Review: Fits very comfortably, tight snug fit, so the mask won't wobble around when you are snap shooting around bunkers or trees. The foam is very high quality, so it is very comfortable around your eyes and head. Lens is pretty large, so you get a good field of vision. It is a dye product, so it is built with pretty good components and it looks stylish.

For sure the shape of the mask is kind of annoying, its kind of low profile so your chin will pop out when you talk or yell, not to mention your innocent little adams apple that will get blown to death by paintballs. But yeah, I haven't had a problem with that yet. The lens start to fog after you use them for awhile - after a few months.

From the front you look like a teenage mutant ninja turtle, with the small head and the big chin/mouth area. Its kind of funny, but from the side it looks pretty sweet. It is completely soft and rubberized, so there aren't any hard components of the mask like you would find on a VForce ProVantage, the whole mask is literally like the Flex part on a JT Flex (not the lens and fram part - that is hard).
Conclusion: Overall, it is a pretty good mask - definately not worth $70 though, I got mine for free from a friend who didn't want it anymore. So yeah if you can get one for under $30 get it. If you have $70 to spend on a mask get a VForce Profiler - so much better design, not to mention the lenses are INEXPENSIVE to buy (half of what Invision lenses cost). Hopefully the new 2006 design for the Dye Invision will be alot better and fix these problems.

The Bad Point summary: Lenses are hard to get out, i hurt my fingers doing this (but this is tolerable). Lens are crappy and start to fog after a few months use (tolerable, just get a new lens). You look like a teenage mutant ninja turtle from the front (its ok, just have your friends call you Michaelangelo). Your adams apple will hate you (its ok, what has your adams apple done for you lately?... nothing!).

If you can deal with those things above, then get yourself a Invision - otherwise for $70 get a VForce Profiler - its good mask with the Same Strengths as a Dye Invision, but without the Negatives. So yeah - thats basically how you decide.
