Lenses Don't Snap Out Easily
I went from a VForce w/ the Quick-Snap Lense Change system to the Invision. I miss that feature of the VForce, but in all other aspects, the Invision is much better.
I love the look and low, small profile of the Invision, as well as the asthetic appeal of it.
The thermal lenses are high-quality, do not fog (as long as you are sure to change them out once a year) except in the wettest, rainiest conditions, and they are available in many difference tints and fades.
DYE has always been a company of good quality (with the exception of thier autocockers), and the Invision is a mask that is fully endorsed by many Pro, Amateur, and Novice teams.
If you don't mind spending the money on a good mask, I would suggest the DYE Invision. Remember that different color kits are available if you decided that you like Red over Blue. :)
-Lens fog up pretty bad sometimes
-Offers little protection to the chin and neck area.
Overall this mask is pretty decent but not for its price. The lens aren't very tolerable and any thing other then water or antifog sprays (some can't work) can totally mess up the lens, however Dye has some very good customer service but they put too much looks into this mask then quality and I think that will be the downfall of Dye. (although I heard the Proto mask was very good
Get it if you like looks but it is alittle pricey however Dye has some very good customer service so don't worry about anything breaking.

Feels like your not wearing a mask, great field of vision, great looks
doesn't cover much, jaw sticks out when you talk
I went from a wal mart JT mask to this, and it was a great change. My mask fogged up one too many times so i saved up the cash and bought the Invision. I love it. It never fogs and looks really cool. It doesnt protect much though, so be prepared to take a few in the jaw and maybe (it happend to me) eat a lot of paint through the front vents. SOME ADVICE: WHEN BUNKERING SOMEONE, IF YOU ARE WEARING THIS MASK CLOSE YOUR MOUTH. Believe me your lip will bleed and paint doesn't taste good. Overall though GREAT MASK, as long as you dont get hit above the shoulders alot. :)
Great product, Good mask. I love it go buy one.

lense scratces real easy, takes forever to take apart
This is a good mask when you first get it, but you have to be very careful because it gets scratched real easy and the replacement lenses are $25. If you mess up the stuff on antifog coating on the inside it will fog like a mofo, and it is easy to mess that antifog coating up, all it takes is some water and then wiping the water off and the antifog stuff will go with it. this mask sucks when you have to take it apart it takes like an hour to replace the lense (i dont know if the new ones made of rubber are any better)
I think this is the coolest looking mask you can buy. It is super comfortable (sometimes its hard to tell if you got shot in the mask) and will not fog if the antifog coating on the inside isnt messed up.
I reccomend buying this mask if you play alot of speedball, if you play in the woods you will probably scratch the lense. The only other mask that is comparable to this one is the Proteus and it is ugly. This is the best mask in the world if you dont mess the lense up.
Sweet looking, anti fogging, good ventilation, talk though
a little small, hard for me to take out the lense
I love this mask. Mine is a 2003 smoke. It looks good, fits well, doesnt fog up, you can breath and talk easily, I like the woven rubber it is eay to clean. Some masks muffel your voice. I plan on buying the chrome looking lenses. I am also planning on buying a neck protector because it doesnt help you there. I also wear a bennie so i dont get hit on my head.
So the only thing bad about this mask is the lack of protection and hard to disasemble
I love it. You should buy one........or two!!!!! haha have fun
The Dye invision is the best mask ever to be made its veriaty in colors is only matched by its light weight and durabilit it is awsome its hard to put in words people say JT is more comfertable i disagree because of one thing 3 layer padding the face peace of the Dye Invision is conected to a tripple layer padding that goes around your face there is nothing more to say but this is the best investment you could ever make
there is no equal mask and the thought it only costs about 60 bucks is only making the deal sweeter
Extremely good ventilation
Good side protection
Price- a little high
THis mask is awesome. There are these vents that make it really easy for people to hear you. They never fog, and th ventilation is superb. It has a visor that is flexible. It also looks awesome. It comes in black with the vents olive, smoke, black, red and yellow.
I say definetly get this mask. The only problem is the price which for this mask makes some sense. I give it a 10 no question
Probably the best looking mask on the market today. Has a great FOV offer about the same horizontal FOV and more vertical FOV than the flex 7. Comfort is on par if not better than the flex due to the straps not coming out of adjustment, great ventilation on it also. Although it is a little heavier than the flex, it has a smaller profile. It actually cover a lot of the forehead with out a visor, which is always a plus. It is also very close to the face, so you can get up right behind your marker and not have to worry about a bolt or back block coming at you. The straps are also great, they will NEVER come out of adjustment. The only thing bad about the invision was that they started to fog when I stood around with them on for about 10 minutes. It was probably due to the weather since it was cold and raining outside, combined with the body heat. Removing and installing the lens is pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
All in all this is a great mask. If you want a small profile without losing any FOV this is the way to go.

Poor visability (in relation), Fog, inner lense film is CRAP
I really want to like these goggles. But like many DYE products these are overrated my friends. Don't let all the fan boys set you wrong... (ie... If its DYE it HAS to be good). I really like the way the mask looks and for all intense and purpose, its very comfortable... that is where the good pretty much ends...
I've worn several other masks that look good too, feel good, and have better field of view (not that the invision is horrible, just not the best). The lenses have cool color choices, but they are VERY difficult to switch, which leads to my biggest problem... The first day I played with these, I wiped the inside of the clear lens that came with them and noticed almost immediately that the inner film started to tear and rip and form ripples... (just from a little moisture???) The rest of the day was pretty much a wash because not only could I not see through this now ruined film, but fogging blinded me.
I accepted that ok, maybe this is a lemon lens, and maybe I mis-handled it, since I really didn't need to mess with the inner lens. I read the instructions, and they state a small amount of dabbing with a moist cotton rag should be fine on the inner lens (maybe I was too heavy with it?)
Well I bought a new cooler looking red fade lens, installed it, and just finished playing a day with it... Guess What? the inner film is crumpling on the NEW lens... I didn't touch it, though my fiance did wipe it very gently with a barely damp cloth (cotton)
So I have to spend 25-30 dollars every time I play and switch for new lenses??? one lens could have been a fluke, the second situation makes it a real problem...
I may keep these around for a backup pair. I'm going to see if DYE stands behind its products and if they can educate me as to how to keep the lenses in working order... (I hope that you are allowed to clean the inside somehow)
UPDATE: I've talked to my local pro-shop about this and they have replacement lenses coming for me. Though I am a bit hesitant to trust these new lenses completely, I have to improve my rating based on this incredible level of customer support. (3 to 6)...
If these replacements work well, I will come rewrite this review.
Cool Looking, and well thought out, but poor inner lense film makes these masks useless... unless you never have to clean the inside... (yeah right)
