Ok. I got this mask at my local pro-shop and while I was looking for a Halo B for my ion. Then I stumbled across this mask by accident. I saw it and though I need a new mask cause my Elite head shield is bulky. So I got it for 86 dollars and it came with this nice micro-fiber bag that you can clean the lens with. Changing the lenses is easy too. It takes about 20 seconds to take the lens out. Perfect for when your in a hurry and need to clean your goggles. The first time that I played with it it was sooooo comfy and it kept a very small profile. I never got hit on the mask! It also has great anti fog.
If your looking for a great mask that you can count on, this is the one for you!

Easy to clean, wide view in lense, rubber for bounces and its light weight.
Little breath holes, when talking in it u hear echoing.
When i first heard about this mask i heard a lot of complaints from others that there was a communication problem and u have a hard time breathing in it, i found neither to be a real problem, the communication part is fine-you speak clear with it on the only thing is the echo u get from talking, and the breathing part wasnt a problem either but i found myself sweating more in it cause of the lack of holes in its sides.
Overall this mask is definately worth the money and i recommend it to anyone that has the money, u get alot of bounces on it and its easy to clean, jus be aware of the echoing it cause when playing.
Fogs if you breathe heavily.
Stickers easily shot off.
When I got my avatar I was elated. It's a comfortable mask and is easy to clean sins the lens comes off in a manner of seconds. The reason this mask won't be getting a 9 or 10 from me is because of the fogging issue I had at the bridge of the nose where the lens clipped on to the mask. I litteraly had to line that area on the otherside of the mask in order to seal the air of from getting to the lens. I was happy after that but few months later while playing paintball the stickers on the locking clips got shot and they came of the mask, and shortly after then I noticed the foam was coming lose from the brow. This was a pretty expensive mask and it's already coming apart on me. I had to revert to my JT flex Mask in order to play properly last week since this mask looked so worn out and began to fog since the foam came off.
The vents mask is a good design, if it wasn't for the foam, the stickers, and the fogging issue I had to fix it would've gotten a ten rating, at best I'm going to have to give it an 8. If you're a big dude and tend to breathe heavily I wouldn't recommend it. If you're small and/or don't tend to breathe heavily then this mask would probably work for you. But for me back to my JT Flex Mask, I've had that for almost 2 years now and all I've done is change the lens on it.

Exessive nose foam
the foam, can rip or get torn off of frame
I have used my profile for the last 2 years of play and have loved it. i saw these and the E-vent come out and wanted one right away. after i waited like 4moths to get the E-vent they started to tear at the soft ear peices. I returned them and got the avatar because i like the style and design. The nose foam isn't too bad or too much but if you let the googles sit lower on your face then the foam my interfer with your breathing. The mask is a little more flexi in the ears then the profilier and doesnt have any hard plastic parts on the side to catch a paintball either. i love these google over all the other googles on my list besides the profilier. the profiler has slightly better vision to the sides..... i still would take these over my profile though becuae of all the new style and flexy fram. the anti fog is damn near perfect, we played in the rain (florida humidity) all day and i was using the smoke thermal lenses and the rain got on the lenses and they seemed perfect. my friend using my profiler said he was fogging up a bit because of oil from old paint, but i had no problem. think the rain actauuly helped my googles. lol. i3 dye googles, and jt googles are like looking there paper towel tubes (bad vision) compered to these bad boys). these googles are a little less exspensive then the e-vent ones. stick with this avatar googs bcuz the e-vents soft ear peices fall apart and are not made right. best google system out there. very flexiable
conclusion.... these googles are pure sex and they rock alot of socks. The only reson they didnt recieve a perfect 10 or a is because of the foam can rip out if you are not carefull...... i fixed that problem with some good ol' trusty super glue. lol. buy these. they look amazin

Nothing major, view not quite as good as profiler, loudness on the inside
Well, let me say that i've been wanting this mask since i saw one! There was no disappointment when i opened the package. It looks great, has a tight profile, and is pretty flexy. I looked at the manual for about 10 seconds, then switched the lenses (it comes with two) in about 30 seconds. The system worked fabulously. The mask has a visor, a brow shield, and two lenses. A tinted double pane thermal one, and a clear one with anti-fog baked into it. This makes the $76.50 that it costs well worth it. My friend got a profiler and payed $75 for his, and since everyone compares this mask ad a profiler, thats $1.50 for another lense and a visor. Sounds like a good deal to me. Well, this mask has about the same size lense as a profiler, but this mask has a good viewing area. The only thing that i found bad about this mask was the fact that since there are no holes up the side of the mask, your voice has nowhere to dissapate, so the mask can seem loud if you yell. But be a man and get used to it
This mask is well worth the money, and buy it! i give it a 10 for sure
Profiler, Proto, ProFlex, pretty much every mask out there.
i play NPPL so whatever i get is good
read main part
Ok so i saw these goggles when they were first released and i LOVED them. at first i wanted the E-vents bad, but after HB 06 and i tried on both the E-vents and the Avatars i decided to go with the avatars. heres what i think
Pros- LIGHT, Bouncey, GREAT Vision, 2 lenses, SUper easy to change, look awesome, breath well
Cons-Exposed Jaw if you have a bigger head.
Overall i LOVE these goggles. My friend is giveing me some i3s because he really htaes his so ill test those as well, otherwise top notch goggles
=Collapsible carstock (best one IMHO, you can lengthen to brace or shorten for manouverability)
=48cu/3000 psi tank (HPA)
comes with: extra lens, lens-cloth bags, and two visors
None worth mentioning save price.
These are a little pricey, BUT i think its worth it. you do get what you pay for.
it looks great, and its very comfortable, very hard to fog, and cleans very easily. Its also very easy to talk to people, because the vent system around your mouth is desgined to let sound out, but not let paint in, and its also very easy to hear in.
it comes with both smoked and clear lenses, which is great.
An excellent buy. Realize that your mask will be more important than you gun, and this mask will not let you down

Easy To Clean
This is a great mask and I love it. This mask is really easy and fast to clean. The lens on this mask is also Anti-Fog which makes it a lot better. I dont think any other mask can compair to this. If you want a great mask then this is probably the best you can go!
I would say get it without thinking. Trust me, it is a great mask and nothing can be better!

This mask is a huge improvement over by old V-force Armor mask. My friends and I have been impressed with this mask overall. It is high quality and very comfortable, and it just looks great. My only complaints are the minor ones listed above, and I had to look hard to come up with those. I will test the mask on the playing field this weekend.
This is an excellent mask. It would deserve a 9.8 if the scale allowed that, but instead I will round up to ten. More comments once the testing is complete.
i just got this mask 2 days ago and man it looks sweet...I used this mask once and it never fogged up on me... thats what i like to see in a mask..It comes with 2 lenses so thats an added bonus...the only thing that might be bad for some ppl is the price but its a great mask.
This is the best mask i used so far if u want a good mask i suggest u buy this one.!
