Very Stylish, Extremely Comfortable. Sturdy Straps- Keeping the mask on your face very well.
Price, but thats what you get for a great product.
I received this mask the other day in the mail after a long wait. right once i looked at the small but beautiful packaging. I wonder if some large portion of the $85 went right into the box. This has to be the coolest and most nice looking goggle box i have ever seen. once i opened it. i saw one of the best looking goggle systems looking back up at me. After i pulled this mask out of the box and took a good look at it i realized that style and durability was in mind when the making of this mask was conceived. Once i put it on i felt why this mask was almost 90bucks. it felt so good. I barley relized i was wearing it in the first place. i then took a few laps around my house to see how well this mask keeps from fogging up and it lasted better then i expected. it barley fogged it all. great overall mask.
i would reccommend this goggle system. Its pretty near perfect besides the price. great look. even greater feel.

So far with the I-3's I've have excellent results. So far I have had no balls break on the mask, they just bounce right off. It has a great fit, looks cool and comes in some awsome colors
(mine are gray & yellow). They never fog up or slide around on my face, even when things get visious.
Other than the lens being hard to get out, I see no weaknesses in the googles themselves.
Dye has really out done themselves this time, it only makes me wonder want the next goggle system will come out looking like.
This googles are what made me a Dye fan, in their quality of product.
Buy these goggles. They just recently dropped in price!
If you are stiil reading this, you haven't bought them yet. Why?

The dye invision i3 is an excellent mask, the first thing i was surprised about was the size which is tiny!!!, when i compare to my proto switch it looks almost half the size! i didnt get one fogging issue the whole played and i find breathing in the mask very easy and your face keeps cool when you play. most people say the lense change to be difficult which i have to admit its alot harder then my proto switch but all it really takes is a bit of force and now i find changing the lenses to be no problem.
used empire avatar and some crappy one that came with my gun
my timmy and halo b w/ rip drive and a 14'' freak barrel
you can see everything
covers whole face
None really.... doesnt reach whole neck
All i can say is damn!!! i bought this mask in a swap meet for 70 bux and it is the nicest mask out there its so comfortable withits 2 layered foa and lemme tell you it fits realy good on youre face. the best thing about this mask is its a chick magnet! lol it is all around a great mask
If you have the money this is the mask you should get.....so what you waiting for?! go get one!

None that I can think of
This mask is the most comfortable mask ive ever worn......Its got great ear padding ....and not to mention the black velvet chin pad......it is perfectly vented where you can breath like you werent even wearing a mask.....you can also hear what a person is saying quite clearly.....
This Mask is the best on the market for looks and sheer design
JT, Scott, VForce Profiler
The JT and Scott masks arent camparable,
the profiler has similar vision benefits,
just wasnt that comfortable in comparison
Field of Vision
Lens change difficult
I Picked this mask up a couple of weeks ago after mask shopping for a while, I finally decided on the I3 for initial reasons of looks, field of vision (you forget the mask is on) and comfort (fit like a glove, and man is it light). After getting it home and trying it for a few games, it fit well, and even at a full run didnt bounce loose or move really at all. I havent had the ball bounce yet, but then again I have only been hit once, and it was in the lens. At the end of the day my only gripe wasnt with performance, but with cleanup. The lens was a nightmare to get out which left my thumbs sore, but other than that reassembly wasnt too bad.
This is a great mask system for any level user, and If you dont mind putting up the cash (well worth it in my opinion) it is a definate buy, and the only thing that hold me back from a perfect 10 is the lens changing difficulty.

Price, changing the lens
I think the mask is even more important than the gun, I mean it protects your eyes. Also a mask must be really really comfy and this one is great. I wore mine from 9 am till 5pm today, had it off very little and it is very comfortable. The mask is great for bounces especially around the cheeks and ears. It fits really really close to your face to which is awesome when your trying to stay tight. The vision range is great as well. I only have one real complaint keeping it from a perfect ten and that is the inability to change the lens. It is a lot harder than it should be on this high end mask.
Overall even with the lens being hard to remove I would definately suggest this product to anyone.

Still a big pain to change the lenses like the older invision masks.
I bought this mask becuase I have always loved Dye products. It looks great and has excellent ventilation. This mask also offers great field of vision but IMO the JT Flex's have even better field of vision. It's a very big chore to change the lenses and will leave your fingers very sore. Did I mention it's hard to change the lenses?
THis is a great product, you will like it once you get calluses on your fingertips. THen it wont hurt so much to take the lenses off. I give it a 9 because dye still hasnt changed this problem.
