The DYE Invision System offers mask-vent color combination choices that have never been offered before. Invision Goggle Systems are available in a variety of venting, goggle frame and lens color compositions. If you want to truly express yourself or your team, you can do it in style with the DYE Invision System. The DYE Invision System is sold standard with a thermal clear lens, visor and goggle bag.
The Dye Invision Mask is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I have used this mask for a while now and I love it! The things I dont like about it though is that it is a bit small. In my last tourney I was calling to my team mates and got shot in the chin. not nice lol.
It is very comfy!
It is thermal so it does not fog up very easily which is a nice feature.....
They look soooooo coooollll.
They are not fun to clean! lots of small places to get paint out of and as it is thermal you cant just soak it in water :(
Nice to play in though. :)
Nice mask overall if you have the time to clean it. Watch your chin! lol
Looks, low profile, lots of colors to choose from, nice fit
Its very low profile so big headed people beware.
i am going to make an uneducated guess and say that if you have a smaller head and or a lot of hair the mask can fog but if you have a bigger head then maybe it wont fog on you then. it hasent fogged up on me yet. maybe humidity or whatever, lets just say maybe weather has something to do with the masks tendency to fog and maybe you just have to be too big for the mask for it to breath properly. i dont know and many people will say that it is only good for looking at and cr@p to use realisticly and others (me) think its fine. i say if you are thinking about getting this mask then ask around your field. ask the players if it fogs, ask how to clean it, ask how to anything :-D. i would never buy a piece of equipment just because of its average rating and you souldnt too.
i like the mask and if you are woried about getting hit by a ball in the neck wear a neck protector and if you are woried about eating paint then get out of paint ball. everyone will have their taste. relax, its non toxic anyways what are you worried about? lol. DONT GET TEH MASK UNTILL YOU ASK ABOUT IT WHERE YOU PLAY. i give it a 9 because its not perfect but its damn near perfect
-Very well ventilated
-Very easy to communicate
-Easy to hear other people
This is by far the best mask! It never fogs, It catches sweat, its very comfortable, easy to hear and communicate with other teammates. Ive heard alot of people complain about this mask well i dont agree with any of them this mask is awesome to me and i no about 10 other people who have it and love it.
Awesome mask nothing wrong with it, comes in cool colors i have no complaints only positive things.
May expose more face than one would like.
Changing lenses can be a test!
#1. The mask fits perfect right out the box. Not only did it have a great fit, the straps included with the invision are quality straps that don't allow slipping, insuring a constant fit. That alone was a great plus.
#2. Perhaps this is more of an opinion than and actual fact, but the lens was very sharp, and clear. Even after several games it has retained its clearness. I am not sure if all masks come with a lens as clear as invision but, my Jt Proflex wasn't as clear.
#3. Second if the overall feel of the product. This may go back some towards the straps, but the mask has a great feel to the face when worn correctly. I am sure this is the case again with most masks. Yet I have to say that the invision has a snug, yet comfortable fit to the face.
#4. More of an secondary category is the ability to customize your mask as you see fit. I was well pleased with the selection of colors, lenses, frames, face masks, and other extras that can be purchased to give your mask its own personality. The game timer, and fan, being two of the extra goodies I found very interesting.
#5. The only problem if it can be classified as a problem is the process of changing lenses. I swear the first time you attempt the super human feat your thumbs will bleed, causing you to wonder if it was a sick joke on the part of Dye. In all actuality, the lens changing process was a bit of a pain. Mainly reattaching the colored fram back to the lens.
#6. Also I have heard stories of Dye lenses fogging up on people in games. I really don't know how that has happened seeing how I have played both in the cold, and hot weather while wearing said mask. Never has my mask ever fogged or come close to fogging. So in my opinion the lenses don't fog. Just proper care and maintenance will prevent that!
Overall I am very impressed with the function of the Dye Invision mask system. It has proved its worth as one of the great goggle systems, and I am sure that it will continue to evolve towards greater things.
A great goggle system that has almost no flaws what so ever to its design. I am giving a 9 cause I have not the ability to judge any product a ten based on the fact that no perfect systems has yet to be created.

Nice and tight fitting on face, no fog, really comfy, just enough coverage of face.
Lack of neck protection, if needed which really isnt buy a neck protector.
this mask looks amazing and is greatly comfy but also fits very snug which makes it so that it doenst fall off ur face or even move when ur running. the cost was not an issue when i bought it becaus it is such a good mask that it is worth every penny. like i said earlier the only problem is the lack of neck protection but if u really think u need it then buy a neck protector because i dont find them neccesary. BUY THIS MASK.
BUY THIS MASK IT IS AMAZING BLOWS EVERY MASK THAT I HAVE USED BEFORE IT OUT OF THE WATER AND I HAVE PAiNTBALLED FOR OVER 5 YEARS.

