Best masks for breathing easy in

So I just got a set of Grillz and I gotta be honest, I feel like I cant breathe in those at all. So I switched back to my flex 8. What masks are the easiest to talk and breath in? Im thinking of just sticking to proflexes forever

Vios are legit, so are Flexs though. Try a pair on and see how you like them. I used to have Grillz though and loved them but not as much as my Vios.

The vio extend and the e-flex are the only masks I found comparable to proflexes in terms of breathability. Vio contours bounced a lot of hot air back IMO.

Just got my VIO Extend in the mail yesterday. Pretty damn breathable! Not quite as great as a Flex but still really good. I agree that the original VIO Contour was a little stuffy for myself, especially coming from an Eflex. Giving the Extend a shot this weekend at a scenario.

I usually run an E-flex, but I tried on a Vio Extend for the spire deal and it felt pretty good. Probably run the Extend as the backup in the bag.

Proflexs in my opinion. I own two and dont ever have any problems breathing or communicating with other people

Finally used my VIO Extend this weekend at Decay of Nations. Breathed really well in the 100 degree weather. Didn't miss the Eflex at all... except for that awesome foam.

I cut off all the tabs on my lenses except for the top center one. Makes it much easier to switch and stays in place fine. Been doing it for a long time.

as someone with glasses i gotta pay a lot of attention to how a mask breathes. had to sell my i4s and grillz. Took one break in the virtues and fogged up everything.

i wear e-flexes and don't have any issues at all plus the lens system is much improved over the proflex.

I have used most masks, and for the most part they worked fine. Used my Grillz for a while but even with them on the hot hot days I would find both dehydrated and unable to breath. This led me to almost throwing up. My proflexes are the only thing that have actually been able to keep that puking worry at bay for the most part.

I swear by the vio extend. the fit is perfect. the foam is comfy, and breathability is awesome. but it all boils down to whats right for you, so go somewhere that you can try them all on...

seriously, really not in love with the masks getting tighter and tighter on your face since the grill came out almost 10 years ago

e-flexs are just my top choice for comfort and breathability..and price..and communication and style haha

totaly personnal preferences tho!

E flex for breath ability. But I use my grills more simply cause of how they look lol
