I went to a store before buying this to try on different models. I chose this one because it was the most comfortable, best looking, and is compatible with some of my other masks.

Pros:
Comfort: This mask is very comfortable. I occasionally catch myself forgetting that I have it on my face! The foam on the inside is very nice.
Looks good: At the time, I found this mask to be the best looking available. I bought the olive colored model, and I love the way it looks.
Breatheability: I know that's not a real word, but oh well! I can't breathe out of my Sly Profit mask, which is the main reason that I switched to this. I love how it's very open, and easy to breathe out of.
Lens: All the Empire/Invert lenses are interchangeable, which is awesome. I love the fact that I can swap lenses out of this with my E-Vent mask. Also, I like that you can switch the rubber bottom parts with the Pro-Flex Mask.

Cons:
Price: I think that this mask was a little over priced when I bought it. I wish that things weren't so expensive in paintball.
Snugness: One reason that I temporarily switched to the Sly Profit mask was because they tend to move a lot. I've frequently had to adjust my mask while playing. Since purchasing, I've stitched in another strap which has taken care of this problem.

Overall, I love the E-Flex. Even though I have two other masks, I use this one as my primary mask!

This mask is awesome! I bought it coming off of a pair of Dye I4's which I absolutely loved and swore by. However, when looking for a new mask I looked primarily for a pair that offered a visor. Anyways, this is my breakdown..

Pros:
This mask is VERY breathable. The foam is really comfortable and feels very good. The whole mask overall is very comfortable. The optical clarity of the lense is great as well. A huge plus for me is the visor. Overall it is a great mask!

Cons:
The bottom of the mask is fairly open and you could get shot there. Also, the lense is advertised as easy removal however it is actually a little annoying. You need to remove a tab on either side, swivel the ears 90 degrees, than push out another pin. The annoying part is the little tab you need to remove because it's easy to lose those if you were to do it on the field. Another con I have is that I don't think they look as good as some of the other masks already out and some of the ones that are being released this year. (2013)

I had been looking forward to this mask for some time now. I have a rather extensive JT Proflex collection... Somewhere near 50 ProFlex's...

Everything about the concept of the E-Flex is spot on in my opinion.

- Foam like JT ProFlex (not really)
- Interchangeable bottoms (yeah, but they're just not the same and they are pretty tough to get through the hole on the ProFlex frames)
- Quick change lens (this is true)
- Event type soft ears (nice feature)

All in all a great concept and I'm sure a nice mask for many... But it will in no way be able to take the place of my beloved ProFlex's... The foam is much stiffer and the EVent type frame just seems to press in on my nose way too much. I have a very normal size nose, on the smaller side if anything. They just aren't nearly as comfortable as a real ProFlex.

It'd be nice if Empire would just make some new style frames for an already nearly perfect mask... The JT ProFlex. It they just had a frame that was nearly the same in looks, but with a slightly easier lens change system. That would truly be a perfect mask.

Pros: breathable, bounces off lower mask
Cons: price, weight
I picked this mask up in a trade for a Sly Profit.

The flex parts of this mask are great. They offer great beathability, a smaller profile than the original proflex mask, and the lowers behave the same way (a bounce every now and again).

The parts I had issue with - 1) the foam isn't as good as the older Proflexs. But from messing around in the store, newer JT masks don't have as nice foam as my older masks do... so I'm not too sure what is happening at the factory.

2) The mask seems a bit heavier than the Proflex. No big deal, but it was a little unexpected.

I would recommend this mask, if someone wanted to spend high dollar on a paintball mask. If someone was price conscious, I would recommend the Proflex.

Cons: Not as good breathability as proflexes
I have had E-Flexes for about five months. They have not broke or have had any problems.I like that the ears are harder than the proflexes and cover more.They feel good when there on your head.They are easy to take apart and clean. You can really customize every part or piece on them, which you cant with most other masks.The only downside I would say is they are harder to breathe than when your wearing proflexesbecause the bottoms are closer to your face.There are also many colors to chose from.I would definitly recommend this mask to anyone who loves paintball.

Pros: Comfy, Large Field of Vision, Light, Quick Change
Cons: tabs holding in lens, Nose Piece
Bought the E-Flex a couple of weeks ago on a special discount at the cpx pro shop and wow am i amazed! Super Comfortable, super lightweight, and an enormous field of vision! Quick Change lens is nice, except the little tabs that hold them in can be easy to lose. Soft ears offer lots of protection and comfort. Great Breath ability, almost feels like you have no mask on at all! The stock lens that comes with the mask does have a black thermal lining that does get in your field of vision, but once you start playing you dont really notice that. Could be a little more comfortable around the nose, but by no means is it uncomfortable. Would like to see more color options avaliable.

An overall big improvement over proflex's well worth the extra money.

The eflex looks mean and it combines the great comfort and reliability of the flex with the great looks of the events.
The foam is amazingly soft.
The lense is so quick to change and is 100% easier to swap than the regular flex lense.
This quick tear down makes it so easy to clean up after a day of Play.


The only negative was how long I had to wait to finally get one.

Pros: Breatheable, light weight, extremely comfortable
Cons: Nothing
My favorite thing about this mask is that its very, very comfortable, and that it breathes well. Like the previous JT flex you can roll the rubber, mouth vent backwards when youre not in play but still in a "Mask On" area. For those who have used either empire eventz or jt flex's in the past, the empire lenses, and jt mouth pieces are compatible.
Its not the flashiest mask but like the jt flexes, im sure various colored ear pieces, bottoms, tops are in the works.

Overall id recommend this mask. Ive been in some pretty humid weather and no fog!!!

The new E flexs are very comfortable. They feel like the pro flexes with all the ease of cleaning a quick release lens system brings. For those that play 24 hour games it removes the need for multiple goggles tinted for day and clear at night. The plus side of using the event lenses is that there are already every type of lens available. the only thing that I see that could be a problem for some is the size. It fits me great but if your head is small it might be a little on the big side.
