Great mask everything is perfect on it. Dye just keeps getting better. one small problem is that the lences are hard to take out. when you take out the lences make sure to put the bottum in first then the rest should go it pretty easily. great for the value. I'm sure dye will make it easier to replace lences. They say to replace them once per year but once per two years works and saves you money.

I got this puppy on sale a while back (nobody likes gold right?).

So, I used these a lot over the year, and I'm overall impressed with it. Its very comfortable, the soft ears are great, I love the HD lens (I haven't replaced them yet), and the lenses are harder to scratch (because of the frame protects it).

-cons-

If you already read the rest of the reviews, then you know that its difficult to clean the lens. But just soak it in water for a minute, that helps a lot.

I notice it doesn't get as many bounces as Vents do (I'd say a 2/3 ratio), but that's because of the breathing holes (which are great btw).

I've had my pair of i3's for over 2 years now. The only issue I have ever had with them is the top foam coming off. In the end I just removed it and it fits more snug on my sandana. The lens is a bit tricky to remove at first.

I can not stress enough how amazing it is. Great ear pieces it stays on yur face the best it never echos how ever taking out and putting in a lens is very difficult but honestly after u get that mask you should not need a new lens this lens is amazing unless if u play in the sun alot and if u do the visor should be enough. You do not need to take the lens out to clean it trust me i clean it all the time i am a neat freak about my gear.

Dye Precision I3 Pro I loved mine(recently retired my old one) and miss it. One of the most comfortable masks I have worn. Aside from the lens being one of the most difficult to change the mask is fantastic.

Dye has a great reputation for clothing and masks. Not only are they comfortable and look good, but they perform well and last long. The I3 and I3pro masks are no exception. Between the two, the I3pros are the better buy. The built in soft ears make a big difference.

The only downfall to any Dye product is the price. While they are some of the best products on the market, they do not often justify their price. Your best bet is picking up a dye product used to save money.

Pros: HD lens and reminiscent of the classic Invision
Cons: Pain to keep clean on the field
I was so happy when the i3s came out. I had a pair of the classic Invision which I had a phenomenal experience with.

The new HD lens was the best part though. It really made everything look like high-def and would bring out all of the right colors on the field.

I still own 2 pairs to this day as both back ups and pit goggles. I'm proud to say I now use the beautiful i4s.

Appearance: The i3 Pro's look great. Dye has really stepped up on the design of the i3 Pro's from the original i3's. I rated a 4 on Appearance for the reason that the i3 Pro's appear bulky.

Performance:
Amazing. The stock lenses color is Amber. Although that color isn't very preferable, the crystal clear vision and the anti-fog on the stock lenses is nice. The only reason for an after market lenses is for looks. The stock lenses don't need to be replaced just because you have money. [Although the HD lenses are amazing...]

Comfort:
The mask is very comfortable! The stock ears are very soft and conforming. The strap serves the purpose very well and stays put.

Reliability:
I've been using this mask for a while and through rough weather [rain and snow] this mask has not fogged up, or cracked, or blemished at all under intense weather conditions. Very reliable

Value:
at 89.95 this mask is definitely worth the money. The re-sale value is around 60 dollars, but none the less, this mask should last you for a long time!

I picked up a set of i3 pros off of actionvillage a few years back right when the i4 was released I believe figuring I'd try it out and I absolutly love this mask.

Appearance: The mask in my mind looks better or just as good as any other mask on the market, it does't get five stars because I prefer the look of the dye i4's or empire events but thats all person preferance. Don't let apperance keep you from purchasing this mask if you are not a fan of it, enough said.

Performance: This mask gets four stars here because it is light and never fogs up during play. It does a excellent job of protecting your face/forehead as well as your chin and even the uppermost part of your neck. It should however be noted that changing the lens is a complete pain and may take you at ton of time (-1 star).

Reliability: I have had this mask for over 3 years and have never had one single problem with it. I had a little trouble figuring out how to get the lens out the first time I cleaned it and that is absoulutly it!

Value: If you look at getting this mask anytime after this review was made and are lucky enough to find a cheap one I deffenitly reccommend buying it. I spent $60.00 a few years back and it was worth every penny.

All in all great product dye!!!
