Review: I got this mask about six months ago. I had been watching it in my local store and waiting for it to go on sale. Up until this time I had been using a Jt mask. It was comfertable but rather large. Lense changing on that mask was a pain as well (bloody fingers come to mind). The Invision is better for several reasons.

Small Size: I have a rather small head, so I guess this only matters with opinion. But I like having a mask that feels like it fits correctly.

Comfert: I love the way this mask feels. The ear padds are great, the nose part also feels really good. Comfert is one of the main things I look at when looking for a mask so this really helped my desicion to buy the Invison.

Dosent Fog Up: I dont think there is anything more annoying in paintball (though I may be wrong) than a mask fogging up in the middle of a game. The thermal lense in this mask works reallt well. It has only fogged up one time (and hardly at all that time). Plus it was a very humid day that day, everyone theres mask kept fogging up.

Looks Great: Definatly a matter of opinion, but I love the way this mask looks (I have a blue one by the way). I actually feel this way about most Dye products, but this is my favriote of their products (look wise).

Field of Vision: One other thing about this mask that makes it good is its field of vision. It lets me see a bit further than the other masks ive used (at the edges ).

Disadvantages:

Lense changing: I have never actually had to change a lense on this mask, but I imagine, based on what I've heard and seen on the mask itself, that lens changing is diffucult. I will update this review when i've actually had to change a lense.

Cleaning: This mask is a bit harder to clean that other masks i've owned. I found it to be diffucult to clean with a q tip. I ended up using some tissue to clean the paint out of this, it took a little while. (of corse, another way to avoid cleaning would be to avoid getting hit).
Conclusion: Get it. You wont regret it, this is an excelent mask. Defanatly worth the money. Id give it a nine and a half so I guess ill have to give it a nine.(id give it a ten, but no product is completly perfect).
