This mask is the bomb! Its the best mask i got lately!

about the clear lense. My friend bought his Events last summer and after a month of play, his clear lense started to crystalize.. like the coat on it started to come off and it ruined the lense. Also when i got my mask i want to do some practice shooting and i got a little bit of paint on it. Cleaned it off and it started to crystalized like my friends mask did.

Pros: cool, good ventalation, comfy
Cons: smears easy
The events are very nice and comfy. They are most likely the most comfy goggles i have ever put on. They are easy to take apart and clean. When you get shot in the mask and you wipe it off for the next game it most often smears. I usually use water, and a microfiber rad and it works fine.
Its a little bit pricy, i belive it is worth the price.

I love my yellow events. I bought them awhile back when my slys crapped out on me. I use them every time I play. I also bought the yellow lens for them. This makes them all the better. I still use my events even though I lost the side clip to hold the ear piece and back strap on my head, but I zipptied it and I have no problems. I would highly recomend these to anyone looking for a cheap but amazing mask

These are some of the best masks on the market! They look really good with a mirror lens, but not so good with a stock transparent one. They preform like a king, extremely comfortable and light weight and the foam is really nice. The reliability is ok, the ear pieces broke and now i have to shove them into the notch where they are supposed to be attached. The value is decent, kinda expenive, but i got mine used for 45 dollars so they are not bad if u get them used. get this mask if Dye I4's dont work well for you.

Cons: neck protection (for some)
After using an old Proto Switch EL for about a year, I decided it was time to upgrade since I was getting into more competitive paintball. Choosing a higher end mask provided me with much to choose from. However, I chose the E-Vents by Empire because of its good cost to performance ratio. The E-Vents has proven to be a solid mask worth every penny.

Appearance: The first thing that came into my mind when I saw the black mask was: Darth Vader. The E-Vents is aesthetically pleasing and looks pretty intimidating.

Performance: When I first played with this mask, the performance was phenomenal: a big improvement over my old proto. The wide lens gave me excellent peripheral and central vision in addition to not fogging. The small profile made my head a smaller target and yet did not sacrifice any protection for me. (Some people of larger build may disagree.) The clear and smoke lens were easily interchangeable and saved me time when switching from low light indoor conditions to sunlit ourdoor conditions. The venting on the mask may appear to be small, however it works very well. I have never had an trouble breathing through the mask no matter how hot the weather. As cool as the soft face tabs were, they do not cause paint to bounce every time. However, they still gave me an advantage over the hard plastic frame of the proto. Overall, this mask's performance is amazing for the price.

Reliability: I have had nothing on this mask break yet, however, one of the small plastic ear pieces did come off. The small pieces are easy to lose and difficult to find even though they are not a crucial part of the mask. The soft ears still stay on and it has not affected the mask too much but missing parts do subtract from reliability.

Value: I bought the mask from a local shop that gave me a good deal for the mask at the time. Today, with the new ZN E-Vents prices have gone down further. If you are looking for a quality mask for a great price buy an E-Vents.

Overall, the E-Vents by Empire is an excellent mask that delivers performance for a great price. I give it 9.5/10 stars.
