Need to tighten up E-Vents, strap too loose?

Hey guys did a couple forum searches, and unless I'm missing something, there's nobody else with this problem? I have a set of E-Vents that no matter how tight I pull the strap, it's still too loose. I switched over from I4s because of our Empire sponsorship, so I'm limited as to what I can do. Are there any aftermarket straps that will pull the mask tighter to my face, and leave less wiggle/slide? I wear size 7 1/8 hat, and have a narrow face so could really use some ideas here, thanks!

Yes; Replace the strap with the Shorter version of the KM strap. This will solve your issue. It sucks when you spend that kind of money on a mask and have to mod it to make it safe to use. I had to do this to mine before I went back to the I4s.

Well the I 4s were so snug, maybe I just notice it more, but thanks!

I know I've seen a thread on making old, worn straps usable again (I think it was specifically for old JT motorsport straps?). Essentially it required cutting the strap and re-sewing it. Might be the way to go?

Or you could always do that to. Get your Martha Stewart on
