Pros: dual straps, able to rest cheek on your tank, ect.

The Sly Profits (or Pro-fits) are easily the best mask that i've ever owned. For a mask that is in the same price range of this mask, such as my long-time favored e-vents, Sly blew Empire out of the water! Profits are very breathable, ridiculously comfortable, and you are able to rest your cheek on your tank when you shoulder the gun. The dual straps make sure that you can find the perfect fit and tightness. Quite a few people say that profits impair your hearing, well that is just not true, especially when the gen 3 profits with the ear hole cut into the soft ears. All Profits come with tinted or tinted fade lenses which is a huge plus. And speaking of lenses, the mask has a small tab on the straps that you can use to unlock your safety locks on the straps & lenses, so no, you do NOT need to carry a screwdriver around with you. I only have two cons with this mask, 1) The velvety foam can get a bit warm, 2) I work at a local paintball field, and when i wear this mask to ref, it can get a little loud on the inside, but me also being a musician, i am very adapted to loud sounds, so it doesn't bother me.

MAIN POINT: Profits are amazing masks and I think that in terms of luxury masks this takes the cake (the only thing that would make it better would be to have the breath-ability of flexes).

SIDE NOTE: If you have a smaller head or wear glasses, I4's are still the way to go.

Pros: Double Strap, Wide FOV
Cons: Ventilation
I purchased a pair of these goggles after ruining my pair of ACU pattern E-vents.

Ascetics - Very pleasing, I was asked by quite a few people how I liked them. Even by people with really good masks like Dye I4's. Color combinations are nice, if you are into that stuff. I prioritize function over form, though.

Fit - Standard fit for a new mask. Seems like everyone is going towards minimal jawline coverage to decrease profile. The double straps work well, unless I am wearing a hat backwards.

Ventilation - I purchased the original version of this mask when it first came out. The V1 ear foam was a detractor. It decrease my ability to hear, and make the mask hotter. It even fogged up on me once or twice. The newer replacement ear foam fixed the audible issues, and increased ventilation. I'd still place it as "not breathing as well as a ProFlex", but it seems decent for Florida summers.

Outstanding Characteristics - I would have to say the lens system is phenomenal on this mask. Great Field of view, extremely easy to remove and replace.

Overall Impression - The mask is ok. Not ground breaking, but definitely not crap-tastic. If there was one thing I would fix, to make this my ultimate go to mask, it would be to increase the ventilation. As it stands, right now it is a backup to my Proflex and modified Flex8.

I have played a few games with these so far and they are great. sometimes they smudge a bit when I can't get all the paint off the lens and also fog up a bit if my breath can't get out of the bottom on the mask (crouching a certain way or something like that). But overall great inexpensive mask.

Pros: Stylish, Good View, Comfortable and Snug
Cons: Hot, Muffled
The Sly's are a great mask and I enjoy playing with them. Though I've owned many masks and this isn't my favorite one.

First, they are very comfortable. I enjoy a mask that doesn't move around on my my face. They fit snug and are tight in all the right places, while not too tight in others. They look good on the field and provide a great view.

The cons, as stated before, are mainly that they muffle my voice a lot and I have to yell a little bit more then I would like. In the heat of Texas, they can get a little stuffy and not enough air circulation.

Overall I'd give them an 8/10. I enjoy playing with them and they have no problems that make them a deal breaker.

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.

Pros: Comfort, appearance, vision, durability
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.

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.
