Review: Ok this mask is amazing. Combing the weight with the padding that touches your face, you find it really hard to believe you are actually wearing it.

When i first used it at Domination it coped really well during most of the day. The weather was slightly cold but not too bad and didnt affect my marker or the paint i fired. I found out eventually that this mask does not like ONE type of paint that i did encounter and that is SPANK which is very hard (makes spec ops look like tear drops) and im pretty sure some people were firing hot. Anyway the SPANK hated the I3 Pro and the I3 Pro hated the SPANK as it took many hits from it and......well whenever i got hit by the stuff it threw me head in the opposite direction a few inches but the I3's never showed any sign of damage after the matches apart from being soaked in paint spray.

Cleaning these can be a task but if you do what i did and put them under the shower for a bit they came out mint condition.

I got no echo from this mask, team mates a good 40 yards away heard me loud and clear.
Conclusion: Very good mask, its a dye so you don't have to worry about quality issues. The one thing they could do is sort out the lenses becuase they are difficult to remove.
