Tri-Mold Soft Flex Technology offers various mask flexibility without sacrificing safety or performance. Utilizing a revolutionary process of co-molding, the Dye design team has developed a firm base frame, coupled with a very flexible facemask and patented venting system.
Silicone is out, woven rubber is in. The Invision3 retention strap system needs to be adjusted once and once only. Designed to fit your head and stay that way, like it should. The elasticity of the woven rubber straps will out last the competition.
Unilateral, audibly efficient ear protection, the Invision3 has a unique sound channeling design that offers unobstructed sound quality, providing three-dimensional hearing.

comfort and performance for the player. Tested at twice the current ASTM

Combined with a secure goggle, the patented Multi-Directional Venting drastically reduces re-ventilated fogging. The Multi-Directional Venting also assists you with voice projection.
Adjustable comfort chinstrap to secure goggle during active play.
The Dye i3 Invision 3 Mask is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Very bendy and soft .
Very comfy foam around eyes.
Extremely difficult to change lenses.
Doesn't come with lense that matches your color choice.
I got my I3 for Christmas and was very pleased with the blue color. It was deep and rich. I thought that the blue film covering the lense was actually the lense color... and I think it would have been a better choice than just the clear. I looked over the instructions to change the lense... !!!!! looked hard. I gave up after a half-hour. I'll stick with the clear, till I get a master tech to change it. Nice mask, I got bounces off of it just from reffing. Sadly I also took 16 other hits that day... Oh well, thats the life of a ref.
Go ahead and buy it. It's a good, solid, high-end mask with some good looks to boot. Small profile and very flexy and soft material. Good job Dye... work on that lense change though...

A little expensive, but who cares about the cost?
This is a great mask. It has a chin strap that is comfortable that keeps it from falling off. It has a double lens so that it's extra protective, it's extremely flexible, it doesn't break easy at all, it never fogs, easy to clean, detatchable visor, a lot of good pros use this mask such as Ollie Lang!!! They're about $65 i think now, but i payed $90 for mine, but oh well.
It's worth it all the way. It's cheaper than V-Force masks(the good ones), and better. An E-Vent is probably the only thing better, but not by much. A 9, because an E-Vent would be the only mask getting a ten from me, partly because i love empire!
Price ( This Probably Costs Less Than 1/8 It's Price To Make In China)
This is a great mask. I have played two games with it so far, and have got 3 bounces off of the mask. The woven rubber that this mask is made out of makes it very light-wheight, but still very protective at the same time. The foam does work the way it is supposed to to wick sweat away from my face. This mask gives me a very low profile when i'm playing woodsball also. The special design of the vents really does work the way it says and lets my team mates understand me perfectly when i'm speaking. I think it is also worth it to mention that there are some accessories for this mask ( dye turbine fan, dye game timer) but I have not used any of those accessories yet so I do not know how good they will prove.
This is a really good mask and I would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to buy a new mask for paintball.
To start the mask was expensive but now its coming down in price which is always a good thing. Some people think that with Dye you are paying for the name, well yes, but also the excellent build and quality of their products.
1. The mask is so soft but strong, it gives good bounces which is always handy.
2. The lens are huge, good quality thermal, plenty of choice and great vision. Its like your not wearing a mask, unless you install the visor which elimates glare but you an just as easily buy a tinted lens and have the full view.
3. The looks are great, nothing feels better than walking on the field looking good, it makes you look pro and gives you the edge. The colours are great to match your team or your gun.
4. The fit is so good, full padding its really comfortable and doesnt slip at all. There is even a padded chin strap. The handy thing is the head strap needs only to be adjusted once... which is great!
5. The size, its small but thats low profile for you i guess, its also adjustable to fit closer to your face. as long as you dont run round the field screaming alot (and by the way the voice projection vents are brilliant, so there is little need to scream) but at first I was worried about being hit in the chin, its a close fit but comfortable.
6. The box, I know this doesnt really have anything to do with it but the box it comes in is good looking and you get a black fabric bag to store yoru mask in... its so cool... really really really good... lol
Overall this is a really good product... it may be expensive but its worth it.
Id say 10 because its a lil small like.. but you get used to it and its all good from there.
I have used a Proto switch EL, which is not nearly as good as my new I3.
Ihave a black ion with a 72/3000 psi pure energy tank and a black egg with a Y board.
Padding, thermal lens, flexible material, great looks
A bit pricey, but its worth every penny.
I have only had my I3 for a short time, but I love it already. I purchased a yellow tinted lens which i also love. I have played with the mask twice and it has never even come close to fogging. This is the most comfortable mask I have ever worn, and the coolest looking mask I have ever seen.
This mask is something you cant go wrong with, looks great, very comfortable, and most importantly it doesn't fog(even on humid days).
Looking good, soft, protection, nice material, small
Heavy, price, comfort, cleaning
Mask is a bit heavy, when i put it on my face it does too much pressure on my face, don't feel comfortable and is hot in there, not light and breathable like other masks, it's a pain to clean, i still didn't menage to remove one lence from another (i have a drops of water stuck ed in there) because i'm afraid a i will broke it, and it is expencive.
But as much it was hot in there, it never fogged, not by a little, and im really not afraid of taking hit directly in my lenses beacouse it is very durable and made of fine materials, don't have to be afraid, very safe, have alot of soft aeras in there, little to much for me, so much that it isn't comfortable for me, hot, but that may be just me because i have a big broken nose :) And it is small, i have a feel that i won't get hit in a mask, and it seems to have a good field of vision, but not too good.
I don't understand why all of you say it is perfect and have none weakness? (Nothing is perfect) Maybe because it is dye and most expensive mask? And you spend allot of money and don't want to say it is not good. I buy it because i saw a lot of teams have invizion, and it is very expensive, and that means that it is best. I was wrong, for me it isn't the best, maybe for someone it is, but i saw allot of pro teams wearing another cheaper masks, so il try to find another that fits me best

I've been playing with the Tippmann mask that comes with the starter kit. That mask tends to fog pretty easy for me. When I was at the local paintball shop they had some of the 45 dollar masks that had thermal lens and stuff, but I saw the invision for $80 and I called a friend. He sent me here. I read the first page or 2 of reviews, and saw a lot of "Try and Fog this Mask."
Well It didn't take me long to fog it. The first 15 Min's or so was great. It fits great, its comfortable, even bounced a shot. Then it fogged. The whole reason I purchased the mask was to stop the fogging.
Was it worth the 80 bucks for me...No not really. All that was really achieved was something that fits nicer, not clearer.
Try one before you by it. Mine fogged maybe yours wont!
An Autococker equipped with: One (1) DYE Ultralight barrel, One (1) 1.10 model E2 frame, One (1) KAPP front block (excluding the three-way of course), One (1) custom body, One (1) Halo B w/ Rip Drive, One (1) Gen-X Regulator
Take it from them: http://www.dyeprecision.com/productsmain.asp
Like everything from DYE, it's slightly overpriced.
The mask is phenomenal. It's amazingly comfortable, and won't break-down or fog over during hard play. It's sleek profile is extremely efficient. It isn't overly bulky, but yet still offers amazing protection to the user. It also looks amazing, making it a must for those of you trying to stand out in a crowd.
Besides the fact that it's slightly over-priced, there's nothing wrong with this mask. A must have for any player needing to play great while looking good doing it.

I personly like the profiler better. The lens is really hard to put in and take out and paint gets in the tiny cracks that are near impossible to clean. It is too expernsive for a begginers mask, but if you can find it for a good deal like I did, get it.
