Empire E-Vents ZN Over all a great mask. They take a little bit of time to get use to. The only bad thing about this mask is the time it takes to clean paintball breaks on the mask it self

The Empire E-Vents were the first high-end goggle system I purchased. I had previously been using an ancient Java mask and then an old Invert Vents mask that I love to pieces, and is where the E-Vents came from.

The E-Vents are very much similar to the incredibly popular Empire E-Flex mask that addressed just about every complaint players had with the JT ProFlex, differing mainly in the mouth area.

The E-Vents share the awesome Empire lens system which allows you to change lens and clean very easily compared to the ProFlex that has a terrible lens change system. With the E-Vents, pop two tabs off, twist the soft ears up, and pop the strap off and the lens is out just like that. Don't believe me? Watch this video by ANSGear showing how to change the lens.

According to Empire's product description, there was some serious thought put into the shaping of the bottom of the mask in terms of air flow to prevent fogging. This is somewhat true, though I have only ever had the mask fog once and I was breathing really, really hard and not moving or playing but it cleared up really quickly.

All good things aside, all of the little slits that make up the mouthpiece of the mask are a pain in the behind to clean out. The best way to do it is to run water through them because there's no way you're going to get paint out of the little slits with a rag or paper towel. It's that or just let it stay there.

Compared to the ProFlex and E-Flex look, the E-Vents look a little odd, but they are unique. My friend just told me today they make me look like a monkey, but I love my E-Vents anyways.

In brief, the Empire E-Vents are a solid goggle system and are time-tested to be one of the best masks out there. The spacious yet slim design will fit heads of all sizes, something masks like the Sly Profit and Dye i4 masks can't compete with.

Empire E-Vents ZN I owned a pair and recently sold them and have regretted it since. They never fogged on me and had good ventilation. They also covered my face entirely.
