Hi, I currently own a pair of dye i4s which are great, low profile, comfy and everything. But i have a problem with them. In the rain they are useless due to not having a peak, and just vents at the top, so water runs straight into the inside of the lens. Also, i find that they aren't the best for shouting in, however the main problem is the rain.. i was thinking of getting e-flexes. Does anyone know if they will be any better or if there are any better goggles?
Cheers

I use tape on the top vents on rainy days.

I also find the i4's very comfy, tried a pair of e-flexes on, just didnt get on with them.

Haven't tried the flex's but I have some I4's on the way currently.

Tried profits, savephace, old JT's....couldn't get on with them. I4's on the other hand...loved them when i had the chance to try them on.

Is there not the ability to buy rain covers for the I4's like you can for profits?...would be handy,

I've got I3s, e flex and e vent Avatars.
Did have i4s but found them too small felt a bit exposed in them,so sold them.
The e flex are great,no steaming up,lens is a doddle to change,comfy don't slip nice and soft.
Fitted the peak off the e vents.
So as its been said before try a few on and see if the fitt your face.

May be worth trying some grillz too.
They are damn comfy, come with peaks etc and the bet bit : bloody cheap.
I got some for £50 new ;) Although you will be paying more for ltd edition etc...

Just bought some a new E-Flex with a pal from my team, I love them, comfy, great for communication etc but he sold his literally the next day for some I4's because the Flex's are actually quite big.

As bojjob said, check some grillz!

I would also recommend grillz. I haven't even worn them on the field yet and I'm impressed. Comes with a peak, great vision, very comfy and it literally took me a minute to figure out how to take the mask apart. Very simple.

baseball cap is normally my method.

Annoying a rain cover like the profits one isn't available for them though. especially with the popularity of the i4's.

good point mate... although it would ruin the look of the I4s :p
