I would say invision because it looks better. Its all personal preference though. As long as its antifog its good.

seems like that they are equal in pretty much every field(vision, ventilation, anti-fog), so to me, it's all depends on looks. the dye foam used in the invision is comfy though. drawback on the invision: difficult to change lenses. i havent used the proteus, so im not gonna bash it.

lets do a little chart on what i know about them
price-Proteus 50 Invision- 75
comfort- Proteus i like better
FOV- equal
fogging-equal
changing lense- invision im guessing, cuz the proteus is pretty hard ot change
looks- i like the invision a little better, but its all personal preference
bounces- proteus has soft bottom and visor

i would say Invision all the way, its what i have and im very satisfied with it, mine neverfogs up, and works very well and serves its purpose as a mask. only thing is the lens is a pain to get off (i switched up the lens to match the color, i have a red dye invision with a red to smoke fade lens) Overall i just think its agreat mask, although if you concerned about protecting you neck it does provide as much protection as other masks, or mine doesnt anyway, its a bit smaller than other masks, but anyway its a great mask, and in my opinion its not to difficult to clean

I actually own both. A blue DYE Invision and a clear JT Proteus.

Comfort= Invision is the winner, the Protues is also comfortable but slips down my face a little (I wear both masks without any headgear)

Cosmetic Looks= Proteus is the winner but Invision looks pretty sexy too

Fog resistance= It's a tie, they both win, nice fog protection

Price= It's a tie, they are both the same in price (at least in Canada the two masks are the same price)

Profile/Target zone= Invision is the winner, still the Proteus is the winner

CoNcLuSiOn= Pick which ever mask tickles your pickle.

I use an invision and i can say it is well ventalated meaning nice and cool inside your mask, and it has very nice looks.

A proteus on the other hand doesnt score in the looks section but, with it you can a on a fan. and much more and this mak has more features with it to.

Just check it out at JTusa.com for more information.

Protues unless you happen to be a Dye freak. It's cheaper @ $50 from most places.
