Cons: Uncomfortable at first. Annoying lens
Been using this mask for about 3 months. I believe this mask gets more comfortable every time I use it. However, it did not start out that way. The foam and lens are my biggest problems. At first glance (or feel) the foam feels supple and comfortable. When wearing it at first the foam is actually uncomfortable. It's not as soft and supple and one first thought. It does break in with use and as mentioned before; it does get more comfortable over time. The lens does have a black line (thermal lens) that you can't help but look at annoyingly. That is something that you can't get rid of.

Hands down, best mask I've owned to date. I loved the lens on events and loved the soft foam and flex bottom on Flex's so when they combined the 2 and made refinements they created the perfect mask.

Pros:

extremely comfortable, light, easy to change lens, nice durable soft ears, very easy to see out of, easy to communicate and breathe out of. I can't say enough good.

Cons: Nothing yet

I've owned everything from Empire, JT, Dye, Proto, Vforce, Sly and would pick this mask over anything else on the market at this time.

Pros: SUPER LIGHT
Cons: None so far
I bought and used this mask at PSP Chicago and loved it! it has the event frame, with the flex bottoms, and the very loved flex foam. The foam is just outstandingly comfortable. Ive never been a flex fan, but always an event fan.

They are super light on your face, the ear pieces are very nice, and big, compared to the flex that was terrible(soft ) and the thing i like about them is the customization ability.

You can take your favorite strap, your favorite bottoms and favorite ears, while keeping the event frame and you have a customized eflex.

The event lens changing system is dummy proof. anyone can do it.
the flex lens changing, terrible, i wouldnt be able to pull it out to the point of just terror . but they really did come out with a hit with the eflex.

id give it an a+

Pros: Breathable, Never Fogged, Comfortable
Cons: Lense Tightness, Flex warps
I bought this mask a couple weeks back and was in love with it at first. Soon I noticed that if the flex part sits on anything it will warp and mis-shape it, much like you see in old flex's. Due to this I had to be very careful and couldn't keep it in my gear bag or it would be all messed up when I pulled it back out.
That was all fine and well until I noticed that the lens starts to lose tightness in the frames and wiggle up and down at the bottom. If you tweak the mask you can see a gap between the lens and frame, seems like a serious design flaw to me.
I only noticed this because I got shot in the base of the lens and paint came through the gap and sprayed me in the eyes.
Since then I feel unsafe and haven't worn them
I've owned e-vents in the past and never had this problem, I think its due to the frame and bottoms being separate, it seems to weaken the strength of the mask.
Hopefully I just got a defective mask and they aren't all like this :/

I was very excited to see this mask released, finally an updated version of the flex that did the mask justice. I loved the event's lens system and design to begin with so coupling that with the flex's super ventilated bottoms was a stroke of genius. Inside the mask is the famous JT foam lining it that flex fans will know and love, along with some new soft-ear design that delivers the protection and durability the flex and events lacked. All around beautiful mask and by far one of the best i've had on my face(and i've worn a lot of masks). The only thing I could say brings this mask down is the daunting price tag. $109.00 is very steep for a mask(however nice it may be) along with the fact that you are no longer getting the extras you expected out of the original events for the price you had to pay then. What I mean of course is only one lens is provided, single clear lens instead of both a smoke and clear lens, and no visor what so ever, where as before a visor and brow shield were standard.

Empire E-Flex One of the most comfy masks I've worn. Very good vision. Honestly the only thing wrong is the price.
