The Empire Vents Avatar Goggles are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.
I've used these puppies in the heat and humidity in the woods with no wind and they didn't fog. I find nothing wrong with these goggles except the top visor part being a pain. if they fog they get replaced, they don't fog. even though i'm quick like a puma, i got shot in the face with these on and they clean easy and lenses come out easy. there a 10.
They are a good buy, i tell it like it is. plus you look like darth vader with them on and that scares people.

Clear lens provided SUCKS
I bought a Black Avatar after doing much research with players at the field that I frequent the most, I looked at Grills, JT flex 8, Dye, and E Vents, I went with the Vents over the E Vent for cost only, about $ 20.00 difference between the two and the only real difference I seen was that the E Vents has a foam style sides next to the ears, besides that they look pretty much the same. I have worn a V Force Profiler for most of my play but have had fogging issues which led me to buying the Avatar. the only problem that I have with the mask is that the clear lens provided with the mask is JUNK. Empire should provide a thermal lens in clear with the mask instead of a single pane lens, the E Vents also has the same clear lens in its package also so beware, I have a buddy that bought the E Vents and the first time he cleaned it it started to peal the clear coat off of the lens, which led me to buy the clear thermal lens along with the Avater mask when I purchased it, best move I made! it has never fogged on me and is easy to clean between games, If you are looking for a great mask this is the one. I will rate this a 9 out of 10 only because of the crappy clear lens provided, that is it no other reason.
It is a great mask, I sweat alot during play which caused my profiler to fog, this changed my day and game, I recommend this mask to all, just do yourself a favor and buy the clear thermal lens also and you won't have any problems at all

This mask is the best mask I have ever worn. When I say that my trusty ol jts were all scratched up, I decided to look for a new lense. When I went online the replacements lenses were more expensive than the mask itself! So off I went on the wed to look for a new set of goggles. I looked at ol pbreview and saw these bad boys. I thought they were awesome until I saw the price! But I decided to look around for this mask for as cheap as possible. I found a pair for 40 bucks! Thats better than 100! When I opened it up I was suprised about how much came with it, a extra lense, a mask bag, lense bag, and more. This mask is the most comfortable mask in the world, you actually forget you are wearing them! The only bad things about this mask are the echo in the mask and the visor and brow shelid. The mask echos alot but it dosent bother me. The thing that stressed me out is the visor and sheild, these things are so hard to get in! But otherwise it is a good mask.
profilers-good but not quite as good
proflex- didn't like them to much
invions- alrighnt but doesnt compare, maybe the new ones would a bit.

These are a great goggle, the best i have ever used. They had great visual clarity, not that u notice much of difference but profilers and these are around the same level.
I absolutely love these goggles, they feel so good on your face and stay tight to your face. My profiler feels good on me just it doesnt stay as tight and it doesn't as good but still pretty good, the avatar beets the profiler for foam padding. I liked how the profiler gets bounces off the grill or atleast it does for me anyways. I dont find as many with the avatar but still very good. Stock right out of the box it comes with 2 pairs of lenses. A dark smoke lense and a clear lenses for people who like shaded or just plain clear.
Im usually not a a fan of dark mirror lenses or dark smokes but this lense i like, it enhances your vision even, not cause there some high-tech technology in it but u dont get glare and bright lights off bunkers and stuff so the sun is no longer as hassle.
the proflex's were alrihgt but they didnt fit my face very tightly. they'd get good bounces but it would sure like **** if you got shot in the ears or sides of the face or even straight on. Good google but i feel the avatars are the best google out there now maybe next to the events but i dont like soft-ears neways. Buy these goggles. They wont dissapoint you.
Buy this. Great goggle, great feel. Won't dissapoint you.

i used to have the V-force profiler for the longest time as my main mask for paintball, untill about a few months ago it was stolen, i have been thinking of getting the Profiler again but decided to look for a new mask, -long story short- i got the empire avatar mask, now like any new mask people just love how it looks feels and performs, but i put this mask through the tests, even tho it does not have a chin strap rolling around, diving, sliding, running, even freak jerks of motion could not move the mask off my face. the mask is very comfortable in my opinion, it doesnt feel strained on my nose or forehead. the vision is extremely clear even when cleaning with microfiber and getting pelted over and over. being a hardcore scenario player and woodsballer im very impressed that it lasted through the whole day especially the lens (i would go through 2 lenses minimum a day)
Honestly its a great mask, my friends, teammates love it and it is not badly priced.

Might be small on some heads
I love this mask. It has never fogged, even in the woods at 90 degrees and 85% humidity. It is also a good rubber, so you get bounces. The foam is very comfortable and feels good. The only problem is some may find it hard to breath through and it might be small for some.

Extremelly Light, Looks Amazing, No Fog at all
Needs a little more neck protection but not bad
This google system is absolutely amazing. Its just as good as the brother mask the Empire Events. After a whole day of playing really no fog at all. Cleaning the mask is very easy because desembling it is easy and i deeply recommend the Plexxus spray. The only cloth you can clean it with is a micro fiber!!!!!!
The only problem i had was that i forgot to take the plastic off the lense when i first got it.

Some times got a few bounces
Low ventelation (ironic!)
This was my second mask I ever owend, and lemme tell ya, this is a great mask. Even though it had low ventilation and a bit of an echo at times it was still worth the envestment, and when my mask got old and worn out i bought the e vents, just cause some times the hard ears on the avatar hurt my fat head!

Price (but it is worth every penny of it)
This mask is great. It never fogs on me like my old mask use to. I got the mask in the Olive color and it blends in. I get so many bounces with it. It comes with a storage case that is made out of silk. It really is a great mask.

This mask is severely above-par. It's almost perfect. It has never once fogged on me. Between the avatars' great bounce and its low profile...you're doing something wrong if you take a shot in the mask virtually any where but the lens.
-Very low profile.
-Changing lenses is a breeze.
-Pretty easy to clean.
-Visibility is crystal with the clear lens.
-Bounce visor actually works.
-Looks wicked mean.
-The tinted lens cuts visibility-not from being darker, but from the fact that it blurs sight like a cheap tint job on your car windows. ( though it might have just been that I got a bad smoke lens).
-A little pricey.
The Avatar is the best mask I've owned, or tried, to date. With just a couple minor cons to it, I give it a 9/10.
