Try them both on, and go with whatever is more comfortable. They're both solid masks.

My i4s have had the fabric on the outside of the ears peel a ton, and most of the foam has been reglued several times. It seems that paint just murders what ever kind of glue dye uses or something like that. I haven't had much experience with profits, but im trying to decide between a profit and events for my next mask... probably events.

Bitches and guns, this is every man's dream. I don't want to go home, where I'm just an ordinary human being...

Heres our take on the Slys



For me, the Slys work best. Simply because when I put the I4's on..about 25% of my face is still exposed. I4's are very very small "no nonsense" goggles. Everything you need is there..but they are made for folks with a smaller frame.

Masks are a highly individule thing.

You really must try them on to find out which is better for you. Comfort and protection are primary factors in a mask.
The one time I bought a mask without trying it on...I got shot in the earlobe the first time out cause the ear protection just did not work with my head. I vowed never to do that again.

I4's do not cover my lower jawline...from just below my ear to my chin has slight exposure that I will not be shot in. So I will not wear them.
The Profit...I found it to be a run of the mill mask. There is nothing truely special about it. I like the fit, feel and weight of my Avatar better. Plus...I really like visors.

Yeah, as Krazy said...masks are up to the wearer. We can recommend all we want, but it comes down to personal feel and comfort. Id really suggest finding a PB store near you and try on a bunch of masks. Only then will you know which one fits you the best.
