I personally like the sly's better. The e-vents sat off the front of my face too much. The sly's offer great protection and amazing foam. Really can't go wrong either way. I suggest finding a proshop near you and trying them both on if your able.

I just tried on all the mask at store and went with the Sly's over I4's, E-vents, Proto's, V-force. I got a big head but the Sly's fit the best, now i need to test them.

I own both the Sly Profit and the Empire E-Vents ZN and I will say that I like the E-Vents better than the Profits. They breathe better and are lighter. Also, I feel as if the Profits muffle my hearing.

I own both and for the most part wear profits>e-vents. Profits offer better protection (only mask that covers my ears) at the expense of being microwave ovens. They are super hot masks! E-vents are the most comfortable mask next to flex's at the cost of protection. As stated before events are a little bigger and sit further off your face.

If you can manage try on both and play a few points.

The reason people say the events sit so far off from one's face is beacause no one wears them correctly Many try to wear them with the strap parallel to the ground when it should be positioned at a slightly upward angle ensuring it fits snugly on your head and will not slip off. Also the profits are much bulkier and cause a lack of sound clarity. Just my 2 cents

If you want events with customization and more breathability then wait a couple months for the e-flex. Event lenses with proflex bottoms that are interchangeable with all flex/spectra bottoms. Also the only items customizable on the events are the logos on either side, the lens w/ mask wrap, and the strap/soft ears.

yeaaahhh Bro remember when we played together and you got to see how I wear my mask? o_O
I know how to wear a mask properly.. measure the depth of the lens to the foam.. e-vents sit further out on your face. no matter how high up your strap is.


If you think that no one wears their mask correctly take another look around.

and if your really really interested I can post a beautiful picture of how awesome I am at wearing a mask :p lol

I'd go with the sly mask, just in my opinion though.

this. i used the profits all of last season, and hated them. they fog easily. hard to breathe in. the only upside of profits is having great protection. but what mask doesnt already offer that...? EVENTS ALL THE WAY

Try them on, see what you like best, then buy them. How should WE know what YOU would like more?

I own both as well, played alot with each one, id say E-vents. They are lighter, you can see more. and in my opinion breathe better. The profits are almost the same though. the ear protection on them is like no other high end mask, sometimes prevents hearing, i didnt think it was to bad. breathing is good, it has two head straps. Both come with dual thermal lenses, profits have the fade lense, events have clear. both have nice packaging from company. the Sly mask bag is better then the one for the events. Both for 100 bucks. or around there. all in all your getting a really good mask with which ever one you get.
