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.

Pros: Breathable, Comfortable
Cons: Vision, one aspect of lens change system
Pros:
-Very breathable
-Comfortable
-Easy to double strap

Cons:
-The thermal lense lining of the visor personally interferes with my vision down the bottom middle portion of the goggle which I personally cannot stand
-Lens change system is terrible or even hard to operate however the little tabs that come off for lens changing is annoying as you would have a chance of losing them quite easily if you're in a rush or just plain unlucky

Overall, I would say this google isn't bad overall if you don't mind the little black line on the lower portion of your vision however I personally will not use these goggles if I have other choice. A similar mask would be the JT proflex that I would much rather have over the eflex.

being a long time jt flex owner, i had to try the eflex when it was released. my first impression was the mask was very uncomfortable on my nose (could be that i have a crooked nose), but overall felt really nice. i like the ear pieces that empire uses. very nice, and it beats the older style JT foam ears.
i also like that you can still use your JT bottoms on the empire goggles. adding my clear bottoms to the eflex, made it look like an entirely different mask.

highly recommend this mask to anyone looking for a new mask. lenses are quick to change out, and it already comes with a dual pane lens to help with fogging.

Went to buy a new mask, and tried on just about everything they had in the store. While i liked the look of some of the other masks better. i found that this mask was by far the easiest to breathe in! This mask is super comfortable, offers the same great protection as others, easy to change lens, and it doesn't feel like im breathing my own hot air. Very satisfied with my choice! and i think you will be too!
