Review: I got this mask because of the price. I saw that they're being sold for $60 (original: $81).

When you first put it on, its one of the most comfortable masks you'll ever try. The foam morphs perfectly to your face. The ears are well padded and protected. The mask also has the best voice trajectory range and clarity then any other mask, THE BEST. Take this situation, I was playing the frontman and at the break, 3 of our 5 guys were out. The only other guy on our team was someone playing the back corner. When you're in an inflatable bunker and you're yelling while five guns are pointed at you and shooting 20 BPS at you, and your teammate in the back corner can still hear your voice clearly, that's incredible.

The Invision is the one of the lightest masks out there. It weight just as much as a shoe. (I know it sounds random but it's the only thing i can think of that everyone has unless you live in Africa, and in that case, you shouldn't have the money to play paintball.)

The looks on the Invision are impressive. It has a state of the art modern design that intimidates opponents.

As for the lenses. The company says that you have a 200 degree field of vision, not true. I would say more like a 120 degree which is normal. Nothing I would consider a weakness. If you look at the reviews with lower scores, they say that it fogs up a ton. It'll only fog up if you snort and breath like a wildebeest. I've played around 30 games since I got this, it has never come even close to fogging. All those stories about how they couldn't see a thing, they're probably lies told by people who want to give a popular mask a low score just because they don't have one.

The only weakness of the Invision is your chin. If you have a big/long face like I do, then your chin will most likely peek out of the mask a little. It probably just because of my big head. But nothing to give the mask a rating of 1 or 2.
Conclusion: I recommend buying this mask. Its made by DYE, the best paintball company in the business. If you have $60, then go go ahead and buy it (People say its expensive but only cause they don't know how to shop for the best price) If you don't have the $60 then I'd recommend buying the Proto Switch E.L ($30). Almost the same quality and made by Proto, which is owned by Dye.
