Review: My profiler was at the end of its days, so I bought the Dye Invision from a friend for $30 to replace it. To help you make a decision of you are planning on buying this mask, I'll break this review down into several categories.

1) Comfort:
This mask is incredibly comfortable. The triple layer foam makes a really nice feel on the face, and I have to say that I will never buy a mask without ear pieces again. When I first got the mask I wore it around my house all day to get used to it. After about an hour I forgot the mask was there and tried to eat a chip.

2) Vision:
The horizontal vision is about the same as on the V-Force profiler. It extends past the peripheral vision and you can just barely see the frame when looking all the way to either side. Vertical vision is decent. The profiler is slightly better in this department.

3) Looks:
Sweet. The fade lens looks so awesome, and the clear is great too. The venting is stylish.

4) Len Changing:
This is the only major shortfall in the invision goggle system. It takes a good twenty minutes to get the lens out the first time you try it, and it's murder on your thumbs. I practiced switching lenses for a while and I can do it in about five minutes now, but the JT Axiom (looks like a piece but lens is easy to replace), the proto switch, and the entire v-force line are all much easier in the lens removing department.

5) Protection:
The invision lacks about a centimeter on the lower jaw area. When yelling, my chin sticks out. Oh well. Have I been hit there? You bet. Does it hurt? not really. Have I been hit in the mouth before? Yes. With this mask? no. The invision is not the only mask that allows your neck to be hit and your chin to be hit. Get a grip and pick up a head shield if you're so worried about a hit. This mask has a tight profile, and the small size reduces weight and gives more freedom
Conclusion: Fantastic. Buy it (especially if you can find a great price like me)
9 out of 10
