Review: +Sight+
The lens of this mask provide a great field of vision and are perfectly clear to allow maximum sight, its nearly as if you could see as well as you can without them on.

+Looks+
Pretty good looking if you ask me, they are similar to the old ones but the color was reversed, where the black would be now their is the color that would be in the venting of the mask. Very sleek design and the material is still sturdy, it is like a polymerish kind of rubber that wont break but if dropped will bounce instead of hitting the lens.

+Padding+
It is great! The Padding inside of the I3 are very well constructed, I am not sure what its made out of but i believe their are about 3 layers for great comfort and protection, their is this padding around the ears and lens area.

+Ventilation and Fog+
Simply Amazing. The breathablity on the I3 is great as it has little holes everywhere. Their are about 8 big sections of venting on the front, small holes right below the ear area, and more everywhere else such as around the lens. I have even tried to fog it up breathing heavy and it just wont fog.

+Protection+
Follow the Rules of Play and Wear this Mask and You wont Get hurt.

-Cleaning-
The process of cleaning it can be very difficult for many, including myself. Then again this might be very easy for some to do so this all pretty much depends on the person.

-Price-
When I bought these they are $85, Now the price is $65 (Correct me if im wrong) Because of the new Proto Axis. You can buy both and get the same performance but I personally would get the Axis as it is VERY easy to clean but now you have to pay $85 for those. So it all depends on your budget.

-Moisture-
Even though the mask does not fog from heavy or warm breathing, their is still a problem with fogging if you happen to sweat alot. The sweat moves into the padding then gets trapped and fogs itself up, so i recommend wearing a bandanna or a hat when using the mask.

Well...Its Been about 4 months since I wrote this review and the mask is still holding pretty strong....sort of.
First Problem Was My Own Fault Of Putting My Mask On To Quick and Being Careless and Stuff. The Foam on the Frame Decided To Start To Peel Off, But This is Due To My Own Sweat, and Pulling against my face when putting on and removing the Mask. I tried to Glue it on about 3 Times But That was a Total No-Go. So I Had to spend 19 Bucks For The Frame
Next Was Right After Frame problem...The Lens. Ohhh boy was i glad they were theyre though, someone bunkered me and got about 3 right in my face. Anddd What Do Ya No.. A big crack right in the middle. So Thats another $20.
The Mask is still working and everything so i still fully recommend you buy it.
Conclusion: The Dye I3 Invision Is a Great Mask Overall and Backed Up by a Great Company. I Highly Recommend this Mask with its New Price but If you Find Cleaning a Mask to be Trouble Some I Would Get a Axis. Hope I Helped.
