So after having used E-Flexes for about half a year now, I can officially say that overall this mask is great. It provides great face coverage and I feel comfortable shouting out of it as I do not feel that my chin or mouth is ever exposed which I feel is noticeable particularly as someone coming from I4s. The lenses are the same as the e'vent or helix which is a very effective thermal lens with good visibility and a very simple quick change system that, while it requires a few motions, is still very easy to use. On your face, it really does not feel like you are wearing a mask at all as the mouthpiece and nose piece are very far forward. The only con is that you have to really make sure you have a snug fit with these goggles which sees a lot of moving and tightening of the strap which changes with any headgear you put on. It has a different fit that you have to test for any headgear so always check it every time. Otherwise it is a very solid mask from empire that I would recommend to any player looking for a new mask.

I bought a pair of camo eflexs used here on PBN and I am very pleased with them. The quality, as expected from empire, is top notch. They look great in camo. The paint looks very even and has held up very well. The quick change lens is very easy to do. I did it the first time without even looking up how to do it.

Only con is they seem to sit a little high on my nose. I only notice it when I am not playing though. When I am on the field I don't feel like it is too high or anything.

I bought these used and with a crazy scratched up lenses. I then go new lenses aurora ones. I repainted the goggles and put the lenses in. They look amazing, they breath great and they dont fog at all. They are very comfortable and have good coverage.

The only con is that the lenses seem to scratch easy. That may just be the lenses I got though.

It was between these and the events.

First of all, I wanted a goggle system that allows me to breath. This is a personal preference.

This mask is very breathable. The field view in my opinion could be a little better. The stock lense came with a black border which skewed my vision a little.

They don't fog.

If they are kept bent for a long period of time, they can be a little tough to put back to normal.

The ears come out very easily, and the overal mask can be disassembled quite easily for cleaning.

If you wear glasses, you can easily and comfortably keep them on under the mask, which is a HUGE plus in my opinion (in case I want to wear my sunglasses and not have to spend another $80 for a polarized lense)

This review is based from a photographer's point of view.

Pros:
This mask breaths VERY well. It breaths as well or better than the original ProFlex, and it stomps on the ventilation of the EVents.

The lens on this is very large, and gives great visibility on peripheral angles. It is also very flat, which allows a photographer to bring the camera closer to their eyes.

It's a small thing, but I know people like to customize their gear. This mask can be customized to the same extent as the ProFlexes, so have at it.


Cons:
This mask is quite wide. I could see it being a good feature for larger players, but I'm a small guy... and if I were a player and not a photographer, I'd choose a smaller mask.

The fitment on the nose is a little tight when putting the mask on at an angle that feels comfortable on me. I have to set the mask rather high on my nose or I feel myself getting constricted.

It's also a tiny bit heavy, but it's not a deal breaker.


Overall:
This mask is the favorite of the many I've used. I'd recommend it for medium to larger players, as it is a little wide on smaller people. It feels very solid and well put-together.

I have had a Jt Pro Flex for over the last 10 years and it has been one of my favorite mask, so like other proflex fans I jumped at the chance to get an E Flex.

Overall I think itsa great mask and lives up to Empire's claim, but I have a few gripes.
1. The strip in the thermal can get in your field of vision, it should be pushed towards the edge more.
2.The price. Is it really worth the additional $40 over a Pro Flex?

Recently picked up an E-Flex after debating which mask to get. I had purchased a set of Sly Profits, but they just didn't fit my head head properly. The E-Flex covers more of my jawline and breathes a lot better than the Profit.
Compared to the Profit however, I feel that the Profit lens change is a little easier, and the Profit has more comfortable foam. Speaking of foam, the foam on the E-Flex is super thick and makes the mask set further off my face than most other masks. I have read though that once they are broken in, the foam will compress some making the mask set more like others.
Breathing is awesome in the E-Flex, as is the Field of View. Long story short, the E-Flex is currently my favorite goggle on the market.
