. More then half my team have used these for most of the season, and when they agree that it can be hard to hear in them it means it's time for something new. Last thing, if you wear glasses I don't suggest these because the way the mask vents it usually fogs the your glasses.

I really like this mask. The earpads are really nice and cushy and the lens change system makes it really easy to clean. However, the thick foam on the earpads does make it difficult to hear out on the field and it seems to me that it muffles my voice a bit. Overall, its a really nice mask that fits good and is comfy to wear, but definately (for me at least) makes communication kinda difficult.

Pros: appearance, comfort, double strap
Cons: breathability, small
I have a larger head so it might be different for others.

Pros: I like how they look, very new looking. Have a nice amount of foam, I don't think its too much. First time using a double strap and it's quite nice, it makes a small difference that's noticable

Cons: Not breathable at all for me. Even when I would play mildly I would get a lot of condensation and it's slightly hard to breath. That had to deal with the size of the mask, when I had it in the correct position the mask felt really small for me.

Overall I like the mask not only for the looks but I think it could be a good mask, just not for people with large heads.

Everything is great about this mask besides the fogging. The comfort is great, and it seems to have a great wide angle like view. The double straps are great, and they seem to be real secure. Fogging happens during humid dry days, but they have been fine in the winter.

Pros: Best mask ever?
Cons: Lenses get scratched
This was my first high quality mask so I dont have much to compare to, however that being said I love my Sly`s and wouldnt trade them for any other mask.

I have had them for about 2 years and have replaced the lenses once because I am kinda picky about having no scratches at all, but both lenses never fogged or had any real problems.

They do get hot sometimes but I play sometimes in 100+ degrees so that would be expected.

I can easily communicate in them and have no trouble hearing teammates.

They are so comfy you can sometimes forget you have a mask on, and the dual straps will hold it firmly to your face no matter what happens.

They are easy to take apart and fully clean, I think there are some masks that are easier but it is certainly not a problem to break them down and clean.

I've had the profits for about 6 months, and I know use them as a loaner/backup mask.

Pros
Nice and Padded
Comfy (at first)
Foam is nice

Cons

I think they look kind of goofy, the nose sticks out way to far
paint starts wearing off faster then i would expect for a mask of this price
Fog incredibly easily
Impossible to hear in
Muffles your voice
Quick Lens Change Tabs seem flimsy and you will need a coin or other stiff object to remove the lens, and the tab slots will wear out very fast.


Overall Would i recommend this mask
No, unless you play by yourself and hearing and seeing is not important to you

Other masks i would recommend at this price point

Actually Annex masks are also made by Sly. The Profit (short for professional fit) is a great mask. Looks great and is available in a lot of colors. Feels very comfortable. The foam doesn't get nasty, and they have a complete replacement kit (I think it comes w/ new straps too). I think it is a good buy. I never liked the e-vents b/c they are too small, but these are less expensive and they perform the same (look better too).
