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

virtue membrane pad
check it on/off
16" Ultra Lite tip
So I purchased my i3's about two weeks ago, and have played 3 days, and reffed 2 days with them..
at first look, these goggles are by far the best looking goggles on the market..
comfort: the padding on these goggles is excellent, they are extremely comfortable
Performance: the profile on these is extremely low, one of the lowest on the market IMO.
the venting is excelent, you can hear everything, and better yet, everyone can hear you!
the mask is very flexible, but i have yet to get a bounce.. i have taken several shots in the "soft" part of the mask, but they all broke.. i'm hoping they need to break in some before bounce will start to occure..
lense changing: these are by far the hardest lenses to change out of every mask i've ever had.. this is the only thing that really ticks me off about this mask, every other company has designed a "quick switch" system, why can't dye?
I would definetly recomend this mask, but if i would have known how tuff the lense was to change I would have bought the Proto Axis instead. the proto's have all the same feature's as the i3's, but they also have a quick switch lense system.. for that reason i will give this product a 8/10
Proflex-better then profiler but still worse
Proto El- Worse
Dust Black NME
Comfy, bouncy, tight profile, good venting, good optics, does not fog, looks wicked.
Lens is not as quick changing as other masks but its not hard to do.
After trying the big 3 other masks (profiler, proflex, and vents) i came down to deciding between the proflex and I3. To me the profiler is total garbage, theres no way to get a bounce of it, it fogs like mad, and the combination between venting and the angled chin doesn't allow hot air (breath) to escape quickly. The vents is nice but at the time i purchased this the waiting lists were retarded and to me too many people have them. The proflex is nice however i found the vision to be a little less then what i was looking for and it just doesn't look too nice. I bought the I3 and have loved it ever since. I had multiple chin bounces my first day out and my voice projection was very good. The mask itself just looks great, especially when you put in a mirror lens. I think this is the supreme mask.
Alot of people will argue that the lenses are difficult to change. No they are not as fast as the profilier however they are by no means hard. the first couple times are difficult but then the mask loosens up a little and its a snap to get lenses in and out. Also with such a variety of lenses its easy to find one for your situation.
I really think this mask is the best one out there. Its very comfy, has a tight profile, and just looks plain wicked. The biggest issue people have are with the lenses but if they say down and tired it they would realize its really not that hard.
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!
tippmann A-5 with 14in progressive barrel 20 oz co2
Amazing venting, super comfortable, light, deflects paint, everyone can hear u in them.
Pain 2 change lens will stain with certain paint, EXPENSIVE
These are amazing goggles let me say that now and get it over with.
I have gotten hit in the mask so many times but it never breaks because of the material.
But (there is always a but somewhere) they are a pain 2 clean and whenever u get hit in the goggle the frame will leak in paint and they are a pain to take apart it took 30 mins and screwdriver 2 get the frame off.
But i think the 30 mins a week to clean the goggles is fine 4 the amazing quality they give you and it is definetly worth the money i give it a nine because of the difficult lens changing system.
I bought this mask the day before I decided to go because I thought it was about time I needed a new mask. I went to the local store and was really set on buying a Vents Avatar or Events, but they didn't have either so I bought this. I got this at a great deal for $70 and an extra lense for an extra $5.
Not very flexable but can deflect paint decently
Not a very good Quick Change System would have been better if it was like the Proto Masks
Hard to breathe for me anyways
Foam is supposed to go around or in front of the ear but for me goes right into my ear and can't hear anything.
Well I think it was a decent mask for $70. I think it's just me that doesn't find this mask very great. The thing I liked most about this mask was that it didn't fog because most masks fog waaay to fast for me. I think DYE should use the same quick change as the Proto Masks. If you have the money to buy this mask do yourself a favor and buy yourself the Proto Axis or FS or some other mask. I won't give it a bad rating because it had everything I needed except the foam at the ear.
Hard to adjust the first time,easy after 1 time. could use more neck protetction.
I bought this about a week ago and Ive used it once. I didn't get hit in the mask, but I was sprayed. I took the mask home after and tried to clean it with water, but I still had marks, then I realised that its gonna get dirty, and it can't always be clean. It a very good mask, and is one of the best. Definately worth the $85.00 , but then again everyone likes different masks that fit differently.
This mask is worth the money and feels great when you're playing SB or AB. the rubber is pretty soft, but can still take a shot. Its also durable and we all know Dye is a reliable company.
Scott goggles, Jt goggles, V-force googles none come close to the Dye i3 goggles.
Blue smart parts Ion , Blue halo B w/rip drive , pure energy 3000psi 68cu fiber wrap nitrogen tank.
Very clen, clear, thick, lenses
Very comfirtable and padded.
1.The lenses are very hard to get back in.
The Dye i3 goggle system is probably the best goggle out right now.It is flexible , the padding makes it feel that the goggle isn't even on your ace, It's easy to breathe through compared to the other goggles out there.Also it is very durable and dosn't brake like other goggles.(If you sit on this goggle if something broke it could only be the lenses the rest of the goggle can completely bend all over the place.).The lens is the thickest lens I've ever seen on a paintball goggle. And the goggle just looks like the coolest looking goggles at the feild.
Get this goggle if you are trying to get the best most comfortible goggle out there because this is it.But if you are looking into buying this goggle just don't take out the lenses cause there really hard to get back in. Get the Dye i3 today.
Yhis google is very comfortible and it is just the best goggle out right now.And its made by Dye thats always the plus.
This mask is sweet it doesnt fog up like alot of the other ones i have used and it fits very nice to your head with all the cushioning on it it looks sweet protects your face very well i paid $85 for this mask but now its down to $70 so definately buy this mask
Definately buy this mask if you got the money it wont let you down
