Where to buy a ESS Profile

Hey every one
First off I just want to get it out of the way that, I have made plans to get Age verified this upcoming 26th of July. But I understand if you people want to wait till it's been confirmed.

Any ways I have been doing a little bit of research and I have decided that for my first pair of goggles are going to be a pair of

ESS Profile Airsoft w/Cortex Clip Black
http://www.airsoftextreme.com/store/...oducts_id=4595

I watched a review of them being done by Doctor Airsoft and I like how they have the extra advantage of having a nose guard along with the lens.
But that thing is, that the only place so far that I could find that sells them is an American website.

An I like to fine a Canadian dealer that sells this item.

Also on another note but along that same line, I'm thinking of pairing the Goggles with a

A.C.M. Iron Face protector - BLACK
http://www.torontoairsoft.com/produc...id_product=498

for the lower half of my face.
An I was wondering what people thoughts are on pairing up these two items.

I know they both have nose guards, and there might be a problem there, but I think that it might not be a huge problem.

Again, any thoughts are welcome as I want to get it right the first time.

thanks for your time
KwGeek

If you're going to be using the face mask, get a pair of ESS that doesn't have a nose cover. They'll fit together a lot better.

Dave's Surplus carries the Revision Eyewear "Desert Locust", which is a ESS NVG made under contract. It's also current issue for CF overseas;

Damn good price actually.

Also, face masks are for girls; that is all.

@Kokanee

You might think that face masks are for girls, But dental work is expensive, so for me the choice is quite clear.

I always think bare faces are for idiots. But maybe that's just because I'm a noob and nowhere good enough to never get shot. Also, I breathe through my mouth so I can't keep it closed. =\

Just FYI if you plan on playing at Flag Raiders, you will need PAINTBALL APPROVED goggles. No ESS, Oakley, Tactical Ballistic, Bolle, etc. Just saying cause you live in Kitchener. And most games in Kitchener are hosted at Flag Raiders.

Just my 0.2

extremely hot, hard to breath and will aid in fogging since the holes are so small and limited. if it's a particular look, go for it. if it's for protection, look at the mesh half masks.

Okay Good point, I do plan on playing at the flag raiders airsoft games once I have my own gear.

An since they only allow PAINTBALL APPROVED goggles can any one suggest a good set of set of goggles that are good for both paintball and airsoft.

Or even better yet, maybe a link to any threads that cover the topic of paintball goggles that are good for airsoft as well.

Pair of JT's without the rest of the mask.. That's pretty much what everyone runs.

Some of us are too "asian" to grow a beard... or facial hair, for that matter.

I've got a pair of flex 8's. Not that I'm running the mask, but the goggles are really comfy. Just make sure you get thermal lenses as it helps prevent fogging.

Get the ESS Profiles for cheap on ebay and buy lenses from a reputable CDN seller (seals action gear, maybe?)

Where can I go for additional information on this subject?
