Empire E-Flex I have used the E-Flex 3 times now and every time they have been very comfy and stay on very well. No bouncing no fog issues. They are easy to break down and maintain.

Pros: Super Comfortable! Great Foam!
Cons: Pinches the nose, not a super low profile.
I bought one of these right after they came out. I own a Dye i4, Empire E-Vents, and a V-Force Grille, and out of all of these the E-Flex is my go to mask. It is super comfortable. The foam feels as though it is solid and in place, will not come unglued. My only 2 gripes about it is that the foam is so big around the nose area that it pinches the nose a lot and makes it harder to breath through my nose. It also doesn't have a super sleak profile like the i4's do, but I knew that going in. Overall I love this mask.

I love this mask. Zero fogging even when sprinting during a blizzard. Great field of view and the lens replacement is nearly effortless. The flexible face piece is designed perfectly to allow your voice to travel without having to tear up your vocal chords. It is also extremely comfortable and light. It doesn't bounce around on your head either.

I got this mask a while back and so far i have little to complain about. The foam is oft and comfy and its a breathable mask. I wear sunglasses often and this mask works very well with them. The eFlex doesn't work well with head mounted cameras on the side of the mask, such as drift or contour. That is really my only complaint about them

Pros: many! not heavy, looks good, quick lens change
Cons: can't quite think of anything major
I have used and owned many masks over the years and the Eflex is a really great mask. I guess when it comes to goggles I'm pretty picky, since I can't quite operate on the field if I can't properly see what/who I'm doing. I'm not sure it's the "best" mask out there, haven't tried the VIOs yet. But it's gotta be pretty darn close.

The Eflex is great in many aspects. There might be masks that do one thing or another better, but in my opinion, as a package, the Eflex is really hard to beat. I had been using the Grills for many years before, and I still like the mask itself quite a bit, but when they stopped producing the photochromic lens and came up with the thermal dual panes, I started having major headaches on bright sunny days every time I had the thermal lens on. It got so bad that I had to put the grills aside and went with the I4s for a while. turns out the I4s have issues for me as well, other than being too small to cover my whole face. but I digress.

I have owned and used a Proflex in the past, always liked the mask but hated the lens changing system with a passion. It's not even that I'd changed it that often, but I'm the OCD type when it comes to cleaning, especially my mask, for some reason. Could never stand how hard was to get the lens out to clean it, but loved everything else about the mask. When they combined the Vents lens onto the Proflex body, it was a total win-win situation. the only thing is that the color options for the mask and lens wasn't there until very recently.

The new color options and mirrored lens available to the public now, plus the ability to use older flex bottoms and Vents ears makes this a very customizable and desirable package. It's a pretty light mask, not that I'll forget I have it on my face, but weight does not bother me in this case at all. Extremely good breathability, I'd risk to say not other mask breaths as well as this one. It's also a very sharp looking mask.

I love the bounces I get once in a while, and I have no trouble making myself heard and also hearing my teammates. Filed of vision is excellent, I believe most high end masks offer a bigger field of vision than most humans have available to their eyes naturally, so no big deal there. Comes with a neat mask bag.

Can't really find much to put on the "CONs". Price maybe, but most high end masks are priced similarly, even more so when you start to customize them. Maybe those little tabs that hold the ears and lens in place, those are easy to misplace or drop them, but this is really nitpicking at this point. Like I said, this mask does many things very well compared to the similar offerings, and some things better than most, like breathing and bounces. I think that as a total package it's really hard to beat.
