This is a fan made for the Dye Invision to reduce fog on the lens. Like a personal ventilation system for your Invision, the Turbine Fan technology is a culmination of Dye's design efforts for perfect goggle circulation.
Turbo 9 accelerator blade which yields higher air flow volume while operating at a lower RPM resulting in quieter operation and extended battery life
Two speed operation ensures that you get the best results under any condition
High impact aircraft quality plastic resists breakage from close range shots
Foggy lenses are a thing of the past with the low profile Turbine Fan
Can be worn with or without a visor
Takes one AA battery (Included)
Installs in seconds
The Dye Invision Turbine Fan is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

I throughly enjoy this product I recently purchased this fan from a Paintball Shop for only $5 bucks (Not Even Kidding) I bought two one for my I3 Pro and one for my back up mask my Invision. I would have spent the 50 bucks on this fan. I play alot of woodsball and i do alot of running. So the first thing to happen is my mask foggs up. I recently started getting back into paintball about 6 months to a year ago. I was useing one of my friends masks. About ten minutes into the game my mask foggs up. I could barely see. That day I decided to buy a quality mask and a good fan. And that is exacly what this is a good quality product.
Pros: Good fan, Works well, 2 speeds.
Cons: The only thing I would change on this fan is a higher fan setting and the price. (luckly i got a sweat deal on mine)
Yes Highly Recommend worth the money!! This product does exacly what is is designed to do.

The said product works to expectations, but the noise is still there. It is much much quieter than the JT fan i heard...the fit can be a little tough, but if the lense is in right, the fan will fit. I would also say do not cut your mask to try to make it fit, it will fit regardless...work with it.
This fan stops all fogging when i use it.... i love the fact that it has a low and high setting the low is good if you are leaving it on the whole game the high is good if you turn on the mask only when you have fog, with other masks i always have a bit of fog with this on the mask is as clear when i walk off the field as when i came on
This mask is not loud.... espiecially on low, and like i said if you find it loud just turn it on when you have fog... I have walked off the field and not relised the fan was on for a good while, trust me your teammates arent likly to hear this
If you are having any trouble with your mask fogging up... and you have tried replacing the lens buy this, and you wont hav any problems its that simple.
Maybe the noise but it did not bother my play. Kind of expensive.
I have post-poned purchasing this fan because of all the bad reviews I have been reading but finally broke down and bought one. The fan is so small you dont even realize it is on your mask until you turn it on. In low speed, there is a small hum but I could still hear everyone around and in front of me during games. when I first turned it on, it took about 30 seconds to clear my lense so from then on I just turned it on before the start of each game. what a difference this fan makes. had no problem installing it or having the fan blades hit the mask and cause them not to turn. My only complaint is that I should have bought this several months ago when the weather was scorching hot and had major fogging problems with my mask.
I highly recommend this option on everyones invision mask if you can afford it. There is nothing worse than not being able to see.
The fan is very useful if you wear glasses . It takes care of any fog problem in about 5 seconds. One problem that I noticed was that if you get shot directly on it, it will knock the battery lose causing it to not function. I had to modify the mask a little by cutting room for the fan blades because they would hit the top of the mask and make a racket.
I had no problem with the fit of the fan. It looks good and 50 bucks is not bad seeing it is from DYE. It has 2 speeds LOUD and LOUDER. I was disapointed because I bought the Mask because it was said to be quiet, but was louder then the JT fan. I live in Florida and I have to have a fan I am still waiting for someone 2 come out with a fan that is really quiet.
If you like the DYE mask and need a fan it is the only one made as of now, but dont buy the mask because you think the fan will be quieter then your JT mask.

Adds to the style of the mask. Gets the job done.
LOUD, fan blades hit the mask(see below).
First let me say that this fan gets the job done. It does get the fog out of the mask. If you take the fan out of the box and install it as DYE suggests, then the fan blades hit the mask and won't turn. You can lift up on the fan a bit, but on my mask it just falls back into place and the blades won't turn. I fixed this by putting a penny under the fan. Place the penny just to the right of center so it doesn't hit the fan blades. A dime would work better (maybe not it's thinner), but I'm cheap. Now the fan blades won't touch the mask at all and it works great.
This fan is very LOUD. I would only turn it on if your mask starts to fog up because I can barely hear my teammates as it is. The fan is even louder than the fan on my PC. I'm not sure why DYE charges so much for such a loud fan. I do recommend this product, but I hope they improve on the noise and fit of the fan to the mask.
It's a buy because it gets the job done and you can't win if you can't see. It's a 9 for loudness and poor fit to the mask.
Reduces fog, looks sleek, and quieter than competition.
Cost and fan noise.
I still get fog even with the fan on high in extreme weather situations, albeit it is far less frequent now. Not sure why DYE says it is quiet, because you can definitely hear it when it's on, but it definitely produces less noise than the JT Vortex fan.
In any event, the fitment is really good...although if you push the fan too hard onto the mask the fan rubs up against it and stops working (just like another reviewer mentioned, but you can fix that by pushing the fan in more).
All in all, despite it's high cost, I will say it does a decent job. I am a heavy sweater and have problems when playing indoors or playing outside during those humid months. The JT Vortex mask did little to nothing, where as the DYE Turbine definitely does clear things up. The fan noise is such where you want to have it off once the goggles are de-fogged...and I don't think was DYE's intention to leave it on permanently, because I had a very hard time hearing my back players when I left the fan on.
All in all I recommend this product...but it definitely can be improved upon (and I hope it does).
