Events, Eflex or I4's?

I'm in the market for a new mask after returning a profiler to ANS gear. I will be ordering online again (store credit) so I cant try any of them on. I'm looking for opinions on the following masks; Events, Eflex, and I4. I'm about 5'8 average build. I have had flex 7's in the past and loved them but am just looking for something different.

If you like the flex 7 then there is really nothng out there that can compare. I have 15 mask and love all my flexes- 7,8 proflex. Sometimes i wear my profiler, i4, events. Sold my eflex.
I thnk you can look into buying a flex 7 again or flex 8.best most comfortable mask ever imho

It really depends on you. I have all three masks and think they are all wonderful masks. The E-Flex and E-Vents sit farther away from your face than the i4s do. Try each mask before making a decision, but all of those masks are great.

Eflex or events. Very comfortable, plenty of face protection great field of vision. I4's are pretty small and dont protect your face like other masks.

I wish I could try them on but there aren't really any paintball stores here. Maybe when I go play tomorrow the field will have one in the pro shop.

I've gone through a few different masks, and I'd say that the E-Flex is by far my favorite.

I love my eflex, just as comfortable as the proflex I had, but with a better lens change system. If you're getting it from ANS you can also order the brow shield from the event and it will fit. I have it on mine and it works great for your forehead. I don't know why Kee doesn't include the two visors like they do with the event seeing as how the eflex is more, but that's really my only complaint about it.

The E-Vents and E-Flex have a much looser fit than the i4s. As such, they feel as if they breathe better. The i4s are much more snug. It really depends what you like the feel of. I know I love all three masks, but I know a lot of people who dislike the E-Vents and E-Flex because they feel the foam pinches the nose. Another thing to note is that the E-Vents come with pretty stiff foam. It will not feel soft like the i4s or E-Flex until you break it in.

Thanks for the replies everyone but I'm still uncertain as to which on to get. I guess I'll just have to roll the dice and pick one.

Used my eflex finally and realized how much of an annoyance it is to see the thermal part of the lens. I may rip it out and take my chances with fog.

All are good masks. I love my E-vents. I wear glasses and the cut outs on the sides work perfectly with them.

I have all three and like them all. If I had to choose my favorite it would probably be the E-Vents or i4s.

This is the reason I can't use e-flex or events the foam is in my line of vision.
