E-Vents, and all Vents goggles Questions and answers

Hey man well while I was playing/reffing today one of the emblems fell out of the ear clips. I was wondering if there are replacement ones I could buy or something of the sort cuz right now its looking pretty haggard.

Thanks in advance, great design for mask,
Brett

Sure. Call and ask for Customer services for Brittany. I'll have them for her to ship out to you. What colour? Is it one of the original metal emblems?

Call Brittany Ritchie on 800-346-5615 or e-mail brittany@nationalpaintball.com

On the E-vents the mask is so flexible that the bottom area there is NOT supposed to be glued. It is actually held in place at the top where it is glued to the black and the foam baffles are supposed to just line up with the mask in that area.

In assembly they tried to glue some in that area (like they are supposed to with the Cylus goggles) and it just peels up from the flexible white part. It's not going to come off because of how it glued to the black. You can just rub off the glue from the white area or leave it.

We are still fine tuning the assembly process and people assembling the goggles. There are so many variations of the mask that they have made some small mistakes like this, but most of them we have caught.

p.s. You don't really need that part on the E-vents anyway. All of the original Pro Players goggles don't have it.

Hey Manike I've noticed the same thing but with the top part of the foam, so I tried to quick fix it with super glue(I was at PSP and still had games to play). Is there any way to get that fixed?

Also any way to buy new lense clips cuz the emblem of my right ear clip came out
