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.
I have used a helmet that comes with the pmi pirahnna paintball gun and there is just noway to compare.
I wield an x7 phenom and I haven't attached any accesories to it.
Very fog resistent
Soft rubber for very little ball-break
No protection for top of head or rear
Once I brought this home I did 3 laps around my yard at full tilt with all of my paintball gear on (Pants, shirt, sweater, overcoat, gloves, boots, tac vest, and gun). I was starting to break a sweat and by this time I would've had to spit on my previous mask's lens to get rid of the fog.
That next weekend I went paintballing with some of my friends in the woods and the same occured then to. Absolutley no fog-up and it gives me a tactical advantage that my other mask could not.
Just make sure that you face the opposition as this mask has no protection for the top or rear.
I would recommend this to all paintballers who play any gametype because it is an excellent piece of kit to your arsenal.
I won these in a rafle at a scenario game about six months ago. I had been using the mask that came with my 98 custom and it was terrible. That fogged up within minutes of me putting it on. The avatar however still has yet to really fog up on me. I've worn these for around an hour at a time without serious problems. Be careful when cleaning them though. I was cleaning all my stuff after an 8 hour scenario game and had a bucket of water on the ground next to me. My little brother thought it would be funny to throw my lens into the bucket. There was actually water inside the lens for a few days. Other than that, it's a freat mask.
This is a great mask for anyone really. I can't really say if it's worth the money since I got it free but, I would have gladly paid for it.

Inexpensive compared to the Empire E-Vents
I just recently purchaced an Invert avatar mask from my local fields pro shop. this mask is a good one for anyone who wants a good looking, good overall mask, for a decent price. I find the Avatar is abetter idea for people to buy than the Empire E-Vents simply because it is nearly the same mask ecxcept it is much less expensive.
In conclusion i give the Invert avatar a 10 out of 10 because it is an affordable mask for any player. and it looks pretty sick if you ask me.
No Soft Ears
This is basically the Empire E-vents, only with no soft ears. The goggles are great, mine have only fogged up when its been raining. And if you have a bigger head, like me, they fit great and offer full face coverage, unlike the I4's. The only thing you need to do with these is be careful not to lose the small plastic stoppers that keep the strap from moving and the lens from falling off. Other than that, like any goggles, be ready to change your lens about every 4-6 months.
Great goggles, work amazing, comfortable, and excellent price.

Is a little Big on the Head
I got this mask a little over 3 weeks ago and I got to tell you its a big upgrade from my JT mask that I have been using.
It is light, Easy to clean, has a nic low profile and doesn't get too hot on the inside. It has nice venting, hence the name events and it fits snug when you tighten it to your liking. I recommend you wear a backwards hat though if you have a smaller head because it may not fit you properly or it will slide down the odd time. For me though, it hasn't really been an issue
It has a nice flex to it so balls can often bounce when they hit your mask. It may be a pain to clean inside all of the little vents and crevaces but if you take the whole thing apart and rinse it/ hose it off you should be fine.
If you were to upgrade this mask, the only thing I suggest you change is the lens. Although it already has a beautiful lens, a thermal or tinted lens would make it easier to play in sunny areas or fields. It does come with an extra visor attatchment and neck protector piece but I think they make the mask look worse and it takes away from the sleek design and profile of it.
I like how it comes with a nice silk bag to hold the mask in. it makes you feel like the mask is very prestigious and worth something which obviously it is.
I give it a nine because nothing is perfect. it also is a little pricey but nothing too much that you have to complain about. Overall it is a must buy. You can go and spend all of your money on Dye I4's and other expensive masks but in my opinion this will give you everything you need to step up your game that much more. So stop sitting around reading this review. Get out there and buy a pair!!! :)

Kind of small parts when disassembling
For a $70 mask, this is definately one of the better ones you can get.
I also live in Texas (HOT) and i sweat alot, These babies havent fogged up on me yet.
the ventilation seems pretty good, whenever theres a nice little breeze, i can feel it going through the mask.
The only trouble i found was when disassembling the mask some of the parts are kind of small, but be careful and you wont loose them hopefully.
The Avatar does NOT have the lowest profile, so it can be difficult to sight down your marker if you have a stock on.
With the BT Edition Camo, this is an awesome mask for woodsball or tournament play.
Great protection, view and breathability! Its the perfect mask for $70

Easy To Change Lens
Fogs up in woodsball (not much tho)
Fogs up in rain
I bought these goggles a few weeks ago hoping to replace my proflex's cuz they were starting to go. my friends told me these were good goggles to get, and they are, they perform great and look awesome
the only weakness i find is, they will fog up a little if your a woodsball player because you need to be moving around alot for them to air out, and they fog up in the rain, other than that, they are great, comfortable, and you'll never get that feeling where you think they might fall off.
I recommend this product to anyone looking for a great mask for a fair price, I got mine for about $80 and they just work great
Really bad echo
muffles your voice so its hard for others to hear you
Ok so i got this mask for christmas last year and at first i was very satisfied with it playing indoors at the local speed ball field.The only problem i was having was no one could hear me because the mask muffles your voice and i couldnt hear any1 due to the really loud echo of my voice in the mask. Then i switched to outdoor play for the summer this is when i expierienced problems with the foam. the foam on the mask when drenched in sweat will start to peel away from the mask and it cannot be replaced so you have to superglue it in place but this is just a temporary solution because it starts to peel away when it gets drenched again.
All in all a good mask but im not sure how long theyll last for the amount of money you sppend on them and the echo is really annoying

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.
