Yeah, it was awesome until the lenses pulled apart. I haven't attempted to contact their CS yet because I've been busy with the move. From what I've seen from the backlog though I'm not hopeful.

Yeah, that's why I'm not hopeful. I've only been able to find a couple smoke aand clear.

I am looking forward to this new E-flex even though I wasn't a fan of the e-vents.

What didn't you like about the E-Vents?

Amber is discontinued in the US. At least that's what my Procaps/Vforce rep had to say.

In fact, about all you can get right now with the dual panes for the Grill is the clear ones.

Weight
Very, very light. I'm not sure of the exact weight, but from personal experience I think its lighter then the Profiler and around the same weight as the ProFlex.

Looks
This is personal preference of course, but I think that the E-Vents are the best looking pair of goggles out there. I've owned and seen just about every pair out there, and these are defiantely my favorites.

Comfortable
The foam on the E-Vents is very soft, similar to that of a ProFlex. When I first got them I couldn't help but walk around with them on everywhere I went (inside the house of course)

Packaging
I was very impressed with the strong and solid plastic housing the E-Vents came in. This ensures that there is no way your mask is going to be damaged during shipping, and it also doubles afterwards as a nice storage case.

Ventilation
The slits in the front made it very easy to breathe.

No Fog
After a full day of playing I didn't have one issue with the lense fogging up. In fact, I would intentionally breathe heavily to see what would happen, and still no fog.

Visibility
Great field of vision, plain and simple.

Accesories
Along with the E-Vents you get 2 lenses (smoke and clear), 2 visors, microfiber cloth, and a bag for travel. No other mask on the market comes with that many goodies with it, which was a huge plus.

Price
To be quite honest, I think the price is justified. When you think about it, ProFlex owners, between the mask, a new lense, strap, and frame, can spend all the way up to $120 on their mask. With the E-Vents, there is nothing you need for it, because it comes with a very nice Empire Camo Strap, Smoke Lense, and pre-cut soft ears out of the box.
Conclusion: Overall, the E-Vent's are great masks. They are very light, offer a wide field of vision and superb ventilation, and are definately head-turners. I've owned Dye Invisions, ProFlex's, Flex 8's, and Profilers, and I would take these over any of them any day.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

Not mine. I cut the pasta from a pbreview entry to say what I couldn't in my own words.
