I've been a proflex user for a long time. Even after I bought a set of Events, it took me a long time to start to use them. Although once I started using them, they're quickly becoming my favorite mask. One of the main things I love about them is how easy it is to clean and change the lens. The fit and feel is similar to a proflex. The main difference in how it feels to me is that the event doesn't feel as loose on the head. It's still quite comfortable as I have a decent sized melon and it doesn't feel like it's constricting.

I wish there were more color selections. No mask system can compare with the proflex's ability to mix and personalize. Considering the ease of use, it's a compromise I'm willing to live with.

I took off one star as some of the adhesive emblems have come off. The functionality of the mask overall is excellent.

Have been using these for about four months. They have a simple, straightforward breakdown and can easily be thoroughly cleaned. I'd caution anyone not to apply water/solution or an extremely wet towel to the edges of the double pane. I got a small amount of lens cleaner between the panes and as a result they'll fog slightly after a long duration of continuous use. They're very comfortable and leave you feeling well protected. I scored mine at a fairly reasonable price, but at anything more than $80/90 I feel they're a bit overpriced. It may just be me, but I find the visor attachments a little unstable; as long as you can manage to leave them untouched they should be fine. Overall I'd call them a good investment.

Empire E-Vents ZN Plenty of color options to choose from. By far the easiest mask to change the lens. I like the ability of changing the straps. But just not any aftermarket straps that I've found.

Empire E-Vents are Empire's high-end version of the Avatar and their answer to Sly's Profit mask and Dye's i4 goggle line. They are incredibly light and comfortable on your head, but as with all high-end paintball gear, you certainly pay the price.

The thermal lens does wonders to prevent fogging. Like most lenses, they are pretty easy to smudge with your fingers, but the included microfiber cloth eliminates that from being a serious concern. The visibility with these goggles is every bit as good as you would expect from a $100 product. Every strap is high quality and the chin-guard is softly padded, although the actual chin strap can be irritating if not adjusted perfectly. The ear protection is soft enough to be comfortable and hard enough to provide plenty of protection. The mask comes with two visors that attach themselves to the top of the helmet if you feel you need more forehead protection.

Events are touted for superior breath ability to their Profit counterparts. The mask is very cool and does not feel restrictive at all. It is easy to breathe and, despite a slight echo, talking is clear.

Positives:
+Light
+Good looking
+Comfortable
+High quality straps
+Good field of vision
+Very breathable
+Fits well
+Does not fog

Negatives
-Price
-Annoying chin-strap

Empire E-vents are a high quality option for players looking to wear a sleek-looking, comfortable pair of goggles and are not afraid to spend a few bucks in the process.

I picked these up right when they were relased and they havent fogged up on me yet. They fit my face, and are very comfortable. What more can one ask from a goggle system.

My only gripe with them is that if its sunny I get the top vent part of the mask reflected onto the top 1/5th of my lens. I can see it, and its annoying to me. Probably wouldn't be a problem if I wore the visor, but I don't.

All in all they are my favorite goggles. If you are in the market I suggest stopping by your local store and at least trying them on.

This is a great mask, I recently bought it thinking it was the best mask out there, and I still do. The only downfall or disappointment I had with the mask was that after using it for a long period of time one day, It fogged up on me. I have the anti-fog lens and everything so this kinda confused me haha. but Its still a great mask!!

Weight: The weight of the events are decent, while playing some speedball i was diving and sliding alot and they kept sliding around on my face but it stays in place while running... So a 4/5

Looks: Looks AMAZING put some ninja lenses on them and they turn into a godly looking mask... love it 5/5

Breathability: This is where i had troubles, i got these and my first day with them was probably around 80 degrees (F) and i was breathing HARD! i thought it was just a lot of hard work and thats why i was so hot and heavy but when i took off my mask i felt like i could breath 10x easier... i give em a 3/5

Durability: Very durable, had them for around 8 months and havnt had a problem with maintenence... Just make sure u clean them after each day and you should be set....
