The E-vents are my favorite mask. The only downfalls I've seen is that the foam wears out quickly if you play often, and the clips that retain the soft ears in place are easy to lose, and cannot be replaced independently of the mask (to my knowledge). As far as changing lenses, it can't get too much simpler. Lots of visibility, fair coverage, soft material that is more likely to take "bounces."

Pros: Comfort, lens changing, quality build (minus ears)
Cons: Soft ears deteriorate, front view of mask
I've owned a lotta E-vents, and I can say this is a great quality mask. I rated it a 3.75/5. It's not the most comfortable out there, but the foam is decent and it fits securely on your face. The soft ears also protect against ear shots well.

I do have a couple of complaints though. I don't like the field of view on these. When compared to Grillz, i4's, or Profilers you can see a lot more of the foam and the inside of the mask when you're wearing it. You don't notice when you play, but it's much nicer to look out of a lens and only see lens, no foam. I also have a problem with the soft ear cloth material falling off after about a half season of use. This has happened with all of my masks pretty consistently. You can buy replacements of course. As far as appearance goes, I think these look pretty dopey and wide from the front view. I like to look intimidating, and these don't do it for me. If I wear a blacked out lens they look better

The lenses are easy to change out, which is nice when you're in a hurry between games and it's covered in paint. Rather than wipe it off, it takes about 20 seconds to change. It saves you precious seconds!

Although it's not my favorite, you'll be very happy with this mask.

Pros: Lens System, Stylish
Cons: Venting, Foam
Originally this mask platform was the first I began using when getting into competitive paintball, it was definitely a decent choice. This mask is very comfortable and the lens design offers a wide range of sight for players. The lens is also very easily and quickly removable with the quick change system. Downsides became apparent were the lack of venting on the front to provide better breathing and vocalization, as well as a foam design that was not easily replaceable.

Empire E-Vent (original) This mask is by far the best and easiest i have ever used, changing out the lens is a snap cleaning is very easy.

Price paid: $55.00
Pros: Looks, price, lenses, weight
Cons: Airflow
Looks: The event is one of the best looking masks on on the market. I got mine in yellow/black.

Performance: the events are not exactly that easy to breathe through, but there are plenty of good things about this mask to outweigh the cons. This mask is lighter than my i3 and proflex. The lenses are both huge and give you a wide range on view. The soft ears are ok, they are a little stiffer than I would have liked, but this doesn't matter to me anyway. Most of this mask is made out of a soft rubbery material, but the colored part is a very light, sturdy plastic.

Maintainance: I have only changed the lenses on this mask a couple of times, but I can already change it in a 1:15. I haven't gotten shot in the grill yet, but it looks like it would need a air can or something to clean out the grill.

Value: Well, instead of telling you what I think about the value, Ill say what it comes with an the price and of you decide whether or not the value is good. The events come with 2 lenses, one smOke and one clear, a visor, a brow shield, a mask bag, a lense bag, a manual, the mask, and a nice case/ stand. I paid $55 for it. You can decide whether or not that was a good deal.
