Review:Dye I3 Pros
Ive been using my Proto FS goggles for about a year now.Ive Been getting a couple of problems with them.Fogging,Ripped Foam,Water in the Lense,and its actually kinda heavy IMO.So last week I decided to to get a new pair of goggles.I went to my local paintball store and tried on a few.The Profilers,Grillz,and the I3 Pros.After trying on the Grillz and the Profilers I slipt on the I3 Pros and my God these are friggen comfortable.But $100 WOW.But I got them for $85(Military Discount).BTW I would of gotten the Grillz but they only had them in Red and Blue,I wanted them in Lizard.So anyways theres my story and now on to the review.

-LOOK
This Goggle looks beautiful.Just like Dyes other stuff.The Olive and Black matches nicely with my Ultalites.

-FLEXIBLITY
The bottom area of this mask is very flexable.Great for someone is looking for a flexable mask for the stock.Im not sure if this premotes bounces.Havnt played with these yet.And the entire mask can bend.So it'll fit just about any size head.

-LENSE
The lense it comes with is the best lense I have ever used.Its has AntiFog coating and a Anti Scratch coating.But whats really awsome is it comes standard in Smoke(Kinda Orangish)Which is great when that sun gets in your eyes.And has great peripheral vision and crystal clear.Almost like wearing a pair of $150 sun glasses.But it is a pain in the butt to get out.It took me 30 minutes to get them out.Its even harder to get them back in.But after the first time its very easy.

-COMFORT
This mask is extremely comfortable.The foam is very soft on your skin.The Soft ears is the best feature.Its very soft on your ears and wont rub against them.I put them on and ran around my backyard and they wont move up and down.The rubber like material on the strap is great.It keeps the back of the mask from moving anywhere.I have held all of my friends masks and this is the lieghtest.Its only 10oz(Without Visor).It almost feels like your not wearing anything at all.The soft ears keep you very cool under the heat.And make the mask light as a feather

-CONCLUSION
So far I give this mask a 9/10....-1 because changing the lense is a pain and the price.This mask is great and totally worth every penny.Now for the momet you have all been waiting for....The PICTURES!!!

Great review, I was thinking about getting either this or an e-vent.

UPDATE

Sorry for the delay guys,kinda forgot about this lol.The I3s were awsome.The weather was pretty bad though.It was 64 degrees and was drizzling.But there was no fogging at all.And im still loving how light these are.I can were this mask on all day.But as soon as I got home it took forever to get the lense off the frame.But its getting alout easier to take them off.

Nice review!
I have the Dye I3 Thermals with the soft ear pieces and love them!!! My mask has never fogged, I live in Hot and Humid south Texas so that means a lot to me.

I have some I3s. They are nice. Padding everywhere and no fogging. They have a very small profile, almost too small though. If you have a large chin, somewtimes it sticks out. Also, sometimes it just isn't as comfertable as my Vforces though. Something with the ears. I would stay with my profiler personally, it fits my face better. Besides that, the I3s are a great brand of masks.

Do you have a thermal lense? Probably not.. Try getting one then see how they work. You may need to clean the lense too.
