Review: I bought the Empire E-vents after our team decided that they would be our mask of choice.(We are not sponsered) When I recieved themk I was impressed with the large amount of extras you get (smoke lense,clear lense, mask bag, visor, brow shield & lense bag). In my opinion this mask is one of the best looki8ng masks on the market, but obviously looks don't win you the game. The lense changing is extremely easy and can be done in under a minute also installing the brow shield or visor is no where near as hard as it is on other masks. The E-vents has great visibility you can see alot more than another other mask, I tested the i3 and E-vents to see which had the best pheriperal vision and you could see alot more than the i3.

When I used this mask I was impressed with how it resisted fog better than my expectations, I was expected the i3 to come out top in terms of anti-fog. However the E-vents did not fog up all day all that was required was a quick squirt of anti-fog spray and you were ready to go.

I think the key to the mask being resistant to fog is not only the lense but the position of the ventilation as it is very close to your mouth, allowing the air to escape out the mask before it reaches the lense.

Also another key factor in this maybe because of the mask size, it is very small and quite open. You could east get shot in the cheek if you were shouting to teammates or even worse back of your ears if they were behind you.

The mak has great "bouncibilty" I can recall at least 3 incidents when a paintball bounced on the mask. 2 bounced of the actual mask and 1 off the brow shield. I rember being hit right on the flexy part of the mask and it threw my head back, I called to my team mate to ask if i'd been hit, he said no and iI touched the mask to find no paint! Also some of my friends don't wear the brow shield or visor as they think it makes the mask look worse, however if I had not worn the brow shield I would of being out, so sometimes we have to think of function over form.
Conclusion: Great visibilty and anti-fog ability combied with great looks for a reasonable price(when you add on the price of the accessories). Easy to use and maintain the perfect example of function and form. Highly recommended.