I was playing some paintball in Washington State, at ...Paradise Paintball, I believe, atleast thats whats coming to mind. Anyways, I was bunkered up on a hill, with guys all around shooting up at me, and I was doin the sit up, pop shot thing, and i get a paintball or two up under my mask . had a welt on my cheekbone.
It really is a great mask and it was a very unusual angle, and horrible timing. I give ita 9 even after that incident. It was pretty much a worst case scenario, I wouldnt worry about it-im just telling my story.

I used to use a green V-Force Armor (not the rental version). This mask was good for a beginner like myself at the time.
I own (use) the following marker with the following upgrades/accessories:
Gun: Silver Tippmann 98 Custom.
Barrel (other than stock barrel): Black 14-inch Smart Parts Tear Drop barrel.
Loader/hopper: Blue Viewloader 12 volt Revolution loader (has an X-Board in it). with a View Loader Talkin' Timer (sound-activated).
Special trigger: Response trigger (I own the stock trigger on my gun with the response trigger installed; it is a single-trigger with the response system in it.).
Air source: 20 ounce CO2 tank with a blue thread protector.
Other upgrades/ accessories that are not in use on this gun are a Flatline barrel and a double trigger.
Even though it is not a marker, I have no where else to list what mask I have. I own a blue 2004 Dye Invision mask.
- GREAT ventilation.
- Great color.
- Outstanding sound when you communicate with it.
- Changing the lense.
The Dye Invision is a great mask. In the 4 times I have played with it so far, it has performed outstandingly. It never fogs up, I can breathe through it well, and when I talk through it, my teammates can hear me clearly. Like ANY mask, the lens will blur if sweat drips in it (obviously). But, just clean it out with water, and blot out the water bubbles/ spots with a soft cloth, and you're good to go! This mask is perfect for any paintballer!
Did I mention that you can see so clearly through it?
This mask is excellent. My friend, who is a skilled paintballer, owns a V-Force Profiler, which has an average price of $90. I tried it on. It's a little bit better than the Invision, because it has a wider range of view. Besides that, it's the same as the Invision. The V-Force Profiler is the only mask that is better than the Invision. I never had to, but changing the lens on the Invision is a pain (according to sources). Just get your local paintball shop to do it for you, and that obstacle has been tackled.
For some people, however, price is an issue. This is an expensive mask (the average price is around $80). But, you do get what you pay for. It's worth it to save your money for a while until you have enough to purchase this mask. It is great. Clear lens, thermal, good range of view, good looking, and comfortable. Not to mention, it is made by Dye, one of the best paintball companies in existance (in my opinion). What more could you want from a mask? A mask like this deserves a great rating. Keep up the good work, Dye, you're getting a 10/10 (100%, which is an "A" in these circumstances)!

I went out and bought this mask for 80 bucks and the first time i play with it i am so blind from the fog that i cant see a thing and i had to go to the same bunker and my buddy and have him tell me a bunker to shoot at and i just shot at a lil blur the whole game , i heard this mask would never fog but my proflex , which is half the price of a invision at 40, has never fogged and i have had it for 2 years.
Finnaly the mask is crap get a proflex save money never fog and be able to SEE!
fog much more rapidly than JT mask, "small profile" not a good thing for me
Well, I got shot in the chin one of the first games I used these for, broke the skin and didn't feel too great. That "small profile" Dye claims, I can back up, its small, bit too small if you are one graced with a large noggin.
Then this past weekend, first game, not even 5 minutes into it (20 min game), I fogged up so bad I had to call myself out cause I could barely see the bunker I was behind. I switched back to my JTs and had much less of a fogging problem.
Another guy I was playing with, same day, had to do the same in another game as he couldn't see either with his Invisions.
We both got made fun of by the guys wearing Vforce goggles, as they didn't have any fog problems all day.
They push on my nose funny, I have a big nose, so I guess thats why, but my JTs are much more comfy to me. Field of view is less than JTs.
I have since sold my Invision, to some kid, for $40. Much nicer to have $40 than the mask in my opinion.
I wish I hadn't bought these and just stuck with my JTs. Or if you like Diablo, go with the Vforce systems.
If I had the choice again, I would not get these, too expensive and not as fog resistant as other brands.
I would recommend the JT spectra goggles over the Dye Invisions.
