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 purchased a mini a few years ago and this mask came with it.

Pros: This mask is very comfortable and the foam feels great! The breathability is awesome and I also like that it came with a visor.


Cons: The lense on the mask isn't very easy to take off which normally wouldn't be a problem but most masks nowadays are. Personally I do not like the look of this mask at all and I find it very bulky.

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.

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!!!

Dye Precision I3 Pro i4's have kinda killed the i3 pro's but that aside, i3's are great masks- you can customize/swap bottoms/frames/straps, but lens replacement is obnoxious

I swapped to an i3 pro from Dye after my old reliable Flex 7 went flying off my head on a particularly gnarly superman dive into the snake... I wanted a new mask with a chin strap after that.

So instead of another Flex, I decided to try the new (at the time) i3 pro. I got the white on black one, if that matters.

It fit well and I was able to breath very easily without fogging the mask. It was a BIT large and felt like I was wearing my old Army gas mask again when I had it on, compared to the Flex 7 I was used to.

Field of view was adequate, nowhere near as good as the i4. Padding was very comfortable and the softears worked very well as well.

I ended up finding too many negatives (for my particular game style) and I sold it to buy a Flex 8.

I would probably not recommend the i3 pro unless you HAVE to wear a Dye mask and you're normal sized (the i4 won't fit you correctly).

I picked these up for $50.00 and they are by far the best mask I have ever owned....they fully cover ur face and ears....lenses are a little tricky to get out at first but once u get the hang of it...its pretty easy...they can take a hell of a beating and still function like a great dye product should....dye makes a great product and imo these out perform the i4s just based on reliability and facial coverage...they fit and sized head...and unlike the i4s they cover ur whole face....I suggest picking up a pair if u want the best coverage for ur face...

Looks - Appearance
It has the same design as the older Invision and normal I3 exept with new colored frames and bottoms. They look pretty nice in my opinion and black ones go well with almost any setup. Looks are

Weight - Appearance & Performance
Big improvment from earlier models which were quite heavy and slipped down. These are fairly light, along the weight of Proflex's and Grillz. Great job for Dye in this part. Light mask now with no slipping down what-so-ever.

Feel - Performance
Feels good on the face and conforms very nicely. Does not irritate eyes or anything like that. The straps have rubber on them to help stop slipping and they are very comfortable.

Venting - Performance
The venting on the I3 Pro is alright, not to bad, not to good. It gets pretty hot since the vents dont let out the warm air or anything like that, gets kind of annoying. Communication is more difficult than using other masks but hearing things is pretty easy. If you get a mouth shot it will probably break and will get a little paint in your mouth.

Field Of Vision - Performance
Field of Vision is really good, can see everything. Their also arnt any irritating things to get used to like the nose peice on the profilers coming up so high. Good FOV.

Safety - Reliability
Lens are good for this sport and dont scratch very easily. They are good overall. Everything else on it is safe to with maybe the exeption of the soft ears which I havent been shot with close by yet and im hoping it wont hurt or anything.

Maintainence - Reliability
Still freakin annoying as the other Invisions. Lens are a pain in the arse hole to take out and most people just give up. Dye really needs to come up with something new and easier to get the lens out. Big down for this.

Bang4Buck - Value
Overall these are great masks and if you like there design you should try and pick one up, they work good as most other high end masks and you wont be disappointed.

Disclaimer - Please Read
I take time on my reviews to make them honest and non-bias as possible, on most occasions I will spell check them and revise to. The point is I take a lot of time on this and do appreciate good ratings, or bad ratings if you feel it deserves it. Before rating please read the full review and base your ratings on my review and not the gear and my opinions on it, if you do I have no control over that but please do it just to be nice. Thanks - OTEdge
