the good-
The I4 looks and feels incredible and with a wide variety of color options you can match it to your whole set up. It breathes very well and I have had no issues with fogging even playing in very humid and very hot weather.

The cons-
The only real issue is they are small which offers less protection than most other masks. It isn't that big of an issue unless you get shot in the forehead or just below the side of your chin.

Overall I think the I4 is a great mask but if I were looking for a new mask right now I would get a Virtue VIO just because it offers a little more protection and they are very underrated therefore you will probably be the only one wearing it at the field.

Dye Precision I4 Thermal Paintball Goggles I love Dye mask systems, very easy to breathe in, great field of vision and the easy change lense is great. So many different lenses and styles of the mask. Wouldn't use anything else

When I got my i4's they felt amazing conformed to my face very well, my only dispute was the tightness of the strap at the back, but all I did was take out the stitching and stitched it up again but giving it a little slack and now they fit amazing! One of the best goggles Ive used and I love the audio coming in and being able to comunicate much easier with team mates.

Very nice, a little on the small side, if you have a big head dont buy these unless your comfortable getting shot in the mouth when yelling.

The logos and other pieces glued on have a tendency to fall off. And if you sweat a bit the foam falls apart from itself aswell...


All in all you will get your moneys worth out of it. And look sexy doing it.

Coming back to the sport in 2013, I purchased a full net setup of gear, including a Dye I4 mask. Fast forward 2 seasons and I'm now using a VForce Grill as my primary mask, and likely will soon be splitting time between a Grill and Virtue VIO. For me personally, masks designs are a bit more advanced than the I4 these days, especially in the world of high end paintball masks.

While the Dye I4 certainly isn't a poor offering in regards to high end paintball masks, it just doesn't hold up to some of the newer masks on the market. But before we get into the bad, let's review the good:
The I4's biggest asset is its field of view. It has an oversized lens that offers really solid downard vision and all around great peripheral vision. It definitely beats out my Grill when it comes to peripheral vision, especially downward. It gets the job done well enough in regards to "breathability" and hearing/voice communication on the field as well. I also like the aesthetic look of the mask, it is very sleek and encourages bounces. One last thing worth mentioning that's nice about the mask is the lens change system - I always found it to be super simple and easy, which is a big plus.

The I4's sleek and low profile design looks great, but is also one of the mask's biggest flaws. The I4 doesn't offer full face protection, even for those with smaller heads/faces - like mine. My jawline is fairly exposed in the I4, and I let the mask sit a bit low, which then exposes more of my forehead consequently. My Grill definitely offers a bit more protection for those nasty jawline and neck shots, and is just generally a much fuller mask. Additionally, the I4 doesn't come stock with a visor, and although I'll only use a visor on rainy days, it's nice to have available for when the time comes. Furthermore, Dye doesn't even make an aftermarket visor that you can purchase separately for the I4, at least as far as I know. You can however purchase a Virtue VIO visor and make it work with the I4, from what I understand.

Overall, I wouldn't say the I4 is a bad mask at all, but it just isn't as nice as some of the newer masks like the Grill and VIO.

Dye Precision I4 Thermal Paintball Goggles These goggles are very nice all around. Since I have a smaller head, they fit just right on me. The only problem that I see with them is that sometimes it can be very hard to breathe in them.

You do seem to get a bit of an echo in them and I can deff see why people complain about them being small. I am a small guy so they perfectly fine on me, but for most people I would think they would feel a bit claustrophobic. Overall I really like my I4's!
