Need mask. Help!

Ok so the nearest store is about 2 hours away for me and they are currently out of I4's.

My question is on I4's vs Events vs Profits.

I have had the same mask since I started, a red first gen Vforce profiler. It's done me well, but I need a new one.

I love the look of all the above mentioned, but have some concerns. I've read through the threads and found that the size will be fine as I have a large head. So thanks for your help there nation

Ok so my questions:
Reading around I have seen that some people find it harder or more difficult to breathe in the Profits. How is it compared to a profiler? I4? Events?

How is visibility? I love my profilers because I have great vision from all sides.

Fogging is important, but these masks should be fine. If not i'll buy some antifog. I also have read that the profits have hearing issues for some people - this is fine for me.

What I'm really looking for is a nice light mask that breathes EXTREMELY well. Any help or pics are appreciated as I cannot try before I buy :/

I have a feeling most of you will say get a Flex, but I don't like how they look.

How can you not like how they look you can customize them to your exact taste all the other Masks all you can do is change the lense and strap but with a flex you can change the frames, bottoms, lenses, strap, ears and there are so many Colors and varietys!

Haha, I saw that coming^

I don't know. They look cheap to me I guess. I know they are great masks and last forever. Just not my style.

Look at it this way are there any other masks that a frame or a bottom sells for $50+ alone and has straps that sell for $100+? flex's are the only mask that you can sell for that amount of money they are far from cheap and one of the most comfortable around. They offer great vision as well and the best part is say your frames or bottoms get damaged you can swap them out with these others masks you cant! profits are nice and superrrr comfy but get really hot, your voice is muffled, and whenever you yell its amplified into your ear. i4's are super small, very uncomfortable, and personally I don't like how they look but that's just a preference. Then as far as events they just feel cheap and ive never been a fan of how they look there way to plain for me. and there not that comfortable.

Just my 2 cents haha

Thanks for the input. Maybe I'll look closer into these flex. I've been out of the game for about four years. Have they come out with anything new? I know the Flex 8 came out soon before I stopped.

And the only way I would probably wear a flex is if I had white frames and bottoms with my JT techno strap. Haha

Going to agree with you and say that Flex's are the ugliest mask. I cannot stand them. Couldn't care less about a 100 dollar strap.

The I4 is going to be light and low profile as you can get. It will breathe great and you will barely notice it as the vision is great.

If your a big guy then they dont fit well and leave you exposed. they do have great vision but there so small that there uncomfortable to me. some people like them some dont its all an opinion .

i dont really care for the profits to much. they have a lot of echo, they dont breathe well and they fog. i love both the i4's and grillz though. i4's have better field vision but the grillz are more comfortable. both have great breathability and haven't had either fog on me.
