have been using these goggles since around 2010, they are dam great, I will almost have 10 years with them and they are still going strong, the only thing that no longer works is the foam, but hey, its 10 dollars.

When it was new, it was superb, you could shout and not ring your ears, that was the purpose of the 3-spiked plastic thing on the cheek, but it fell quite soon, which was a bad thing, and its one of those things that you easily loose on the field and will never again find.

I also love how well it covers your face, vs the dye i4, I always hated how it never really covered your lower jaw, yes I find it more appealing, but I rather be protected that look good, and the e-vents always did that, which I am grateful for.

These things were sweeeet they look amazing and have very big lenses so your field of view was very good and they come in a bunch of different colors but at times they were a little hard to breath in and harder to clean than some masks but I would still recomend these to people. Good masks.

First I will say these are some of the nicest looking googles I've ever seen with the Grillz being up there as well.

The E-Vents are light and have overall good vision but this brings up one of my 2 complaints.

The nose area pinches weird around the nose and rides high on my nose blocking some of my vision. It seems the guys with smaller/narrower heads don't have this problem.

My second complaint is the removable lenese. It's not that it's hard to remove the lenes ~ it's just not as stupid easy or as quick as VForce Profiliers (my google of choice).

I say if you like the fit on these then they are an excellent google system. I really and truely love them except for how they ride high on my nose.

Empire E-Vent (original) Ive had the events since they first came out and they are still my favorite mask on the market. They give you a wide range of view and are easy to clean.

Empire E-Vent (original) i owned events a while ago- the original soft ears weren't that good, but i';m sure the ZN's are much better. lens replacement is quick and easy, and mask disassembles fast

The E-Vents are the best masks i have ever had. I would easily recommend this t everyone. It loos great and the lens is very easy to take out and clean. The only little bad part is that if your start breathing to hard the mask might fog up because there are not enough vents to vent out your breath. To easily avoid this is to just pull the bottom part of the mask farther away from your mouth.

All in all the is the best buy to make if your are looking for a great mask.

i wouldn't really wear any other mask, but that's not saying it's perfect by any means.

PROS
-looks like a mix between sexy and intimidating
-soft foam and ears are very comfy and don't squeeze your face
-comes with visor, brow shield, and extra lens
-lens are extremely easy to remove
-fogging never an issue
-easy to get bounces (minus the forehead area)
-low profile

CONS
-even for the 75 bucks i paid for it new, i'm still not sure it's worth that
-very little coverage around neck, jawline, and forehead (even with visor)


imo, events are overall better masks than flex 8's, but it really comes down to your preference in face fitment and profile.
