Empire E-vent paintball goggle Black
The soft faceplate of the “top model” is re-enforced by a flexible
yet strong mouth guard which allows the front of the mask to flex on
impact, but stops full paintballs from pushing through or lifting it up,
and thus protects your lips and mouth.
These goggles have a special venting system designed to work
functionally with the way you breathe. The mouth vents are located so
you breathe and shout through the vents rather than into a large mass of
plastic or rubber as with other goggle systems. As your breath hits the
front of the mask, it either exits directly or is deflected sideways
There are specially shaped vents which take the deflected breath and
move it out from the face plate. These specially shaped vents project
your voice and warm breathe out to the sides, and not up into the
goggle. As your breathing warms the front of the mask, it heats up dry
air in the “demist guide”. This demist guide is specially designed to
prevent hot moist air from your breath getting through vents in the
bottom of the goggle. Instead, the heat is transferred to dry air in the
demist guide making it rise and move up across the lens of the goggle.
As this air rises, it draws in fresh, dryer air from the back and sides
of the goggle. This allows you to have a flow of air across the lens to
help avoid fogging, while ensuring no moist air gets from your breath
into the lens area. Side baffles in the faceplate prevent warm moist air
from moving up into the goggle so your voice and hot air is expelled in
the direction you want it to… out through the mask.
The ear pieces are designed to cup around your ears so your ears can
sit in a very natural position and your hearing with the goggle on is
just like it was without the goggle.
We didn’t put excessive cosmetic venting into the mask like many
other companies do, because it wasn’t needed due to the advanced design
and to keep the smooth, clean lines that make paint more likely to
glance off the goggle and to make it easier to clean when paint does get
onto the goggle.
